Why We Are On A Mission To Save Lives

Both of our founders, Marlene and Mindy, had children who almost drowned. No classes were offered to children younger than 3, so Marlene made it her mission to develop a program that could save children’s lives. Our program Turn, Kick, Reach was developed.

43 years later this program has saved thousands of lives, and we don’t want to stop there! Our mission is to make FLORIDA (and the world) a ZERO DROWNING STATE, to do this WE NEED YOU!

In the last 2 years we have sold 8 franchises, with plans to sell many more. That’s were you come in!

As a first-time business owner, I wasn’t sure how I was going to run and operate my business. I was advised every step of the way and I have seen amazing success! With the success I have had my first year, I bought additional territory’s in the Palm Beach area.

Having been a teacher and swim teacher it is important to teach children how to swim & be safe around the water. I am so impressed with their dedication and the way they care about each student that takes lessons at Baby Otter swim schools.
