The most recent edition of this event was on 17 February 2018.
The Napier Port Ocean Swim on Saturday, 18 February 2017 coincides with Napier's Art Deco weekend and is becoming a treasured event for locals and visitors to the Hawkes Bay.
The event has a range of distances to cater to a wide range of abilities. From a 200m Kid's Race, 300m, 1 km and 2.5 kms. Enter as an individual or as a team. All swims are no more than 200m offshore from the sheltered Ahuriri Beach.
The swim is held in the relatively sheltered waters along Napier's Hardinge Road. This allows a grand spectacle for supporters along the domain and walkways next to the course. A carnival atmosphere will be created with support from the wider Ahuriri district with its many cafés and bars.
