For more than 20 years, the aquatic educators at Sea Otter Swim Lessons have been offering age-appropriate classes in swim and stroke development. Designed for children 4–36 months, Parent Tot classes cover water exploration, breath control, and safety skills over the course of four 30-minute sessions. Parents can slap on their old water wings and vestigial tails before jumping into Sea Otter's 92-degree pool, where tykes grow comfortable in the water through use of songs and games.
For wee ones 4 and older, Sea Otter's semiprivate lessons will match swimmers with a partner of their same skill level as they receive instruction in a progression of animal-themed skill levels. Over four 30-minute sessions, tiny swimmers learn to float comfortably in the water and practice breathing in Frog before graduating to pop-up breaths, independent freestyle, and elementary backstroke in Fish. Toddlers 12 months and older can also benefit from four weeks of one-on-one private lessons. Students will spend each 20-minute session learning to master mature swim stages such as Sea Otter and Dolphin from their instructor, with optional trident-tossing instruction held after each class.
Sea Otter Swim Lessons
Sea Otter Swim Lessons employs a team of first-aid- and CPR-certified instructors who welcome everyone into the water to learn how to swim. People cruise up and over the learning curve inside a 92-degree natural salt-chlorine pool, fully enclosed to allow lessons during the colder months and to keep rain from getting swimmers wet. Class sizes are kept small to allow for focused attention and individual improvement—private sessions are one-on-one, semiprivate sessions are one instructor with two students, and parent/tot classes are one instructor with up to six parents and children. Outside of the water, parents can watch their youngsters from a large observation area and tuckered-out swimmers can make use of the two shower areas and several changing rooms.
