Originally geared for triathletes - our ocean swim lessons are now available as "learn to swim" for swimmers of various-levels and ability!
There is no better place than the Hawaiian waters to learn to swim!
The open water skills sessions are for swimmers or triathletes looking for 1-on-1 stroke development in the ocean.
Ages 12-36 mo. generally require a parent to assist in the swim lesson. We offer a parent & tot session just for this!
These sessions are booked monthly on Saturdays and Sundays. Your spot is held each month, and payment is made the final week of the month to lock in your following session.

Levels of Instruction
Emerging Skills: Our introduction to water class, rules and safety in the water. The focus is on building confidence in the water and gaining the trust and comfort being in the water. The swimmers will be learning bobbing, going under water, supported front and back floating, as well as pop up breathing. These are all essential skills as the athlete progresses to the next level.
Fundamental Skills: Swimmers will work on dependent and independent freestyle. Dependent, where they can perform a basic overarm front crawl for 25-30 feet with the face in the water but still needs the flotation aide. Independent, where they can perform a basic overarm front crawl for 25-30 feet with the face in the water without the a flotation aide. To progress, swimmers must be able to do independent freestyle for 25-30 feet.
Developmental Skills: The goal with this level is front and back stroke development. Swimmers will be working on gliding, front and back stroke progressions, backstroke, and begin to understand side breathing. To progress, swimmers must be able to swim backstroke for 25 feet and freestyle for 25 feet with side breathing.
Advanced Strokes: This is where all the other strokes come in! The focus is working on breast stroke and butterfly, though front and back will be included to a lesser degree. Swimmers will learn the basics and should be able to complete a 50M IM to complete this final section of instruction.
Stroke Refinement: This level looks primarily at different strokes and how to improve. Unlike other lessons, these are best done at a pool, and your coach will mostly be instructing from on-deck and not in the water.
Open Water Triathlon: This is geared for open water swimmers and triathletes. It will analyze your stroke and give you drills for sighting practice and transition tips. It is a combination of stroke refinement and triathlon training and tailored to each individual athlete.
