Polar Bear Plunge

The Coolest Event of the Year!

Kick off the New Year with a new tradition—a refreshing plunge into invigorating Puget Sound!

The New Year offers opportunities to set new goals and try new things, so get your bucket list out and come take the Plunge with other jubilant merrymakers on January 1 at the Point Defiance Marina.

The fun begins with a Cub Plunge, for youth under 10 years of age, at 11:30 am, followed by an Adult/Family Plunge at noon. The event is free of charge. Costumes are welcome but not required.

Spectators are welcome to be a part of the fun by cheering and encouraging those who brave the water.

The event takes place rain or shine at the Point Defiance boat launch, located at 5912 N. Waterfront Drive in Point Defiance Park. Hot drinks, tents and heaters will be provided.
