Start planning for the 2023 Swim Around on Saturday, June 17, 2023!
Open Water Swims
800 yard, 1 mile, 2 mile and 6.2 mile (10K)
The Key West Open Water Swims will begin after the start of The College of the Florida Keys Swim Around Key West. The race will begin at Higgs Beach (1000 Atlantic Blvd. Key West, FL 33040). The race starts and ends in the water. Swim toward the bouys of the required course and finish at the start buoy. Follow the maps posted. The water depth around the poles is 4-20 feet (depending on course). During the race, you will swim in pristine waters in the Atlantic Ocean. You can see fish, coral and even some turtles if you look close enough. Dolphins may try to join the race, however the best sight will of course be the mermaids/mermen swimming with you on your journey. (That is a separate category!)
Swim Around Key West
The College of the Florida Keys Swim Around Key West is a 12.5 mile journey around the pristine island of Key West.
Only takes a few seconds!
