Our Welcome Function on the Thursday evening is the perfect chance to ease into ‘Fiji time’, meet all the swimmers and supporters and find out a bit more about what your Ocean Swim Fiji experience holds over the next few days. Kick back and enjoy dinner and drinks while you watch the sun set from the shoreline of Sofitel Fiji Resort. Not only will Scott and the team fill you in on the itinerary, but Olympic legend Shane Gould will be sharing some of her most inspiring experiences as both one of the most accomplished female swimmers in the world and a passionate supporter of water safety in Fiji. It’s an informal affair and we know you’ll love meeting new mates and relaxing into your swimcation.

Friday and Saturday evenings will be a great time to reflect on your swim as we gather for Sundowner Drinks to catch up, watch the video highlights from the day and prepare for the next day’s adventure!

The grand finale of Ocean Swim Fiji is undoubtedly the Awards Dinner on Sunday night. Set right on the sand at Sofitel Fiji Resort, the spectacular dinner under the stars features a sumptuous buffet, bar, live entertainment from the impressive Sofitel cultural group and prize giving. A live band then sets the scene for a night of barefoot dancing on the beach, sharing a laugh with others and the conclusion of your ultimate swimcation!
