Tofino Winter Events-Polar Bear Swim

Want to celebrate the arrival of 2018 in Tofino? The community and Surfrider Pacific Rim invite you to join in their annual New Year’s Day Polar Bear Swim!

At 10am, a New Year’s Day Yoga Class will be held at Coastal Bliss Yoga. Stretch your limbs and achieve that inner warmth before dipping into freezing water!

At 11:30 North Chesterman Beach will be cleaned up and made ready for the main event.

1pm is the main swim! Do you dare dip your toes into Tofino’s wintery ocean waters?

A fire will be burning to help keep you warm. There will also be hot chocolate and treats! Remember to BYOM (Bring Your Own Mug)!
