Creating an ocean of hope across Terrigal Beach!

In 2024, Terrigal Surf Life Saving will be once again hosting The Daffodil Dip as part of the Terrigal Ocean Swim Classic – a fun 400m ‘dip’ in the ocean for all ages and abilities!? The Daffodil is the symbol of hope, and the Daffodil Dip will see each swimmer or ‘dipper’ wear a vintage yellow daffodil swim cap to create a visual ‘ocean of hope’ across Terrigal Beach to raise funds and awareness for Coasties impacted by cancer.

Last year, we saw over 300 ‘dippers’ come out and create a beautiful spectacle across Terrigal Beach and 2024 is set to be even bigger. Participants can swim, paddle, wade or just dip into the water! This event is for everyone!

Entry is separate to the Terrigal Ocean Swim and 100% of proceeds of the Daffodil Dip will go directly to Cancer Council NSW – Central Coast.  You will also receive a fundraising page should you wish to support Cancer Council NSW.

Register here to participate in the Daffodil Dip

If you are a cancer survivor, if you have lost someone to cancer, if you know someone who has been impacted by cancer, or if you just want to make a difference, and come together with your community to create hope – then this event is for you!

If you would like to register for the Ocean Swim (1km or 2km swim) OR purchase an Ocean Swim T-shirt, simply click here

This fantastic community fundraising initiative could not happen without the support of Terrigal Life Saving Club, Crowne Plaza Terrigal, Breakers Country Club & Bendigo Bank!
