What we do

Hermanus Aqua Kids provide the perfect environment to learn to swim, with swimming lessons for ages 7 months onwards. We offer private and group lessons at a maximum of 3:1 ratio in our heated, indoor pool and strive to teach not only water safety, but also proper swim technique. A lot of focus is set on having fun with engaging lessons and we work hard to gain your child's trust and make them feel comfortable and confident. We specialise in teaching children the skills they will need for a lifetime of water safety and enjoyment. Children are also taught more advanced swimming techniques as they become ready. We are also passionate about getting the whole family involved and are very excited when the parents get in the pool.

The pool

We have an indoor pool that has been designed specifically for learn to swim. It is 7 metres x 3 metres and one depth throughout. It is heated to between 30 and 34 degrees and can be used for swimming lessons year round.

Our programmes

  • Water Babies
  • Learn to Swim (Kids & Adults)
  • Stroke Correction
  • Advanced courses (offered during school holidays)
  • Aqua Aerobics

Our babies start their classes anywhere from age 7 months and go all the way to toddlerhood building a platform for the “Learn to Swim” program. Toddlers that join us at a little later also fall within the “Learn to Swim” program. The Stroke Correction program is aimed at making improvements to children that are already familiar with swimming techniques.
