The Swim for Alligator Lighthouse is an 8-mile open water swim in Islamorada, the Florida Keys.

Founded by Florida Keys artist “Lighthouse Larry” Herlth, the event raises awareness of the six aging offshore Florida Keys lighthouses fabricated in the 1800s. Constructed to warn ships away from the Florida Keys reef tract, the lighthouses are no longer maintained, as their function has been replaced by Modern Global Positioning System navigation.





Proceeds from the swim benefit the Friends of the Pool in Islamorada, providing scholarships for high school students and funding swimming and diving programs for the community. The Swim also supports affordable investments towards the preservation of Alligator Light.
