The Banana Boat NZ Ocean Swim Series team returns to the tranquil, and warm waters of the Far North!

The Bay of Islands once again plays host to one of the most scenic harbour crossings on the yearly swim calendar. The premier event – The Beach to Bay 3.3km is guaranteed to leave you in awe as you leave one of the far norths most stunning beaches, and then find your feet on the heritage-rich, quaint and quiet, seaside town of Russell, Bay of Islands. It is going to challenge you just as much as it is going to blow your mind.

And of course, with many more distances on offer – this is one for the whole family! The Banana Boat OceanKids will hold 2 different distances to tire the kids out before you go and enjoy some of the beauitiful sights, sounds, & food Russell has to offer.

Back this season by popular demand  – the Amphibian!
Swim, run …. & SWIM! Take it on with your mates after your main swim and settle a few scores on a beautiful, senic, fun, run to mix it up. Its great way to enjoy an exhibition style event for a little added flair to your day.
