Learn to Swim

We offer quality Learn to Swim programmes at both Alpine Aqualand and Wanaka Recreation Centre, providing a positive, comfortable environment for learning the life skill of swimming and water safety.


Our instructors have both nationally and internationally recognised qualifications, including the Assistant Swim Teacher Award (ASTA) from Swimming NZ, the National Swim Ed Certificate, the National Pool Lifeguard Award or AUSTSWIM Australia's Teacher Licences.


We have an easy, hassle-free system where your booking will automatically rollover to the next term and the class level adjusted according to your child's current ability.

Lessons start from as little as $11.50 each, with family discounts and multi-lesson discounts available.

We endeavour to be flexible with lesson times and work around your family's needs, however please be aware this is not always possible.
