Ocean swimming has been growing in popularity over the last 17 years, with many thousands participating in events around the country. The Napier Port Ocean Swim will take its rightful place in the national calendar of ocean swims, and become an iconic event in the Hawke’s Bay sporting calendar.
New to ocean swimming? Join a local training group or gain experience with Sport Hawkes Bay's Open Water Swim Confidence Series, held this summer at Sandy Beach by Napier Port. Read more >
The Napier Port Ocean Swim is held in the relatively sheltered waters along Napier's Hardinge Road. This allows a grand spectacle for supporters along the domain and walkways next to the course. A carnival atmosphere will be created with support from the wider Ahuriri district with its many cafés and bars.
