How deep is the water getting to Pelican Plunge?

Can an adult wade out to Pelican Plunge or is the water so deep you have to swim?

Thanks!

The depth depends on the tide. The sign says it is greater than 6 ft deep.
Guest must be 38 inches or taller to ride.
They require guest 38 to 48 inches to wear a life jacket which they provide.

Once you go down the slide you have to swim into shore in order to get back in line. You can get tired. Sometimes when there is no line they let you go back onto the platform.

Can kids over 48 inches have a life jacket too, or would we need to provide that?

They have a large box of life jackets for anyone to use.

Figure the water is never shallower than about 4.5 feet. So yes, sometimes it can be waded, by adults and teens of sufficient height, but sometimes not.

I had to swim, but I'm not that tall, and besides I'm a good swimmer.

I did, however, make the mistake once of having my mouth open (laughing at how fun it was) when I dropped into the water and got a mouthful of seawater (yuck!).

I am 5'4" and had to swim out when we were there in January. My kids are 8 and 9 years old and had to swim out as well.

Distance?

Does anyone know how far you have to swim to get there? Just want to ensure my DD is able to swim that far.
Thanks!
