While I was at Type-A Con my husband and son went to Aquatica in Orlando to learn about their swimming lessons and to enjoy a day at the water park. I think it is great for a water park to offer affordable swimming lessons with Red Cross Certified instructors right in the park. It gets families in the gates that may not have come and it teaches children of all ages valuable skills in a safe and fun environment. The swimming lessons are great for locals but are also a great addition for vacationing families who want their kids to become better swimmers while on vacation.
Here is Ron’s brief report:
My son and I were invited to Sea World Orlando’s Aquatica water park this last week. They are now giving swimming lessons at the park for $45 for passholders and $50 for the general public. You will receive 5 lessons that last 45 minutes each. The classes are limited to 6 students and you will always have the same teacher. You have the option to take the 5 lessons either consecutive Monday through Friday or for 5 Saturdays and there is a graduation at the end. Aquatica has a great environment for teaching and making it a fun experience.
Aquatica offers preschool aquatics, parent & child aquatics and Levels 1-5 of the Red Cross Learn to Swim program. To register for swimming lessons at Aquatica visit AquaticabySeaWorld.com.
Disclosure: Aquatica invited my family to the park for the day to inform us about the swimming lessons. All opinions are 100% ours.
