Miracle Swimming

Jump Off the Boat

Jump off the Boat

Course Details:

Jumping off a boat into the blue at Miracle Swimming requires knowing what it means to stay in your body, overcoming fear of jumping into the blue, of deep water, of open water, and trusting (at least your spotter) that you’ll come back up! Lastly, it’s about making your way back to the ladder of the boat peacefully.

This class is for people who have already jumped into deep water in a pool at least a handful of times. You know if you have. It is three sessions:

  • One session in a pool with a deep end
  • Two sessions in one day out on the boat in the blue. Lunch on the boat in between.
  • Each session is one hour on land followed by 2 hours in the water

The goal of this class in our minds is that you become very comfortable jumping off a boat in the blue: it no longer has a charge for you. You may even want to dive in.

We believe that three sessions will be plenty to meet our goals for this class. Since the first offering is an experiment, the normal price of $500 is reduced to $445.
