Those who successfully completed the entire marathon know how enjoyable it was. Those who have at least attempted, surely did not regret it. This recreational swimming marathon is the major event of the Swimming festival at sea, held each year on the first weekend in September at the beach in Poreč. The start of the marathon is at the hotel Pical beach, and you can join the swimmers at any time between 9 am and 3 pm and choose one of the three marathon laps. There are guarded lockers at the beach, the swimming area is marked and under surveillance for the swimmers' safety, and the participants will be returned from the finish to the start position by boat. If you can't complete the entire marathon, a boat will come to pick you up, but don't give up so fast - everything is allowed: masks, fins, inflatable beach mattresses, water wings... You can set off alone, with your friends, family, swim slow or fast, use any possible known or unknown style. The marathon ends at 5pm with the presentation of awards.
Bronze dolphin - is awarded to those who complete the 1500 m lap, and anyone can do this!
Silver dolphin - is awarded to those who reach Sv. Nikola island at a distance of 3000 m. If you don't try it, you'll never know if you can do this!
Golden dolphin - is reserved for those who reach Sv. Nikola island and swim around it - altogether 5000 m, and not everyone can do this! The
Poreč dolphin is a swimming challenge for everyone, because what matters is not your final result but participation.
