Ocean 101

Who Takes Ocean 101?

When your confidence and curiosity lead you to the ocean, this course provides you with the needed lowdown. You’re an Essentials 1 class graduate, able to float, unfloat, and roll over peacefully to be eligible.

You’d like to feel safe in the ocean. You’ll get answers to your biggest basic questions in this introductory course, the first step. Total confidence in varied ocean environments begins here.

What Is the Course?

Learn in a safe, warm, friendly setting about salt water, how to get in when there are breakers, learn about the bottom, how the water moves, what to do about currents and waves and how to be in your body in the ocean.

Take your pool skills into the sea. Float, reverse, swim, play, and BE!

Learn to use noodles, ocean toys, and life jackets in the 1st Circle. Swim out to the buoy if it sounds like fun…with or without a lifejacket.
