2004 Penguin Plunge

The 1st Annual Penguin Plunge occurred in 2004 when Tabbie Nance and Miriam Sutton shared an idea with some friends to plunge into the Atlantic Ocean on the first day of the year. Twenty-four Carteret County souls braved the chilly Atlantic waters in 2004 and the event has increased steadily each year.
