We are very sorry to announce that we will not be holding the 2021 Hanalei Bay Swim Challenge due to the COVID-19 restrictions and the road work on Kuhio Highway at Hanalei Hill. We plan to be back in 2022 and hope to see you all then.

As always, thank you for your support!

Great article in the Garden Island News on the 2019 swim. https://www.thegardenisland.com/2019/07/28/sports/hanalei-bay-swim-challenge-brings-out-168-swimmers/

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]
