Group Swim Lessons

Our swim lessons are now based on the renowned Starfish Aquatic Institute (SAI) curriculum dedicated to water safety training and certification worldwide. With a revamped, learner-focused structure organized into color-coded levels, we aim to accelerate skill development, reducing the need for level repetition. This change ensures that more participants can benefit from our program.

Our goal is for everyone to be safe and have fun in the water!
