Samoa Swim Series

The State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series are once again excited to announce a partnership with the Samoa Swim Series. The Samoa Swim Series comprises of 3 beautiful swims in 3 days and takes place in late July/early August each year. We will be giving away, thanks to Samoa International Events, two trips for one person to Samoa for the Samoa Swim Series.  The prize package includes return flights to Samoa, accommodation, airport transfers & entry to the Samoa Swim Series 2014. This idyllic swim is a must for your bucket list & a great excuse to beat the winter blues and escape for an Island holiday (and Swim) in Samoa.

About the Samoa Swim Series

In July 2011 I brought 22 of my friends to Samoa for a swim tour. We had a great time swimming, touring and experiencing a variety of what Samoa had to offer. Our group (Mermaids) loved the experience and we wanted to do it again. We also connected with Le Amosa Swim School and we pledged an annual Swim Scholarship to NZ to a student(s) chosen by the school. That relationship resulted in more interaction with Le Amosa and Samoa. The idea of Open Water Swimming developed and a decision was made to launch a Swim Series in Samoa – the rest is history. In July 2012 the inaugural Samoa Swim Series was officially launched by the Prime Minister, Hon. Tuilaepa Lupesoliai Sailele Malielegaoi in his capacity as the Minister for Tourism and President of the Samoa Swim Federation. The first Series drew 100 swimmers from NZ and Australia (130 visitors) with 30 local swimmers also taking part. It was a major success, and like the Mermaids in 2011, many of those who came want to return and more importantly – to introduce their friends also to a unique Swimming experience in Samoa.
