Aloha families! While some things at Goldfish will look different in the days ahead, rest assured that our heart and mission remain the same. No matter what obstacles the coronavirus has thrown in our lane, we will just keep swimming...Safer. Stronger. TogetherTM.

Please read on for the changes we’ve implemented to create a safe environment and a Golden Experience for everyone in our facility. Mahalo!

Swim Lessons

90-Degree Family Fun All Year Long

If you're looking for something out of the ordinary to do as a family, try our fun Family Swim. Family Swim is a great way for children and their families to spend an afternoon or evening together in our shiver-free 90-degree pool. Even better, children can put into practice everything they've learned from their swim lessons.

If you're new to Goldfish, Family Swim is a great way to get a taste of our experience with the whole family!

Hear From Happy Parents

  • Goldfish Swim School Testimonial Image - 1
    Our 3 year old is thriving in his lessons at Goldfish! I wasn’t sure how he would do with swim lessons because he tends to be cautious and was apprehensive going in the first time, but the instructors and staff are so friendly and inviting and they put him right at ease. Within minutes he was in the water and smiling throughout his lesson! He has so much fun here and I love that he’s learning such valuable water safety skills in the process. After exploring other options and winding up disappointed with the offerings in the area, my family is so thankful to now have Goldfish in our community! I cannot recommend them enough to anyone looking for high quality swim lessons for their kids!

  • Goldfish Swim School Testimonial Image - 2
    We joined Goldfish when it first opened in February. We fell in love with the facility. Its a little island paradise with kids in mind. They have gone above and beyond to make the experience truly unforgettable. We did the mommy and me class for a few months. It allowed me to learn new skills that I was able to use in our own pool at home. It was also a great bonding experience with my little one. We recently transitioned to the 3 year old class. The entire staff was exceptionally helpful and supportive during the transaction. My son loves going to goldfish. It truly is a great place for kids!!
