Nevis to St. Kitts Swim

The annual Nevis to St Kitts Cross Channel Swim is the perfect challenge for swimmers of all abilities. Swim across the 4km (2.5 miles) 'Narrows' between the two sister islands, in a truly unique experience! 

Starting at Oualie Beach on Nevis and finishing at the Reggae Beach Bar, Cockelshell Bay, St Kitts. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom! This challenge hosts the best open water swimmers in the world, but is also open to those who don't want to swim competitively, allowing them to use fins and snorkels to assist their swim.

With the warm crystal clear water and local sea life accompany you on your journey, this event really is an open water swimmer's dream!
