Find a beach, check the water quality, and share your trip with your friends.
The Swim Guide makes it easy to explore and enjoy the best beaches in these areas — Alabama, Alberta, British Columbia, California, Charleston SC, Florida, the Great Lakes, the Ottawa River region, and parts of Oregon and Washington State. We add new areas weekly.
Version 2.0 for Android will be packed with new features and work well on the newest Android devices. Stay tuned, it is coming soon!
You can list the beaches closest to you, browse the map, or search for a beach by name. Every beach is marked with a Green, Yellow, or Red icon so you know when a beach is safe for swimming and when it is not safe.
The Swim Guide is the best tool for enjoying the beach:
– Find your closest beach
– Discover a wide variety of beaches, ranging from city parks to remote lakes ideal for camping
– Compare real-time and historical water quality information for many different beaches
– Get directions to the beach of your choice
– Bookmark your favourite beaches for easy access
– Share your favourite beaches with friends on Facebook and Twitter
The Swim Guide gives you original descriptions with photographs of over 1,500 different beaches so you can learn a bit of history and geography as you explore!
The Swim Guide integrates with the maps app, so you can get walking, transit, or driving directions to the beach of your choice.
The Swim Guide connects to Twitter, Facebook, email, and SMS text messaging. Share the beaches you love with your friends. Send them directions so they can join you!
The Swim Guide helps you report any pollution problems or environmental concerns that you may spot when you are at the beach. Use the Report button to notify your local Waterkeeper, and we will help you protect your beach.
The Swim Guide is the only charity app of its kind:
– Like to swim? The app connects you to water organizations working to protect your beach
– Want to get involved? The app helps you volunteer, learn more, or donate to charity
The Swim Guide was created by Lake Ontario Waterkeeper. Fraser Riverkeeper in Vancouver, North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper in Edmonton, Ottawa Riverkeeper, and Biscayne Bay Waterkeeper in Miami were the first to join Swim Guide. Today, there are Waterkeepers and beaches all over Alabama, California, and Florida. Many more beaches and many more areas will be added, until Swim Guide helps you find beaches everywhere in Canada and the USA.
