The Ocean First Swim Difference

Ocean First swimmers develop their abilities, overcome fears and gain confidence in no time. Our teachers are trained and certified in the Swim Schools International (SSI) methodology, emphasizing both skill development and comfort in the water. Our classes are tailored to the individual swimmer based on ability, not on a timeframe for completion. It means swimmers can move to the next level when they are ready instead of waiting for the entire class to reach their final goals. Our state-of-the-art facility, friendly and professional staff, small class sizes, and flexible scheduling ensure swimmers develop confidence and new skills while having a lot of fun along the way.

Learning Doesn't Stop When Class is Over

Education Replaces an Empty Mind With an Open One

At the Ocean First Swim School, our commitment to education doesn't stop at swim lessons. We appreciate all aspects of the underwater world and love bringing our other passions into the fold, such as in our Marine Science Mini Camp. Kids ages 4-8 explore questions about our amazing ocean and its inhabitants through hands-on activities, storytelling, and games before moving into the pool to develop their swim techniques in our week long intensive Marine Science Mini Camp. 

Our semi-competitive Swim Team is open enrollment and is a wonderful way for swimmers to strengthen muscles and expand their lung capacity while learning new drills and expanding their strokes.

Join the fun!

The Ocean First Swim School believes that families should have the opportunity to spend quality time together in the pool, which is why we've created our family swim time.

Join us on Saturday evenings from 5-7pm


HOURS: MON 9AM-6PM // TUE 9AM-7pm // WED 9AM-7PM // THURS 9AM-6PM // FRI 2PM-6PM
