  • Goggles in NSW Exit Test?

    For the NSW Exit Test at the end of your tenure at Great Lakes, do SEAL candidates get the option of race goggles or a face mask for the 1 km swim?

    I'm aware that during the PST's taken at bootcamp candidates do not get to wear masks during the swim portion. I'm a long-time swimmer and surfer, so a little water in my eyes doesn't bother me too much, especially on a short 500 yard swim, but I'm unsure as to whether the longer exposure will lead to inflammation over the longer distance. Should I start acclimating to swimming longer distances without goggles or not worry about it?
