Welcome to the 2019-2020 Port Nelson Summer Sea Swim Series

The 2019-2020 season starts November 7, 2019. Our sea swims have been held in Nelson, New Zealand over the summer on Thursday nights for the last 32 years.




Sea swims have been held in Nelson over the summer on Thursday nights for 32 years. For the first 20 years, the swims were organised by Peter Owen of the Nelson company Eyebright, and were known as the Eyebright swims. That historical link remains, with the annual Eyebright Mile, actually a swim of 2km.
