Pacific Jules

Tuesday 30/11/2022 - Magical Morning


An absolute stunner of a swim this morning! Our favourite corner was flat and calm, sun was out and water temp was up to 19.5! But more than that... it was clear and we were greeted by loads of Luderick, Blackfish, Stingarees and Gropers as we swam towards the point! I was lucky enough to suddenly see a big Banded Wobbegong before me too! It's such a treat to see a shark!


The Drinks Express at Shelly at 6.45am bathed in sunshine!


Some of the 'Merpeeps' heading in at 7!


I turned around just in time to avoid being pulled under by this 'Monster of the Deep' also known as Andre the Baker :-)


Fish were everywhere you looked around the point and before. Mullet close to the surface, Yellowtail below...


Groper and Luderick over the brilliant green sea grass...

The Crimson Morwong even seemed more brightly coloured today with improved viz and claity.


Happy Wows at the Point





More happy swimmers at Shelly!




And I was even happier to see a Wobbegong and a Blind Shark swimming back in to Manly!

Have a great day folks!


As the Summer swimming season approaches, we look forward to our Summer swim challenges. By popular demand, we have decided to retain the summer challenge and super swimmer badges which were both well-received last summer. This year we will have the following badges:


  • Summer Challenge - swim 30 times over summer (1 Dec to 28 Feb), and swim in at least 7 different weeks
  • Summer Super Swimmer - swim 50 times over summer

 Three long distance swims are also on offer, all of which earn a badge:

  • A 6 km swim will be held every summer Saturday morning (depending on conditions) generally starting at 7 am. The first 6 km swim will be on Saturday 3rd December.
  • There will be a 10 km swim once a month over summer also starting with the 7 am swim. Dates for these will be announced in the blog. The first 10 km swim will be on 10th December.
  • If these swims are too long for you, you can try a Triple Manly to Shelly swim any day during Summer (distance 3.5 km) from 6.30 or 7 am.

If you are unsure of the routes and protocols for these swims, please ask at the desk before you swim. When swimming these longer distances, we request that, for safety reasons, you stay with the group. We also request that you do not swim in dangerous conditions. The quest for a little cloth badge is not worth putting your life at risk. Enjoy your swimming. In order to be eligible for any/all of these badges you must log your swims in i-Log. If you don’t have a log-in, please contact Ian ( .
