White Whale

White Whale is one of the fun kids summer outdoor activities, water games for kids and race games.

This fun play idea will keep you on your toes as you have to be ready to get out of the whale's way should he decide to try and tag you!

Adult supervision is needed for this.

Very young kids and kids who can't swim should stay in shallow water for this.

Older kids who are stronger swimmers can go into deeper water.


4 or more players
Ages: 6 and up


One player is the whale and floats on his back in the middle of the swimming pool.

The other players swim around him about 2 - 3 feet away.

They also need to be towards the middle of the pool, at least 3 feet from either side.

At any moment the floating whale turns into a hungry one and chases the swimmers around the pool.

He shouts out "hungry whale" and swims after one or two of the players trying to tag one of them.

The swimmers swim as fast as they can, trying to get out of his way and get to one side of the pool.

Once a player gets to one side of the pool, he is safe and cannot be tagged for the rest of that round.

If a swimmer is tagged, she is the next whale.

If no players are tagged, the same whale goes back to the middle and play continues for a new round.


The whale should be a good swimmer and have loads of stamina since he may be in the pool a while trying to tag all the players.

You can also set a time limit.

Once that time limit is up, no matter how many players are tagged, a new whale is chosen.
