SWIM "THE RIP"
POINT NEPEAN TO POINT LONSDALE
"The Rip" is a bold, iconic 3.2km bucket-list swim across the entrance to Port Phillip Bay, the gateway to Melbourne, Australia. Steeped in history, It is one of the most magnificent, exciting and unpredictable waterways in the world. You can swim it safely with us.
We are excited to announce the launch of our new Rip Swim Club. If you are passionate about your open water swimming and looking for more adventures this is the place for you. Read more here
Each “Rip Swim” crossing is done in a group of 6 swimmers. You will have a dedicated kayaker supplied by us. You will need to swim together. Water temperatures range from 14 - 17 Celsius and you can wear a wetsuit if you need to.
You have a better chance of crossing “The Rip” with some speed. Improve your swimming with our new small group clinic. More here…
