All students stay at this condo resort in exchange for use of the pool. As of June 25, the hotel is completely booked but a unit in a sister property is available within walking distance of Jamaica Royale.
Register for class. We will help you get the room. Reserve your room as soon as possible.

We recommend that you stay for 7 nights, Saturday to Saturday. It gives you an equal chance to reserve a unit as someone competing for the same unit who wants the preferred 7 night booking. Don’t lose out to those reserving for 7 nights. A full week makes your trip sane: time to find restaurants and groceries and see our famous beach at the beginning; and time to rest and take another swim before you leave on Saturday rather than rushing Thursday night and Friday. You will learn more if you avoid the pressure of rushing and the intensity of pushing; let yourself slow down to your own pace. It will be more of a vacation without taking more vacation. It’ll cost a bit more, but it’s worth it. Share a two-bedroom unit with a class member of the same gender if you wish, and halve the cost. We’ll do our best to pair you.


Class Schedule:
Monday 9-noon and 3-6
Tuesday 9-noon
Wednesday 9-noon and 3-6
Thursday 9-noon and 3-6
Friday 8-11

The normal Essentials 1 (formerly called Beginning) Course is taught, Covid guidelines added. The course is given in the complex’s pool. You must stay at Jamaica Royale. It’s advantageous to stay there: have more rest, fewer distractions, and be more present. If you live locally, you may stay at home if there are enough students staying at JR
to make it worth their while. Please call us to check: 941 921 6420.

Fly into Sarasota (SRQ), Tampa (TPA) or Fort Myers (RSW).

Six students, maximum. The course fee is nonrefundable with the exception of our Guarantee.
Masks required if class meets indoors (as of December 2021).

Buy a wetsuit shirt before the course. It should be 1-2 mm thickness and fit like your skin: no gaps. Florida Under Water Sports in Sarasota gives good discounts to Miracle Swimming students. A list of online sources will be sent after your registration.
We recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Allianz is a source.
