Interislander The Big Tahuna

Saturday 2nd March 2019

Back for its second year, the Interislander ‘The Big Tahuna’ can only be described as the best ocean swim event in the South Island and is the only swim in the South Island in the Banana Boat New Zealand Ocean Swim Series.

Staying true to the much-loved 500m, 1km and 3km swims, you’ll be able to really make a splash thanks to an epic inflatable slide close to the finish line!

Three distances in the Banana Boat OceanKids Series are on offer for our younger swimmers.The 100m swim is perfect for those starting out or finding their flippers in the ocean aged 7 and 8 years old, and the 200m distance is ideal for 9 and 10 year olds. If your 11 and 12 year old tadpole is looking for a bit more of a challenge have a go at the 300m distance.

All swimmer will receive a finishers medal, photo and video!
