Lifeguard Service

Serving the Tri-State Area: NJ, NYC, Long Island, & CT

Greater New York City (Tri-State Area) Private Lifeguard for Hire Service

We are mobile throughout all New York Metro.  Westchester Co, Rockland Co,  and  Jersey to Greenwich and out Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk Counties)

It’s smart to hire a lifeguard for a party, and we’re the company to serve you. Here’s a little about us:

Happy Swimmers private lifeguard service began in 1991 in Los Angeles, and over the years, we’ve expanded to many metro areas nationwide, in the aim of truly preventing many of the drownings and near-drowning accidents we’ve read about in the news. In 2009 we started service in New York. We are the largest, oldest lifeguard for hire service in the country.

Why hire us over another lifeguard company or even the kid down the street? – We are the only lifeguard for hire company that protects you with our insurance for PROFESSIONAL as well as general liability insurance.  Most swim companies carry the minimum general liability (slips and falls) but they don’t carry the more comprehensive professional liability coverage.  God forbid, if an accident happens no matter who’s fault, you want your guard(s) properly insured for you.  Would you drive a car without proper insurance or go to a doctor who you found didn’t carry malpractice insurance to cut corners?  We cover you and your event, so you can enjoy the party.  Additionally, know that freelancers are completely uninsured. Who checks their criminal backgrounds and lifeguard certification status? Our staff is professionally checked for these. We hire the cream of the crop with the best experience, and with us, you have a team of managers and a company to back you up if that guard flakes.

Price for up to 3 hours is $209 per lifeguard.  Over 3 hours add $25/half hour per lifeguard.  Feel free to keep the guards over your original booking pending their schedule.  Our office will bill you.  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.  Just recently, one guard made 4 rescues to children at a busy party.  Think their parents thought he was worth it?

Allen Clare| Life Guard | NYC

Allen Clare, Lifeguard, Swim Instructor

Bronx

15 years experience!

Serving the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut areas of Greater NYC.

Ever since a child I was always in the water. Being born in urban New York City my mother wanted me to learn how to swim. After completing all the learn to swim program levels, I decided to push myself further and become a lifeguard. Though I enjoy guarding, however my heart remains primarily as an instructor. Being able to positively change a child’s life, give them confidence in and out of the water is priceless. These are all things I wish to instill in my students, as well as my own son.

Being a lifeguard has been one of the most exciting jobs I’ve had in my life. Not only because it is a great responsibility but as well for the fun. A good lifeguard should always stand for safety, fun and being a good role model. All of which I can I promise to uphold.

Proud Parent to a beautiful son.

Paramus

I taught swim lessons at camp and privately for the last 3 years working with children of all ages. I love helping children learn how to swim and their “aha!” moment when they finally get a stroke and become comfortable with it. I actually learned how to swim pretty early on. At the tender young age of just 4 years old I would swim on my own!

I’ve been lifeguarding for the last 5 years and teaching swim lessons for the last 3. I always keep a fun and safe environment for my patrons and love to see a smile on their faces after a job well done. Event lifeguarding is so much fun and you meet so many new and interesting people.

Jabari | Swim Instructor

Jabari, Private Swim Instructor and Lifeguard

NYC Tri-State Area

I have been a lifeguard and swim instructor for 5 years.

I began my instruction career at the Rutgers University pool. I began with teaching adults and then transitioned to teaching children. I also taught a few children’s lessons over the summer at the YMCA camp. I thoroughly enjoy teaching children because of their typically energetic attitude just to be in the water. The most amount of joy I get from teaching is when I see the amazement in an adult’s eyes when they are swimming when they came in with the thought they’d never learn how to swim.

My background consists of learning to swim as a small child and becoming a competitive swimmer in my youth through to high school. I began Lifeguarding five years ago at Rutgers University, where I am now a Head Lifeguard. I also have experience being a lake lifeguard with the Frost Valley YMCA camp. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the camp. My intention for being a Lifeguard and Swimming instructor is to help make any aquatics setting as safe and comfortable as I can for as many people as I can. I enjoy interacting with energetic people, and being able to provide a form of safety and security for people that is very unique and in a setting where people can thoroughly enjoy themselves.

I serve the NYC Tri-State area communities of Long Branch, Manasquan, Atlantic City, among others. 

Jamela

Baychester

I have been a lifeguard for about two years. I am an attentive lifeguard, continuously scanning the pool and my surroundings. I was a lifeguard for a Day Camp at a lake and I not only guarded but also taught swimmers from the age of 3-12 years old how to swim. I love to play water games such as sharks and minnows, red light green light and relay with the swimmers. When I was younger my mom would always have to remind me to eat because I could swim all day if I had the option too. This is why I take pride in being a lifeguard it’s not just a job for me but kind of a lifestyle where water is my element.

Home turf areas for me: Pelham, Whie Plains, New York City

Waterfront Lifeguard Certified as well.

I’ve worked as a pool guard for a public athletic center and as an ocean/pool guard for a private beach club.  I intend to continue developing my skills as a lifeguard while continuing to forge connections with people and making swimmers feel safe. I intend to improve upon my sense of responsibility and independence. What I like most about lifeguarding is working with people. I thrive off of the energy from the adults and kids and enjoy making connections with new people. One fun fact about me is that I love drawing and painting (particularly in Bob Ross’ style). Also, my initials are JZ (kind of like Jay-z the rapper 🙂 

I serve the NY/ Long Island communities of Southampton, Westhampton, Riverhead, Hampton Bays, Easthampton, among others

I started lifeguarding during high school and loved it, I worked at a country club that also hosted corporate and private events, I soon realized that the days of those events were my favorite to work. My intention when guarding is to keep everyone safe and happy while in and around the pool. What I love most about lifeguarding is all the interesting people you get to meet, and a fun fact about me is while I am a collegiate athlete and I swim 3 times a week for my training I am actually a pole vaulter on a track team!

Baldwin, NY; 6 years lifeguarding, 2 years swim teacher

Hi my name is Maryann McNally. I am 21 years old. I live on Long Island, NY. I am certified in CPR and life-guarding. I have been lifeguarding for 6 summers now. I want the everyone in the pool to be safe and have fun! I also have experience teaching swimming lessons. I was a swimming instructor for 2 years.

Monica, Private Swim Instructor, Lifeguard, and Creative Music Lover

Queens

I have been teaching swimming lessons for three years now and I enjoy teaching kids the most because they are sponges. They learn quickly and I find it very rewarding to see a child’s progress. I also like teaching adults because you can rationalize with them when it comes to fear or their corrections. Teaching lessons is enjoyable for me because I know what it’s like to have that fear of the water and I love helping people get over that.

I have been lifeguarding for three summers too and working in different pools has taught me to be aware of surroundings that you would think wouldn’t cause any trouble. I like lifeguarding events because not only am I guarding lives, I also get to see kids having fun and it reminds me of my childhood. One fun fact about me is that I didn’t know how to swim when I joined water polo in high school, I was actually terrified of the water.

I serve the NYC communities of Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, among others.

Nicholas, Lifeguard for Hire

Trenton NJ, serving NJ and greater Philly

I have been Lifeguarding for 7 years since I was 15. I have guarded pools at gyms, a high school, backyards, camps, and a community college. My intentions as your lifeguard are rooted in preventing accidents from happening in the first place while providing you with peace of mind that if an emergency does happen I am able to respond quickly and effectively. What I like most about Lifeguarding events is meeting new people and seeing all of the unique pool designs that I have encountered over the years and how creative some can be when designing their pool. A fun fact about me is that my favorite marine animal is a sea turtle because they take things nice and easy, plus they love the water!

I serve the NYC Tri-State Area communities of Hamilton, NJ. New Brunswick, NJ. Hightstown, NJ. East Windsor, NJ, among others.

A little bit about Christine: After working as an LAPD scientific investigator for 11 years I transitioned to completing my M.S. degree in Chemistry then followed a teaching and research path in university academics for several years.

Hello,

Simon, Lifeguard for Hire

Edison

Hi, I’m Simon and am a new lifeguard this summer. I feel that my status as a rookie guard is more of a strength, rather than a detriment, because I have recent training and I am very eager to be a lifeguard. In my school, I am the editor-in-chief of the school newspaper and a player on the varsity basketball team, as well as a member of my township’s youth council and an active altar server. I’m all about giving back, so I am excited to serve.

Spartak, Lifeguard for Hire and Universal free-spirit

Arrochar

The 5 years worth of experience at luxury residential buildings, has exposed me to a variety of individuals of all backgrounds. The variety both in my personal life, and my work keeps my happiness and ambitions high; the mundane is of little interest to me. Lifeguarding allows me to constantly learn, expose myself to the new and striving for the spontaneous. “Carpe diem”

I serve the NYC metro areas of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, among others. 

Stephanie, Lifeguard for Hire

NYC tri-state area

I am a NYC middle school math teacher, and love every minute of what I do. Having summers off, I decided years ago to make the most of what I can, in continuing to try to help others, so I decided to become a lifeguard/swim instructor. I have been a lifeguard for about 10 years now at a few different camps throughout the summers. There is nothing better in my eyes than seeing the faces of smiling children, knowing that they are having fun, and that they are safe at the same time.

I serve the NYC tri-state areas of Westchester County, Rockland County, Ct, among others
