You can swim in the sound.  Many do, I personally do not.  If you do, remember to rinse off afterward to avoid the salty chafe.

Yes, you can go swimming in the Sound.  Probably best to make the trek to west beach--better spots for swimming & nearby shower to rinse off once you're done.

Maybe I'm just a little jaded from growing up on the shore close to bpt., but I personally wouldnt swim in the sound, especially right in bpt... That's just me, of course a lot of people do though

If you're not the best swimmer then just be safe and have someone with/watching you. Otherwise, go nuts!

many have. might have something to do with the fact many don't swim in da sound. that and all the other nasty shit floating in it. the sound is a cesspool. they clean up most of the needles on the beach before vibes too.

Why is the water so bad? The long island portion of the sound isnt that messed up. Bridgeport funk?
