The National Sea Rescue Institute’s (NSRI) Survival Swimming lessons have returned to the Sea Point Pavilion Municipal Swimming Pool after an extended winter break.

As we jump into the warmer season, our time spent in and around water increases, making it crucial to learn the basic skills of how to stay afloat should you find yourself in difficulty in the water. These lessons are important lifesaving skills that everyone should learn.

We also have a new location this year, the Muizenberg Municipal Swimming Pool which will also be hosting its own Survival Swimming lessons. The Survival Swimming program will kick off in time for the 2022 summer season, providing invaluable skills to the patrons of these swimming pools.

The NSRI’s volunteer Survival Swimming Instructors will be teaching adults and children the 4 basic skills of Survival Swimming; learning breath control, orientation, floating, and moving through water in the pool.

These FREE lessons will commence on Saturdays only, from 29 October to 3 December 2022 and again from 21 January to 4 March 2023, at the Sea Point Pavilion. The Muizenberg Municipal pool’s lesson will commence from 12 November to 15 December 2022 and again from 15 January to 4 March 2023.

Here is a list of additional sites in and around the Western Cape where you can do survival swimming lessons:
