The swim sees hundreds of people take to the water each helping to raise thousands of pounds for the RNLI.
Last year nearly £30,000 was collected, with all the money going towards helping to support the RNLI lifeguard service in the Devon and Cornwall area.
The 2013 event will be on June 2 at noon, to coincide with a neap high tide (the lowest level of high tide).
Guy Botterill, RNLI community fundraising manager, said: "Thanks to all the participants over the past five years we've been able to raise a tremendous amount of money for the RNLI.
"The swim is an absolutely fantastic event largely run by volunteers, and without them it would simply not be possible.
"We're delighted to now be able to launch the 2013 swim and hope to see as many people as possible come forward to take part.
"The event promises to be great fun with a fantastic atmosphere so do come along and get involved."
Anyone interested can e-mail email@example.com to register their interest and application forms will be sent out.
The event has a maximum limit of 400 swimmers and is open to anyone over the age of 14.
Participants should also be intermediate or experienced sea swimmers.
