I used to be a competitive swimmer, today I still dive as a hobby and love the sea and sun in Egypt. I am happy to pass on my love and passion for water sports to your children- so they can learn to swim by a safe and proven technique.

Ramy Elshamy

"Hello, my name is Ramy. I was lucky to learn swimming early as a kid because I loved the water. When I learned about the swimturtles method I was really fascinated! When swimturtles then offered me to become a swimming instructor in their team I did not think twice and said YES! 

I run my own business and still love the water. Since I live and work in the red sea region I finally have the chance to swim regularly. As a branding expert when I heard that swimturtles has a manual and method of their own and even grants a swimming guarantee, I knew we can get kids to learn swimming fast and easy with games and fun.

Swimming isn't hard to learn, and we can prove it. Happy to teach you and your beloved ones.

Regards, Ramy"

Parents feedback

Great course!

The little ones will soon be able to swim. You will be very motivated and will quickly achieve success. I can only recommend the course.

Awesome training

Our children learned to swim efficiently and within the specified course time at the age of 5, the method and the learning aids are great. From now on, our son only jumps from the 3 meter board and is proud that he can swim- he loves to jump over and over again.

Highly recommended

It's a shame, I only got to know swimturtles with my second child. How easy and with how much joy my son was able to learn to swim in a short time, I would have wished my older daughter had that experience too.

Professional method

Absolutely to be recommended. Thanks to the swimturtles learning method, the children can swim after just 6 weeks. It couldn't be more efficient, nowhere...

Our swimturtles learning method is unique in Egypt!

This credit will be deducted from the next course. No credits will be paid out in cash.
