About Us

Award Winning Swim Tangaroa Team

From 5 months through to 14 years old, we guarantee there is a lesson for every child.
Our program runs 7 days a week for 48 weeks over the year, only having a break over the Christmas and New Year period.

Easy and Affordable

With weekly payment, swimming lessons are more affordable and can be easily managed with our direct debit system.

Ongoing Enrolment

Preventing the need to re-enrol each term we aim to offer you your preferred lesson slot. Simply contact us and discuss what options best suit everyone!


Our teachers aim to help our students gain the confidence they need when they are in or around water. These skills allow children to float, fully submerge and eventually swim full lengths unaided.

Prior notification and presentation of a medical certificate for the missed lesson is ideal, however we do understand that illnesses can often pop up out of the blue.

Please let us know as soon as possible if your child is unable to attend their lesson so arrangements for catch-up lessons can be made.
