Swim for clean water at the 31st annual Buzzards Bay Swim on Saturday, June 22, 2024!

Just 50 miles south of Boston, the Buzzards Bay Swim is a one-of-a-kind scenic point-to-point open water swim across outer New Bedford Harbor. Assisted by a robust 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, swimmers are welcomed with a beach party featuring a live steel drum band, pancakes cooked to order, gourmet coffee, and local beer!

The Buzzards Bay Swim is an open water swim benefiting the Buzzards Bay Coalition, a nonprofit that works to protect clean water in our region. $25 registration fee and $300 fundraising minimum ($150 for youth) includes parking, shuttle service, bag check, swim cap, chip timing, snacks, breakfast, beverages, event t-shirt, live music, awards, prizes, and a hefty bronze finisher’s medal custom made by local artisans. Qualifications apply. Special rates available for youth teams and lifeguards.
