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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The staff are extremely kind and helpful. They take out any equipment needed and have it ready and waiting. It is a beautiful facility, and underused. I usually have the place to myself. I recommend it to anyone.
I just visited and swam some laps here on May 2. There was not a formal admission area open but I think it would have been very minimal charge. Otherwise the facility was open and I spent a great hour swimming alone. I was on a cruise and took a taxi there. City bus #8 takes you back to the pier downtown area.
[May, 2019]
The pool was available for lap swimming at no cost. (No lifeguard either!) The staff was friendly and said as long as you turn up before 3 PM you can use it, and I had the whole pool to myself. At 3 PM the kids' swim clubs take the whole pool. This was a Monday and I got the impression it was the same all week. Not sure about weekends.

Bus 8 will take you there from downtown (by the cruise terminal) and return you. It does a loop so get back on after your swim in the same direction as you were dropped off and it will eventually head back downtown ($1.25 each way, pay as you get off!).
