Nothing to do every Sunday around noon? Want to meet a fun group of people? High tolerance for pain? Interested in raising funds for charity? Boy, have I got a group for you!


This used to be a small, local community event on every New Year's Day. Not so any longer! Come early for parking on New Year's Day. BTW, I test the water weekly. Don't buy the 47 degree water temp. that they mention below Think around 40! So come already!!! It's a hoot! And have some $ in your pocket if you please.

The Newport Polar Bears (a rather loose knit group) are winter (brrrr) swimmers at Easton's Beach in Newport, RI. Every Sunday, at NOON sharp, there are anywhere from 4 to 12 of us nuts that go for a dip into the Atlantic Ocean.

Come join us, because no matter what the weather, we still go for a swim. Now you may ask, is it cold, let me tell you, there have been some bad days!

But right now some of the nicest swimming water is available. So you couch potatoes, male or female, get up, grab your bathing suit and a towel; (no wet suits allowed).

Try something really different, come on down to Easton's Beach in Newport and jump in the ocean. We do have a place to change......
