The Naples Island Swim & SUP is an open water swimming and stand up paddle board competition that features seven races of differing lengths. The events span from a 200-meter swim for younger kids to a 3-mile swim and 6-mile stand up paddle that circumnavigate Naples Island. Los Alamitos Bay is no stranger to open water swimming competition. In 2010 Marine Stadium played host to both the USA Swimming Open Water National Championships and the Pan Pacific Championships open water competition. It is the choice training ground for many local athletes. The Naples Island Swim & SUP is an annual opportunity for the City of Long Beach, the Aquatic Capital of America, to showcase its leading position as a destination for aquatic competition.
Competitor safety support is provided by the Long Beach Marine Safety Division.
