These crossings from Alcatraz during the months of winter are recommended for those swimmers who have either taken the Water World Swim Alcatraz Swim Clinic or who feel confident and have had prior experience swimming in cool open water or have built endurance by long distance swimming in the pool .
Our crossings are NOT TIMED OR COMPETITIVE and usually limited to a small group of swimmers and are accompanied by three or more of our coaches. Our crossings are supported by the best Water World Swim pilots. After a brief, but thorough discussion of the conditions of the bay during your crossing, we will jump from our boat, and swim toward our destination across the bay.
Swimmers will be divided in two or three groups of slow, medium and competitive levels in which are accompanied by our coaches. This is surely an exciting and thrilling swim.
Be sure to meet 45 minutes before jump time. Bring 2 towels, warm clothes for on the boat and afterwards, have your wetsuit on in boat and be ready to jump. Bring your swim gear (cap, earplugs, goggles, etc.) and warm tea or drink in thermos for after.
