The Gem! Our Omaha beach plays host to this new event.
‘The Gem’ has a range of swim options for all ages, abilities, and ambitions … from a 3.3km long swim (from the estuary to the ocean); to 1km and 500m distances, and three OceanKids swims – all off the main beach.

The Omaha Beach Community Inc. has been active in contacting the organisers, and alerted them to our concerns about the possible impact of running such an event in Omaha. Our wish is to see it a success, without undue impact on and disruption to the residents of Omaha (and that includes the Shorebirds!). The organisers have been very cooperative, and taken steps to address our concerns.
