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. Debbie & Mel

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! Jennifer

Mom to 18-month-old Aiden

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. Johnny's Grandma

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. Pearl
