Touch Alcatraz 'n Go!

This round trip Alcatraz swim begins on the beach of Aquatic Park in San Francisco. Competitors will swim to Alcatraz Island, touch the turn-around point, and continue back to Aquatic Park in the best game of tag yet! There will be a boat with a race official on it that will mark the spot near the island where you tag the rock – and yes, you MUST tag it!

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.
