Happy Swimmers’ greater Seattle lifeguard for hire service is here to keep a professional, watchful eye on your children’s pool party or corporate event. Founded in 1991, Happy Swimmers served California for many years, and expanded nationwide, with now also its inaugural season in King County!
We serve the Greater Seattle area including Mercer Island, Bellevue, Kirkland, Edmonds, Madrona, and Renton to name a few, with our certified, experienced lifeguard staff. Our staff is both general and professional liability insured (the only lifeguard company that does so, protecting our clients). Guards are Red Cross certified, and highly personable.
Inaugural Price for up to 3 hours is $189 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?

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.

I currently work at an amusement Park, Wild Waves, as a lifeguard this summer. I’m drawn toward lifeguarding because I enjoy watching the kids and families enjoy their time and want to make sure they can do that, by me being there for their safety. A fun thing to know about me is I love the water to I’m always in it and I have gotten to swim with dolphins because of it.

Hi, I’m Dallas. I have been teaching swimming lessons consistently since February of 2017. I teach a wide range of levels from beginning pre-school ages all the way to higher teenage levels. I work patiently and effectively with each child, giving each child equal time to work on techniques as well as making time for fun but educational activities. I find instructing an incredibly rewarding experience that allows me to pass on a skill to a child that they will use for the rest of their lives. I am a fully trained lifeguard with certifications in CPR, First Aid, and AED.
I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1995. When I was 2 years old, my family moved to Southern Utah, near Zion National Park. I grew up spending most of my time outdoors rock climbing, hiking, camping, canyoneering, and most of all swimming during the long and hot summers experienced there. After graduating from high school, I moved to Seattle, Washington where I attended Highline College. There in Seattle, I experienced great music, incredible scenery, and made many amazing friends. Through my college, I was presented with the opportunity to become a lifeguard and a swim instructor. I found a true interest and love in the profession, building strong connections with fellow co-workers, regular patrons, as well as the children I taught. This summer (2017) I was given the unique opportunity to live in Hollywood, California. Here I aim to build more strong connections and increase my increase my experience within the aquatic community.
I serve the Greater Seattle area.

I’ve always been a water baby-I grew up around the water and began swimming competitively when I was 8 years old. I became a junior lifeguard when I was 14. I first became certified as a lifeguard/swim instructor in 2013. I re-certified last year and spent the summer lifeguarding in California, as well as assisting with swim/dive instruction. I want to provide people with a safe and fun environment, and help create the same amazing experiences and memories that I had growing up!

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. I then moved to Hawaii in 2008 where I first joined the JTA CPR/ Happy Swimmers team as a CPR/First Aid instructor. During these years I had always made a priority in volunteerism being active in the National Ski Patrol and the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. Today I reside in Houston and presently support Help America Today turning elementary aged kids into the volunteers of tomorrow through grassroots community service projects. My passion for teaching and making a positive impact on our society is why I love teaching CPR and First Aid, particularly for those never certified. I am proud to now expand into the administrative staff of the company and be a part of turning children into happy swimmers.
I have worked for City of Glendale and Los Angeles County as a lifeguard and I am currently working for city of Pasadena as a senior lifeguard. something interesting about me is that although I am a very good swimmer and a lifeguard, I am actually scared of the ocean, maybe for the fact that I do not know whats under the water since I can not see it . I am also fluent in Armenian and Farsi
Areas I commonly serve: Los Angeles, pasadena, Encino, Studio City
