The Jong Bonaire Swim to Klein Bonaire
October 6 @ 7:00 am - 11:30 am AST
2019 marks the 19th consecutive year of the Swim to Klein Bonaire!
This is Jong Bonaire’s major fundraising event, all proceeds go to the youth of Bonaire. In 2019, over 500 people did the swim! It’s not just a community service event, it’s a social event! This is not a race! It is a fun event for all ages, young and old. The swim can be done without swim aids, or feel free to use your mask, snorkel, and fins, or any other swim-aid, such as a floatation device. Many make the roundtrip, but for those who do not wish to swim back, there are plenty of boats available to return you to the shore.
Tickets are available at Jong Bonaire (October 5th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM) or at Eden Beach Resort (October 6th from 7:00 to 8:30 AM). Adults $15.00, Children $10.00. Tickets include an event t-shirt, lunch, and a drink.
The swim will begin promptly at 9:00 AM.
You can buy your ticket in advance, but t-shirts will not be available until October 5th. Also, on Sunday morning, October 6th, participants will need to fill in the registration form and liability form.
