"ORCA Swim Schools has gone above and beyond our expectations. Our son started lessons at 3 months old and can now kick, splash and submerge with eyes and mouth closed. The teachers are friendly, supportive and a pleasure to work with. Our son loves his lessons so much, that if he's upset, all we need to do is sing the welcome song to him and he starts to grin and laugh. Thank you for the invaluable memories, fun and new friends. We definitely recommend ORCA Swim Schools!"

“In 1 year my daughter has gone from clingy and scared to let let go, refusing to put her eyes in the water... after the commitment and dedication ORCA’s swimming instructors have shown, she is now confident and willing to give her all with a new found love of the water, no matter which instructor she has! Thank you! 🙏 Look out summer! Here we come!! 😁”

“My family has been going to ORCA Swim Schools in Warragul since the doors opened in February 2018 . We are truly impressed with the facilities on offer and the small class sizes make for an effective learning environment. The swimming teachers do a fantastic job and have been so patient with my twin boys who have special needs. We would like to acknowledge the entire team for all their hard work and for bringing this amazing swimming school to the area.”

“ORCA Swim Schools in Warragul has been our swim school of choice since the very day they opened. We love the warm pool and the UV and Ozone filtration, so there’s no yucky chlorine smell after our lessons. We love the low noise and low distraction lessons, well educated and professional teachers.... the list goes on and on. I feel that my children have the very best chance of being water safe, thanks to you!!

#1 Swim School in Baw Baw BY FAR when comparing our lesson experiences at the alternatives. We are only new to ORCA, and are in complete awe of their superior standards and have been left wondering why we didn’t move across sooner! The welcoming staff and intimate classes had us feeling immediately comfortable (AND ACKNOWLEDGED) while the pool itself and UV/Ozone disinfection has made an incredible difference to our daughter’s eczema. Highly recommend 🙌

When my 4yo son first started he was so anxious and it would take at least 15 mins of crying, convincing and fighting to get in the water. Now at 5yo he cannot wait to go to swimming!! He has come forward in leaps and bounds in such a short time thanks to the lovely girls at Orca! Each teacher we’ve had has been patient, caring, understanding and very professional. I can definitely recommend this swim school with confidence and know that you will have the same experience.

My son has been swimming with ORCA for about 9 months now and I can not believe how much he has learned! He loves going swimming every Sunday, and for a baby that was so scared of the water now loves it. The change rooms are nice and warm closed in so perfect in winter swimming too! The facilities are always clean all the ladies are so welcoming and lovely. I'm so glad I choose ORCA for our swimming lessons, well done girls keep up the good work x

Our lil superstar Arabella loves her lessons (even if her name is kinda hard to place in the welcome song 😂). Instructors are amazing! it’s so flexible - had a bad night with your young bubs no stress just give 2 hours notice and it can be transferred to a make up class at your convenience! Class size is fantastic and it is so exciting to see our little one really starting to get the hang of it. We started swimming at just after 3 months she is nearly 7 months and I am so glad we started when we did!!!

We have been swimming here for the last year and the improvement that I see in both my children is amazing! Chloe has gone from being so scared and not being able to let go of her teachers hand to now swimming nearly the whole length of the pool by herself! My other daughter can be quite a handful sometimes and their patience and understanding with her is fantastic! We are always greeted with friendly smiles and the facilities and staff are wonderful.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ORCA swim school Warragul is an absolutely fantastic swim school. Both of my girls love going here and I’m so pleased to be starting off my bub here in the lovely warm pool! All the instructors are amazing, Our teacher is a wonderful instructor and really knows how to relate the lessons to each child’s individual way of learning. I also love how there is very little chlorine used to clean the water, they have a super environmentally friendly method so less chemicals and the washing doesn’t stink!! We will be coming here for years to come :)

We have been swimming at ORCA since they opened and are so happy. At ORCA they continue to improve the lessons and facility and don’t just settle. All the little details add to a very pleasant experience, from heated change area, plenty of storage space, safety systems to hairdryers on your way out! Our teacher tailors the lesson to each child and we think that's fantastic. She is so wonderful with my child I just am so grateful, she has patience on his bad days and pushes him on his good days! Can’t recommend ORCA enough, very happy customer here!
Also love the newsletters and good communication 👌🏼

These ladies are just down right fantastic! We have been swimming here for 2 years now and every teacher we have had has been amazing! We decided to make the switch as soon as they opened in Warragul in order to return to a more local setting and we have not regreted it one single day. Their patience, understanding and love of teaching has been nothing short of wonderful. The pool is delicious and warm with no nasty chlorine smell at the end of it all thanks to their fancy filtering system. Thank you ladies for all you do and all you offer our great community.

ORCA swim school is run by a fabulous team! I always get greeted with a smile when I walk In the door and both my girls look forward to swimming lessons each week! Like all kids, mine too have their ups and downs, but the staff at ORCA know how to get them through these issues whether it's refusing to swim from lack of confidence, or just being a bit naughty on the day. I am always really impressed by how the team handle the attitudes and behaviours of different children and tailor to their needs. The small class sizes and the way the pool is set out allows for this. The continual improvements to the facilities are also great, hand rails, non slip mats great baby changing facilities to keep the kids toasty warm, their water has less chemicals than other pools so there is no strong chlorine smell either, and catch up lessons are available for times you can’t make it due to illness or holidays. They really do think of everything! I honestly couldn’t recommend them higher. 😁😁😁

Absolutely amazing from the receptionists to the teachers! We have been with this swim school since opening and have had nothing but improvements every week with both children! This is the best swim school we have attended, they have hairdryers to dry kids hair on the way out, warm change rooms for the kids and parents, heaters all throughout, a shower and toilets. I have found the swimming classes to be very small allowing more 1 on 1 time with the teachers which means faster improvement from the children!
Both my children (11.5 months and 3 years old) are beyond excited to go swimming every week and we love that the pool is a perfect temperature all year round!
Big thumbs up from us! Give it a shot! You will be far from disappointed and will feel welcome every single time without fail :)
Thankyou for all the work you all put in!

My children had been having lessons elsewhere and in the 4 years we swam there they had NOT progressed!! We've now been with ORCA for 6 months and they are actually swimming confidently and independently!! The teachers are so patient and treat each child as an individual!! They actually CARE!! I never thought I’d see the day that my children could swim so well!! THANK YOU!!

Our teacher is nothing short of amazing and she has been fantastic with our son when going through a “not listening” period. She is firm but kind. I love this place! I have experienced other swim lessons through leisure centres type classes and I will never go back. Staff are always friendly. My son has been swimming here since ORCA opened and they are continually improving the facility to make it better not only for the children but for the parents. I can’t wait till my daughter can start her lessons at 12 weeks.

We moved to ORCA from another centre. Our 2 children improved amazingly when they started here. The owners and teachers were so friendly, welcoming and warm. Most importantly, they made our children feel happy, safe and at ease. My kids love going every week and our eldest has graduated and still says she wants to go to lessons! Couldn’t recommend ORCA swim school enough! They are amazing! 😊

Our son started when he was 3 months old, and now at almost 1, he is like a little fish in the water with his paddle, paddle, kick, kick and absolutely loves swimming each week! We love that the classes are small and the repetition of skills each week is why our son is doing so well at such a young age.
