“Was special event, need special giveaways like massage”
“This event was a very good experience for a 500m swim at the emirates palace bay. The swimming cap, shirt, and goody bag was very good and I would love to join again next year. I would recommend this event for anybody at any age.”
“Very well-organised event, clear communication and instructions were given by the staff. Nice to get a finisher t-shirt!”

“Enjoyable. Great location. Plenty of parking. I like the givaway T-shirt a lot. Timing was impeccable and published very quickly. Marshalling and routing may be improved some people struggled. "Finish" sign was not needed on the gate inside the water, I had impression that not many people really ran outside the water after passing that gate, having impression that they have already finished.”
“Clear instructions, good staff, well organised! Well done! ”
“Clear instructions, nice volunteers, nice layout, clear course, nice finisher t-shirt, perfect timing services and a nice post race re-fueling bag with fruits and muffin :-) Perfect !”
“Absolutely fantastic event, really enjoyed the organization, the location, the course were fantastic.
Highly recommend it to anyone. I look forward to the next race, and I only wish it was more frequent than annually.”
“Showers not available
should be there after swimming”
“Great morning out for all”
“It's a good day out if you're a solo swimmer or want to bring your family down. It's a shame that the official finish line is so far up the beach for a swim - would like to have known my official swim time. And i also managed to pick up the wrong timing chip from registration - a simple name check would have helped me avoid that (as would checking the name on the envelope before the race of course).
“The event was very well-organised; thank you sponsors, volunteers and lifeguards. The giveaways were great. Security was really good. I was one of the lucky participants who got a free entry to this event - thank you, Daman ActiveLife! I will definitely recommend this to my friends and am looking forward to the next open water event.”
“This was an awesome event! Would like to do it next year as well :) ”
“I enjoyed the Swim Fest just as much as last time. Very well organised event with helpful staff. A very fun family day out and I especially liked the food trucks this year. ”
“Great location, good swim, will be back next year = you could add a run around the grounds to make it into an optional duathlon ? I would like to have had some age categories also ”
“Hope to bring more of my friends next time...the more the merrier...wooohooo”
“I have run a couple hundred running races, but this was the first open water swim race I have done - thanks! I enjoyed it! I obviously cannot compare the technical aspects of race organization, etc., but for anyone out there who is considering their first open water race, this one was perfect. Very manageable sized race, great atmosphere, clear instructions, very supportive staff, etc. Thank you to the race organizers - I had fun and have just signed up for another Open Water Swim Race! ”
