La Jolla Rough Water Swim is a renowned open water swim held in the La Jolla Cove, north of San Diego in California, USA in early September. The multi-race event, including the prestigious 3-mile Gatorman race, is billed as America’s premier rough water swimming competition and has been a summertime tradition in the La Jolla Cove since 1916.

The La Jolla Rough Water Swim attracts over 2,000 swimmers annually, ranging in age from 5 to 85 years old. The course has changed a bit over the years but today’s triangular courses and the natural arena like characteristics of the La Jolla Cove offer spectators a great view of the entire event. It is one of the World's Top 100 Open Water Swims.
