    Scuba Shades Looking for a Swim Instructor

    Hi All,

    We're a new scuba AND SWIM center, I know how to find scuba instructors, any ideas on how to find swim instructors?

    They obviously need to be at least lifeguard certified and willing to get insurance (similar to scuba instructors insurance).

    If you know anyone in the north San Diego County area, please send them my way!

    Thanks,
    Kara

    Just call the local red cross and tell them you are looking, they will post your information in all the classes they have. They like to help place those that are looking.

    You can also check with your local YMCA if you have any in your area. I was a lifeguard and swim instructor with one many moons ago.
    I have given up the struggle of trying to make a living in pursuit to that of building a life I enjoy.
