Burgh Island - Devon

Gulf of Corryvreckan - Scotland

Take part in one of Scotland’s most iconic open water swims across the fabled Gulf of Corryvreckan. Situated to the north of Jura and lying just off Scarba’s southern shore, the Gulf is transformed into a whirlpool during both flood and ebb tides as the sea surrounds a pinnacle that rises to within 30 metres of the surface.

Alcatraz

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.
