Swim Around The Rock

Join us for this round trip Alcatraz swim at Aquatic Park! This swim is a great challenge for fast swimmers that requires a strategic race plan to swim the 3.25 mile course with tides and fast currents around Alcatraz. This is also an excellent event to help prepare for open water endurance competitions. Some of the best open water swimmers at the national level compete in Swim Around The Rock.

This event is for experienced open water swimmers only. This swim will not only require swimming strength and open water experience, but expert ability in navigating a winning course with complex currents.

You should be able to swim one mile comfortably in a pool in under 40 minutes. If you need advice, support, and coaching for this swim, Water World Swim can help.
