Swimming Holidays in North America

Discover the hidden gems of this beautiful and diverse continent with one of our amazing swimming holidays in North America.

Whether it’s swimming amongst the breathtaking canyons of Arizona, exploring the beauty of Mexico’s remote Baja Peninsula or completing the iconic ‘Escape from Alcatraz’ swim in San Francisco, North America is home to some truly spectacular swimming adventures. Join us on one of these unique open water swimming tours to discover the vast array of stunning landscapes and fascinating wildlife both above and below the water.


Alcatraz! The very name conjures up visions of sharks, frigid waters, Al Capone and the barren, fog-enshrouded "rock". It closed as a federal prison in 1963 and is now a desolate outpost just 10 miles off San Francisco's Presidio Park.

Baja Peninsula - Mexico

This trip has something for everyone - you'll get a taste of all that is on offer from the crystal clear waters, stunning landscape and culture on the Baja Peninsula. With water temperatures around 27°C you'll feel like you're swimming in the bath, except the Sea of Cortez is much clearer and bluer, and you'd never get all the sandy beaches, dramatic cliff faces, sea lions and amazing marine life in your bathroom!
