We’re excited to be heading back to the Northumberland Strait this year to cross the 14+kms between New Brunswick and PEI!
The BIG SWIM weekend will be July 22-23, 2023
Safety Requirements: Every swimmer must be accompanied by a Paddle Canada Level 1 Certified kayaker. It is the responsibility of the swimmer to acquire a qualified kayaker and without one, they will not be permitted to swim. Each kayaker is required to acquire the necessary safety gear, as recommended by Transport Canada. Without this safety gear, the kayaker will not be permitted to paddle leaving their swimmer without a paddler.
Swimmers and kayakers will be required to attend a mandatory safety meeting on Saturday, July 22, 2023.
Accommodations: Participants need to book and pay for their own rooms.
We are always looking for experienced kayakers to play a critical role in supporting our BIG SWIMmers. If you are interested in helping in a BIG way please email WaterOps@givetolive.ca
