We couldn't be more excited to be bringing WH2Ocean back in 2023!

We are in good hands with our talented and experienced open-water coaches, Carly Miller and Brittaney Talbot. We will also have our own dedicated ocean guard. 

No prior experience is necessary. If you have an interest in ocean swimming, come to a workout and see what it’s all about!
