Parking and Shuttle

The TikiSwim is a point to point swim. We use the English Bus Company double decker buses to shuttle athletes and spectators to and from the Pier start area and then from the finish back to their cars.

We will send out an Athlete Letter as the event gets closer with all way too much information, but know the easiest place to par, and it’s FREE, is the Oceanside Transit center. It is a short walk to the pier and it is a primary shuttle stop after the TikiSwim.


Race Timing will be offered by Race Timers using a reusable timing chip attached to your ankle. Live results will be available at the finish line and online.  Timing chips must be returned at the finish line.

1.2 and 2.4 mile swim courses

You’re gonna love this course.

Both the 1.2 and 2.4 mile swimmers will be required to pickup their race packet on the south side of the Oceanside Pier. We have double decker shuttle buses that will take the 1.2 swimmers to their start at the Oceanside Harbor.

The 2.4 mile swim starts at 7:30am from the beach south of the pier. Swimmers will head straight out and make a right turn at the first buoy. It is then a drag race to the harbor for a nice still water finish. In the harbor swimmers will follow the harbor structure and will not have any buoys to follow.

The 1.2 mile swim starts at 8:00am from the harbor beach and does a pick U-turn, merging on to the 2.4 mile course at their first buoy.

For both courses after the surf start, the TikiSwim course is known for its glassy and smooth water course and finish.



No other race takes care of their athletes like the TikiSwim.

All finishers will receive:

  • Kukui Nut Finisher Lei

  • Handwoven Satin Lei

  • Fresh handmade breakfast burrito

  • Other cool swag…
