REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN for Save The Bay’s 46th annual Swim!
Will we see you in the water? Sign up now: www.savebay.org/swim
During this one-of-a-kind two-mile, cross-Bay swim, skilled swimmers journey from Newport to Jamestown to celebrate the recreational benefits of a healthy Narragansett Bay, while raising funds to support Save The Bay’s nonprofit mission to protect and improve it. Registration closes on July 5.

There are other opportunities to exercise your right to a clean and healthy Bay! Don’t miss your chance to swim, run, walk, paddle, kayak or bike for Save The Bay in the 2022 Open! Learn more at www.savebay.org/swim.

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building. Enter the building through the main entrance.
