Location

Set along the shores of Traditional Coast Salish Territory the annual Coho Festival open water swim offers the opportunity to swim through the mythical waters described in Pauline Johnson’s Vancouver Legends along the coast of one of the worlds most scenic urban landscapes while at the same time contributing to the valuable salmon conservation activities the Coho Festival supports.

This open water swim forms a loop mimicking the migratory patterns Coho and other species of indigenous salmon have performed for millennia and centers on Ambleside Beach Park, part of the ecosystem that forms habitat for Coho salmon on the North Shore.

The swim will offer 1.5 and 3 kms options starting and finishing close to the iconic welcoming Totem pole that marks the entrance to the Capilano watershed.

Make sure you come to cheer on participants of the swim and stay to enjoy the Coho Festival.

All net proceeds of this event help to support salmon enhancement projects including stream stewardship.
