Dedicated to Teaching Families

to Be Safer Around the Water

We have been teaching South Florida to swim since 1994.
We offer swimming instruction for all ages, infants through school age.

Learn to swim


Our immediate goal is that every child can jump into a body of water (or fall in) and return to the wall unassisted. We then work on extended swimming with rollovers to get a breath. Once a child is ready we continue this progression into stroke development. And most importantly, we all have fun while completing each of these goals.

Our Mission



The mission of Ocaquatics Swim School is to teach families to love swimming and to become safer, more comfortable and more responsible around the water.

  • We believe swimming is a necessary life skill and an important part of any water safety program.

  • We provide high quality swimming instruction by our friendly, energetic, and enthusiastic team.

  • We continuously update and improve our teaching methods.

  • We support water safety education in the community.


Water Safety Tips

Statistics continue to indicate that drowning is still the leading cause of death in children under the age of 5 in Florida. Parent education about water safety is very important in preventing this. Our business is not only teaching swimming, but also teaching your child and family to be SAFER around the water.


Ocaquatics has adopted the Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation's message and program of the Safer 3. The main concept of the SAFER 3 is based on the definition of the word "Safe." Safe means that you are free from risk or danger which is never true when it comes to water safety. The letter "R" in the word SAFER reminds us that there is always risk when in, on or around water. Protect your family by following the SAFER 3:


SAFER WATER: Protect all sources of water so that a child does not have the opportunity to gain unsupervised access. Fence your pool and lock your gate.


SAFER KIDS: Constant adult supervision is key to preventing accidents around the water. Always assign a designated Water Watcher. In addition, you should teach your kids to swim. And remember, a good swimming program will always teach safer behaviors for children and families around the pool.


SAFER RESPONSE: Would you know what to do in an emergency situation. If you had to, could you perform CPR on a loved one? Learn CPR and keep a phone and rescue equipment by your backyard pool at all times.

Our Giving

See what IMPACT we can make together!


Ocaquatics is proud to be a partner of, a social enterprise and non-profit organization with a mission to create a world that is full of giving. 


For every swimming lesson that Ocaquatics teaches, we donate one day of water. Each time your child attends their swimming lesson you help to donate a day of water to someone in need. 

663 million people in the world live without clean water.

That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick. Access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids.
