About us

The home of ocean swimming since 1999

oceanswims.com has been at the forefront of the sport of ocean swimming for more than 20 years. Founded by Paul Ellercamp, the website brought together ocean swim events from across Australia and was ahead of its time.

In the time since, the sport has grown exponentially as more people take the plunge, leaving the safety and guidance of the black line, to enjoy the freedom of swimming in the ocean.

In August 2021, Paul passed on the baton to Andre Slade and his wife Juliann, the owners of Australia's leading ocean swimming training and swimming holiday business, OceanFit, to lead the sport into the next 20 years.
