Sailfish Splash Waterpark offers swimming and water safety classes and programs for all ages and skill levels. Certified swimming instructors conduct lessons free from disruption and interference in the water park’s 25-yard, temperature-controlled teaching and warm-up pool with depths ranging from 3 ½ feet to 6 feet.
Parents/guardians, who must accompany participants at all times, may observe the instruction from the shade of "funbrellas" on the deck or from the covered bleachers. Sailfish Splash Waterpark asks participants, parents, guardians, and spectators to note the following:
- Respect the activities of the instructors and other participants by remaining in the designated observation areas away from the pool.
- All classes are non-refundable and do not include provisions for make-ups.
- Participants will learn about water safety during inclement weather.
