Is there a swim test?
No, there is no swim test required in order to participate. You are not required to be a strong swimmer to participate because we start you off in shallow water with an instructor at your side. Our staff determines swimming ability and ocean competence on an individual basis. Participants always work at their own pace and learn new skills in a safe and supportive environment.
Do I need to bring my own equipment?
We provide all the equipment. You don't need to bring a board or wetsuit. If you have a board or wetsuit already and would like to bring it along that's no problem. Our staff can help determine if it's right for you.
