See Why Others are Calling us the Best Swim Lessons!

Very grateful for their swim lessons!

Our family has been taking swim lessons for the past 5 1/2 years! Our instructor is patient, compassionate, nurturing, and fun. She has a special ability to help children feel comfortable and safe. My three children have always LOVED going to their lessons over the years. 

The facility is clean and friendly. The front office is always friendly and accommodating. They have excellent customer service and they always return my phone calls right away. Thank you for a great experience over the past 5 1/2 years!

We love their swim lessons

There is no other place like Sea Otter and they offer the  best swim lessons. My son was five months old when I enrolled him in the Parent/Tot class. The class was fun and introduced my son to the love of water and the pool with skills and songs. We continued going year round and by 1 ½, he graduated from the Parent/Tot program.

We transitioned to a private lesson and he had a hard time without me being in the water with him. His instructor was  so patient. For six weeks, she tried everything to get him to calm down and regain his love for the water. I was ready to give in and put him back in the Parent/Tot class, but she wouldn’t give up. And then one evening, something clicked and he stopped crying.

He learned water safety, kickers, scoopers, floating, roll over, diving, and the part he enjoys the most, the slide at the end. We have continued to come year around for the past 5 years. At 5 ½, I’m proud to say that I’m confident that my son has gained enough swimming experience that he is “water safe.”

With the skills he’s gained, he just completed his first kids triathlon and swam 25 yards unassisted. Not only was he proud of himself, but also as a mom I was so proud of him. He’s come so far and we’re not going to stop. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Sea Otter and I definitely appreciate all that everyone has done for my son.

HUGE Fan of Sea Otter and the Staff!

I just wanted to give a huge thanks to the instructors for their willingness to change things up to work with my kids. My oldest was having the hardest time with swimming, due to some core-muscle weakness he’s had since he was a baby. I talked to his instructor and she went out of her way to make things the best for all three of my kids. This great experience has made me a HUGE fan of Sea Otter and the staff there. 


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.

Love Sea Otter!

My son just turned 5 but we started him at Sea Otter when he was 4. At first, he was hesitant to put his face in the water. He did not know how to float. And unless he could touch the bottom, he did not feel comfortable in the water.

It has been 5 months since we started at Sea Otter and the change is incredible! Not only is he able to maneuver to the edge when he jumps in, he has learned some basic swim techniques and is no longer afraid to go underwater. 

The instructors are fun and friendly. The pool is perfect and they even have a slide! (My son really loves it when he earns slide time during instruction.) Plus, the people at Sea Otter are like family now and we would be sad if we could not see them every week!

Thanks to everyone at Sea Otter Swim Lessons for all your hard work, dedication, and knowledge! We love working with you!

Best for Toddler Swimming Lessons

I have twin three-year-old girls who began 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. Their instructors have been amazing, fun, patient and consistent. 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 lessons at Sea Otter. We quickly realized that Sea Otter would teach swimming and water safety skills in a fun and safe environment. His swim lessons were a wonderful experience! Thank you for providing a place of excellence where children come first.

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. (It is one of the few words he knows.) I made a scrapbook of Aiden and Cindy swimming together. It is his favorite book!

My Little Sea Otter!

I have been impressed with this school, their instructors and the customer service from everyone in the office from day one! I started my son in the parent/tot class when he was only 16 weeks old (the earliest they would let me) and he is now almost 28 months old. At first I didn’t see much progress but the instructor kept telling me to just stick with it and he will start showing progress! You know what? She was right! By six months old he was a pro at sticking his face in the water and doing his “ready blows.” By a year he knew the whole routine–kicking, scooping, and doing his humpty dumpty’s!

She encouraged Zachaary to start trying more advanced moves and just this past June, he finally started to do his back floats BY HIMSELF! Another great example of how much Zachaary has learned, we recently let him fall in the swimming pool at the neighbors (four adults sitting close by so we could be sure nothing would happen) and he did exactly what I wanted to see him do with no help! It is the most comforting and amazing feeling to see your child in the water and know that he knows what to do if and when he falls in. He knows to turn and grab for that wall! Thank you Sea Otter for the last 2 years of fabulous learning experiences and making my son safer in the water! We Love you all!

Started Swim Lessons to Help Bath Time

I took my granddaughter to swim lessons to make bath time more enjoyable. Washing her hair was a nightmare! I never 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! We love Sea Otter!


The Instructor Really Made a Connection with My Son

Dylan took lessons at Sea Otter for over a year. Every week his instructor would end the lesson with the same question, “hug or high five?” Dylan would always give her a high five. One day as he was leaving, he turned around, ran back to his instructor and gave her a big hug. I stood on the pool deck in tears. At that moment I realized the connection she had made with my son. His instructor called me that night to see if I was ok. I explained to her that Dylan had never given anybody a hug before, beside his dad and I. Then his instructor began to cry. Dylan trusted her and felt loved by her and he loved her back.

Happy Mom
