Anyone ever swim here? I know this is where the tri swim is, so it has been done. How about on your own? Safety, conditions, underwater scenery, other swimmers...? I recently returned from a trip to San Diego and did another swim in La Jolla Cove. Great place. The area reminds me of Lover's Point in PG and we live waaaay closer. Just wondering.

If you're still looking to swim at Lover's Point, you should check out the Kelp Krawlers. They swim there and at Del Monte Beach in Monterey two or three times a week. I swam with them on a Tuesday, early evening last September in Monterey, and they were a great bunch of people. Check with Chris Villanueva at cvillatri@yahoo.com

The Kelp Krawlers Rock! Great bunch of people, no pressure, and a variety of swimming conditions and distances. Kelp is almost always part of the equation as is the 55 - 60 water temps. Check out their web page: https://www.facebook.com/KelpKrawlers

This group swims Tuesday evenings @ 5:15 pm, Friday night @ 6:00 pm and Sundays @ 11:00 am. Check for seasonal times and locations (either Wharf 2 in Monterey or Pacific Grove @ Lover's Point). Bring food and drink? for tailgating Fridays and Sundays which is always the best or just join in.

Groups range from 10-50 depending on who is training for what events.

The marine life and kelp at Pacific Grove will spice up your swims but you will never ever leave disappointed. Guaranteed.

Sorry. Been away from the post for awhile. I looked at the web page. Sounds like a blast. There is still some good whether left. Hopefully we can fit in a trip soon!
