Home to 17 pristine beaches, coral reefs, and an abundance of island and marine life, Great Keppel Island is truly a place like no other. SwimAroundKeppel (SAK) features a circumnavigation island swim in tropical waters and covers a total distance of 20 kilometres – one of Australia’s longest swimming marathons. SAK 2022 will be a two-day event including the signature 20-kilometre circumnavigation marathon swim on day 2. Leading into the signature swim, day 1 festivities will include waterpolo competition, guided bush walks, family scavenger hunt, kayaking, snorkelling and an afternoon concert by local performers. Day 1 festivities will also include shorter novice swims (100 metres, 500 metres and 1 kilometre) plus a 5-kilometre swim around Middle Island. Day 2 will see our signature swim start by 10:30 am. Spectators will be able to hop off a cruise and watch the swimmers, participate in snorkelling, finish up the family scavenger hunt or participate in a walk to the lighthouse to watch the swimmers (18 kilometre round trip). The Presentation and After Party will be held at the GKI Hideaway Island Bar and Bistro the evening of the 20 kilometre swim. Late boat departure on the day is available, but…why would you want to leave..?
