MHP Community Spotlight| Aqua Journeys Swim School

Aqua Journeys Blog Header

This is our first of many posts in our MHP Community Spotlight Series. Every month or so, we will be focusing on a different small business that we love. We at Meggan Harper Photography have a strong belief that small businesses should help each other out to survive and thrive.

Aqua Journeys is a swim school, but it is so much more than that. With an emphasis on infant survival, they teach children of all ages to be safe in and around the water. In Florida, this is of utmost importance. Their instructors are Certified and Insured Infant Survival Specialists who are dedicated to teaching your child the survival swimming skills needed to enjoy the water and give you peace of mind.



Meet Kathy, the owner of Aqua Journeys. Kathy has had a passion for infant survival swimming for over 20 years. She’s experienced, knowledgeable, and well-loved in our community.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Kathy in the studio recently. Check it out here:


The team at Aqua Journeys Swim School takes pride in their expertise in working with infants and small children and believes that they are saving lives, one child at a time. They form special relationships with both the students and their parents. Watching your child discover the joy of swimming is truly the most rewarding experience for all of them.
