Big Blue Conservation - What is the Swim For Sharks?


A fundraising event that helps raise money to Shark conservation projects worldwide. 

Supporting charity organisations such as:

  • Shark Guardians
  • Sea Shepherd 
  • Save Koh Tao 

The main event of our Swim For Sharks fundraiser is a 3.4km swim around the neighboring island Koh Nang Yuan. Everyone can join in, whether you are a competitive swimmer or enjoy snorkeling! There are several different races to compete in:


Also anyone that wishes to do any of the other events and get sponsored will also recieve a free events T-shirt if they collect more that 2,000 Baht in sponsors.

In the evening we celebrate the winners of the events as well as congratulate everyone that took part.

The evening starts with food, drinks specials, a big raffle with many prizes to give away, and then our last event the Shave-4-Sharks – volunteers raise money to have their hair shaved into a fin-like Mohawk!
