Don’t let the name put you off, the 7 News Shark Island Swim is a magnificent journey swim around a tiny island tucked around the headland south of Cronulla Beach.
The 7 News Shark Island Swim is a classic swim to add to your ocean swims bucket list. There are a few other swims that call themselves a ‘classic’, but only a few can really claim, like this swim.
The first Shark Island Swim was run back in 1988 and was one of the first ocean swims to offer two swim distances.
The event takes place south of Cronulla Beach, which is a 40-minute drive from Sydney’s CBD.
This event offers two different swim distances; the Pulse Cronulla 1km ocean swim option and the main event the ACE Gutters 2.3km Shark Island Swim.
