Alcatraz – Black Friday Special!
November 29 @ 5:45 AM - 8:30 AM PST$95.00
$95.00 WHAT?!? Heck yes. Roll out of bed from your turkey hangover and forget the crowds at the stores. It’s what every open water swimmer wants – another swim!
Join us for a memorable Alcatraz swim. Whether this is a swim to cross off your bucket list, or you’re returning for your 100th Alcatraz, you will be delighted with this crossing.
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.
Expect water temperatures to be in the mid-50’s. 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 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.
