Children’s Swim Lessons


Evolve has spent countless hours in the water with their children, Ani and Cape.
They are professional freedivers/freediving instructors who travel aboard their sailing vessel, Jade. Ani and Cape are an integral part of every adventure.  Now, Evolve would love the opportunity to share our experiences and in-water successes with you and your child through our swim lessons!  Let us help your child develop a love for the water.  Let us encourage your child to become competent in the water in order to further enjoy the aquatic environment.  Not to mention gain skills that may save his/her life.

Prerequisites:
There are no prerequisites for our children’s swimming classes.  Each caretaker will be given a short questionnaire via email or telephone conversation so Evolve can garner information about the child’s experience and comfort levels in the water.

The first class will be used as an introductory session in which Evolve and the child meet and Evolve evaluates the child’s skill level in person in order to better develop a personalized learning plan.

Children of all ages who are ready to develop water comfort and swimming skills
