Alcatraz Annual Winter Swim - Swimming in San Francisco.

On a Saturday in January, swimmers from around the Bay Area brave frigid winter waters for the the Alcatraz Annual Winter Swim. Restricted to just fifty qualified swimmers, the Alcatraz Annual Winter Swim invites athletes to race through 1.25 miles of shark-infested waters from Alcatraz to Aquatic Park in the Bay of San Francisco.

Expert swimmers display dazzling feats of athleticism in making it through the freezing Bay. Registration for swimmers costs about $250 per person, but watching the swim is free.

After swimming in or watching the Alcatraz Annual Winter Swim, warm up with a drink at the cafés and bars by Fisherman’s Wharf.
