I am practicing for the Golden Gate swim but I live near Santa Cruz. Where is a good place to practice a 1.5 mile ocean swim?
The Santa Cruz Wharf and Cowell Beach.
Start on one side of the wharf, swim around it and finish on the beach.
But be sure you have someone with you on a board or swimming with you,
Look at the SC Triathlon Club, who swims at Cowell Beach sometimes, or the SC Masters Aquatics.
Don't get too close to the wharf or you might get hooked by a fisherman.
We just spent 2 nights at The Dream Inn and saw lots of ocean swimmers at the beach there. Last night when we dined at Aquarius there was a large group of swimmers going out. :)
