Our Story

Our mission is to increase the survivability of our athletes via amphibious fitness education classes, seminars, and through our podcast.

The Coastal Athlete Program was founded in 2017 to provide an affordable, scalable, safe opportunity for water rescue professionals and local communities to learn about the benefits of an outdoor approach to fitness and health. We launched our PODCAST in 2018 to extend that reach and carry our message beyond Monterey Bay to the world.

The Coastal Athlete Program seeks to make our public lands accessible for all participants so that they may enjoy the benefits of an outdoor lifestyle. Our staff and students are ambassadors to mother ocean, we make sure to give back in some way to the local environment everytime we come together to train.
