Beginning at 9:30 am and continuing until 10:45 am, boats will ferry swimmers for free to Atsena Otie. The swim will begin promptly at 11:00 am. Participants will swim the roughly 0.42-miles to the main island (about a third of the distance can be waded) where they will be greeted with cheers and accolades from an assembled block party of hundreds of supporters! Clam boats will line the course to offer rest stops for those who need breaks along the way.
The U.S. Coast Guard and FWC will provide additional safety resources.
Floaties, rafts, whacky inflatables, and any other non-powered accessories are encouraged.
Live music, food trucks, educational booths, and vendors will make this year's event a community-wide party!
