A shared passion for the sea

Each year, thousands of New Zealanders take to the ocean to compete in the Banana Boat NZ Ocean Swim series. Leaving the comforts of the local swimming pool behind and taking to the steely cold and tidal waters, long-distance ocean swimming is the ultimate test of ability, determination and passion. It is a quintessential Kiwi activity, getting amongst it, going hard, achieving beyond expectation.

At Interislander, we enjoy the challenge of the ocean every day. Making the sea a fun, safe, comfortable and exciting place, is what we strive for. 

With the Interislander Swim the Lighthouse (fondly known as the Capital Classic) and Interislander Bean Rock Swim events coming to city beaches in Wellington and Auckland, we take great pleasure and pride in supporting these events and the brave and bold swimmers who take part. Not only do we help swimmers by offering healthy discounts for them and their support crew. but we'll also be there on the day with our Cheer Squad, helping make the day fun, safe, comfortable and exciting! 

So come and join us to test your mettle or simply enjoy the fun!
