Up for the challenge?

Sign up for a free ocean swim challenge to reach your goal event with confidence.



We've planned every week of your training, so you don't have to. You train at the pool, at home and online, at your own pace and in your own time.


Register for your swim goal early, then start the countdown and train one week at a time. Weekly prize challenges give you something to strive for.


In 8-weeks you'll be fit and confident for the big day. You won't be able to stop smiling as you cross the finish line in front of your friends and family.

Training made fun & easy

Online learning

Learn about the ocean through the eyes of an ocean swimmer, develop new swimming techniques, and create a strong and healthy summer body.

Training plans

Whether you're at the pool swimming training, or working out your core at home, you'll be following a structured program with simple lesson plans.

Complete challenges

For extra motivation, each week there's a challenge for you to complete. If you're successful, you'll get a badge and go in the draw to win awesome prizes!

Social community

Training is fun when it's social. You can connect with other swimmers, share your journey, and organise to meet up on the big day to celebrate!


Win a trip for two to compete in the 2018 Whitehaven Beach Ocean Swim, as part of the Hamilton Island Endurance Series*

We’ll be adding new challenges that involve ocean swimming, but they won’t be training for an event.

No way, our challenges are free. Cool huh?!

Nope. These challenges are designed to be achievable for participants that live anywhere. If you can make it to the beach during your training, it will be beneficial, but it’s not going to stop you training for the big day.

No it doesn’t. We provide you with training plans you can take to the pool, and online lessons you can complete at home.

If you’d like coached training, see OceanFit’s training options at the beach

Our challenges are a great way for event organisers to add value to their events, by:

  • Motivating and inspiring more people to get involved
  • Giving nervous first timers the confidence to enter their first event
  • Assisting previous participants in your event to re-enter at a longer distance
  • Engaging your participants for an extended period in the lead up to the event.

We’d love to include your event, please email Andre for more information.

After signing up to the website, you’ll need to sign up for your challenge.

To sign up for a challenge, go to the challenge of your choice and click on the “Sign Up For This Challenge” button
