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

The Wilderness Excursion 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.

We will carpool (masked) from the Mercer Island Park and Ride. Be prepared for a luxurious, relaxing, and enjoyable day.

Talk about swimming in luxury. It was so fun!
