Keen to jump-start your open water season? Or maybe you feel like braving April water temperatures to reach glory? Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition at Mattapoisett Town Beach as we swim for the enjoyment of the sea – and the pipin’ hot cup of cocoa afterwards.

The average temperature for this time in April in Mattapoisett Harbor is around 45F, so wetsuit, goggles, and a bright colored cap are required.

Neoprene caps, booties and gloves are recommended.

Friends and family members who would like to join us on a kayak for added safety are more than welcome — just remember to dress for the weather!

Meet on Onset Pier, located on Onset Avenue. Please check our Facebook page or event page on the day of for potential weather-related cancellations.
