50 SWIMMERS · 1.25 MI FROM THE SOUTH TOWER TO FINGER POINT ROCK

This 1.25 mile race begins at the ocean side of the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge near Ft. Point Beach and goes under the Golden Gate Bridge past the north tower and finishes at Finger Point Rock. This is a rare opportunity to swim one of the most thrilling open water, world class competitions ever near a legendary historical landmark with unique currents from the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay, and over the bay's deepest point at over 340 feet!

NOTE ON SWIMMERS UNDER 18

Safety is our priority in challenging waters! Participants must be at least 12 years old to participate by signing up online. No children under 12 are accepted. Children under 14 must be evaluated by a Water World Swim coach in a private session for a non-refundable $125 fee and must be registered at time of evaluation. The fee also covers an accompanying coach in the water during the swim. Registration will be refunded if the minor is deemed not suitable to participate. Children ages 15 - 18 require a signed note from their parents.

If the under 14 minor is coming from out of town and is unable to be assessed by Water World Swim, we require a certified coach to evaluate the minor and contact us via email or written documentation certifying their ability and recommending their participation. Out of town minors under 14 must pay an additional $125 to have an accompanying coach in the water.
