Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Annual Swim Around Key West (12.5 miles). Please carefully read all of the information provided in the various sections of our website.

The Annual Swim Around Key West has chosen to donate any profit after all our bills are paid to the Cross Country Team of the Key West High School. After the 41st Annual Swim, we were pleased to be able to give this group a check for $4,300. Our hope is to increase this amount each year.
