Private Swim Lessons in Boston , MA

Whether your family plays in the ocean during the summer or enjoys a “stay-cation” during the winter at Great Wolf Lodge, it’s always the right time of year for swim lessons in Boston! At Sunsational Swim School, we use a progressive, encouraging approach with private, one-on-one classes, working with each learner to acquire the necessary skills for safety in and around the water. Especially with our youngest swimmers, our swimming lessons in Boston begin with the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”, which consists of learning how to turn around and swim to the wall if they do fall in the pool.

Sunsational Swim teachers are available throughout the greater Boston area—from Chelsea to Wellesley!—which saves you the hassle and time you’re used to enduring in order to get to a group swim lesson. Are you tired of wondering if your kids will ever learn to swim, watching them doing nothing in a crowded class while the instructor works with other students? With Sunsational Swim, you will see progress in a matter of weeks—from the comfort of your backyard pool or favorite community pool.

We’re so confident that our lessons will help your child rapidly improve their water safety skills that we provide an exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for swimmers 3 and up: your child will swim to the wall without help (after a simulated fall into the pool) by the 12th lesson. If not, we’ll give you up to four extra lessons—at no cost to you—to help them master the process!

Also, if someone in your family hopes to race in the Boston Triathlon or even to work as a summer lifeguard at Revere Beach, Sunsational Swim School can match them with an instructor that will help refine their stroke techniques and make progress towards their goals: our lessons are for everyone!

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
Annie has her work cut out for her with my too soon to be 3-year-old. Annie has managed to teach my daughter many things that usually are taught to older children. Annie had amazing patience for my daughter constantly trying to change the program if you will. I give her a lot of credit. Annie is constantly updating me on her progress and what my expectations should be as well as what we should work on. Annie always goes with the flow and helps me to keep my daughter focused. She is very nice and my daughter loves her.
Jeremy has been super with my boys
