Registered swimmers will receive an email 1 week prior to race day confirming conditions, temperatures, times, locations, parking options, etc. Passenger space, if available, will be made available for registration and announced in that email as well.
Most swimmers plan on making their own "escape" to the shores of San Francisco - but famed real escapees such as the Anglin brothers and Frank Morris probably headed to Angel Island instead to avoid capture, making this route the theoretically more authentic escape!
These crossings from Alcatraz are recommended for those swimmers who have either taken a Water World Swim Alcatraz clinic or who feel confident and have had prior experience swimming in cool open water.
Our crossings are limited to small number of swimmers and are accompanied by three or more of our coaches. Our crossings are supported by experienced safety kayakers. Swimmers will be divided in two or three groups of slow, medium and competitive levels in which are accompanied by our coaches. After a brief but thorough discussion of the conditions of the bay during your crossing, you will jump from our boat, and swim towards your destination across the bay.
Your registration is non-refundable. Please review our refund and rollover policies before registering.
Commemorate your swim with an Alcatraz tee!
Registration for our Annual Races includes an event-specific tee. These tees (shown above) are a great way to commemorate Monthly Alcatraz crossings, for which registration does not include a tee. Choose from three colors and wear your accomplishment! Grab your tee here. (opens in a new tab)
