id you know that Quebec is home to more than 500,000 residential pools? A great number of them can be found in Montreal, in addition to over 350 public aquatic facilities. Water recreation is rather omnipresent in Montreal.
However, swimming lessons are limited to just a few dozen public pools. Seeing this disparity between access to water and access to swimming lessons, Annie and William made the decision to found Aquado.
In Montreal, Aquado brings an innovative service by bring swimming lessons directly to residential pool owners. A team of certified and experienced master-swimmers travel to each swimmer’s home in order to offer them high-quality lessons. Aquado’s goal is to make swimming lessons more available and ensure that each and every Montrealer can be safe around a body of water.

“Once again we had a great summer with Annie. Milan’s confidence in the water grew and he was eager to show off the new tricks Annie taught him. As a mom, I love the way Annie challenges my son to go beyond what he feels he can do. Looking forward to swim lessons with Aquado again next year.“
