Cathedral City, CA, USA

Hi, I'm Tessa Rhodes, owner and Instructor here at Desert Aquaventures. I am a certified American Red Cross WSI (Water Safety Instructor). I specialize in helping children overcome their fear of water and have been teaching swimming, gymnastics and drama for over 10 years. Of the three, swimming is by far and away my most favorite to teach and it happens to be the most rewarding. As I see the progress my students make, I can't help but just love what I do.

About us

Desert Aquaventures is an American Red Cross authorized provider of aquatics training. It is the Valley's only year-round, indoor swim school offering lessons for ages 6 months to adult. Because our lessons are all indoors, we don't shut down for 6 months out of the year. Our pool is heated year-round to a comfortable 90 degrees. Young children will learn more quickly and retain more with the consistency and regularity of year-round lessons. Additionally, indoor lessons enhance concentration. There is no sun, wind, bugs or sunscreen to worry about.  No cancelled classes due to weather. All of our lessons are either private or semi-private. There will be no other swimmers during your lesson. We are located up in The Cove in Cathedral City, about one mile from Desert Cinemas.
