Private Swim Lessons in South Florida , FL

Look at a map of the greater South Florida area, and what do you see? Water! From Cooper City to Palmetto Bay, there’s virtually no end to the possibilities for making a splash and having fun. Learning water safety is one of the most important skills you can give a child, especially in the Sunshine State.
Working with a Sunsational swim teacher in South Florida, you’ll be amazed at the difference between the local pool’s crowded, impersonal classes and our effective, individualized private swimming lessons. Ready to see progress in weeks, not months or years? Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that your swimmer will quickly show measurable improvement in our program. If, after the lesson package, your child (ages 3 and up) is unable to swim unassisted to the side of the pool (from a simulated fall), we offer up to four additional lessons for free until they can.
We offer private swim lessons throughout the South Florida area for learners of any age—infant to adult!—helping them master water safety skills, gaining confidence to swim in their own pool or maybe even at Rapids Water Park!
Additionally, if you or your child are thinking of swimming competitively with the Swim Fort Lauderdale team or any of the other accomplished aquatic clubs in South Florida, Sunsational Swim’s private lessons with current and former swim coaches will improve your stroke mechanics and help you butterfly, freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke your way to victory.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in South Florida

Sunsational’s Priority Is Water Safety

Our South Florida swim lessons focus on teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the wall—because many drownings occur when a child does not know how exit the pool safely after falling into the water.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

We all know that swim classes at naptime are not a good idea. With Sunsational, any time that fits your schedule is a great time for a lesson. Would you like an after-work session for an adult that has decided to conquer their fears and get in the water? We do that too!

Lesson Plans Unique to You

Our swim instructors use an individualized, gentle approach to help each swimmer overcome fears and learn all of the water skills needed to be safe. We’re so sure that swimmers will make quick progress that we offer an exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for students 3 and older (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

With work, school, sports, and more, your family is busy! Why make a drive from one South Florida suburb to another for crowded swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim teacher can bring a private class right to you?

I was very concerned with my daughter's reluctance to swim and dive underwater. She is 4 years old and her siblings are 9 and 7. When we first started her swimming lessons, We didn't think she was going to listen and follow the guidance of her swimming instructor, Alex. We were proven wrong!!!! His patience and swimming lessons are astonishing. We call him the " kid whisperer". Now, my daughter is not just a swimmer but a good one. I feel she may be even better than her siblings in such a short amount of time. Thank you so much Sunsational and Alex! You have given me peace of mind. I highly recommend Alex to teach great swimming skills to any child, no matter how challenging they may be!!!!!

We love Marianela who has been giving lessons to our 10-month-old daughter.
She is patient, warm, and knows when to push and when to just let our daughter have fun. She has made great progress in a short period of time which I couldn't believe such a young child. We recommend Marianela 100%!
Stephanie Villalon is absolutely the best swim instructor on the planet, and now that they’ve confirmed water on mars let’s make that the universe! She is always punctual and respectful, the kids absolutely love her. Our son was terrified of the water and after only a few lessons he was swimming. Today she advised that our last lesson is next week so I asked my son if he would like to continue, he said “I want 100 lessons”. She is also teaching our daughter and we plan in the coming months to have her teach our little baby. Five stars, two thumbs up, and one happy family! So glad to have her!!!
Thank you sincerely Stephanie!
I am so happy Sunsational Swim School paired us up with coach Gary. We did months of swimming lessons in the past with other swim schools and my son was still afraid of the water and never really learned how to swim. In only a few lessons, my son was already swimming from one end of the pool to the other and going under water to grab objects. I am extremely thankful and happy that coach Gary taught my son to finally loose fear of the water and enjoy swimming. -
Hannah was our swim instructor and was AWESOME. Worked well with my little man who can be a little but particular, but he absolutely loved her. She did awesome work communicating to me what they were working on each week and we could see clear progress. She was always responsive to my texts and always knew how many lessons we had left (which I did not ever know because #momlife). I would and will use Hannah again, 100%.
My swim instructor was Marianela F. and she did an amazing job. It's hard enough to teach a 17 year old how to swim but she managed to do it in only 6 lessons. Her lessons were not only educational but also fun.
Our experience with Sunsational has been exceptional! Gary is a phenomenal instructor and he is an expert at teaching the skills necessary. His genuine warmth and friendly demeanor helped build a great rapport with our son right away. We are so pleased with his progress so far!
Marianela F. was our instructor and we absolutely loved her. My two year old daughter looked forward to swimming lessons because she made it fun and interesting. My daughter learned the basics skills to swim within the 6 classes. I would definitely recommend.
Our swim instructor, Alex, was great with my two kids. He was very patient and they are both little swimmers now. Also very easy to schedule and work with doing make ups. Thank you Alex and Sunsational Swim.
