That water is COLD. I wouldn't want to be in it, just standing, for the time of the swim, but when I was a teenager I was one of the few who did swim in the water next to Morrow Rock in CA. It is COLD. I remember.

Can you wear a wet suit?



Yes. Wetsuits are allowed and probably 99% of the triathletes will wear one. I will.

However, there's an open water swim club that organizes Alcatraz swims and reports that 15-20% of their swimmers opt not to wear one. Those folks must swim in the bay regularly and I would assume are accustomed to the cold water. Most triathletes log the majority of their time in a pool.
