The ‘Polar Bear Swim’ started in Boston in 1904. Vancouver’s Polar Bear Swim has been going on since 1920 with annual participants in the thousands.

Lake Wylie is a strong community of active and fun residents! We NEED an Annual Polar Bear Swim Club (Click here to join the new Facebook Plunge Group)!.

This year there happens to be one! Lucky us.

Check out Charlotte Ski Boat’s Polar Bear Plunge at Papa Doc’s this year from 1:30pm-4pm. Here is the Facebook event for more information:

You can always check out the LIVE Lake Wylie Cams to see the lake any time of the day.
