Banana Boat Ocean Swim Series is back

11 August 2020

We're excited to be a part of the Banana Boat Ocean Swim Series again this season.

From 500m to 5km swims,  swims for kids and even the Amphibian swim-run events, you are sure to find an event and experience that’s right for you.

This year we are returning sponsors for three events:

Le Grande Swim, Akaroa, 20 February 2021

Taking place in the picturesque seaside village of Akaroa with an incredible line-up of swims to choose from, starting in the morning this time around to maximise the tranquil conditions in the bay.

Legend of the Lake, Rotorua, 20 March 2021

The blue waters and native forest of Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake) makes the Generation Homes Legend of the Lake a very special experience for swimmers and spectators at our only fresh water event in the Series. 

Plus this time we'll also be hosting the 2021 New Zealand Secondary School Open Water Championships in conjunction with Swimming New Zealand. Witness the very best young swimmers in the country battle it out at with competitors gunning for the top honours in the 3.5k, 1000m and 500m distances

The Mount Swim (previously Sand to Surf)

The soft golden sands and rolling surf is the epitome of a classic Kiwi summer scene, so we’re pumping up this popular event to celebrate everything there is to love about Mt Maunganui’s natural beachfront, island and mountain landscape at The Generation Homes Mount Swim.

We'll also host the prestigious Global Swim Series – Global Championships for the first time ever in New Zealand! Swimmers entered in the 2.8km swim will be automatically registered for the Championship event and swim alongside some of the best in the world.
