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. Also great practice for triathletes!
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.
This information is subject to change. Registered swimmers will receive an email 1 week prior to swim day confirming conditions, temperatures, times, locations, what to bring, parking options, etc. Passenger space, if available, will be made available for registration and announced in that email as well.
