With amazing sea swimming spots like the Forty Foot and Seapoint nearby on Dublin Bay, Dun Laoghaire–based Viking Marine (based at the Pavillion in Dun Laoghaire opposite the Royal St. George Yacht Club) is expanding its product range for open water swimmers

The leading Irish chandler has announced the arrival of the Orca swimming range, a leading brand in OWS and Triathlon equipment providing high-quality aerodynamic products.

Viking marine's Marion Goodall says Open water swimmers have highlighted the importance of staying visible and warm. 'This is why we brought the Orca Neoprene Swim Cap into our range. The hi-vis orange neoprene cap is cut with a built-in chinstrap making sure it is secure on your head and covers your ears preventing potential swimmer's ear while keeping you warm and visible.

To keep you visible in the water, Viking has selected Orca's Safety Buoy. Designed in a hi-vis orange material this dry bag will ensure you are seen from ashore and by boats and lifeguards.

Its built-in bladder provides swimmers with a resting cushion and a storage compartment for your valuables. When you are done swimming and you dried yourself with your Gul changing poncho, pack your wetsuit along with any other wet items in its dry bag compartment and simply throw the bag onto your shoulders thanks to its adjustable lanyard.

An ideal partner to any winter water-based activity. The cap is a perfect addition to our swimming range which includes items like the Gul Power Gloves and Rooster Supertherm Socks. 

This is the start of a growing range and Viking hope to receive shortly the Orca Open Water One Piece wetsuit and other Orca products.
