Ocean sound effects
Our free ocean sound effects are some of our most popular and have been used across many movies, games, apps, in music, interactive installations and much more. We spend a lot of time recording on or close to the beach so it’s only natural that this is one of our fastest growing categories, especially with the diverse sounds the ocean creates. From distant surf to close up recordings, this category includes waves on sand, stones, shingle, rocks, in rock pools etc. It also includes general ocean water sound effects and much more. Being so close to the sea, we are lucky enough to have plenty of time to record here, so if there is a specific sound we don’t have, feel free to post up a request in our Questions and Answers forum and we’ll do our best to record it for you.
