Sunday Swim Around the Pier
The Sunday swim is open to swimmers of all abilities, and if you are new to open-water swimming it is encouraged that you start here. Why? All of the Carlsbad Ocean Swimming swims are no-drop swims, but the Sunday swim is mentored, meaning at least one person will be on hand to show you the ropes. When: Sunday Morning. Meet at 7:45, toes in the water at 8AM. Where: Oceanside Municipal Pier. Meet at the picnic tables to the south of the bandshell. Parking: Along Pacific Street above the pier. Bring quarters to feed the meters. What to bring: Cap and Goggles. If it's colder bring your trusty Xterra wetsuit and neoprene swim cap. Disclaimer: Swimmers swim at your own risk.

What we're about

We swim in the ocean.

We prefer waves to lane lines.

We don't mind if the water is cold.

We can make it out through the break.

We body surf.

We see dolphins.

We like it when water drips out of our nose three hours after a workout.

We can tell the water temperature to within a degree.

We lose goggles when the ocean decides to take them from us.

We measure our swims by city blocks, not laps.

If this sounds good to you, come join us. We have novice swimmers through advanced swimmers. You should be able to swim 500 meters, or about twenty laps, to be ready for an open water swim. Come check it out!
