Swim With Pedro

SWIMMERS WITHOUT WAIVERS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO SWIM! You can download and sign a waiver to the right. Please bring it with you or email it.

If you can swim a mile in the pool you are ready to transition to open water! The weekly Swim With Pedro workouts are a great way to train for upcoming events or be introduced to open water for the first time. Absolutely everyone is welcome to join!

  • We are a non-competitive non-threatening group. Most participants are preparing for upcoming competitions, but some are not. All are invited to join.
  • Bring Mack’s earplugs, a thermal swim cap, goggles, towels, a thermos of something hot to drink, and a good attitude.
  • Swims are piloted by experienced kayakers. We break into groups according to the individual’s capability and interest.
  • We warm up with stretching for swimmers for 10 minutes and then a brief run on the beach.
  • Thursday swims meet at 6:00PM (Thursday evenings, March through September). We jump in the water at 6:30PM.
  • Sunday swims meet at Aquatic Park bleachers at 10:00AM (Sunday mornings year round). We jump in the water at 10:30AM.

FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK OR CHECK OUR WEBSITE AS SOME TIMES WE MOVE THE SWIM WORKOUT TO OTHER BEACHES OR SWIM PLACES DUE TO EVENTS OR PARK RESTRICTIONS.
