We are planning to hold the 13th annual Hanalei Bay Swim Challenge on July 25, 2020. This will certainly depend on the status of the COVID-19 situation, but if things are safe we hope you can come join us! Go to our Facebook Page to check out the great photos from last years event. Nothing like a beautiful day in Hanalei!!! For more info contact us at hanaleibayswim@gmail.com.

The HBSC, named one of the top 100 American Open Water Swims by the World Open Water Swimming Association, consists of fun and competitive races for all ages from Keiki to Snorkel and Fin.

Participants from Hawaii, the Mainland and all around the world come to the beautiful island of Kauai to compete in this fun open water event. Hanalei Bay in the summer – with its warm, clear, gentle waters and sandy bottom – provides the perfect venue for races for different ages and abilities. With safety the first priority, the race course is closely watched by safety monitors on paddle boards, with jet skis and along the shore. In addition, general ocean safety information is distributed to all swimmers and spectators.[/vc_column_text]
