Private Swim Lessons in South Florida , FL

Look at a map of the greater South Florida area, and what do you see? Water! From Cooper City to Palmetto Bay, there’s virtually no end to the possibilities for making a splash and having fun. Learning water safety is one of the most important skills you can give a child, especially in the Sunshine State.

Working with a Sunsational swim teacher in South Florida, you’ll be amazed at the difference between the local pool’s crowded, impersonal classes and our effective, individualized private swimming lessons. Ready to see progress in weeks, not months or years? Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that your swimmer will quickly show measurable improvement in our program. If, after the lesson package, your child (ages 3 and up) is unable to swim unassisted to the side of the pool (from a simulated fall), we offer up to four additional lessons for free until they can.

We offer private swim lessons throughout the South Florida area for learners of any age—infant to adult!—helping them master water safety skills, gaining confidence to swim in their own pool or maybe even at Rapids Water Park!

Additionally, if you or your child are thinking of swimming competitively with the Swim Fort Lauderdale team or any of the other accomplished aquatic clubs in South Florida, Sunsational Swim’s private lessons with current and former swim coaches will improve your stroke mechanics and help you butterfly, freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke your way to victory.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in South Florida

Sunsational’s Priority Is Water Safety

Our South Florida swim lessons focus on teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the wall—because many drownings occur when a child does not know how exit the pool safely after falling into the water.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

We all know that swim classes at naptime are not a good idea. With Sunsational, any time that fits your schedule is a great time for a lesson. Would you like an after-work session for an adult that has decided to conquer their fears and get in the water? We do that too!

Lesson Plans Unique to You

Our swim instructors use an individualized, gentle approach to help each swimmer overcome fears and learn all of the water skills needed to be safe. We’re so sure that swimmers will make quick progress that we offer an exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for students 3 and older (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

With work, school, sports, and more, your family is busy! Why make a drive from one South Florida suburb to another for crowded swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim teacher can bring a private class right to you?

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
Thank you, Marianela for the wonderful lessons! We did a class with our 6mo son (until he was about 10 mo) that got him comfortable in the pool, going underwater, and other basics. Marinela was a great teacher and great with the baby!

Marianela Marquina is the best swim instructor ever! She was amazing with my 2 yr old daughter! I decided to purchase private lessons during the pandemic because I did not want my daughter around a large group of parents and kids. She was worth every penny. My daughter loves the water and learned so many safety lessons. She is excellent

I searched for a while before settling for Sunsational and I'm glad I picked them! My baby, along with two friends, had their first swim lessons with Marianela Marquina and she was just beyond amazing! Sunsational matched us with her and after that, we had all our communication directly with Nela who was ALWAYS super friendly, accommodating and generally had the best attitude. Our babies all felt comfortable with her and so did the parents! 10/10 would recommend.

Marianela (Nela) Marquina, excellent in all aspects. Both of my kids were in love with her. My 1-year-old was very scared and within days she learned to let go and trust Marianela. My 3 year old loves her, and really enjoyed his time with her. Thank You, Marianela for the amazing time with my kids and your professionalism.

No words can express how happy we were with Marianela Marquina. My grandson (1 1/2 years) loves water, now even more. He is swimming with such enthusiasm it's hard to get him out of the pool. We now have a new addition and can't wait to get him started with Nela!

Marianela has been a great instructor. She's been patient with the girls, is on time, and always has a smile. My 6 and 4-year-old aren't always the best listeners and she takes it all in stride. I prod the girls, but she is always on top of it and works to get the best out of them.
Customer Review On yelp
Because of the pandemic, we decided to do private swim lessons in my pool! Nela is great!!! Marianela Marquina is so patient and focused with a plethora of information for parents and grandparents. Nela was here 3 times a week all summer and my grandson was loving his lessons. Now we have a new addition and looking forward to getting him started with Nela soon as the water warms up.
Over there summer we had instructor Marianela (Nela) Marquina, teach our little Lorenzo swimming lessons. I was blown away by how prepared she was. She came equipped with toys and patience. Lorenzo never had an issue with water, as a matter of fact he has an affinity for water, which is the reason why we wanted to give him lessons. By the end of our time with Nela, Lorenzo was closing his mouth and holding his breath underwater, and successfully reaching the walls of the pool. We were thoroughly impressed with his progress with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to show their babies the first lessons of swimming.
