Australia Lifeguard Service
Wow, I don’t know about you, but wow…I love NYE in the harbor! (That’s not necessarily much to do with our Lifeguard Hire service, but, hey, why not give credit where it’s due…now back to our regularly scheduled programming…lol:
Happy Swimmers Lifeguard Hire is a 27 year-old company from America, now with offices in Australia’s main capital cities. We know how to keep your pool party guests safe and happy this summer. We do this by providing fun yet professional, experienced, liability insured private pool and surf lifeguards across Sydney, from the Blue Mountains to Bondi, from Botany Bay to the Northern Beaches. Yes, these lifeguards serve a variety of functions: children’s pool parties (our specialty), school break parties, wedding receptions around pools, entertainment industry water location filming, and corporate event parties. Happy Swimmers Australia provides an incredible staff for all of these needs. Our staff are nationally certified lifeguards with an average experience of 5+ years, many at high volume locations. These are pros, not nice but inexperienced teenagers. Wherever there is a pool involved in Sydney and its suburbs (and most of the other capitol cities), we have staff ready to serve you professionally to maintain a safe and fun environment.
A handful of some of the common areas we serve:
Special Summer Price for up to 3 hours is $224! Over 3 hours: add $37/half hour per lifeguard. Feel free to keep the guards over your original booking pending their schedule and our office will send you a balance due which can be paid by credit card, like your deposit. 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 pool party. Their parents definitely thanked the host for booking our lifeguard. We love keeping the kids (and adults) safe so you can enjoy your party.
Tip from the guards:
It’s better to have one set of eyes watching the pool rather than several who are half-watching, half-socializing. We all too often see toddlers walk down the steps in the shallow end, and go under, not able to signal for help. Luckily, we catch this before it happens, but parents, know this and stay aware. One of the smartest choices is to have a professional lifeguard hired, for sure.

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.

20 Years of Experience as a Swim Instructor and CPR Instructor
2 years as a Lifeguard
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!
–Jenn Tyler, owner, and founder
I have been a lifeguard for the past seven years. I have enjoyed working in Geelong and Tasmania at a variety of indoor and outdoor pools. I am now based in Bondi 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 Bondi, Sydney, etc.
Extra certifications I hold: WETS water aerobics instructor course, PADI scuba diving certified, First Aid Level 2, Mental Health First Aid
Currently, I work at Fairfield Pool as a lifeguard/ duty manager. I have worked in the aquatic industry for 7 years. These covered council run private pools, included private swim lesson. Additionally, I worked in welfare assisting in family events and playgroups.
I worked at Council pools and ran private and learn to swim pools. My main emphasis is on child water safety
10 years experience
I’ve been an Australian Bondi Surf Lifesaver since 2008 with a certification in Rescue Boat lifesaving. I am passionate about first aid and survival skills and when I’m lifeguarding I pride myself on safety and prevention. I initially became a volunteer lifeguard because it was a way to give back to the community and be part of a Surf lifesaving club that has given 109 years of service.
