Diego Rivas of the Los Cabos Open Water Challenge announced a new 32 km marathon swim in Baja California called the Los Cabos Open Water Acuarium.

He explains, “The race is for high performance swimmers. The name of Acuarium is taken from Jack Cousteau’s l’acuarium du monde.

On October 19th, Mariel Hawley will be the first swimmer to attempt the 32 km route from Puerto Los Cabos in San José del Cabo to Playa el Médano in Cabo San Lucas.

Then on October 21st, we will hold a press conference to explain the viability of the project, registration format, dates, and regulations for individual swimmers to challenge themselves anytime between December 2019 and May 2020.

By the end of April 2020, a date will also be announced for the ACUARIUM THE RACE. This is an individual competitive race of 32 km, held exclusively for 6 swimmers with a US$1,000 prize. We wish to make the ACUARIUM into one of the most important marathon swims on the international calendar.”

Hawley explained her motivation, “Diego invited me to do the Acuarium Swim and I immediately said yes. It’s such a privilege to swim in the beautiful waters of the Mar de Cortés into the Pacific Ocean.”

Revas is also organizing the next 14 km Los Cabos Open Water Challenge that will be held on May 2nd 2020 in in San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
