The Basics





Miracle Swimming teaches you to swim—to be reliable for your safety, happy, and confident in deep water—the imperative priority over strokes. Once you're happy and safe in deep water, then we'll teach you strokes. Strokes come in our 3rd class.

Our basic class is 24 hours long: 8 three-hour sessions.
In Sarasota FL and Palm Springs CA, it's given as 8 sessions in 5-days.
In Albany, CA, it's given as 1 session each Saturday and Sunday for 4 weekends.
In New York City, it's given as morning and afternoon sessions Saturday and Sunday for 2 weekends.
In Boston, it's given in 8 days, one session per day, usually in October.


It usually takes adults who are afraid in water 48 hours of our system—our 24-hour Beginning and 24-hour Next Step classes—to become confident and free in deep water.

Each student goes at his/her own pace. The length of time could be shorter or longer. We do not push and we do not hold you back. Stay comfortable all the time.


The price of a class is between $1145 and $1545 depending on location. Prices can be found at the Registration page for that class.

Everyone starts with the Beginning class in order to overcome his/her fear of water. See the FAQ (at the left) if you're wondering why you can't start at the Next Step class.


To find the Beginning classes and all levels, go to the Classes tab above, then to Class Levels.

Once there, if you're new to Miracle Swimming, click on the Beginning or Ultra Beginning class links to see what is available to you now besides the book and DVD.
You'll be taken to a page that lists the locations where that level is offered this year.

If you're a Miracle Swimmer already, click
the level of class you're interested in.

There are other locations of class as well, taught by our licensed instructors. You can find those other locations at this page (Licensed Satellite Schools).

If you go to the calendar (and wait for the interactive calendar to load) and if these licensed instructors have placed an ad on the calendar, you can find when the classes at that location are scheduled. You can also contact those schools by clicking on the link at the "other locations page."

At Miracle Swimming, you can learn to swim, snorkel, do strokes, and SCUBA dive, having fun the entire time.

Our FAQ page answers many commonly-asked questions.

Hope to see you in a class soon.

Miracle Swimming, a paradigm shift in teaching, is available from us and our licensed instructors, only. There is no other system that can teach you in 48 hours how to be confident and free in deep water, able to do as you please, as far as we have seen or heard in 31 years. If you need proof, read our book, which teaches you how to use our system for yourself, or our Student Comments.
