Previously offered programs

Based out of Bondi Beach until 2020, we offered a range of programs to suit the varying needs of open water swimmers of all ages throughout Sydney. The time has now come for the next evolution of OceanFit, and with this, the retirement of some of our programs.

We thank all our valued participants for their loyal support and we look forward to welcoming you back for a new OceanFit experience!
