About Us


Founded in 2009 by former world-class swimmer Gus Calado, Planet Swim is now widely recognized as one of the top aquatic educational programs in Northeast Florida. Since its inaugural season, our TEAM of passionate teachers has taught close to 100,000 swimming lessons to children and adults ranging from novice to Olympic level swimmers.

Our teachers and learning curriculum is what sets us apart! With 6 learning stages, our curriculum focus on developing skills in a progression format where each skill is built upon skills learned in previous stages while emphasizing the 3 basic swimming principles: Floatation, Breath Control, and Displacement.

Located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, Planet Swim is a destination for both children and adults who are eager to learn or enhance their swimming skills. Our services range from group, semi-private, and private lessons as well as conditioning and competitive training.
