San Francisco Bay. It's known for its hilly landscape, year-round fog, iconic Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars and colorful Victorian houses. The Financial District's Transamerica Pyramid is its most distinctive skyscraper. In the bay sits Alcatraz Island, site of the notorious former prison.
Jump from a perfectly good boat into a chilly bay for your badge of honor, bragging rights (or just a good adrenaline rush). Don't forget to look back at Alcatraz Island and ahead to the San Francisco Bay Bridge as you swim what many thought was not possible. Are you up for the Challenge?
Stay in the Marina District or by Pier 3 for easy access to the race.
