About
There's really no better all-round fitness activity than swimming. But 50 metres back and forth, back and forth in a pool staring at a black line isn't exactly for everyone. Swim as nature intended and learn a great new sport while you're at it. You'll be guided by a friendly instructor and learn the core techniques and tips to make the most of your ocean-swimming experience. Australia's a great big island surrounded by amazing places to swim, so let the experts show you how to dive in.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Swim the Whitsundays: This was a wonderful experience for me. Andre and the team delivered an outstanding adventure. As a relative novice to open water swimming I was supported and encouraged throughout. The swims exceeded my expectations. The extra activities - sunset beach get togethers, snorkelling and guided walks were beyond fantastic. The Solway Lass on board experience was an added bonus. I don't hesitate to recommend this once in a lifetime experience.

Turns out this was not for me and an ocean swimmer I am not. I essentially paid good money just to humiliate myself and rather than leaving the training wanting for more, I left with the feeling of "never again". Oh how I long for the days of being able to swim in the pools again...!

At least you gave it a crack :) As you say, ocean swimming is not for everyone. If you ever get the urge to give it another go, we'd love to welcome you back.

The whole experience was fantastic; easy to book, good communication leading up to the day was just right. The theory aspect was educational and going into the ocean to cement that learning was fun and although, a little scary for those of with fears, the instructors were great and gave you confidence that all would be ok! The tips were great and they encouraged you to keep going and stay in touch if you wanted more info. Great team.

Instructors Andre and Jules are very competent instructors. Great swimming at Bondi one of Australia's iconic beaches plus other locations available. Great balance of theory, understanding surf reports and practical experience in the ocean. Its an intensive 3 hour course. (all big ticks on my checklist)

Ensure you meet the min swim requirements to ensure you feel comfortable. They do allow fins to be worn for some extra confidence.

All the skills and knowledge I gained I immediately used to complete swim events I had booked. ( Great way to be a confident / competent ocean swimmer)

I personally think its a great course to complete for kids/family so you know they will be ocean safe.

This 3 hour course was loaded with information to increase ocean swimming knowledge. Both land and water based activities complemented each other in an absorbing lesson, and capped numbers ensured you got the best out of highly professional instructors in Andre and Jules. Fantastic morning at Bondi Beach.

My wife bought me a Learn to Ocean swim course to help me prepare for upcoming triathlon. Despite loving the beach and ocean for 30 years, this course was great in adding some additional confidence to do solo ocean swims and embrace swimming out in a rip. The theory session was a great refresher and Andre explained everything really well. The practical session was helpful and builds on your existing swimming knowledge rather than trying to reinvent your stroke or anything like that.

I would strongly recommend this course to anyone. You just need to be able to swim a bit and tread water for 45 mins but you will come out of it with more confidence and will definitely learn a few new tricks.

Spent the morning with my 18 yr old daughter learning to swim in the Ocean.

The skill has been passed on from parent to child but not in every case. Those of us who missed out need to be taught.

This 3 hour session was brilliant. Well taught and very safe.

Highly recommended. I really enjoyed my morning in the sun and surf and left feeling more confident about time in the water.

Meeting a Cooloongatta Gold athlete was an added bonus.

Thanks Dale! Meeting someone who'd done 200+ triathlons was an added bonus for us! Enjoy your ocean swimming :)

Really enjoyed this ocean fit intro course. Andre and Michael were very supportive. Give it a go even if you just want to be more confident in the surf this summer.

Andre and his team run amazing ocean swimming clinics. You get to swim in beautiful locations, learn how to read the ocean and techniques for safely navigating your way out and back.

The food is plentiful, the company is great. This was my second trip and I am already waiting for next years to be announced so I can book it in.
