About Sea Otter Swim Lessons

Our private swimming lessons give swimmers individual, focused attention, allowing them to learn swimming and safety skills quicker than in traditional group classes.

Along with teaching children and adults how to be safer in and around water, we also introduce them to life skills of self-confidence, perseverance, and courage. We are committed to providing an environment where your child feels safe enough to try new things and accomplish goals. We delight in the opportunity to love, invest in, believe in, build up, and teach each child.

Our secure and loving approach benefits swimmers of all ages. We have been providing high-quality swim lessons in Placer County for more than 20 years. We can help if you are just learning to swim or want to work on stroke technique and endurance.

What Others Are Saying About Sea Otter

The Best Swim Lessons!

We can’t thank you enough for working so hard and gently to teach Addison how to swim. He has come so far, it was wonderful to watch. To go from crying (first 6 lessons) to the confidence he now has. I tribute this to the patience, demeanor, knowledge, skill, and efforts of his instructor. Thank you for having such a positive impact on all our lives.

My 18-month-old Loves Teacher Cindy!

Every morning my son goes to his bottom drawer and pulls out his swim trunks. He brings them to me and repeats “Cindy, Cindy” over and over again. (It is one of the few words he knows.) I made a scrapbook of Aiden and Cindy swimming together. It is his favorite book!

Started Swim Lessons to Make Bath Time Better

I took my granddaughter to swim lessons to make bath time more enjoyable. Washing her hair was a nightmare! I never would have dreamed that 2 months later she would be swimming underwater and jumping into the pool by herself. I’m so grateful to her instructor for encouraging me to stick with it (after several lessons of screaming). Now bath time is fun!! My family loves Sea Otter Swim Lessons.

Toddler Swim Lessons

I have twin three-year-old girls who began swim lessons at Sea Otter this April. Now, in their sixth month of lessons, they have both made such outstanding progress, especially considering we don’t have our own pool at home to practice. I am now confident that if they should fall in a pool, they have the skills to get themselves out. Both of their teachers, Nancy and Kenny, have been amazing, fun, patient, and consistent. They have never missed a lesson and the girls LOVE coming every week. The location is beautiful. The pool and facility are clean and safe, and the staff is very friendly. I have nothing but good things to say about Sea Otter Swim Lessons.

Children Come First at Sea Otter!

My grandson took swim lessons at Sea Otter Swim Lessons. We quickly realized that Sea Otter would not only teach swimming and water safety skills; but do so in a fun, safe environment with the focus being what was best for our grandson. His lessons were a wonderful experience in which he was excited to learn. Thank you Sea Otter for providing a place of excellence where children come first.
