Words can’t do justice to this exuberant Autumn swim in the Salish Sea. A favorite with swimmers for six years, Awesome Alki is the pinnacle of the season. Many who swim this event go on to Alcatraz and to swim other ocean challenges.

Swimmers who participate in Awesome Alki in 2018 may win a Say Yes to Life Swims swim patch for their swim parkas. You’ll potentially see crab and starfish as you swim, and warm yourself by the bonfire as you enjoy your fish n’ chips from West Seattle’s famous Spud Restaurant. The camaraderie is exuberant and invigorating as we celebrate the close of our 2018 season.

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.

Join us for the joyful and invigorating Awesome Alki Bash!
