This Alcatraz test swim is specially created for triathletes wanting to practice the swim portion of the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. Unlike the clinic, at the test swim you will have the option to swim the whole course, or just parts of it.
These crossings from Alcatraz are recommended for those swimmers who have either taken the Water World Swim Alcatraz Swim Clinic or who feel confident and have had prior experience swimming in cool open water. Our crossings are supported by the best Water World Swim pilots. After a brief, but thorough discussion of the conditions of the bay during your crossing, we will jump from our boat, and swim toward our destination across the bay.
Be on time! Bring 2 towels, warm clothes for on the boat and afterwards, have your wetsuit on in boat and be ready to jump. Bring your swim gear (cap, earplugs, goggles, etc.) and warm tea or drink in thermos for after.
Your registration is non-refundable. Please review our refund and rollover policies before registering.
