Join a small group for an unforgettable swim adventure. This small, sublime lake, whose name and location is known only to registered swimmers, is closed to motorized boats.

Limited to twenty participants, The Jewel of the Northwest includes a picnic lunch, snacks, paddle support, changing cabana, Wilderness Pass (if driving), and additional treats. Once you arrive, you can choose from a one-mile or 1.5-mile route. A licensed, on-site massage therapist will treat several lucky participants to a free massage. You may even win a voucher for FREE entry to the 7th Annual Awesome Alki Bash, including fish and chips and a bonfire, in October.

We will carpool from the Mercer Island Park and Ride. Be prepared for a luxurious, relaxing, and fun day. Then return in time to enjoy the rest of your Saturday (or do laundry).

I can’t believe the care and attention to detail that goes into these Adventures. I had a great time.
