Welcome to the Longest Swim!
In 1998, Ben was the first person in history to swim across the Atlantic Ocean without any flotation device. Now, he attempts the mighty Pacific.
Just as with his successful Atlantic Swim, Ben dedicates the Pacific swim to his father and to those that are struggling and in need of hope and inspiration. His swim across the Pacific Ocean is to be seen as a symbol of endurance, to keep moving and never give up.
