Swimming Safari is the Industry Leader in swimming instruction in Northeast Florida. Our program has taught thousands of children to swim and be safe. Swimming Safari is dedicated in making a difference in the lives of children as well as adults, and their families.
Swimming Safari Swim Schools’ Comprehensive Curriculum with 15 different levels designed to meet the needs of every student. With in each level we have included several milestones that each child will get to complete. Every time a level is achieved, a child is rewarded. It starts from the very littlest and progresses in small steps to the very best. We aim to have our swimmers unsurpassed; that is why we teach, when they are ready, Olympian strokes.
Since 2004, Swimming Safari has taught throughout Jacksonville and Northeast Florida. All our instructors are trained for over 30 hours in and out of the water, including written exams, in the pool exams and have earned their American Red Cross CPR and First Aid. Our instructors are all experienced, affectionate and caring specialists who have the passion for teaching swimming and helping to make sure our children are safe.
We specialize in small group instruction (4:1 ratio), private (1:1) and semi-private lessons (2:1). Keeping our classes small enables our instructors to work individually with each child. Working in small classes helps students to learn from each other.
We demonstrate it every day by teaching a young child to swim appropriately or a teenager about swimming safety and even an adult who wants to make their time or technique a little better or just learn the basics. We do it all! We understand swimming completely because that’s the only thing we do! We are the “Specialists” in Swim Instruction.
Whether it’s a 6-month-old baby, a 7 year-old who’s never been near the water or a 3 year-old that loves jumping in already, Swimming Safari has the tools and the methodology to work with them perfectly.
Please ask others, they are the best resource to find a program that is good. We have taught many of the neighborhood children in Jacksonville, and are very proud of their accomplishments. Some include children of Jaguar players, TV personalities, and Olympian Gold medalists.

What could be better than to learn to enjoy life with your children in the beautiful water, whether it is in the lake, river, ocean or a pool? We strive to know you and your child. Trust is important when learning to swim. Over the years, we have developed many wonderful friendships!
A friend recommended Swimming Safari to me. At first, I was skeptical about the price and drive time from my house. But it is SO worth it. We started my daughter late, and she wasn't confident around the water. She liked it, but didn't even want her face wet. The first few weeks were slow going, but especially after she moved up, she has blossomed. She just seems to be shooting through the new requirements. And I can watch her face during class, and I see the confidence and fun. She's like a completely different child after a month and a half. It's money very well spent. I am very proud of her, and we are very happy with Swimming Safari. I highly recommend.Sara
