Polar Bear Swim

Powell River's New Year's Day Polar Bear Swim is a long-standing tradition, ushering in the new year with a communal plunge into the sea at Willingdon Beach at noon.  Join other brave, chilly celebrants and see how long you can withstand the 'freezing' waters! 

Very Cold People Who Are Also In The Water


The Powell River Polar Bear Swim is hosted annually by the Pow! Town Roller Derby League.
