Coach Pedro Ordenes Chile
Coach Pedro Ordenes, beloved founder of Water World Swim, is known worldwide for his record-breaking swims. Pedro holds the world record for Alcatraz swim crossings - over 900. He is also the only person to complete a round trip crossing of the Beagle Channel between Chile and Argentina, in water temperatures averaging 39F and without a wet suit. And in 1999, Pedro swam across the Strait of Magellan in 39.7F waters just to celebrate the new millennium.
If you can swim a mile in the pool you are ready to transition to open water! Our Swim With Pedro sessions are 1-hour swims and a great place to practice in the open water with coaches on hand, whether you're training for an event or getting into open water for the first time.
