The Coffs Coast Ocean Swims includes a fun and exciting set of open water swims for the whole family to take part in.

Running since 1996 the Coffs Coast Ocean Swims are held at Coffs Harbour’s Jetty Beach, on the beautiful Mid-North Coast. The swim courses are within the sheltered waters of the harbour, next to the iconic timber jetty, a reminder of the early days of coastal transport by sea and ‘timber getting’.

There are three swims on the day comprising a 600m swim followed by a junior 300m swim followed by a 2000m swim

Sawtell Surf Life Saving Club thanks all those participating for your support and wishes you well with your swim. For more infomation please contact us via coffscoastoceanswims@gmail.com
