Private Swim Lessons in Santa Monica , CA

Driving kids all over Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica! 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 Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica. 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 Santa Monica swim lessons today and see the Sunsational difference for yourself?

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Santa Monica

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 Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica, whether it's down the street or just outside your back door.

Sunsational Client Reviews

I am adult 32 year male . I have never taken swim lessons in my life and never knew proper swimming . I signed up for 10 classes for 40 min each with Sandra . By 6th class i was able to do underwater swim . She has been an amazing guide correctly spotting my mistakes and also understanding how my body reacts for certain strokes . Like back stroke because of heavy muscle in shoulders i was not able to do it .I will recommend to any body specially adult who have not taken swimming classes before .
I have used Sunsational Swim School once or twice a week for the past nine weeks. The instructor is very knowledgeable, but I feel that there is only so much she can teach. I think with swimming, you have to just go out there and do it, so I'm not sure if it's the instructor's fault. She is late sometimes, but it's not a big deal. She's very flexible, and will make up for the time. I would definitely use her again. They will take you out in the ocean if possible!
I contacted Sunsational Swim School to find a private swim teacher for my 4 year old son. He has some behavioral challenges so I was worried about how he would do. Before starting classes at home in our pool he wouldn't put his face in the water and hated water on his head. Now he jumps in and swims, face totally in the water. He loves to dive for dive sticks and loves his instructor KC. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for great private instruction.
