The Great Big Swim

This summer Susan, the Spirit Orcas and their good friend Jasmine Kremer  swam from Brentwood Bay to Esquimalt Lagoon to raise funds for the Greater Victoria Vital Fund supporting our community’s recovery from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each Saturday (or Sunday) between July 1 and August 31, 2020 (weather permitting) Susan Simmons, Jasmine Kremer and the Spirit Orcas entered the water of the Salish Sea and shoreline swam 10+ kilometres a day from Brentwood Bay to Esquimalt Lagoon. The swim was approximately 80 kilometres took place over 8 weeks.

Here’s a look back at their journey.
