Penobscot Bay, Maine


A 5K open water swim across West Penobscot Bay from Point Lookout Resort in Northport to the island community of Islesboro.

Epic Scenery

The cool, clean waters of Penobscot Bay. Midcoast Maine’s rugged coastline. The charm and welcome of an island community that knows from experience what it means to depend on LifeFlight.

We take care of you

A delicious dinner the night before, treats in the morning, and a hero’s welcome at the finish. Top-notch organization, world-class safety measures, logistical finesse. Cool swag.

A personal experience

It's what you make it. Whether you're super speedy and swimming for time, or you're in it for the personal challenge, it is sure to be an amazing experience.

A powerful community

Join swimmers from the islands, the mainland, throughout New England, and across the nation. All ages, inspired in various ways, swimming together to help LifeFlight save lives.


Swim with LifeFlight patients and their friends and family members. Meet the LifeFlight crew. And never forget the feeling you get when the LifeFlight helicopter salutes you as you make your way across that big water.

Direct Impact

Your swim saves lives. The money you raise goes to LifeFlight of Maine, a nonprofit organization and our state’s only emergency medical helicopter service.
