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!

My husband and I are so glad we selected your company for swim lessons for our daughters. When I first called, all of my questions were answered in detail and I was provided additional helpful information. We were quickly matched with a great swim instructor, Maddie. She was amazing with our kids. Our 2 year old now knows basic swim techniques as well as survival techniques such as how to grab on to the wall and monkey crawl to the stairs. She has learned how to jump in and hold her breath and close her eyes. Our 1 year old learned age appropriate techniques (she started at 9 months). I am very happy with how our kids have progressed with the lessons.

Sunsational swim school is a great deal. What's better than having a personal swim instructor teach your kids in your own pool? our teacher, Catherine, was excellent. Very patient and fun. The kids were excited every day for their lesson and could not wait for her to come. I would recommend sunsational to anyone wanting to teach pool safety and swimming in their own home.

I had a great experience taking lessons from Catherine. She covered most of the strokes and skills in a month's time (3 hours a week) and taught them in an effective manner. I have learned so much in a short period of time thanks to her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone taking swim lessons. thanks, Sunsational

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!.
