Baby Otter is a “do good, feel good” service oriented business focused on saving children and adults from drowning by teaching them our proprietary STATE and NATIONALLY certified Five day “Turn, Kick Reach”® private program of instruction. Being Florida’s Premier traveling swim school gives us the opportunity to reach the masses in a very rapid period of time.  

This program was designed by one of the founders over 40 years ago. Our program’s national accreditation sets us apart from other swim schools.  Our staff has over 75 years combined experience and voted #1 by our swimmers and parents.  We are considered drowning prevention experts in the field of aquatics.



At the Baby Otter Andre Dawson Aquatic Center, we believe and have proven time and time again that as soon as a child learns to crawl, they need to learn to swim. In addition, all parents need to be educated on the “layers of protection” which prevent senseless drownings. We are a one stop shop, making sure that these tragedies don’t happen through both swimming lessons and education.

Baby Otter Andre Dawson Aquatic Center has acquired its own state and national certification to teach our swimming instructional programs. What this means is that we do not use the Red Cross, YMCA or any other certification programs. The State of Florida has recognized our swimming programs to be a standalone program which is outstanding in its own rights. That speaks volumes in the swimming industry.
