Polar Bear Swim

The annual Goose Spit Polar Bear Swim is happening in one week! Come out on December 26th to brave the chilly waves. Last year we had around 130 people attend with visitors from Germany, Australia, and California. Participants ranged in age from four-year-old Elise Robertson, who was part of a family team, to 92-year-old James Rubletz, a Courtenay resident who has been taking part in the event for 30 years. 

Registration is at 11:30 and the swim is at noon. Bring your whole family for a fun event!
