Interislander The Big Tahuna – 7 March 2020

We’re back in the top of the South Island for our third Interislander Big Tahuna and ready for another super sunny day at beautiful Tahunanui Beach.

Events on offer at Interislander The Big Tahuna:

  • Banana Boat OceanKids 100m (7&8yrs), 200m (9&10yrs) & 400m (11&12yrs)
  • 500m swim at Tahunanui Beach (8yrs +)
  • 1km swim at Tahunanui Beach (10yrs +)
  • 3km swim at Tahunanui Beach (12yrs +)

Whether you’re trying out an ocean swim for the first time or looking for a new challenge, we’ve got a terrific range of swim experiences for swimmers of all ages and abilities. The Banana Boat OceanKids can take on their first ocean swim with a 100m, 200m or 400m swim close to the shore. Then there’s three swim distances on offer for swimmers depending on ability, 3km, 1km or 500m.

Back by popular demand is an inflatable feature, courtesy of Nelson inflatables experts, Aflex Inflatables! This was a huge hit last season and we’re excited to see what Aflex Inflatables are blowing up for us this season.

Dash for Cash in our brand new event – The $print! Up your game at the beach this summer with our all new event – ‘The $print’ – a 200m out and back ‘splash for cash’ event!
That’s right…we have cold, hard cash up for grabs at The Interislander Big Tahuna. Click here for The $print event and cash prize info – under Swim Distance Options.
