Why People Love Being a Part of The Blue Buoy Swim School Family

“Best Swim School in the OC!”

I don’t buy or sign up for anything without researching, reading reviews or recommendations. Blue Buoy was recommended by a few parents and so far, we’ve been happy with the results. Everywhere we swim, people admire on how well our 3 1/2 year old swims. The pools are warm all year round and their staff are very friendly. We’ve researched other swim schools in the area, private instructors, etc., but Blue Buoy is worth every penny we habe spent on our boys.

Our Temperature Controlled Swimming Pools

We can accommodate all your needs because we have two pools specifically designed for optimum instruction.

Our small pool is designed with young swimmers in mind. It has large steps, shallow water, and we enclose it for winter comfort.

The large pool is used by advanced little ones and older age groups who require more space. It also provides plenty of room for our weekend swim meets and adult classes. Both pools are bathtub warm.(90°-93°)

Thank you Blue Buoy!

“Blue Buoy has been in my life for over three decades. I learned how to swim at Blue Buoy, and now my two kids are learning at the same place! We even travel from Seal Beach to have Ms. Stacy teach them to swim! Blue Buoy offers such a warm and friendly environment. Every teacher is great, and the office staff is always so helpful and accommodating. Thank you Blue Buoy!”
