The Importance of Teaching Your Child to Swim

Last updated 4 years ago

No matter how old your child it, it is never too early (or too late) to teach your little one to swim. This is especially important if you own a boat or are planning on renting a boat during the spring or summer. Until you child is four years old, focus on swimming-readiness skills. This will get your child comfortable with water before beginning serious lessons when he or she is older. Once your child developed the coordination necessary to learn to swim on his own, you can enroll him in formal swimming lessons. Your child should learn how to float independently, submerge his head below the water for five or ten second, glide through the water, and use coordinated kicking and arm movements.

Once your entire family is ready for the water, visit Moose Landing Marina in Naples, Maine. We offer boat rentals so you and your family can enjoy the open water whenever you’d like. And if you’d like to enjoy boating all year round, let us help you find a great new or used boat for sale. Call our full-service Marina at (888) 379-8265 to learn more about our boat rentals and sales.
