On Wednesday, May 30th, a long-distance swimmer by the name Ben Lecomte will be embarking on a historic 5,500-mile long swim across the Pacific Ocean in an effort to gain awareness on the state of ocean health from pollution.
You may remember Ben Lecomte from being the first man to swim across the Atlantic in 1998. Lecomte will be accompanied by Seeker as he swims from Japan to San Francisco in the expedition called “The Swim”.
Seeker have teamed up with Discovery and Nomadica Films and you can follow In-depth coverage of The Swim here:
