OceanFit 4 Families

Give your child the gift of an ocean lifestyle

Learn from our expert instructors in ocean confidence lessons that teach you how to keep your family safe at the beach and in the waves.

If you are a parent, this clinic will instil confidence in your ability to instruct your children at the beach. You’ll learn ocean conditions, swim techniques and how to overcome children’s reservations and anxieties.

If you’re a child, you’ll have the best fun learning with your family and friends how to dive under waves, stay in control and bodysurf.

Common questions

When are clinics available?

Clinics are scheduled during the summer school holidays.

Keep an eye out on the website for scheduled clinics, and book into a clinic when they become available.

How many people are in a clinic?

We have a maximum of six parent/child pairs available for each clinic – so be quick when they come up!

Of course, this is for maximum safety and enjoyment.

How many children can accompany a parent at one time?

There is a maximum of one child per parent/guardian.

This is for maximum safety and attention for each child.

If you have more than one child, we suggest getting other adult family members involved, or returning to a future clinic with the next child.
