Waterkeeper Swim Guide

Waterkeeper Swim Guide


*As seen on USA Today, Huffington Post, LA Times, and Mashable.**

The Waterkeeper Swim Guide makes it easy to explore and enjoy the best beaches in Canada and the USA. You can list the beaches closest to you, browse the map, or search for a beach by name. Every beach is marked with a Green, Yellow, or Red icon so you know when a beach is open for swimming and when the water quality is poor.

By the Memorial Day weekend, you will be able to choose from 5,000 beaches located on the Atlantic, Great Lakes, Gulf, and Pacific coasts.

- Compare real-time and historical water quality information for many different beaches
- Get directions to the beach of your choice
