Seastar Swim Academy is dedicated to teaching individuals to swim confidently and safely.
Owner Nick is an American Red Cross certified swim instructor who offers a unique skill set that focuses on safety and utilizes his more than 15 years of behavioral training experience. Spending time in and around the water has always been an important part of his life and is something he wants to share with everyone.
Nick’s behavioral experience comes from his time training dolphins, whales, sea lions and many other aquatic animals at SeaWorld, Discovery Cove and the Florida aquarium. His lifetime around the water and his professional experience are the driving force of his belief that people of all ages should be equipped with the necessary skills to enjoy swimming and water activities in the safest way possible.
Nick and his husband Matt are happy to share their downtown Orlando pool, which is set up perfectly to teach anyone in a comfortable, clean, private setting. The pool is a heated salt water system so your eyes will not burn and the soft water is easy on skin and hair. The lake and dock are utilized in some swim lessons and are used to teach important safety topics around the water. His approach uses gentle, effective, fun approximations that build confidence and give swimmers the knowledge of how to safely swim in and exit the water. Parents are expected to stay engaged during the lesson to assist in encouraging and motivating students. Whether you are a 6 month old or a 30 year old, Nick has the skills and patience to help achieve your goals!
