Client Reviews

Diogo is an awesome swimming coach and fantastic with kids. My 4.5 yrs old son has shown remarkable improvement after only 7 sessions and always looks forward so much to his Swimming lessons with Diogo. He is patient, firm, and very knowledgeable in motivating and teaching swimming to children. Diogo conducts his lessons in such a fun way that my chatty little boy gets very engaged with minimal distractions. His sessions are very efficient yet very enjoyable, complemented with fun games. We feel so lucky to have found Diogo!

My child (8yo) had so much fun today at his first lesson with Diogo and he is really looking forward to his next one. Diogo is a fun, knowledgeable and patient swimming instructor based on what I could see. Highly recommended! I might even take my 3yo as well to take some lessons with him too.

Diogo is a wonderful teacher. The way he breaks down all of the parts of swimming and teaches them one at a time really helped me learn. I highly recommend him for lessons.

Great instructor for adults who want to learn. He is patient and makes you feel comfortable. It is easy to follow his instructions, he can strip it back if you are having difficulty and guide closely or leave you to practice while he keeps a watchful eye. Great balance of teaching.


I am visiting Vancouver and noticed Diogo giving lessons. He managed to accommodate me at short notice and I am so grateful. He corrected my breathing and stroke in one lesson. Now I am humming like a swimmer.

Diogo is gentle and patient. He imparts his knowledge easily and instills confidence as you learn.

I highly recommend Diogo. Obrigado.

Diogo is an amazing instructor. Definitely catred to my needs and started off with basic skills sets. He’s very knowledgeable and delivers the instructions in a very simple and basic way that’s very easy to understand and practice. Thank you Diogo. Look forward to our next session.

Diogo is very professional and friendly to the children. The children really enjoyed his classes. I could see that my child’s improvement after every class. My 4 year old learned how to swim within 10 classes of 30mins each. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn swimming.
