Socially distanced swimmer loops during government restrictions are a 400m loop and a 150m loop. (subject to change)

NORMAL OPERATION: We have a 400m/750m & 1000 loop available dependant on water temperature.

Look for the pontoon opposite the Crystal Cafe (Siemens building), entrance is at the gate onto this pontoon. We have banners on the fencing by the gate and the pontoon is covered with green Astro turf. You can't miss us! 
The closest station is Royal Victoria on the DLR and is only a few minutes walk. If you get lost head toward the Emirates Skyline Cable Car building. The cable cars actually travel over our us. It is very beautiful  
There will be coached 1-2-1 sessions, and for anyone who would like to train in groups, three levels of coaching courses. If interested in this or a club coached session, just like a normal swim club please contact us here

All swimmers must wear their NOWCA Safety Wristband every time they swim.
It's your personal profile on your wrist, you use it to scan yourself in to and out of the water.
As operators, we will know who and how many swimmers are in the water, at any time. This is important for managing your swim safety.
For you as a swimmer, wearing your NOWCA Safety Wristband will speed your entry into the water plus record your swim time and distance, just like wearing a chip at an event.

If you are new to NOWCA and don't have a NOWCA safety wristband, please sign up online before your first swim at and hit the red 'REGISTER' button at the top of the page, complete the form, citing our venue name and you will be able to collect your band from us ready for your first swim!

Your safety wristband can be used at all the NOWCA safety accredited lakes and venues all over the country.
