Join TCSD at Tamarack Beach in Carlsbad Monday and Wednesday evening.

North County ocean swimmers! Join TCSD at Tamarack Beach in Carlsbad Monday and Wednesday evening.


Meet at 5:45, and hit the water at 6:00 PM.

Directions: Take I-5 to the Tamarack Exit in Carlsbad. Go West. Look for us on the sand near the handicapped parking spaces.

Parking: A pay parking lot is located at the West end of Tamarack. California State parking pass is accepted. There is also free parking along the coast highway and side streets.

We swim through the surf together then meet up just past the breakers. From there we split into groups according to ability and swim about 1/2 mile parallel to shore. We gather up again at the turn-around then swim back. We use the buddy system so no one swims alone.

Tamarack is a surf Beach, so it this swim is for more experienced swimmers. It is a great place to practice your surf entries. If surf entries are new to you or make you nervous, let me know ahead of time, and I will make sure that someone stays with you to coach you through the surf.

See you at the beach!!

    Hi there Liz! I am a decent swimmer (can swim 1 mile in the pool comfortably) and am wanting to transition into open water swimming! I'm in the ocean all the time but have never actually attempted a mile swim. Wondering if this is right group for me or if you can make a recommendation? I'm 26 and in pretty good shape so I think I can catch on pretty quickly.....

    Would love to know your thoughts! Feel free to give me a call if that's easier for you.... [masked]

      Sure give it a try. Since we swim parallel to shore, you can go as far as you feel comfortable, then swim in.
