Shark Bait Swim

Each year, local swimming clubs, Jumby Bay homeowners and guests and staff of the resort take part in a challenging 3-kilometer swim from Jumby Bay Island to mainland Antigua. Proceeds from the event are allocated across various philanthropic organizations and community projects in Antigua.
