Seahiking: the immersive water workout

Seahiking is playing in the sea for grown-ups! Due to the sea water’s dynamics, seahiking helps you improve your physical and mental health on all fronts. As a seahiker, you learn to read the sea, as well as respond to it in diverse ways. Seahiking is safe, accessible and can be done nearly 365 days a year – waves or no waves.

Stay up to date!

Seahiking is growing fast as a sport along the coast of the Netherlands! Every week, new locations and trainers join.

Via our newsletter and social media we keep everyone up to date on where seahiking is being offered, how you can get involved and how the sport continues developing.

Promo: among the first 500 followers of our Instagram account we are raffling off a FREE seahiking session for 8 persons!

Questions and answers

Is seahiking safe?

Safety is always first. Every participant wears a Restube: a safety belt containing an inflatable buoy. We have never yet had to use one during a seahiking session, but in case we do, it’s always there. In addition, every instructor is wearing a GPS system, SafeTrx, with which they can alert the coast guard with a push of a button – even without a mobile signal.

Do I need to purchase anything for seahiking?

Not necessarily! We operate from a surf centre where you can rent a wetsuit. The other gear – a special paddle and the safety belt – is included in the session.

Isn’t it too cold?

You always wear a wetsuit of the right thickness and in the cold winter months, you wear extra shoes, gloves and a cap. We also do a proper warming up and the instructor always keeps a good eye on everyone. That way, we can go seahiking safely all year round – even in the winter, it warms you up!

I’m not in great shape. Am I able to join?

No worries. If you find that a certain exercise too difficult, we can adjust it to your level. If you’re concerned, it could be a good idea to join a first session on a day when the sea is quiet.
