For the first time ever, you can swim under the iconic Auckland Harbour Bridge in our brand new ‘Swim The Bridge’ event, on Saturday 6 April 2019. That’s right, in addition to running and cycling over ‘the coat hanger’ at other major recreational sporting events, you’ll be able to experience the Bridge like never before – from the water - in the final event of the Banana Boat New Zealand Ocean Swim Series for 2018/19.

After 14 years of harbour swims, with the former Harbour Crossing swim, we think it’s time to kick things up a notch and introduce Swim The Bridge, a whole new ocean swimming experience under one of New Zealand’s most recognisable icons.

Two awesome swim distances are on offer at the first ever Swim The Bridge event, giving you the choice to make the most of the epic open water and views of the Bridge’s underbelly.

The Single Crossing 1km starts from Northcote Point and takes you under the eastern clip on lanes, across to the finish line on the city side at Harbour Bridge Park.

If you’re a competent swimmer and keen for a unique challenge, have a crack at the Double Crossing 2km, taking you from the city side at Harbour Bridge Park across to Northcote Point then across the width of the bridge and back along the eastern clip on lanes.

Whether you are a first time ocean swimmer or ‘seasoned salty’, we know you’ll love Swim The Bridge.

Please note, there are no Banana Boat OceanKids Series events at Swim The Bridge – check out the six kids events around the country.
