Float On Swim Maui





private swim lessons

45-60 min - Private swim lessons provide one-on-one attention that allows swimmers to learn at their own pace and excel faster! Lessons vary from goal-specific ("I want to learn how to swim freestyle") to overall swim progression ("I want to learn how to swim better".) Using a variety of games (age-specific), training aids (such as kick boards, flippers, paddles), and swim drills, swimmers progress quickly and gain water confidence!  

Emily is wonderful! She is so knowledgeable about both swimming and children. My son has a true love for water and Emily has been a huge contributor!

adult swim lessons

45-60 min - Whether you are a novice swimmer who wants to learn the basics of swimming for exercise or a triathlete who wants to cut time, these classes are perfect for all levels. Following the private or semi-private structure above, swimmers are guided through stroke development by learning fundamental skills first and perfecting technique after in a way that promises success and water confidence! 

intro to snorkeling

2 hr - Take a guided snorkel tour with me as I show you some of my favorite snorkel spots in Kihei. Learn how to use a snorkel, what to do in an emergency, and feel confident in the ocean. Interact with turtles, red pencil sea urchins, and a multitude of fish! Certified in First Aid & CPR and a Lifeguard, I can supply flotation devices upon request.

Semi-Private lessons

60 min - Semi-private lessons are a great alternative to private swim lessons when two swimmers are involved. Students can swim together for the full hour or the lesson can be split into two 30 min. sessions (dependent on swimmer's ages and abilities). 

water babies- Intro to Water

30-45 min- This class is a great opportunity to bond with your child (6 mo. and up) and help your baby/toddler learn to love and interact safely with the water. Learn proper water holds and baby swim survival skills (Level II)  while playing games and singing songs for an incredibly fun and dynamic class. Your child is able to do so much in the water when introduced correctly! This class excels when a group of parents signs up for a package together (discounts available). 

Emily is an amazing swim instructor. She understands so much about child development and what the babies, toddlers, and kids are able to do. Our toddlers learned so much from her and we had so much fun too.

Aloha! Emily here, your Maui private swim lesson instructor! A Colorado native who has been teaching swim lessons for 10+ years, I have always loved being in and around the water and I swam competitively throughout high school and college. I believe in hands-on, progressive, safe, and goal-based swim lessons. Students make significant progress on their swimming goals EACH class. My swim lessons are VERY hands-on and I'm in the water every lesson, no matter what.

Combining games, drills, and specific skill sets means that students are constantly improving and developing their strokes. With Swim Instructor and Water Safety Instructor (WSI) Red Cross certifications and a background in competitive swimming, I make sure that participants learn skills that sync with national standards. 

I have taught a wide range of ages and personalities and I will design a personalized swim lesson to fit your needs.  I  am comfortable with all ages and abilities, from the complete beginner to the triathlete! I especially love working with young children who are nervous of the water and older children interested in perfecting their swim stroke. I also have experience teaching kids with autism, epilepsy, and physical disabilities.


Maui Float On Swim, LLC travels all over the island of Maui to your own private home, condo, or hotel pool.  All swim equipment, toys, and training tools are provided.
