We were more than impressed with Head Above Water’s atmosphere, services and the swim instructor. From the moment we inquired with the company, the owner Kate reached out immediately upon my inquiries and was available to answer questions we had. When we arrived for your first lesson we found the pool/area to be clean and beautiful. Our 2 year old's instructor made her feel safe and made it fun! We couldn’t have been more pleased!

The service is excellent and highly attentive to the customer. I got responses right away and easily accessible. My swim instructor is very professional and extremely kind and knows how to work with me and my level of experience. I would strongly recommend this to anyone!

Signing up for swim lessons with HAW was so easy! Made a phone call, spoke directly with the owner and had our swim schedule locked in by the end of the day! So simple and super easy! And then once we started our lessons, by just the second class my son Liam went from not being able to put his face in the water to blowing bubbles under water and swimming a short distance by himself! Super happy with everything!!!

Fun and Educational

We are so happy with Head Above Water!! Kate, the owner is so professional and has been so proactive during this difficult time of COVID-19. Our swim instructor, Chloe, is amazing and both of my children are learning so much in just a few lessons. The lessons are structured, yet fun and the kids don't want to leave. Thank you for doing what you're doing! You are amazing!!!

...[the instructor] has been wonderful! He was patient when my daughter was resistant, accommodating when it came time to have a parent join to assist with her comfort, and engaging in a way that is respectful, fun, and motivating. My daughter is making outstanding progress!

Our family had a wonderful experience with Head Above Water this summer. Our swim instructor has taken my daughter from total beginner to being able to safely keep herself afloat and get to the side, among some other basic skills. The teacher's patience, creative and fun approach to teaching ensured that my daughter was excited for every lesson and now she loves the water. We are so appreciative!"

All Ages

As an adult, learning to swim seemed quite daunting. The office staff was very professional during the sign-up process. I received the answers to my questions and was able to sign up for my first class within minutes. When I arrived at the location, my first impression of the pool and seating area was that it’s very clean and professional. Then meeting my coach, it took a matter of minutes to feel at ease. I appreciated that my instructor made sure I could learn at a pace I was comfortable with.

Head Above Water was a terrific experience for our 17-month-old. Weekly Mommy and Me lessons at our home with friends and other children his age, allowed him to get used to the pool, be with his peers, and have a great time with the water toddler program.

When my kids started, my 4 year old daughter wouldn’t wash her hair in the bath without crying. After the first lesson, our teacher Andrew instilled such knowledge and confidence that you would have guessed she grew up with water in her face. This company has provided confidence in a very important area of life, Water safety! These guys are the best!!!"
