The Buzzards Bay Swim is a one-of-a-kind, scenic, point-to-point open water swim across outer New Bedford Harbor benefiting the Buzzards Bay Coalition.

Assisted by a robust safety patrol, swimmers navigate 1.2 miles through the harbor and channel, passing the iconic Butler Flats Lighthouse and New Bedford Hurricane Barrier. Swimmers are welcomed to the finish in Fairhaven with a beach party featuring live music, cooked to order pancakes, hot coffee and local beer!

Your $25 registration fee and $300 fundraising minimum also includes shuttle service, swim cap, event tee, and a locally custom-made finisher’s medal. Special rates available for youth and lifeguard participants.

The Buzzards Bay Swim is a fundraiser for the Buzzards Bay Coalition, a nonprofit that works to protect clean water in our region. Reach out to with any questions.
