Infant Swimming Lessons, and More

Your infant or child will learn life-saving aquatic survival skills in just 3-6 weeks. Little Waves Swim Academy, Maine’s premiere swim survival program, offers proven survival skills training to enable your child to swim - float - swim in the event of an accidental encounter with water. Through our hands-on, one on one approach, your child is guided through a swim program that is personalized to their age appropriate level. Our goal is to equip your child with the necessary skills to survive in water, and provide them with confidence to be an independent swimmer. Few programs are willing to teach children under the age of three; typically if they do it’s just water acclimation. We offer infant swimming instruction to children ages 6 months and up.
