UpcomingAlcatraz Classic 2019
- May 11, 2019
6:30 am - 9:30 am
THIS DATE IS SUBJECT TO COAST GUARD CONFIRMATION
This means this is the date we are planning on, but the Coast Guard still needs to confirm it before it's set in stone. The Coast Guard is a busy place, and it can sometimes be months before they give us approval. So how often do they not approve it? Very rarely, but if you need to book travel or otherwise need absolute certainty, you might want to wait. Just know the the swim might fill up and we don't hold spots!

The St. Francis route, despite being 2.1mi, is faster than Aquatic Park due to sweeping currents in your favor.
