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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

I like the Comox Valley Aquatic Centre because it has two slides, a wave pool, and a standard pool. The slides are fun, but children under seven are not allowed to slide alone.
I love this facility! Every time I visit, I look forward to swimming my lengths here. I love that there is no chlorine, there is lane swimming available from 6 AM to 10 PM (so I can choose when I swim), and there is such a congenial atmosphere. It's a facility well used and well managed. [November, 2013]
There are usually two lanes reserved for lane swimmers, although at some times only one lane may be available. Also, people who come for the water aerobics classes often like to come into the lanes to "practice swimming" before the class, so it's not smart to plan a concerted workout then. Best to check the schedule and, if possible, plan to come after the classes are over, when the pool clears out considerably. There's a swim shop selling a wide range of swimming gear on premises. The staff are knowledgeable and able to give sound advice about products meeting your needs. [December, 2013]
