21 Photos Show What The US Navy And The Marine Corps Do For Fun In The Ocean

I would join the Navy for this!

“Swim Calls” are one of the few drills sailors aboard US military ships can truly enjoy. It gives them the opportunity to do the things they may have missed doing when they were kids. It also helps them get through the loneliness they are facing everyday for being away from their loved ones.

For these sailors, the world is a big swimming pool. It doesn’t matter where they are; there is always a huge body of water to jump into. They can have a few laps of swimming in the Pacific or dive into the warm saline waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Check out these pictures from the United States Navy, showing how they do things for fun in the water all around the world.

People may think these guys are just training in a large swimming pool.

    • Amber Fisher

      February 27, 2016 at 3:20 PM

      You have to in boot camp, if you don’t know how they teach you and if you don’t pass the swim portion you don’t finish boot camp which means you don’t get to join the fleet.

    • Biff Tannen

      February 27, 2016 at 4:40 PM

      Oh that’s fair enough. Let’s say you do fail the swiming lessons, can you still take it again? Ofc right?

    That’s not an aircraft carrier. This doesn’t happen that often in the Navy. I never saw it happen.

    • Juanita Hathaway Patterson

      February 27, 2016 at 1:24 AM

      This isn’t an aircraft carrier. It is a navy ship that carries boats called ducks and Lara’s. My husband did it in the Carribean when he was in the Navy

    • Justin Jordan

      February 27, 2016 at 1:50 AM

      Yeah I know. I served on a aircraft carrier.

    Wouldn’t swim at the back of an Aircraft carrier.Propellers auto turn on and off all the time to correct drifting and you wouldn’t want to be near them when they do.

    • Alec Ningiuruvik

      February 26, 2016 at 8:06 PM

    • Jose Orta

      February 26, 2016 at 10:12 PM

      That’s not a CVN ( aircraft carrier) that’s a LHD Class (amphibious assault ship) it looks like a CVN but Smaller only for AV-8B Harrier II aircraft and Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC).

    • Bobby Flores

      February 26, 2016 at 9:33 PM

      Where in hell did you get that idea? Have you taken your meds lately or you just need medical attention fast dude! The only religion that promotes violence and killing is what? Take a look, whenever these people are around, there’s always a mess and please dont call me dude cause im not stupid as what u think. When we come to visit your country, you would like us to totally respect your culture, and thats totally fine. However, when you come over to our country, you would like us to change to the way you live to satisfy your needs. Well you said you are just exercising your freedom, well fine. how about your freedom to leave!! We dont want you in our country in the first place. Why they choose to come to us and take refuge? Planet mars is accepting immigrants!!! BTW, price of oil is dropping and it’s only a matter of time for us to see you back riding camels and donkeys. We spent a lot of tax money to fix your mess, we had enough. Please refrain from calling us, Russia, UK, France or NATO for any international military assistance and that would be highly appreciated.
