PADI SWIM SCHOOL IN THE BAY (45 MIN)
The core competencies for Swim School include functional life-safety water skills. The goal is not to teach swimming “strokes”, but rather to develop skills that would be useful for self-rescue and to develop a sense for how the body can move through the water. This program is setting the foundation for learning correct strokes when the students are developmentally ready.
Cost $48 per class (VAT included)
Maximum of 4 students per class (preferably with students of similar water skills)
(missed lessons or cancellations will not be refunded or rescheduled)
