State NZ Ocean Swim Series - La Grande Swim


Last season Akaroa really turned it on for swimmers and supporters of the State La Grande Swim with stunning weather, near perfect swimming conditions and a great event village atmosphere with lots of delicious local food vendors to feed hungry swimmers! This season we are back for more and, with the tides on our side, looking forward to offering a morning swim for everyone.

This season we will be kicking off with the 'I'm Going Long' 2.8km swim around the Bay, followed with the 'Step It Up' 1000m swim, 'Give It A Go' 300m swim and culminating with the 200m State OceanKids before we reward everyone's achievements at prize giving.

Due to swimmers wanting to make a weekend of their time in Akaroa, we have kept the event on a Saturday, meaning you can swim on Saturday morning and then have the rest of the weekend to soak up the idyllic surroundings of Akaroa. Check out for what's on offer.
