The State Harbour Crossing is the first of six events in the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series - a 2.9km ‘I’m Going Long’ swim split into 6 waves, putting swimmers with similar abilities together in waves, seeded by their anticipated times. It is for individuals with swimming experience who have trained to complete this event.

This year sees us celebrating the 10th anniversary of the popular State Harbour Crossing, giving swimmers their annual fix of stopping marine traffic and being able to say, ‘I’ve swum across Auckland Harbour’!

From its inauguration in 2004 where the swim kicked off from Stanley Bay to the Viaduct’s Market Square, to the now improved course from Bayswater’s Quinton Park to Karanga Plaza in the Viaduct Harbour, this has become one of the largest and most iconic ocean swims in New Zealand.

Catch one of the optional competitor transfer ferries from the Viaduct to the start line in Bayswater for the 7am swim start and have your friends and family make the most of the spectator vantage points around Viaduct Harbour to watch you enter the Harbour and cross the finish line. They then can then join you afterwards for the 9am prize giving and a well deserved drink and bite to eat at the Auckland Fish Markets.
