Welcome to the home of the Nevis to St Kitts Cross Channel Swim. Each year this event attracts hundreds of open water swimmers from all over the world to one of the most unspoilt and relaxing islands in the Caribbean. Vividly green with blue skies, clean air and long empty beaches, Nevis has a gentle pace of life that encourages you to stop and appreciate the natural beauty around you. A perfect setting, then, for a challenge to swim from one island to another!

The swim itself crosses the “Narrows,” a strait that separates not only St Kitts from Nevis, but also the Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean, making this a unique ocean swim. 

2025 marks the 24th anniversary of the event and we look forward to welcoming you all to our Caribbean shores and to the two beautiful islands, that are St Kitts & Nevis.
