About the Event

The 37th Provincetown Swim for Life & Paddler Flotilla takes place in Provincetown Harbor and Wellfleet Great Pond. The 1.2 mile Provincetown route follows the East End shoreline from the beach across from the Harbor and Breakwater Hotels to Johnson Street Beach. The Wellfleet swim circumvents Great Pond starting at the public landing on Cahoon Hollow Road.

Look for the big white tent at Johnson Street Beach for the famous Mermaid Brunch.

We are committed to raising funds to support services for the Cape community. We invite swimmers, kayakers, boaters, walkers and volunteers to join us in this quintessential Provincetown experience. Swim with us in person or virtually, wherever you are. Let’s come together once again in a joyous celebration in the town that we all love.
