INSTRUCTORS

Our staff is made up of certified State Park lifeguards, all of which have successfully passed a rigid and extensive 80 hour lifeguard academy. All instructors are fingerprinted and enrolled in the Californa Department of Justice Live Scan program. Instructors are chosen for these positions based on an extensive knowledge of the ocean, excellent lifeguarding skills and their great ability to interact with youths. The instructor to student ratio is about 20:1.

 

Instructor photos & info. will be added as it becomes available.
