See below for three of our latest customers interviews filmed on our Montenegro location.
Borut: Hi Dave, you started swimming three weeks ago by watching Youtube clips and here you end up swimming in open water. How was that experience?
Dave: Spectacular, the water was crystal clear, there was not too much swell, so it was really useful for first time open water swimmer, I really enjoyed it.
Borut: What was the most exciting when you went into the water, what did you feel different than swimming in a pool?
Dave: It was the non stop, no turns, you could just keep going and practise your stroke. So I really found out that beneficial because I did have to keep stopping at the end. I think that benefited me.
Borut: Did you feel safe swimming with us while you were in the water or on a boat with us?
Dave: Absolutely, there is a boat close by, so I kept aiming for the boat and if I ever felt worried, I could just grab the hold of the boat, take on some water and set off again.
Borut: Thank you very much and we hope to see you again the future.
Borut: You came all the way from Australia. How was swimming in Montenegro for you as you have done our trip twice?

Ann: Thoroughly enjoyed, I love Montenegro. That´s why I came back this year, to explore the country.
