The owner and staff are amazing here. We have had about 10 different teachers throughout the years here and each one has been patient, consistent, and fun for my little ones. I love that they use salt water too!

Aqua Baby
This class is designed for babies and new walkers ages 6 to 18 months. A parent or caregiver participates in this fun class with their child. Both parents are welcome to participate if they like. Parents are taught techniques to enhance their child's comfort level in the water. Basics include water safety knowledge and practices, back floats, water submersion, and lots of fun and play in the water.

Aqua Toddler
This class is designed for toddlers ages 18 - 36 months. As with the Aqua Babies class, a parent or caregiver is required to participate in the water with their child. In addition to the skills taught in the Aqua Baby class, we focus on swimming readiness skills, participant socialization, and entering and exiting the pool. Snug-fitting reusable diapers or disposables made specifically for swimming are required for all children under the age of 3 - even those who are potty trained. Both are available at our swim shop.

Private & Semi-Private

Our preferred teaching method is in a group environment where children are not only learning from the instructor, but as importantly, are learning from each other. We do recognize, however, that some children do better in one-on-one situations. For those we offer private lessons. We will provide private lessons to children ages 24 months and older. Please come in or call to schedule.

We offer semi-private lessons which have a student to instructor ratio of 2:1. We recommend these lessons for children ages 30 - 36 months who aren't in the Aqua Babies class. Please come in or call to schedule. Registration
