Join us on the unique swimming holiday in Haiti as we take part in the annual 10km ‘Swim for Haiti', a special event to raise funds for teaching local children the fundamentals of swimming. Staying on the palm-fringed Côte des Arcadins, overlooking the island of Isle de la Gonave, we stay at the locally-owned Wahoo Bay Resort which is nestled between the majestic Matheux Mountains and the Caribbean Sea.
While the nation of Haiti is filled with palm-fringed beaches and stunning coastal waters that rival anywhere in the Caribbean, the true beauty of the country lies in its history, culture and people. With a mix of African, French, Spanish and native Taino culture, this trip will give you the opportunity to experience the wonderful hospitality that this small Caribbean nation is famous for.
During the course of your trip, you will also have the opportunity to take part on additional excursions or activities which can be arranged through our partners in Haiti. Please enquire with the SwimTrek office about any additional activities or extra nights’ accommodation that you may be interested in.
Who is this trip for?
This event is suitable for both competitive and non-competitive swimmers. The 10 km (6-mile) crossing from the idyllic islands of Iles des Arcadins to the La Côte des Arcadins region on the Haitian mainland is stunning, with dazzling blue water surrounding you. Each swimmer is accompanied by a local fisherman who paddles alongside them in a traditional dugout canoe. This truly is an adventure like no other.

We have done 2 SwimTrek trips and enjoy the swimming, the organization and the camaraderie. We are limited to warm water swimming so Haiti was a good fit for us.Cathy M and Steve V. 2016 - USA
I had a lot of fun to swim, visit and work with people from around the world during my trip to Haiti with SwimTrek. The race was quite a challenge and Haitians are welcoming. They gave me great advice to improve my swimming. In short we ate very well and had a great experience.Stephane F. 2016 - France
