Meet the Team

We get along swimmingly

At Aqua Marine Aquatics Academy we love what we do. Our team’s enthusiasm is only exceeded by their qualifications. When you climb into our swimming pool, not only are you in safe hands, but you’re in capable ones.

We’re a team, a dynamic blend of skills and experience and passion – from the smiling face that greets you in the coffee shop to the cozzie-clad instructor demonstrating ‘blowing bubbles’ in the pool to the guy who makes sure the pool is kept the perfect shade of blue. When you enrol at Aqua Marine Aquatics Academy, you can be sure that we’ll report for duty, poolside (with a smile).
