Seeker Partners with Discovery on "The Swim" Featuring Ben Lecomte as First Man to Swim Across Pacific Ocean

Lecomte will be escorted by a sailing yacht where a crew will document his journey to further scientific and oceanic research.

At one point on the swim, Lecomte will be closer to the Space Station than land.

“The Swim” from Japan to San Francisco is expected to last six to eight months.

Viewers can follow Lecomte’s journey via ongoing coverage including a mid-form video series, short-form social videos, weekly Instagram Stories, weekly TV swim updates on Discovery and live coverage across platforms.
