noun - Swim trek is a non-competitive swim or open water swimming tour in a natural open body of water including oceans, lakes, rivers, bays and reservoirs, performed for pleasure, adventure or fitness at any time of the day or night. A swim trek is generally done with partners, teammates or with tour members as part of guided tours, along coastlines, in lakes or around islands, although it can be done anywhere. It can be done with or without equipment being towed along or transported from location to location, or in wetsuits and snorkels with buoyant backpacks that carries gear.

Open water swimming races, competitions, camps, clinics, events, solo channel swims or marathon swimming relays are not considered to be a sea trek.
