Accommodation is with the organizers at Daku Resort.

Fiji’s clear warm waters offer a beautiful environment in which to swim. We are offering two long-distance swims with an easy short swim on the day between. We hope you’ll participate in all three, but you are free to choose just one if you prefer.

 CONTACT US AT DAKU RESORT FOR BOOKING ENQUIRIES

The swim between Daku Resort and Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort runs in a straight line along the coast. It follows the last sweep of Savusavu Bay which is protected from the south easterly trade winds that can sometimes make the sea choppy on the other side of the peninsula. The water is warm and clear. There are coral heads from time to time although they are closer in to the shore line than the swim route. We pass two groups of oyster pearl lines belonging to the J Hunter Pearl farm on the way.

The 5k swim will run from the beach at Daku Resort to the jetty at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort. The 10k swim runs the same course, and then turns back to return to Daku Resort.

The 2k swim on the day between  will start at the Fiji Pearls farming platform which is anchored between the two resorts, and once again runs back up along the coastline to Daku Resort.

We are also offering  a two day swim safari on the weekend after the swims.
