Swimming Lessons

Learn to Swim on Koh Tao

Take some swimming lessons on Koh Tao to get the most out of your stay!

As an island surrounded by clear blue waters and colourful coral reefs, it stands to reason that most Koh Tao visitors want to explore in the water as well as on land. Snorkel tours and scuba diving trips and courses are readily available. But of course, do you need to have a basic level of swimming comfort to take part.

Not as comfortable in the water as you want to be? Then take some snorkelling or swimming lessons on Koh Tao with Splashdance’n’Swim. 

Splashdance’n’Swim are the original and top-rated swimming school on the island. Offering lessons for adults and children alike, the friendly and professional team can help you build up your confidence in the water and/or develop new techniques. 

Swimming lessons are available for all ages and abilities, and you can choose from private, semi-private or group sessions. The Splashdance’n’Swim instructors are all English speaking and are qualified and accredited to western standards. They offer a small groups guarantee and a mobile service. So if you have your own villa or resort pool, you can take your swimming lessons on-site. Swimming and snorkelling lessons in the ocean are also available.
