Swim School

Our Programs

We believe swimming is a skill for life. Our programs cater for all ages and abilities, from 6 months old to adults, and all levels in between!

Dolphins Swim School offers a combination of water familiarisation and safety skills in conjunction with efficient stroke development. We maintain small class sizes to ensure each participant gets the individual attention they require to maximise their aquatic education experience and ongoing development.
