       Series Overview

This will be the eighth Swim Series which really is Open Water Swimming's best kept secret in the South Pacific.  In the 2019 SSS offers a total of 34kms of Open Water Swims across three Events - Pacific Open Water Challenge 10 & 5kms + Samoa Swim Series + Savaii Excursion with a total of 10 swims at 10 different locations. You will see more of Samoa than most locals get to see in their lifetime. So quite apart from the three SSS official swims there is a lot more on offer. This gives you immense value for your swim dollar. Every swim is a feature on its own.  Away from the racing, serious or at your own pace, there are tours and sights, school visits and other great activities. 

There are various Swim Packages on Offer to cater for the various travel needs and requirements..
Come early or stay later, there is plenty of swimming to be done in 2019. You will come to understand why the Samoa Series is very special to many of our regular Swimmers. Also, check out the Big Warrior Race, complete the three big events in Seven days - Warrior Race Half Iron + Pacific Open Water Challenge (10km & 5km Swims) + SSS Long - for the Big Warrior Crown. (see Big Warrior Page for details)

Lifelong friendships are formed in Samoa amongst fellow swimmers. We look forward to hosting you in 2019.
