Ocean (1808 ship)

Ocean was a sailing ship built in 1808 at Whitby, England.

Under the command of Samuel Remmington she sailed from Spithead, England, on 21 August 1817, and arrived at Port Jackson on 10 January 1818. She transported 180 male convicts, none of whom died on the voyage.

Ocean left Port Jackson on 15 February bound for Batavia.

Under the command of William Harrison, Ocean sailed from Portsmouth on 24 April 1823, and arrived at Port Jackson on 27 August 1823. She transported 173 male convicts, six of whom died on the voyage.

Ocean left Port Jackson in February 1824 bound for London. While en route she encountered a large gale and she lost her live stock overboard. She also rescued the crew of the whaler Arab, before Arab sank. Ocean went to Saint Helena to undertake repairs and buy provisions. She arrived in London in 1825.
