For some people, open water swimming is about connecting with nature and escaping the day-to-day of life. For some it is an amazing full-body workout. For others it is part of their triathlon or Alcatraz swim training. For some people it is just a really fun, exhilarating experience. For us it has been all of these things, and we love it! We want to give our fellow Northern Californians a chance to experience it in a comfortable, safe, and fun environment.
ODYSSEY Open Water Swimming offers low-key open water swims in Berkeley every week, all year round. These swims are structured to fit the needs of the participants, from beginners to seasoned Ironman athletes. Check out the Berkeley tab for more details about these swims.
ODYSSEY hosts several large events, including the world-famous Alcatraz swim, a swim race at Crown Beach in Alameda, night swims with goggle lights and lighted buoys, an epic Bridge to Bridge swim from the Golden Gate to the Bay Bridge, and a one-of-a-kind Angel Island Swim & Gala, including post-swim dinner and drinks aboard a yacht. See the Events tab to see what exciting swims are coming up!
We also offer private open water swims with one-on-one coaching. All ability levels welcome. Or do you want a great team-building experience for your company, team, and other group? Braving the open water will bring your members closer together and give them an experience they will remember forever. We will personalize a swim based on your group's goals and ability level. Check out the Private & Groups tab for more on either of these services.
