Agua Fresca

Lake Washington is at its gorgeous best in early October. Use this Swim Excursion to extend your summer just a little bit longer. That hot chocolate will taste great afterward!

The Swim Excursion starts and ends a bit south of Seward Park, in South Seattle. Plenty of kayak support makes this a safe and enjoyable adventure, with some chop and wind.  There is a porta-potty available. Registration closes October 2nd at 11:59 pm, or when we reach our limit of 15 registered swimmers.

Date: Sunday October 5th
Cost: $45

Autumn at Alki

1897901_10203263867020571_990081114_nYou will see starfish and crabs on this refreshing, 1-mile swim along Alki Beach. There’s nothing like the buoyancy of the ocean to make you feel great.

Warm yourself by the bonfire after the swim as you enjoy your fish n’ chips from West Seattle’s famous Spud Restaurant (included in price).

Note: You will feel most comfortable in this event if you continue your open water swimming into September and October. There may be strong current and/or wind.

Date: Sunday October 12th
Cost: $55
