Victorian Open Water Swim Calendar

Welcome to the 2016-17 Casey Seals Open Water Swimming Calendar. It started in 2001 and has grown to become the most comprehensive source of information for ocean swim and open water swim events in Victoria.

Most of the events are held between November and March at beaches around Port Phillip Bay and Westernport Bay, with some ocean swims along the beautiful and rugged Victorian coast. There are also a few river swim events, mainly in the mighty Murray River, as well as some lake swims.

The calendar was compiled from various sources, including the Cousins Tours & Travel open water swimming calendar, the websites of the organisations running the swims and from information supplied by the organisers themselves.

Most of the swims in the early and middle part of the season have been finalised now and some of the later events have also been finalised. However, sometimes dates and details can change, so keep checking back regularly for updates.

For more information about the calendar, Open Water Swim training squads, groups and events or any of the Victorian swims, email Greg Chaplin at ows@caseyseals.com.au (no unsolicited commercial emails please).
