The staff at Seal Swim School genuinely cares about the children, their safety and their progress. We're amazed at how many skills our 4-year-old has mastered and how comfortable she is in the water. The quality of the instructor has kept us enrolled continually for 3+ years, and we plan to keep it going! Thanks.

My son had a near drowning the week before I called Seal Swim School. On Drew's first swim lesson, I fell in love with his instructor, Krystal. She was compassionate, understanding and patient. Drew was terrified and Krystal held him close, comforted and spoke softly and calmly to him. I was overwhelmed with excitement when after a few lessons; Drew jumped in and swam to his instructor. This is possible because of the professional staff and wonderful instructors. Thank you Seal Swim School. I now have the piece of mind that if Drew falls into the pool, it won't be a near drowning but a huge accomplishment!

I have 4 children Madelyn, Hannah, Kristen and Zachary. We live in Brandon and we started at Seal Swim School back when classes were taught at Therese's backyard pool. We were thrilled to hear that Seal opened a facility in South Tampa and that the same warm and friendly faces were there to greet us at the door. Seal Swim School has been a very important part of our lives. I think back when the girls were little and watched them develop the skills that have carried over to the present. I love to watch them splashing and singing the same songs that they sang in class 7 years ago. Thank you Seal for making my children safer with a love of the water that they can enjoy forever.
Chad (5) and Michael (3) have only been at Seal Swim School for a few months and it was time well spent. They had just received a small battery operated boat for the tub so we thought we would try them out in the spa. Chad let his go and it headed for the overflow while Michael's was running in a 6 inch circle. The instant I turned my head to adjust Michael's steering, I heard the splash. Somehow Chad fully dressed and wearing shoes had fallen into the deep end of the pool. I rushed around the spa to jump in and get him out. Just as I was ready to jump in I noticed Chad had taken control and kept himself from going under a second time, so I waited to see what he would do next. He looked around and got orientated to his location and then began his Reach and Pull training. In a few strokes he was pulling himself onto the step-out and out of the pool like he had been doing it all of his life. This validated our reason for getting the boys swim lessons. Our biggest fear since they came to live with us 2 years ago was that something like this would happen and we would not be around. We want to thank Seal Swim School and especially the instructors who with great patience and professional attitude work with Chad and Michael every week.

I just wanted to say Thank you and here's why. Last weekend my daughter Anastasia (5) was at a party and was riding along with her friend in a Power wheel jeep. Her friend put the car in reverse and they went backwards into the pool. The car ended up flipped over top of them. Anastasia's first reaction was to swim to the wall and get out of the pool. I knew this is what you had taught her since day one. Thank you so much. I feel if she hadn't learned this from you, the situation could have been worse. I also wanted to say thank you for the "water safety weeks" that you did. It prepared her to swim with her cloths on which I believed helped in this situation. Again, thank you so much to Miss Erin and all of Ana's teachers.
P.S. Her friend made it out ok.
Thank You Seal Swim School! Nothing could have prepared me for the enormous joy in my heart when at 3 weeks into her session, my daughter was swimming! That's right.... SWIMMING! And now, I just can't get her to stop! She's diving for rings, using different swim strokes, making up her own water games and her confidence level is sky high. I wasted no time in enrolling her into the next session long before she had even completed her 1st session. I could not be more impressed with this school. If you are looking for a swim school, for your precious children, do yourself a favor and look no further. This small investment of your time will ensure your child a lifetime love of our Florida lifestyle.
Seal Swim School is a must for all children! Both of my boys (ages 6 and 3) learned to swim here and continue to enhance their techniques. We LOVE that we go year round no matter rain or shine. Every instructor has been professional and wonderful to my children! Seal Swim School is hands down the best swim school in the Tampa Bay area!
