Best swim company I’ve ever worked with. My timid unconfident swimmers blossomed into confident and brave fish under the instruction of kind, patient and attentive staff. Can’t speak highly enough!

We were planning a trip to Orlando this year, so we signed [our daughters] up with the British Swim School in early June so they would feel more confident in the water. They have progressed so much in less than 6 months. These two were unstoppable and swam 2-3 hours almost every day for 8 days. Thank you for having such a great team of instructors. Last year, they were terrified of the water. This year, they were swimming like pros! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
