Philadelphia Metro Lifeguard for Hire
Delaware Valley is our Home Turf
Mobile to the Greater Philadelphia Area Providing Private Event Lifeguard for Hire Service
We’ve pulled over 30 children out of perilous situations in backyard kids pool parties and barbecues this Summer, all while the parents often had no suspicion the little ones were in trouble. We take our job seriously so you can enjoy the party. Often guests comment to the host how incredible and secure they felt knowing a lifeguard was hired for their friend’s party. Here’s a little about us:
Let us 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. This is our inaugural year in greater Philly, and we hope to do you proud. After 25 years and countless lives saved we believe we’re a smart choice to keep your party safe and fun at the same time.
Common Philly areas we also serve: Camden, Wilmington, Reading, Trenton, Vineland and Atlantic City.
Price for up to 3 hours is $199 for the first lifeguard. Need additional lifeguards? They are at a $15 discount each for $184. Over 3 hours add $25/half hour per lifeguard. If you know you’re 45 minutes to an hour outside Philly, we can still serve you but may ask for a $25 travel stipend added based on where the nearest lifeguard who can serve you lives.
Feel free to keep the guards over your original booking time, pending their schedule is free. It’s best to pre-book the total hours needed, just to make sure your guard is open. Our office will bill you if you need extra time on-scene. 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?

Founder and owner
Delaware Valley Lifeguards at Your Service
I have been a swim instructor for 3 years teaching both groups and private lessons. I have taught children of all ages, ranging from 5 years old to 12 years old; I have taught adults as well. I love watching when a lesson masters a new skill and becomes more confident in themselves. One fun fact about myself: I know how to snowboard!
I have lifeguarded at a private college ranging from open swimming to diving. I intend to maintain a safe and fun environment. The best part of lifeguarding events is watching people enjoy the pool.
Serving: Lawrenceville, Hamilton, Princeton, Mountgomery
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.
I serve the NYC Tri-State Areas of Paramus, Philadelphia, New York, Manalapan, among others.
I’ve been swimming competitively for since the age of 5 and currently swim at the collegiate level. I have lifeguarded at my local swim club for the past 4 summers along with lifeguarding private events. I love lifeguarding private events because you get to make sure that patrons have fun and stay safe.
Serving: Philadelphia, Cherry Hill, King of Prussia
Hi! My name is Maddy and this is my first year working with Happy Swimmers. I am both lifeguard certified and waterfront certified, as during the summers I work at a summer camp at both boating and swimming. I am on a competitive canoe team and love to canoe, kayak, sail, and more. I am excited for this season and am happy to be part of the team!
I serve the Philadelphia and New Jersey communities of Philadelphia proper, Trenton, and King of Prussia, among others.
My background is in the legal profession working as a legal secretary for many years. I stopped working to raise two children who are now young adults. My daughter is a teacher in the Portland school district, and my son is an artist who lives on the East coast. For the last twenty-four years, I worked as a Special Education Assistant in the Los Angeles Unified School District. For twenty of those years, I worked with at-risk students and students with special needs at the secondary level. These students resided in a residential facility, and I worked closely not only with the entire school staff but with the social workers and staff at the residential placement. I am excited to be part of the Management Team of Happy Swimmers and look forward to working with you.
Born and raised in NYC I have been swimming since I was 2 years old. I swam competitively all through grade school and high school and loved it! I have been lifeguarding year round (not only summers) for 11 years. When lifeguarding my main priority is swimmer safety while having fun!
I serve the NYC communities of Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, Westchester, among others.
