Come join us for the ultimate Bay Area open water swim! This event is not a race, just a friendly swim in an exciting, safe, and comfortable environement. It is a great opportunity for those training for similar events or people who just want an unforgettable swim! We are happy to offer three Alcatraz swims in 2017: May 28, June 25, and October 22, and we're always available to schedule private solo or group swims, as well.
• Approximately 1.5 mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. This swim is for relatively strong swimmers. You should be able to do this distance in a pool (105 lengths of a 25 yard pool) or during our regular group open water swims in Berkeley without stopping. Feel free to contact us if you're not sure if you are up for it.
• Only $125! There is a $50 late registration fee within one month of the event.
• In addition to the swim itself, registration includes an event t-shirt and a yellow silicone Odyssey swim cap.
• All Alcatraz swims will take place in the morning, usually meeting in SF between 6 and 8am. The registration page shows an approximate check-in time, but swimmers will receive an email prior to the event with finalized details.
