With hundreds of open water swims along both America’s West Coast (aka Left Coast) and its East Coast, the next great area of open water explosion is forecasted to be its Third Coast.

A growing number of formal and informal open water swims and swimmers are emerging along America’s Gulf Coast. Ranging from Texas in the west to Florida in the east with the seashore Gulf states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama in-between, the population base and thousands of miles of coastline bordering warm waters are prime for the Third Coast development of open water swimming.

With plenty of established triathlons and colorful open water swimming event names like Gator Bait Swim, Aqualung Open Water Swim and Daiquiri Deck Tropical Splash, open water swimmers and triathletes can look forwards to the establishment of even more events, races, solo swims, relays and pods in the future.
