Mariel Hawley, the amazing Mexican mermaid, is close to fulfill one more challenge in her storied career: swimming across Banderas Bay.

Although this 42 km-crossing (from Punta de Mita, in Riviera Nayarit, to Cabo Corrientes, south of Puerto Vallarta) is scheduled to take place between October 22nd and 26th, 2020, Hawley is already at our destination to begin her training. It is expected that this attempt can be completed in 14 to 16 hours.

Mariel Hawley is the 15th person in the world to complete the Seven Seas challenge, which includes the English Channel (33 km), Catalina Channel (34 km), Strait of Gibraltar (18 km), Molokai Channel (46 km), North Channel (35 km), Tsugaru Strait (30 km) and Cook Strait (28 km). In addition, she is the first Mexican to achieve the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming.

Altruistic Strokes

This extraordinary crossing with a cause is called “Corazón de Mar” (Heart of Sea), which will benefit the Puerto Vallarta’s Corazón de Niña shelter through the donation of resources generated by the tickets sales to participate in the online lecture “Cada Brazada Venciendo Límites” (Overcoming Limits with Each Stroke), given by Hawley. Its cost will be $200 MXN per person.

“Today it’s my turn to do my bit and put in a lot of strokes to support others who are facing a much more intimate, personal, and complicated battle called ‘cancer’. My idea is to make a crossing that marks out a new route, that blazes a new path for other people to follow”, shared Hawley.
