If you can swim a mile in the pool, you are ready for the open water. Whether you have extensive experience, are completely new to open water swimming, or want to practice for an upcoming event, Water World Swim has regular group practice sessions that include swimmers of all abilities and ages. Despite the group scenario, each swimmer is helped according to their individual needs.

WHY DON'T WE JUMP OFF THE ACTUAL ROCK?
As Alcatraz is partly a bird sanctuary, boats, kayaks, and the people on them are prohibited from getting within 100 meters of Alcatraz, especially from February through September which is breeding season. This means our Alcatraz crossings do not start directly at Alcatraz. Water World Swim respects the environment, aiming to keep the sport of open water swimming a live collaboration between the athletes and the oceans.
ANNUAL RACES & EVENTS
If you're all practiced and ready for a big event, congratulations! We have a wide selection of fun events in the San Francisco Bay. From escapes from Alcatraz to world class bay crosses, pick your challenge and we'll see you there.
