Introduction to Bay Swimming @ Aquatic Park

  • Aquatic Park Pier SF, CA, 94109 United States (map)

A welcoming and informative 2 hour session at Aquatic Park.

We'll cover hypothermia, tides, currents and basic sighting and safety skills.

It's 30-45 min Q/A lecture session followed by  35-45 min of swimming, drills and practice in Aquatic Park. We swim as a group with no more than 5 swimmers per coach so you get personal attention. You do need to be able to swim at least 200 yards unassisted. You do not need a wetsuit but of course are welcome to wear one. Cost is $55 payable in advance if at all possible. 

You'll need a suit, cap goggles and a couple of towels are a good idea. Parking is challenging so please allow a little extra time. 

We meet at the foot of Van Ness by the NPS sign.

Please contact me if you have any other questions.
