Are you up to the challenge?

In Save The Bay’s largest annual fundraiser, the Swim, approximately 500 swimmers and 200 kayakers tackle a 1.7 nautical mile journey across Narragansett Bay to raise, not only funds, but also awareness to support our ongoing restoration, protection and advocacy efforts.

In it’s 43rd year, the Save The Bay Swim, once featuring swimmers tackling oil- and tar-ball-filled waters, now serves as a celebration of the recreational benefits of protecting local waters.

Not a swimmer? That's ok! There are plenty of other ways to participate in the Swim.

It takes 150+ volunteers to make this event possible. Be one of them!


Help Save The Bay meet its biggest fundraising goal of the year!


I started swimming for Save the Bay and continue to do so because of the opportunity and challenge to swim across the Bay. To be immersed in the middle of the bay is such a great feeling. I know this wonderful experience wouldn’t be so wonderful if it were not for the tremendous work Save the Bay has done over the years to make and keep it clean.
