  Swim Instruction

Have you ever thought to yourself...

I am tired of working so hard at going so SLOW! Can you help me swim faster?

In the open-water, I swim off-course and seem to be always out of breath. Can you help?

I'd like to get in better shape and want to swim, but I am not very good.

A private or semi-private session with Karlyn may be just what you need

Whether you are a BEGINNER, a multi-sport athlete or have been a competitive swimmer for years… we can help you be a better swimmer and can teach you how to swim faster with less effort.

Visitors to the Big Island...get more than just a tan on your vacation

All sessions are customized to meet your needs and tailored to your learning style.

Endless Pool Sessions...SEE yourself swim, while you swim, while we video you! Get instant feedback from the TWO MIRRORS in the pool that will help you make changes even faster since you can see what you are doing in real-time! It’s fun, too. Hours are very flexible since the pool is at our house and is open 24/7. Cost for the initial 90-min session is $125 and includes a mini-swim clinic followed by about 60- minutes of water time with video analysis. Follow up sessions are 1 hour and cost $95
