About This Activity

The Beaufort River Swim Committee is proud to present the 10th Annual Beaufort River Swim, a benefit for the Learn-to-Swim Program of the YMCA of Beaufort County! Our course is the unique estuary called the Beaufort River, with the 3-Mile Race starting at the Port Royal Landing Marina, winding around the curve, and finishing at the day dock, adjacent to the Beaufort Waterfront Park and where spectator watch the finish line. Race your way to win the coveted BRS Bobble Head!

The 3-Mile Competitive Open Water Swim begins at the Port Royal Landing Marina and returning this year is the 1-Mile 'Fun Swim'. The Fun Swim will begin after all the competitive swimmers pass the Beaufort Hospital dock. Fun Swim participants can wear a wet suit, use fins and a snorkel. Fun Swim participants are not eligble for awards and will NOT be timed, but this 1-mile swim is a great opportunity to experience what open water swimming is like.  Participants swim with the tide in both courses. 

Proceeds from the Beaufort River Swim benefit the YMCA Learn to Swim Program, which directly provides financial assistance to children, families and individuals to take swimming lessons.

EARLY BIRD PRICING THRU APRIL 15TH! Price increases to $60 per swimmer for the 3-Mile Swim and to $35 per swimmer for the 1-Mile Fun Swim after April 15th!
