Private Swim Lessons in Tampa , FL

If you look around the greater Tampa area, what do you see? Water! From Adventure Island near Busch Gardens to the top-rated Clearwater Beach just across the bay, the opportunities to make a splash and have fun are virtually endless. Here in the Sunshine State, learning to be safe in and around water is one of the most critical skills you can give a child.

At Sunsational Swim School, we offer private swim lessons throughout the Tampa area that will help learners of any age—from infant to adult!—master the skills needed to be safe in the water, whether in their own backyard or at the neighborhood swimming pool.

When you’re matched with a Sunsational swim teacher in Tampa, you’ll quickly see the difference between crowded, impersonal group swimming classes at the local pool and our personalized, highly effective private swimming lessons. Your swimmer will make progress in a matter of weeks, not months or years, and our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that you can trust that your child will demonstrate significant progress in our program—or we’ll provide up to four free lessons to help them perform our “Sunsational Safety Sequence.”

Already know how to swim but not sure how to take your strokes to the next level? If you or your child are hoping to swim competitively for the Greater Tampa Swim Association (GTSA) or one of the many other excellent teams in the area, we have private lessons available with current and former swim coaches who can improve your stroke mechanics and get you racing.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Tampa

Our Priority Is Water Safety

Because most drownings happen when a child is unable to exit the water safely after a fall into the pool, our Tampa swim lessons focus on teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the wall.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Want to schedule a toddler lesson before naptime? Absolutely! How about an afternoon class for an adult that’s been afraid of the water for years? Yes! Whatever timeframe fits your schedule is a perfect time for a Sunsational Swim lesson.

Lesson Plans Unique to You

No two swimmers are the same, so our teachers use a gentle, progressive approach to help every swimmer overcome any fears of the water and quickly learn the skills needed to be safe. We’re so confident in our approach that we offer our exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for ages 3 and up (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

You’ve got a busy life! Who needs to drive across Tampa to crowded swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim instructor can bring a private swim class to your home or favorite community pool?

My 9 year old was afraid of water and we couldn't get him to learn swimming with 2 other schools. He has been learning swimming from Jennifer and within 10 days, he has completely transformed and loves water/swimming now. We can't thank you enough for the same
Olivia has been amazing! My daughter loves her and looks forward to her lessons. My daughter is confident when she goes into the water now and I feel confident in her ability to stay safe. An amazing instructor. Highly recommend!
Lauren is a wonderful swimming instructor. She is patient and kind and has made the lessons fun for my 4 year old son. After taking 12 lessons my son can swim underwater, float and swim above water. I did the class Monday - Thursday.
Javed was excellent with my 2 year old twins! They were afraid of the water and by the end of the session they were very comfortable and able to put their heads under without screaming. He was really kind and patient. I definitely recommend Javed and Sunsational Swim
I’m so happy with our instructor Kristin Rankin. She is perfect for my daughter who adores her. She is patient and fun and most importantly I know she puts my daughter's safety first. Thank you!
My daughter's instructor Robin is wonderful, I cannot say enough about how much fun it is for my daughter to learn to swim. Sunsational Swim School offers a great and very convenient program. I was searching for a while for a good swimming instructor for my daughter until I came across Sunsational, and once they paired me with Robin, she was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Sunsational!
Amanda has been such a super swim instructor. She is very patient with our five-year-old daughter and always shows up on time. My daughter looks forward so much to each lesson that she marks each one on her on the calendar
Olivia had been an excellent teacher for my 4 yr old great grandson! Very patient and he loves her. Olivia definitely understands toddlers. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in lessons.
Kirk has been great with our 2.5 yo son. He's so patient and really understands what it takes to communicate with a child his age. It's been a great experience to watch my son learn and experience new things in the water with his instructor.
