Our Heritage

Based in the English Lake District surrounded by water, Puffin Swim launched in 2018 and grew out of an excellent heritage.

Puffin Swim was developed by Pete and Andrea Kelly who run the adventure swimming company Swim the Lakes. They have pioneered adventure swimming in the Lake District since 2005 and are specialists in outdoor swimming wetsuits and equipment.

Made For Adventure

Puffin Swim is made for swimming adventures, floating down rivers, bobbing along bays, trekking to mountain tarns and gliding along the coast. To go wherever your swimming adventure takes you.
We’ll keep you active, we’ll inspire you to explore a lake, to swim an ocean, to push your boundaries, to relax into your rhythm, and best of all to find yourself.

Passionate About Swimming

Puffin Swim is passionate about swimming outdoors and the real adventure of using swimming as a means to explore the wild environment and travel through open water.
For this, we need reliable, good equipment that will empower us, improve our experience and be functional.

We rely on good equipment day in, day out, for work and play. We have tried and tested all of our products and will continue to source and design the best products for the greatest experiences.
