 SWIM STARTS PENDING COAST GUARD VESSEL TRAFFIC CLEARANCE

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!

Join us for this round trip Alcatraz swim! This swim is a great challenge for fast swimmers that requires a strategic race plan to swim the 3.6 mile course with tides and fast currents around Alcatraz. This is also an excellent event to help prepare for longer open water endurance competitions. Some of the best open water swimmers at the national level compete in Swim Around The Rock.

This years swim will be using the original course that goes counter clockwise around Alcatraz. We begin and end the race from Aquatic Park. This will be a tough swim but  a challenge you won't forget for sure!

This swim is not for novices. This event is for experienced open-water swimmers only. If you need advice, support, and coaching for this swim, Water World Swim can help.
