Discover the beauty and spirit of Buzzards Bay at the Coalition’s 25th anniversary Buzzards Bay Swim in New Bedford and Fairhaven on Saturday, June 30!

The Buzzards Bay Swim features a one-of-a-kind scenic point-to-point course across outer New Bedford Harbor. Assisted by the U.S. Coast Guard and a local safety patrol, swimmers navigate 1.2 miles through the harbor and channel, passing by the iconic Butler Flats Lighthouse and the New Bedford Hurricane Barrier, one of the largest stone structures on the East Coast. At the thrilling finish at Fort Phoenix State Reservation, swimmers are welcomed with a beach party featuring a live steel drum band, pancakes cooked to order, gourmet coffee, free massages, and local beer!

$25 registration fee and $150 fundraising minimum (pay-or-raise) includes parking, shuttle service, bag check, swim cap, chip timing, snacks, breakfast, beverages, event t-shirt, water bottle, swag bag, live music, free massage, awards, prizes, and a hefty bronze finisher’s medal custom made by local artisans. Qualifications apply. Special rates available for youth teams.

Cost: $25 registration fee/$150 fundraising minimum
