Travesía Interminable, translated as The Forever Swim in English, is a book written by Antonio Argüelles about his life and experiences as he achieved the Oceans Seven.

The book is about to be published in Spanish.

Steven Munatones says, “The book delves into the inner thoughts, vision, loves, worries, and challenges of Antonio Argüelles.

He describes his colorful, goal-setting life within the dramatic backdrop of becoming the oldest person in history to achieve the Oceans Seven. Viewed ignorantly from an outside perspective, Antonio’s accomplishments are so numerous and his successes so constant throughout his life that it is hard to fathom the numerable obstacles he actually had to overcome. While Antonio is globally respected and admired for his triumphs both on dryland and in the water, the book provides an unknown, inside view of a remarkable person. The book will result in readers respecting this personable icon even more.”
