All staff are Red Cross certified Lifeguards with an average experience of 7 years, many at high volume locations. These are pros, not charming but inexperienced high schoolers. Wherever there is a pool involved in San Francisco. (and many other areas), we have staff ready to serve you professionally to maintain a safe and fun environment.

We are the largest private lifeguard service in the country,

Why hire us over another lifeguard company or even the kid down the street in San Francisco ?

We do a thorough evaluation and interview for all of our San Francisco Lifeguard for hire staff. We also are one of the only San Francisco Lifeguard for Hire companies that protects you with our insurance for PROFESSIONAL as well as general liability insurance and workers comp insurance.  Most lifeguard companies carry the minimum general liability (slips and falls) but they don’t carry the more specific professional liability coverage nor workers comp.  

Most importantly, if an accident happens no matter who’s at fault, you want your guard(s) properly insured for your protection.  Similarly, would you drive a car without car insurance or go to a doctor who you found didn’t carry malpractice insurance?  Above all, we cover you and your event, so you can enjoy the party.  

Additionally, almost all freelancers are completely uninsured. Who checks their criminal backgrounds and lifeguard certification status? Our staff is professionally checked for this. We hire the cream of the crop with the best experience, and again, with us, you have a team of managers and a company to back you up if someone flakes.

Alanna Baker, Event Lifeguard, Swaggy Surfer & Kooky Kayaker

San Francisco

I have been lifeguarding for about a year! Last summer, I lifeguarded at a summer camp on Orcas Island, Washington on the Puget Sound. During the school year, I lifeguard at the on campus pool during open swim hours. I love lifeguarding because I love the excitement that being in the water brings people, especially kids, and it’s awesome to be able to keep them safe while watching that passion grow. As a collegiate swimmer, I grew up practically living in the water, and I remember how much joy it brought me to be able to go to the pool when I was younger on a hot summer day. Lifeguarding reminds me of that by watching other people experience that same joy while I am also able to keep them safe.

Dano, Lifeguard, Trail Runner / Actor/Voiceover artist

Hello my name is Dano (Day-Noh),
I have been Lifeguarding for close to 5 years and have always loved the water ever since I took swim lessons as a kid. My intention is to prevent any life threatening injuries while on duty and educate pool patrons about safety in or out of the water. It is a commitment of mine to engage w/ the event staff and proactively develop an appropriate EAP (emergency action plan) incase we need to activate a rescue. In addition, to keeping a safe environment it’s always fun to play some pool games and share some swimming techniques with the pool guest. Feel free to ask for an early arrival time as it’s fine if you need some help setting a few things up prior to event.

In addition to lifeguarding, I spend most of my extra time pursuing my dream as an Actor, Model and Voiceover artist. This is one of my biggest passions in life.

I serve the North Bay Area communities of Monte Rio, Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Windsor, among others.
