You have heard the stories, you’ve seen the movies, you know the infamous inmates, but NOW it’s your turn to make history as you become one of the lucky few to swim to shore from Alcatraz! As the tourists ferry to the island, you’ll be swimming away as you make the ULTIMATE ESCAPE! The event is limited, so don’t wait to register!
Most commercial options for this memorable experience cost well upward of $200, but you can participate in this SF Tri Club-exclusive event for just $160! (Not a member of SFTC? Join now!)
