It is the achievement of a lifetime to successfully cross the Strait of Magellan or the Beagle Channel at the southern tip of Chile – join the elite few who have swum these cold stretches of water riddled with massive currents by letting Water World Swim take you there. Coach Pedro Ordenes, WWS Founder and Coach, has done both and will guide you success as he has done for others. Our most recent success was Hunter Wright, who at the age of 17 crossed the Strait of Magellan in January 2014. Before Wright, Randy Perkins crossed in January 2013, and Rafal Ziobro in 2011.
During your trip to swim either challenge, you will be in the famed Patagonia wilderness as well as one of its largest cities, Punta Arenas. This is some of the most beautiful expanse in the world, including the beautiful Torres del Paine and Tierra del Fuego. The dramatic landscape sets the scene for your incredible swim journey.
