Tall Thom’s Swim School, or TTSS as we like to call it, is a company dedicated to teaching survival in and around the water, swimming for fun and stroke, and passing on FUN, FUN, FUN! We currently offer swimming lessons to children and adults in the Miami and Cocoa Beach areas. We have a pool in the Kendale Lakes area of Miami and one in south Cocoa Beach. Our main service to our customers is traveling to their home and teaching in their pool.

Although we are rapidly expanding our area, currently we serve from the North Grove down to Palmetto Bay from the water to about 87th ave. We also serve Key Biscayne and Brickell Key. Recently we have expanded to serve areas like midtown and downtown Miami, South Beach, Miami Springs, Cutler Bay, and west of 87th ave from 8th street to 152nd street. We are also looking to expand more north to Miami Shores, Aventura, North Miami, and even into South Broward.
