The course is a wild stretch of water full of jellyfish and sharks. It is known for strong currents and frequent and violent storms.
Australian Susie Maroney successfully swam the Straits in 1997 using shark cage.

Diana Nyad has made 4 attempts to cross, hoping to be the first person to do the swim without a shark cage. She was forced to abandon her latest attempt in August of 2012, 55 miles off the coast of Key West due to strong currents, jellyfish stings and an approaching storm.
