Connect with real nature

Dive into the clear ocean waters of Gnarabup Bay and immerse yourself in its incredible, pristine environment.

Experience the changing sensations as you move through the water, being part of the interplay between waves and ocean tides.

A brand new kids race

Exciting news! This year, we’re introducing a 200m Kids’ Race for all those aged 9-13. The event will be held straight after the classic race, with lots of water safety and a course that goes out and back from the beach.

Parents are encouraged to swim with your kids if they have big feelings about swimming that far! $15 entry per child. Kids race entry is free for parents.

It's a race, but it's not about winning

Whether you’re a seasoned racer or new to swimming, our event caters to all. If you’re up for a challenge, we’ve got a competitive start, but if relaxation is your style, join the leisurely swimmers and soak in the stunning hues of Gnarabup Bay.

Swim your way

If you need to wear neoprene, flippers, a pull buoy or a snorkel you can. You won’t be allowed to win but you can definitely have fun. No hand paddles allowed.

Awesome Merch

As a participant, you'll receive an opportunity to get hold of some very limited event merch. For the first time we have produced event trucker hats and visors to keep you in the shade.

Only $30. Available soon.

Post Swim Connection

After the swim we encourage you to stay for the kids race (it'll be quick) and then for the fastest man and women awards. We'll then conduct our legendary random prize draw based on your race number with lots of amazing prizes from local wineries, food businesses, accommodation providers and many others.
