Biscayne Bay Aquatic Center - Florida International University


Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

A perfect temperature and the water was crystal clear.
This place is just magnificent. Crystal clear and everything spotless. The water temp most days [in February] was 81º (but boosted slightly as the air temps last week were in the 50s).They provide kickboards and pull buoys. If only New York was this good.
This facility is owned and operated by the public Florida International University. To obtain admission, visitors must register on the FIU web site and buy a community member guest pass. Call staff for detailed instructions. The admission price includes access to the varsity weight room, as well as locker room and showers. Pay for parking in the university's lot, close by.

Recently renovated and reopened, this competition pool has excellent water quality but, in summer, the temperature is unregulated and can approach 90ºF (32ºC).

Among the renovations, upgrades to the technical systems include an advanced lighting detection system that requires pool closure and deck clearance when lightning is detected - even when the lightning is far away. This results in frequent closures (much to the chagrin and anger of routine patrons) – with no refunds made. I had completed only 14 laps, when the guards cleared the pool and closed facility due to potential lightning. No storms followed for the next three hours, but the system continued to warn of lighting. The facility remained closed until the next day.
