Its started in  2016, where Oceanman became the only International World Championship in Open Waters, offering both professional and amateur swimmers the chance to achieve their personal goals in unique locations, for their beauty and surroundings, like the Caribbean Sea, Pacific and Mediterranean.


There are currently 7 OCEANMAN races established in several continents, as well as ten additional races in preparation. The event caters for swimmers of all abilities, from beginners to more confident swimmers and elite professionals.
