New Year’s Day ‘Pelican Plunge’ at The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island

Say bye-bye to the past year (or two) and plunge into 2022 for the 6th Annual Pelican Plunge on Saturday, January 1st at The Boardwalk.

Whether you dip, dive, flop, or leap into the Gulf of Mexico, you’ll be freezin’ for a reason as 100% of the proceeds directly support children’s charities of The Emerald Coast Foundation

The Pelican Plunge begins at 10:30am with hundreds of participants dashing into the water at 11:30am. Secure your ticket to partake in the New Year’s Day Post-Plunge Party at The Crab Trap restaurant on Okaloosa Island.

  • Tickets are $22 in advance, $30 day of.
  • All tickets include free cocoa & coffee, hot gumbo, costume contest, huge raffle, live music, and food & drink specials.
  • Weather is looking to be a balmy 74° on Saturday.

The Pelican Plunge directly benefits local children in need through The Emerald Coast Foundation. Last year, the event raised a total of $5,247.
