Are your 7-12 year old kids enjoying their swimming at the pool?

Why not extend their skill range and confidence in a safe and fun environment with the Banana Boat OceanKids – coming to a beach near you this summer.

The Banana Boat OceanKids is a 200m ocean swim which caters to children capable of swimming 200m or more in the pool. What better way to encourage your children to have fun and be safe in the ocean than being surrounded by their peers and inspiring life guards.
