If you have ever wanted to try an ocean swim, then this event is for you! The Shellharbour Ocean Swim is one of the nicest and most picturesque set of ocean swims in New South Wales. The main swim is a 1.2 kilometre event that starts at Shellharbour Boat Harbour and across to Shellharbour North Beach.

You begin at the sandy foreshore of Shellharbour Boat Harbour and head through the boat harbour entrance, then swim out and head north around Cowries headland, follow the foreshore to Cunji Rock Platform and onto the main patrolled beach at North Shellharbour. Fine and mild autumn conditions prevail at this time of the year. Water temperatures are still favourable for swimmers and wetsuits are not generally required.

Ocean Swim categories consist of Open male and Open female, male and female divisions under 18, 18-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70 plus. There will be a "Anything Goes Category  for those who wish to wear fins, fancy dress, snorkels, wetsuits and whatever as long as it is legal! Minimum age for the event is 13 years. Participants will only be eligible for one divisional prize, Open male and open female 1st $250, 2nd $150, 3rd $75. Junior swim starts at 09:00am and the main swim at 10:15am, registrations on the day will be at the surf club premises or online visit
