Bay of Islands Classic Ocean Swim

1 December 2018

Escape to the tranquil Bay of Islands town of Russell at the Duke of Marlborough Hotel Bay of Islands Classic and get ready for an awesome day of swimming and relaxation..

Celebrating its 10th year, this event has the honour of kicking off the 2018/19 Banana Boat Ocean Swim Series - make the most of the charming surroundings and beautiful water temperatures, plan to stay the weekend with us at Russell Top 10 Holiday Park and make the most of this Northland gem.

Starting in the morning, all swims will be finished up in time for a leisurely long lunch and well-earned beverage. A street-party atmosphere with live music and chill-out zones will have you staying and enjoying all afternoon in beautiful Russell.

We look forward to welcoming you at our park for some well-earned rest and relaxation (or adventure depending on what tickles your fancy)!
