New Year’s Day Alcatraz Swim
**SWIM BOTH ALCATRAZ AND THE GOLDEN DATE ON NEW YEAR’S DAY AND TAKE $25 OFF EACH SWIM**
Welcome 2020 with an Alcatraz swim! Not everyone belongs to the infamous clubs that swim from Alcatraz each year so for non-club members, we offer an Alcatraz swim option.
Join us for our small group Alcatraz swim and be treated to the spectacular! It’s the classic Alcatraz to San Francisco open water swim and can be completed by most moderately experienced open water swimmers. Please note, this is not a swim for breaststroke-only swimmers.
December water temperatures are expected to be 55F/12.7C or below. While we swim year-round in only a swimsuit, cap, and goggles – we’re acclimated. Swim in a swimsuit, wetsuit, or your birthday suit! Just swim and enjoy yourself.
How we’re different:
We swim Alcatraz all the time… and we mean hundreds of times during the year. Unlike the mass-market ‘Escape’ swims which charge hundreds of dollars to be one of 25, 50, 300, 400, or even 700+ person herd of swimmers jumping off a ferry, we limit our swim to small groups to give you the personalized attention to this delightful experience you truly deserve!
If this date doesn’t work for you, get in touch. We can schedule a custom swim to accomplish any of your San Francisco Bay swim goals and can even include the opportunity to have a guest(s) on the boat to watch your swim…
This swim is typically about 1.9 miles (3 km) and we swim with the ebb tide.
TIME IN THE WATER:
The time to complete this distance is usually about an hour unless the group is particularly fast.
