Join us!

Every January 1st, people from all walks of life and all ages gather at the shoreline in Santa Barbara, California to take a group dip in the beautiful Pacific Ocean, rain or shine! It's a great way to start off the New Year!

Afterwards, we hang out on the beach, congratulate ourselves and have snacks and celebratory beverages.

Make sure to arrive early and allow time to park.

Carpooling, ride share, bike, and bus are recommended. 

The group dip is at 11:30 sharp!

Creative outfits are encouraged! Follow us and tell your friends!

We award commemorative buttons and certificates (while they last!) to all who fully submerge without a wetsuit.

What to bring: towel, swimsuit, warm clothes, re-useable cup, snacks, drinks...
