Private Swim Lessons in Tampa , FL

If you look around the greater Tampa area, what do you see? Water! From Adventure Island near Busch Gardens to the top-rated Clearwater Beach just across the bay, the opportunities to make a splash and have fun are virtually endless. Here in the Sunshine State, learning to be safe in and around water is one of the most critical skills you can give a child.
At Sunsational Swim School, we offer private swim lessons throughout the Tampa area that will help learners of any age—from infant to adult!—master the skills needed to be safe in the water, whether in their own backyard or at the neighborhood swimming pool.
When you’re matched with a Sunsational swim teacher in Tampa, you’ll quickly see the difference between crowded, impersonal group swimming classes at the local pool and our personalized, highly effective private swimming lessons. Your swimmer will make progress in a matter of weeks, not months or years, and our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that you can trust that your child will demonstrate significant progress in our program—or we’ll provide up to four free lessons to help them perform our “Sunsational Safety Sequence.”
Already know how to swim but not sure how to take your strokes to the next level? If you or your child are hoping to swim competitively for the Greater Tampa Swim Association (GTSA) or one of the many other excellent teams in the area, we have private lessons available with current and former swim coaches who can improve your stroke mechanics and get you racing.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Tampa

Our Priority Is Water Safety

Because most drownings happen when a child is unable to exit the water safely after a fall into the pool, our Tampa swim lessons focus on teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the wall.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Want to schedule a toddler lesson before naptime? Absolutely! How about an afternoon class for an adult that’s been afraid of the water for years? Yes! Whatever timeframe fits your schedule is a perfect time for a Sunsational Swim lesson.

Lesson Plans Unique to You

No two swimmers are the same, so our teachers use a gentle, progressive approach to help every swimmer overcome any fears of the water and quickly learn the skills needed to be safe. We’re so confident in our approach that we offer our exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for ages 3 and up (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

You’ve got a busy life! Who needs to drive across Tampa to crowded swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim instructor can bring a private swim class to your home or favorite community pool?

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
Lauren is a wonderful swimming instructor. She is patient and kind and has made the lessons fun for my 4 year old son. After taking 12 lessons my son can swim underwater, float and swim above water. I did the class Monday - Thursday.
I’m so happy with our instructor Kristin Rankin. She is perfect for my daughter who adores her. She is patient and fun and most importantly I know she puts my daughter's safety first. Thank you!
My daughter's instructor Robin is wonderful, I cannot say enough about how much fun it is for my daughter to learn to swim. Sunsational Swim School offers a great and very convenient program. I was searching for a while for a good swimming instructor for my daughter until I came across Sunsational, and once they paired me with Robin, she was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Sunsational!
Amanda has been such a super swim instructor. She is very patient with our five-year-old daughter and always shows up on time. My daughter looks forward so much to each lesson that she marks each one on her on the calendar
Olivia had been an excellent teacher for my 4 yr old great grandson! Very patient and he loves her. Olivia definitely understands toddlers. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in lessons.
My son had lessons with Adriane and she was amazing! He is a swimmer after just a few weeks. People at the pool comment on what a good swimmer he is.
Debbie is amazing! My autistic daughter was terrified of going in the water without flotation support. Within two lessons my daughter proudly ditched the floaties forever! Within six lessons my daughter is swimming across the deep end of the pool unassisted. Based on the progress my daughter has made with Debbie, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get their little one up to speed quickly.
Positive and Encouraging! An Absolute Success!

Sunsational Swim School is a brilliant company! I hired them, recently, so my girls could learn to swim, and was absolutely impressed and pleased with the experience. The swim coach who was working with us was wonderfully accommodating, and very flexible about weather-dependent rescheduling. She was incredibly positive, and she put a lot of effort into meeting my youngest (four years old) at her (nervous, intimidated) level, and encouraging her, in the water. I really cannot speak highly enough of their service, and would absolutely recommend them!

Unfortunately, I had a very bad experience with water (near drown) and since then, I didn't want to be near water. I was scared to even allow myself to be fully in water. But it was a fear that I really wanted to overcome. So I contacted Sunsational Swim and within a couple of days, they paired me up with Apple, a professional Olympic swimmer. I was very wary before my lesson, not sure what to expect, but Apple was wonderful! She was so understanding, had so much patience, and just wanted me to be comfortable in the water. She constantly encouraged as I dealt with my fear, always saying I was doing a good job, and giving me the confidence to do it. I have taken 4 lessons so far, and although I still don't know how to swim or how to be in water, I am feeling much more confident. I don't see the water anymore as an enemy, thanks to my wonderful instructor, Apple. Thank you so much Apple and Sunsational Swim for working with me on overcoming my fear!
Morgan is the best! Flexible, knowledgeable, dependable and so fun!

My enthusiastic 2.5 year old swimmer was already very brave in the water and Morgan was able to keep up with her and help her learn so many skills! The puddle jumper had my little one use to swimming up right and Morgan totally changed that! My girl can not only swim from the wall to me(not super super far but far!) but she can jump in the water and turn around and swim back to the wall!

Can't recommend them enough!
