Ocean pools are the wildest sort of public seawater pool and their ongoing use, study and celebration cannot be taken for granted.
All into Ocean Pools Inc defines an ocean pool as a public seawater pool sited on a surfcoast so that waves can wash in to the pool. All into Ocean Pools Inc therefore does not regard any stinger enclosures or other slatted or netted swimming and bathing enclosures as ocean pools and does not regard any seawater pools in sheltered waters such as Sydney Harbour as ocean pools.
Our current lists of ocean pools includes pools filled from the Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean or Atlantic Ocean.
At present, we do not regard seawater pools on the English Channel, Irish Sea or North Sea as ocean pools, but we do accept that any public seawater pool near a surf lifesaving club or a recognised surfing area has claims for recognition as an ocean pool.
While nature can create ocean pools, most ocean pools are a blend of the natural environment and human efforts to improve, build, or excavate a pool on a rocky surf coast
Please contact All into Ocean Pools Inc if you have information about a public seawater pool that you think merits recognition as an ocean pool.
