The South Island leg of the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series has a new home - beautiful Tahunanui Beach in Nelson on Saturday, 31 March 2018.
Taking place off Nelson’s Tahunanui Beach over Easter Weekend, "The Big Tahuna" offers the perfect opportunity for an extended weekend at the tip of the beautiful South Island.
The biggest Tahuna of them all, will take swimmers on a 3km course around the iconic Fifeshire Rock. Other distances on offer include the "Step it Up" 1km, "Give it a Go" 500m and the "Banana Boat OceanKids" 200m for 7-12 year olds.
Swimmers will receive the royal treatment from Surf Life Saving New Zealand whilst underway, with guards on boards and in IRBs ensuring the confidence and safety of every swimmer for every stroke of their challenge.
