Abu Dhabi’s family-friendly Swim For Clean Seas event is coming back

If there’s one thing we’re always up for, it’s having fun whilst simultaneously saving the planet.

Luckily, Abu Dhabi’s Swim for Clean Seas is back to help the entire city do the same.

Returning for its third year next month, the annual event will be held at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, where keen swimmers are encouraged to participate in an ocean swim to raise awareness of the world’s multiple marine issues.

Taking place on Friday April 3, the family-friendly event will offer four different swim distances to suit all ages - 200m, 400m, 800m, 1600m. And in the spirit of light-hearted competition, a winner will be crowed for each swim and rewarded with prizes.

Participants will also be treated to exciting activities like beach-clean up nurdle hunts for kids as well as thought-provoking talks on sustainability by guest speakers and marine biologists.

Felicia Agmyren, co-founder of Swim for Clean Seas and managing partner of Rex Real Estate, one of the event’s sponsors, said: "The inspiration for bringing the event to the UAE capital was firstly to raise awareness of the decreasing health of the oceans, but also to raise awareness for the importance of keeping our seas clean.

“Swim for Clean Seas is a way to engage people from all across the community, while having a healthy swim and learning about small changes we can all easily make in our daily lives to help our oceans thrive.”

Last year, the event saw 150 attendees and this year is set to be another success so make sure you register for your spot while you can.
