Catalina Channel Swimming Federation

NAVIGATORS RECOMMENDED BY THE CATALINA CHANNEL SWIMMING FEDERATION

Escort vessel charges are entirely separate from CCSF membership and sanction fees.

The first step to arrange a Catalina crossing is to schedule a date with an escort. Recommended captains are docked at the 22nd Street Landing in San Pedro. They operate independently of the CCSF, though we have a close relationship based on their decades of experience.

The CCSF works closely with these boat captains. They operate independently of the CCSF and determine their own schedule and charges.
