Welcome to Making Waves Swim School

Making Waves Swim School has adopted the PADI/SAI curriculum of teaching methods which caters for babies to adult beginners, stroke school as well as children with cognitive and physical challenges.


The curriculum allows swimmers to develop at their own pace; each course contains age-appropriate activities that focus on developing core aquatic competencies that every pe4rson needs to learn in order to be proficient and safe in the water.

The core competencies provide the foundation that will enable students to develop correct swimming stroke techniques by progressing through a series of benchmark skills set out in the curriculum.


For each course, the level of skill development is identified by colour coding progressions.  Swimmers move through the colour stages once the benchmark safety and swimming skill for hat colour has been learnt.  The swimmers progress is plotted in their personal record book which makes it easy for parents to see how their child is progressing.


Lessons are given in and indoor heated swimming pool at Indigo Scuba Dive Centre in Gordon’s Bay..


Saturday lessons are offered between 08h00 and 13h00 to accommodate working moms and dads. Adult lessons are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 18h15.
