Matiu/Somes Island is the jewel in Wellington's harbour and a national treasure; the circumnavigation of the island on Saturday, 24 February 2018 will be a first for Wellington swimmers and a swim feat to be proud of whenever you look over the harbour.
The waters are crystal clear with an abundance of marine and bird life. It will be a swim to remember!
The 3.0km course is around Matiu/Somes Island; the 3.7km includes Mokupuna Island; and you will swim both islands and then back to Petone for the 6.7km course.
Swim Entry includes - return ferry transport & personal gear storage; DOC donation; extensive on-water swim support for your personal safety.
