Dive into 2023 with the Prince Rupert Rotary Club's Polar Bear Swim on New Year's Day

Rushbrook is ready if you are ... the Polar Bear Swim hosted by
Prince Rupert Rotary is set for Sunday at 1PM 

A Prince Rupert tradition returns to the chilly waters off Rushbrook Floats this Sunday, as the city's Rotarians host their annual Polar Bear Swim.

This year marking a return to the Polar Dip after a two year hiatus owing to COVID precautions of the past.

The event which encourages participants to come in costume regularly attracts a good sized contingent of those willing to brave the North Coast waters of the First Day of a New Year, with an even larger crowd of onlookers on the shore or the dock to cheer them on.

If you're looking for a few costume suggestions, Rotarians offer up some samples of what may work for you on Swim Day.

Once they've taken their dip into the water, some complimentary Hot Chocolate or Coffee and a Hot Dog awaits them. 

The event takes place at 1PM at The Rushbrook Boat Launch which is on the city's east side at the very end of George Hills Way.
