Photos of today’s Vancouver Polar Bear Swim at English Bay

Vancouver, B.C.

We did not take a dip but enjoyed watching! Here are some photos we took. The weather was cooperating and was sunny.

The English Bay Polar Bear Swim is one of the longest-running events of its kind in the world. In 1920 it started with less than a dozen swimmers. In recent years it has had over 2500. In 2020, in fact, they set a new Vancouver record with an estimated 45,000 people attending and over 7,000 registered swimmers.

Unfortunately, the in-person event was cancelled in 2021 due to COVID-19. That year a virtual event took place instead. 2022 was the same.
