Tahiti Swimming Experience is a concept which was created, from the idea of Stéphane DEBAERE, which consisted in invite international olympics swimmer, pool specialists, to come discover swimming in Polynesian waters. He wanted to share with them, the sensation of open water in an exceptional environment, in the sun colors and thus, discover his beautiful country.
Its first edition, elected « Best sports event 2017», at the ATN challenge Tahiti Info, has won a media and popular success, for its sports-tourism concept, based on the theme of “A place, an encounter …”.
If sport is above all a question of performance and emotions, we have chosen to maintain this concept, proposing to extend their experience, through a program rich in cultural, tourist, landscape and the meeting with the local population, known for its simplicity, authenticity and generosity.
Enlisted in the calendar of major events of the Country, the Tahiti Swimming Experience has become a major event, supported by the Institutions of the Country, all professionals of sport, culture, tourism and communities.
The TSE is promised a bright future. Indeed, the Tahitian Swimming Federation has officially launched, open water in Polynesia with the support of the French Swimming Federation which inscribed this event in the EDF Tour AQUA CHALLENGE – TAHITI in order to support the development of Open water in French Polynesia.
Finally, Tahiti Swimming Experience becomes a true international showcase of the destination and promotion of the discipline of Open Water, offering exceptional conditions and full colors.
