“This swim is a great way to train for any of the Alcatraz triathlons. You will finish at the beach at St.Francis Yacht Club. This is the same end point for the swim leg of many big triathlons. Before you start, a Water World Swim coach will brief you on the currents and the technicalities involved with finishing your swim leg. Whether you are training for an upcoming event or just want to practice a mile of open water swimming in our beautiful bay, we are sure you will enjoy this unique opportunity”.

When & Where
Water World Swim
Water World Swim has been offering open water swimming events and training programs for over 16 years. Some of our programs include the “Swim with Pedro”
Weekly workouts and training sessions, regular Alcatraz crossings and instructional clinics, the New Waves program for young swimmers with an interest in open water swimming, and our numerous open water races and events.
Our swims have been chosen for their beauty, safety , and general “coolness” factor. Each swim is prepared, organized, and guided by a team of local coaches and swimmers with vast experience and in-depth knowledge of the local waters. All our swims are fully certified, permitted and supported by the U.S. Coast Guard.
We welcome swimmers from all over the world with all levels of ability. If you are training for an upcoming competition, want to accomplish a swim from Alcatraz, or just want to experience swimming in the beautiful waters of the San Francisco Bay, then we encourage you to join us. We offer something for everyone.
Invite you to check our 2013 swim program listing full of swimming events for everyone interested in taking the challenge and register in the swim of your choice.
