The Pelican Plunge
Time & Location
About the event
Join friends and neighbors as we plunge into the refreshing waters of the Atlantic on New Year’s Day. Plungers can warm up by a fire on the beach and everyone can enjoy hot beverages, snacks, and our fun costume parade—more outrageous every year.
The Pelican Plunge is one of our favorite annual events. Proceeds benefit Hunting Island State Park’s Discover Carolina program, a hands-on, curriculum-based instruction program for 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade students in Beaufort County schools. Participating students visit Hunting Island to learn about the ecology of a semi-tropical barrier island. More than 3,000 3rd, 5th, and 7th graders have participated in this unique educational program.
