Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Reviews

The UCSD pools are among the best in the county. Pool 1, above, is all-deep and used principally for team training, but leaves lots of lanes for recreation lap swimming. Lanes are usually set 25 yards, side-ways to the 50m length. The temperature is kept at 80ºF. year-round. There's a top quality Masters program, superb spa, and good locker room facilities. BEWARE: Parking is a pain when classes are in session; meters are enforced on weekends and holidays.
Anyone can be a community member or pay a $10 drop in fee to swim here. Parking is $3 an hour on weekdays after 7 AM and free on weekends. Masters swimmers now have an option to purchase night and weekend parking permits for $14/month. (For more on parking, see THIS PAGE)

General hours are: Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Rec Diving Saturday, 1:00 to 4:00 PM and Sunday 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. See the bottom of THIS PAGE for the full schedule.

You can find membership information HERE.

The Masters use the 50m configuration from April to September; 25 yard configuration the rest of the year.

It's a world class facility with beautiful views!
