Private Swim Lessons in Jacksonville , FL

When you register for private swim lessons with one of Sunsational Swim School’s Jacksonville-area instructors, rest assured that your child will quickly gain the water safety skills needed to help them avoid danger at your home or community pool. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee gives you the best possible opportunity for your swimmer to know how to avoid a fall into the pool, and how to turn around and get to the side if they do wind up in the water.
Our Jacksonville swim lessons are designed for learners of all ages—infant, toddler, older child, or even adult!—teaching needed skills in a matter of weeks, rather than the months it often takes with community swim lessons. Your swimmer will be able to approach water situations confidently, from your backyard pool to the water parks in Orlando on your next family vacation.
And, should your child want to swim competitively with one of the many Jacksonville-area swim teams, we can match them with an instructor with years of coaching experience, to get their strokes up to racing speed, teach flip turns, and refine their technique.
Maybe you or your significant other are training for a triathlon, or you have a young adult in the family that is hoping to pass a military swim test. No problem! We’ll pair you with a swim teacher with ample experience in helping adults to drop times, swim smarter, and perhaps win a race or two. (And, if you’re just plain afraid of the water, we’ve got great instructors for that too.)
There’s never a bad time to learn to swim with Sunsational! Whether you’re out hitting Jacksonville Beach, having fun at Shipwreck Island Water Park, or enjoying your own private swimming pool, learning how to enjoy the water safely is a must. At Sunsational Swim School, we bring those essential swimming skills to you.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Jacksonville

Focus on Water Safety

Because most drownings in Jacksonville happen in backyard swimming pools, we prioritize teaching water safety skills in our private lessons. At the core of our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee is learning how to safely recover from a fall into the water: knowing where to locate the closest wall, how to turn around, and how to reach the side.

Convenient Scheduling

Our instructors teach classes according to your timeframe. Need lessons on the weekends or want to schedule back-to-back sessions for three kids? Definitely!

Customized Lesson Plans

While community swim classes repeatedly use the same techniques, Sunsational Swim instructors design individualized lesson plans for every student. This personalized approach helps swimmers work through any fears and make quick progress in their swim skills, and our teachers’ fun, encouraging style makes every class a success.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

Why drive from Neptune Beach to Palm Valley for swim instruction when you can save time and money by learning to swim at home? Sunsational Swim teachers give private swim lessons anywhere in the greater Jacksonville area—it’s up to you!

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
Our swim instructor was flexible to our meeting time. She spent a great deal of time educating my daughter and me [parent] on ways to continue to work with her. She was very comfortable with kids.
Setting up lessons online was so easy. Then I was contacted by the instructor via email and text. Kylei has been absolutely wonderful with my daughter. I did not expect as much progress in swimming in such a short time. Thank you!.
Teaching a 2-year-old how to swim and be safe in the pool is no easy task, but Ms. SaCoastia did this with patience and persistence. She was just the right balance of kind and firm with my cautious child. My child is much more confident in the pool and can swim to the edge of our pool and monkey crawl to the stairs and get out on her own! This was only with one package, so we'll probably get another set of lessons to hone my child's skills even more! Thank you Sunsational and Ms. SaCoastia!
My 5 yr old daughter loved Miss Cocoa (Sacostia). She went from only swimming in the pool with her paddle jumper to swimming like a brave little fish within a few lessons. By the end she was swimming in the deep end, started to learn the breaststroke and could jump in and swim back and forth to the side with no problems. Miss Cocoa was very strict but kind. She was always on time and communicated well in advance if there was a delay or changes needed to the schedule. She was also very easy to work around my schedule and any changes that came up, mainly due to rain. I can't say enough nice things about Miss Cocoa. My daughter was so proud of herself. She still asks about Miss Cocoa. I will be sure to request her at the next round of lessons :)

SaCostia is amazing. She knows how to get the kids engaged. She is always on time and fun to work with. We are just midway through lessons and I am amazed at how much my sons can do in the pool.
SaCoastia Williams (aka Ms. Cocoa) was an awesome instructor to our two year old! She taught with love and determination and never gave up --even though our little swimmer was not always the most cooperative! We are amazed with our child's progress and it was all due to her great instruction!

We had tried lessons previously with another company and was immensely impressed by the quality we received with this company and will be a return customer next summer!
