Sharks in Charleston Harbor? These would be very friendly sharks touting their gracious “southern hospitality”. The inaugural Charleston Sharkfest Swim will feature a 2 kilometer swim in the Charleston Harbor from just off the historic Castle Pickney on Shutes Folly Island to finish at the dock at the Maritime Center next to the South Carolina Aquarium. Swimmers will board a ferry at the Maritime Center in Charleston for the ride to the swim start. Swimmers will jump off the ferry and swim to a floating start line. The swim start will be signaled by a ferry horn. The swim has been timed to take advantage of the flood tide.

PLEASE NOTE: This swim is not for novices. This event is for experienced open-water swimmers only. You should be able to swim one mile comfortably in a pool in under 40 minutes.
