About

 

The St. Croix Coral Reef Swim attracts fitness swimmers competing for fun, as well as world-class open water athletes. Swimmers as young as 11 years old and as senior as 75 years old are among the race contestants.  The 2016 race is on November 6, 2016.

The event includes a one mile, two-mile and a five-mile race through turquoise water and colorful coral reefs, both ending at The Buccaneer's palm-lined beach where a steel band and refreshments await. The one-mile and the two-mile race follow the shoreline of St. Croix's east end, and the five-mile race begins at Buck Island, a living coral reef designated an underwater park by the U.S. National Park Service. With three distances to choose from, the Coral Reef Swims offer an experience for all level of swimmers.
