Swimming Lessons at Sailfish Splash Waterpark

  • An instructor speaking with swimmers during a swim lesson

Sailfish Splash Waterpark offers swimming and water safety classes for all ages and skill levels. Certified swimming instructors conduct lessons in the water park’s 25-yard, temperature-controlled teaching and warm-up pool with depths ranging from 3 ½ feet to 6 feet.

Parents/guardians, who must accompany participants at all times, may observe the instruction from the shade of "funbrellas" on the deck or from the covered bleachers. Sailfish Splash Waterpark asks participants, parents, guardians, and spectators to note the following:

  • Aside from parent and tot classes, parents and guardians are not permitted around the enclosed pool deck during lessons.
  • Respect the activities of the instructors and other participants by remaining in the designated observation area.
  • All classes are non-refundable and do not include provisions for make-ups.
  • In the event of inclement weather, participants will learn about water safety.
