Join a small group for an unforgettable swim adventure. This approximately 1.5-mile Wilderness Adventure Swim takes place in a picturesque lake outside Seattle. This sublime lake is known to just a few, and is closed to motorized boats.

Limited to twenty swimmers, The Jewel of the Northwest includes a picnic lunch, snacks, paddle support, changing cabana, Wilderness Pass (if driving), and additional treats. 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 a specific Park and Ride (to be determined).

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