Race Course: The race begins on Buck Island, which boasts a spectacular beach and living coral reef designated as an underwater park by the National Park Service, continues across the channel and then along St. Croix’s shoreline of colorful reefs and sandy bottom.
Race Course: The two mile race will start on the west side of Pull Point. Swimmers will head west passing Shoys Point/Beach before reaching the final turn buoy about 800 yards off the Mermaid Beach at The Buccaneer, where they will aim at the palmed-lined finish line.
Race Course: The One mile race will start on Shoys Beach. Swimmers will head west before reaching the final turn buoy about 800 yards off the Mermaid Beach at The Buccaneer, where they will aim at the palmed-lined finish line and steel pan band greeting them.
Many participants make the St. Croix Coral Reef Swim an annual event due in part to the festive nature of The Finish. Live steel pan music and tropical beverages await the finishing swimmers of all three races along with the crowd on the Buccaneer’s Mermaid beach.
