Yes, you can definitely still participate. No one is required to swim. In fact, we actively encourage people to bypass deep water swims if they are even the slightest bit unsure.
The obstacles consisting of water range from 4 to 15 feet deep. For example, the water at Davy Jones is about 15 feet deep, Colossus is 4-5 feet deep, and Sawtooth bars will be about 5-6 feet.
We will have lifeguards stationed at each water obstacle, and do not force anyone to attempt any obstacles that they may feel uncomfortable with. You can always ask the lifeguard or volunteer at the obstacle about the water depth. If you are not a strong swimmer, please do not risk your safety and the safety of those around you.
