Sea trekking

From Openwaterpedia

verb - Sea trekking is non-competitive swimming 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. Sea trekking 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 relays are not considered sea trekking.
