The Plunge

On Baltic Sea Day, we all take the plunge at 6 p.m.! You can take the plunge in many ways: join the Plunge Your Way, the Crowd Plunge, or the great Kuusijärvi Plunge in Vantaa. Publish a picture of your plunge using the hashtags #balticseaday and #theplunge – let’s make The Plunge go viral!

The Kuusijärvi Plunge

Welcome all you lunkers, big and small, to the fun family event at Kuusijärvi where you can try out and learn many useful skills for aquatic environments. In Every Lunker’s Plunge Academy, where we focus on safety, you can try out lifesaving, open-water swimming, swimming with a life jacket, how to save someone with a bucket, and swimming from buoy to buoy.

At 6 p.m. sharp, we take the plunge together, with the goal of making it the largest Crowd Plunge of the Baltic Sea Day!

Crowd Plunge

Get your crowd together and take the plunge in the waters close by! Challenge your co-workers, your sports club, or friends who share your hobby to take the Crowd Plunge, where you all jump to the water at 6 p.m. If that sounds a bit too exciting, you can just dip your toe, pinkie finger, or the tip of your pony tail. You can participate by any lake, river, pond or sea shore in Finland. Remember to share your amazing plunges in social media using the hashtags #balticseaday and #theplunge.

Be inspired by the plunges set up by others on the Activities page, or announce your own Crowd Plunge.

Plunge Your Way

Every minnow counts! You can participate in the Plunge Your Way by plunging to water, in your own fashion, at 6 p.m. and sharing your one-of-a-kind moment on social media using hashtags #balticseaday and #theplunge. Take care not to enter the water all on your own: when plunging, it is best to always have a plunging partner or a friend close by, looking after you!
