Mermaids and Pirates Swim Lessons
At Mermaid Cove Swim School our experienced instructors use a gentle, constructive swim-float-swim method that focuses on the individual needs of each child.

We are able to work with special needs children as well as advanced swimmer and adults.  We will customize a program to meet your child's and family's needs. Our warm, salt water pool runs year round. So dive in and learn to swim at the Mermaid Cove!
