Melbourne and Suburbs Lifeguard Hire Service
Australia Lifeguard Service
Hire a lifeguard from Happy Swimmers for the safety of your children’s pool party or to professionally serve your corporate event.
We serve the greater Melbourne area with our professional lifeguard staff. Our guards are covered by general liability insurance to keep our clients’ exposure down. This is a prime reason to hire us over an uninsured “friend of a friend” and what happens if they don’t show? We have a school of staff that are instantly notified of your need, by a dedicated manager and owner.
Special Grand Opening Price for up to 3 hours is $224! Over 3 hours: add $40/half hour per lifeguard. Feel free to keep the guards over your original booking pending their schedule. Our office would then send you a balance due notice which can be paid by credit card on our website. The booking form on the next page will easily calculate your cost based on your party length and amount of lifeguards. We’re a cheap alternative to an accident.
Here are some of the common communities we serve in Melbourne: Toorak, Deepdene, Canterbury, Middlepark, Balwyn, St. Kilda West, Brighton, Armadale, Malvern, and Kew. We probably serve your community too if you’re within 50 k of the CBD that’s normal range for us.
Just recently, one guard made 4 rescues of children at a busy pool party. Their parents definitely thanked us for being there. We love keeping the kids (and adults) safe so you can enjoy your party. Come be a Happy Swimmer!
One set of dedicated eyes, watching a pool is more important than half a dozen people half-watching while half-socializing. Toddlers bloop down the steps faster than parents think, and the toddler can’t call for help once under water. Our guards see this, and prevent it often before anyone notices. It’s smart to hire that lifeguard.

Yumi and Jere were wonderful lifeguards when they guarded our end of year pool party on Wednesday June 11 from 11-2. They were in touch with me, were on time and prepared, and were very responsible and knowledgeable. I was so happy to be able to put two adults in charge of our fourth grade class party.
Based on my experience with Yumi Temple and her cohort Jere, I would highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. So happy we used your business.
Hi Jenn.. wow today was really scary. I had to use my first aid skills on my mom! We work at the same preschool & she had an allergic reaction & went into shock! I did everything I remembered until the paramedics came.. I really can’t thank you enough for teaching me everything I needed to know!
Everything about my experience with Happy Swimmers has been amazing! From the scheduling to the fantastic teacher they sent for my 5 and 6 year old. The instructor, Emma, had to contend with 2 very different personalities along with 2 different levels of swimming experience. She was more than equipped to deal with that and gave each child unparalleled support, encouragement and instruction. I highly recommend this service to all parents that want to give their child a great experience in being water safe!
We have three kids ages 7, 4, and 2 & 1/2. This was our second year having Happy Swimmers, with instructor Trisha Commons, come teach our kids (the two oldest) to swim. I tried another company the year before I tried Happy Swimmers and although the kids learned swim safety, they were bored and did not learn how to enjoy the pool. Trisha got our son, who did not really like swimming, having fun and by the end of last year could swim the entire length of the pool on his own.
Trisha is great with the kids and is flexible in her teaching style to work with different personalities. She is able to get the kids confident in their abilities and teaches them how to swim, but also teaches them how to have fun! I will definitely be asking Happy Swimmers and Trisha to teach the kids again next year.
I have a toddler and a pool and wanted to make sure my son learned water safety. After taking some group classes last summer, I knew I wanted more one-on-one attention at our home. This summer I reviewed several in-home companies and was impressed with Happy Swimmers approach of water safety.
Trish worked with my stubborn 2-yr old 2-3 times a week. Within the first lesson he knew how to climb out of the pool and to ask permission before getting in. Although our goal was to get him water comfortable more than “swimming”, he indeed learned to swim within a few weeks. We extended our lessons and really appreciated Trish’s approach. We will sign up again next summer. Many of our friends with children happened to be present on several lessons and I expect they will also sign up next summer as well.
Hired a happy swimmers for private life guard for a party for over 200 people at my house. The lifeguard was great. She called to confirm before, came on time, and stayed later then we originally signed up because the party went over. She also showed up on time despite there being a black out that because of storms the day before. I highly recommend Happy Swimmers.

Hi! my name is Danny. I’m 21 and currently reside in Melbourne, Australia. What I have always liked most about lifeguarding, is that you help provide a fun yet safe environment for people of various ages & ethnicity’s to enjoy. I have helped accomplish this at a number of pools and in open water settings within Australia, and I’ve also got experience pool lifeguarding in the United States.
Living on Kaua’i island, Hawai’i most of the year, and traveling to Australia, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay, and Houston regularly to lead Lifeguard Courses and CPR training, Jenn has been the director of Happy Swimmers for over 25 years. It is a passion to assist in the empowerment of children learning how to swim in a medium once considered a fearful, uncertain place, magically turned into a supportive, fun environment to be explored with friends. The same goes for lifeguarding and training new lifeguards–there is no greater inner joy either in saving someone’s life as a lifeguard, or teaching others how to perform lifesaving skills. It is an honor for me to watch my students grow–where once there was doubt or panic, now there is strength and confidence.
Thank you for looking to become a Happy Swimmer!

I have been a lifeguard for the past seven years. I have enjoyed working in Tasmania at a variety of indoor and outdoor pools. I am now based in Geelong which is perfect for someone who loves anything to do with water and the outdoors. I have volunteered as a swimming coach and a surf therapist for children with and without disabilities since 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I find providing first aid and lifesaving to the community extremely rewarding, and most importantly being involved in all the fun that goes with being around the water. I think providing a safe and enjoyable environment at pool parties is the perfect gig!
Common areas I serve include Geelong, Melbourne, Torquay, Werribee
Extra certifications I hold: WETS water aerobics instructor course, PADI scuba diving certified, First Aid Level 2, Mental Health First Aid
