Around-Coronado Swim (USA) – World Open Water Swimming Association

Led by veteran kayaker Dan Simonelli, the Around~Coronado Swim offers a solo marathon swimming renaissance – a renewal of a long-lost swim – in beautiful San Diego, California.


Around-Coronado Swim is an 18.6 km beautifully scenic saltwater course around Coronado Island that first passes under the curvaceous Coronado Bridge and the downtown San Diego skyline before going out the San Diego Bay and passing the Point Loma peninsula.

Why it was nominated

For proving a truly scenic and challenging marathon swimming course that can be done throughout the year – from winter to summer – guided by local experts for both veteran and new marathon swimmers.
