A little about Blue Ocean Aquatics first

Blue Ocean Aquatics started in 2015 as lifeguard instructors to fill a need in the area for training services. Since starting, Kaitlyn and Nick have been training Lifeguards, medical professionals, camp professionals and a variety of others using the latest American Red Cross and American Heart Association science and techniques.

The goal has always been to provide a comprehensive service. We continued to expand our course offerings to meet the needs of others. For those that are just starting out as Lifeguards, we started building relationships with businesses to help place them in quality positions in the area.

We have trained hundreds of individuals in emergency response skills including Lifeguarding, CPR/AED, First Aid, Responding to Emergencies, etc.

Recently, we added on the ability to train other instructors by getting certified to teach Lifeguard Instructors and Water Safety Instructors.
