Celebrate the dawn of the new year with a chilly dip in Semiahmoo Bay on January 1 as part of White Rock’s Polar Bear Plunge. Join other plungers and 1,000+ enthusiastic onlookers for this New Year’s Day tradition. Costumes are “mandatory” and prizes will be awarded!

Registration begins at 10:30 am and the official plunge takes place at noon!  Meet at the White Rock (P’Quals) just east of the historic White Rock Pier.  Take the plunge and then warm up at the new heated igloo tent provided by sponsor BC UA Local 170. Hot chocolate and coffee will also be available post-plunge!
