Forget your bathing suit and slip into your birthday suit! Releasing her inhibitions, globetrotter and extreme adventurer, Eve Kelly, travels the world in search of nature’s most exotic swimming holes, grottos and hot springs in the premiere of the six-part series SKINNY DIP – following the huge success of last year’s one-hour special. Beginning Wednesday, November 18 at 10 p.m. ET/11 p.m. PT on Travel + Escape, SKINNY DIP follows the 25-year-old Newfoundlander as she approaches unsuspecting strangers and challenges them to a dip in the buff in some of the most stunning natural springs on Earth. Kelly braves the fierce winter of the Canadian Yukon for an old-fashioned polar dip, traipses through volcanic geysers in New Zealand to test the waters of organic pools and hikes the exotic Costa Rican rainforest all for the chance to experience the ultimate SKINNY DIP!
Situated at the end of a steep mountain climb or down a deep gorge in the spray of a waterfall, natural swimming holes become a time and a place of their own, as everyone who has ever soaked in one will attest. Undaunted by the demanding trek required to get to nature’s most hard-to-reach pools, Kelly finds the challenges and hazards a truly invigorating adventure.
You don’t have to be a nudist, an exhibitionist or a college student to enjoy taking a skinny dip. People of all ages, genders and body shapes enjoy nude swimming, and one of those people just happens to be Eve Kelly!
Along with her, Kelly enlists a band of strangers from the local community to join in on the physically challenging journey. But however difficult – even menacing at times – their expedition is, an unforgettable encounter with nature is the promised reward.
