Private Swim Lessons in San Marcos , CA

Driving kids all over San Marcos for swim lessons can be aggravating: between struggling to get through traffic to get there on time and classes scheduled at the least convenient possible time, maybe you've asked yourself 'Is it worth it?'

The good news? There's a better, faster, less stressful way to help everyone in your family be more confident in the water: private swimming lessons with a Sunsational Swim instructor in San Marcos! When you choose us as your swim school, we bring personalized lessons to your club, community pool, or even your own backyard.

Everyone knows that kids learn better when they have one-on-one attention, so it's no surprise if you haven't been impressed by the results from your child's crowded group lessons at the public pool. And, if you are a reluctant adult that's finally brave enough to learn to swim, it's much less nerve-wracking to give it a try for the first time in the comfort and privacy of your San Marcos home—not next to a class of infants and toddlers who seem ready to compete in the Olympics!

From start to finish, we make learning to swim convenient, cost-effective, and confidence-building. To get started, enter your zip code and answer a few brief registration questions, and we'll match you with a top-notch swim teacher who will come to you: any time of day, anywhere in San Marcos. From early-morning sessions to prepare for a military swim test, to weekday afternoons after school to work on stroke technique for a swim team tryout, there's no schedule that our Sunsational instructors can't accommodate.

Does it sound too good to be true? It's not—and because we're so sure we'll deliver the results you want, you can take advantage of our Sunsational Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids 3 and up), if your swimmer is still unable to turn around and reach the wall after our twelve-lesson package. Why not sign up for San Marcos swim lessons today and see the Sunsational difference for yourself?

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in San Marcos

Our Focus: Water Safety

Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee emphasizes each student's ability to turn around and swim back to the wall after an unintentional fall into the pool. Swimmers throughout San Marcos have learned to be safer in their own backyards with Sunsational's private swimming lessons, learning these critical skills in the comfort of home swimming pools.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Private swim lessons scheduled at the time that works best for YOU are the ultimate in stress-free swimming in the greater San Marcos area. Whether you have multiple kids that you want to schedule back-to-back or an adult in the family that needs lessons on their lunch break, our instructors can accommodate your calendar!

Individualized Lesson Planning

We understand that every swimmer brings a different set of skills and challenges to the water, so our personalized lessons help each student to conquer their fears and make real progress in their water safety skills. Not only do our infant and toddler classes help even the youngest swimmers to be able to turn around and get to the side of the pool, but our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids ages 3 and up) provides up to four extra lessons at no charge if your swimmer hasn't mastered our “Sunsational Swim Sequence” by the 12th class.

Which Pool? You Decide!

Our Sunsational instructors will work with you at your favorite pool in San Marcos, whether it's down the street or just outside your back door.

Zoe has been both patient and persistent with our fearful kindergartener to get him comfortable with swimming. Every week she gets him to do something new; this week it was floating on his back. He adores her and for the first time he looks forward to getting in the pool. We are big fans!
Katie Blair was a fantastic swim instructor for our two kids - fun, friendly, professional. The kids loved her and learned a ton. Would definitely recommend.
When our daughters swim school was canceled due to the pandemic we searched for private swim lessons. We were matched with Megan & got started right away. Our daughter adores Megan, she is kind, patient, skilled, and we are only 1/2 way through our package & we can already see major progress! We are SO happy with our choice to go with Sunsational Swim school!!
Tristan is an incredible swim teacher. I can say this easily as I have had several. He is the perfect combination of calm, encouraging and knowledgeable. He created a very comfortable atmosphere to learn and his enthusiasm and positivity where genuine. He is incredibly patient and that was definitely the reason I got to learn as much from him as I did. :)
We had a wonderful experience this month with James as our instructor for 3 kids, ages 6, 4, and 3. We booked the 12 lesson package with the Learn-to-Swim guarantee because our goal was to get them water safe by the end of the lessons. James was really great with all 3 kids and had them progressing by the time our lessons were over. My 4 year old went from "I'm not going to put my face in the water" on Day 1 to wearing her goggles, jumping into the water by herself, and swimming back to the wall sometime in the last 6 lessons! We were happy with the progress all 3 kids made and highly recommend James!
Kailey was absolutely amazing! My 18 month old made good progress despite being stubborn! She was very sweet and did everything to make her comfortable and learn! Our two year old neighbor thrived during the lessons and every day would ask if today was a swim lesson day with Miss Kailey. Her skills by the end of the lessons had everyone impressed! Definitely recommend Kailey and excited to/hope to continue next summer with her!
Our instructor was Kimberly and we absolutely loved her! Our 3 year old enjoyed his swim lessons and is super comfortable in the water, swimming and getting in and out the pool. Kimberly has a great approach for such group age and my son couldn't wait to swim with his friend Kim! I highly recommend Kimberly for your child's swim classes.

KIMBERLY D. has been a wonderful instructor to work with. She corresponds with me frequently, is easy to schedule lessons with, and, is always on time. We have had a few schedule changes and KIMBERLY has accommodated us very well. Kimberly is persistent, kind, patient, entertaining and a fabulous teacher. She is teaching our "19 month old" to be water safe, and, after 6 lessons the concept of holding onto the coping of the pool and moving sideways to the steps or climb out of the pool on her own is sinking in. Plus, I can't say enough about Sunsational Swim School, so easy to work with, great staff!!!!! Thank you Sunsational for sending us KIMBERLY!!!!! You truly are LIFE SAVER
Kailey was a great instructor to our Benjamin. We had lessons ahead of a family trip and it gave him the confidence we were hoping for to make all the pool and beaches we visited a fun and enjoyable experience. He is now almost fully able to swim by himself and just turned 3. We will continue with the lessons as Kailey makes it fun while encouraging the development we would expect from professional lessons. Thanks!
