SwimWays Sea Squirts Swim Assist Vest

Disclosure: The Swim Assist Vest pictured below was provided compliments of SwimWays!

Keeping my kids safe in the pool is something that is very, very important to me. I keep my eyes on them at all times, but because I only have two arms I can not be with in arms reach of all of them at the same time when we are in the water. Thankfully I am a Swimways ambassador and this summer they sent my kids Sea Squirts Swim Assist vests to help me out!

10449576_10203451594644778_1647424414_nThe Sea Squirts Swim Assist vests help to make learning to swim a bit more fun and exciting for kids! The vest is made of a neoprene outer shell and fabric liner for extreme comfort and zips closed with a very heavy duty zipper. The vest is super easy to get on and off and dries quickly in the sun.

10449576_10203451594644778_1647424414_nInside the back of the best there are three removable flotation pads for adjustable buoyancy as your child develops swimming confidence and skills. The flexible back fin easily folds flat so when break time comes, my kids can sit comfortably in a chair. While in the water the fun fin makes for hours and hours of shark-tastic fun!

10443714_10203451602404972_332996411_nBuy It: You can purchase the SwimWays Sea Squirts Swim Assist Vest in sizes small, medium and large for 29.99-34.99 from swimways.com!

Real Mom Reviews Disclosure


  1. theresa Harris says

    Love it . May be a lil uncomfy but safe for water rafting and etc..activity

  2. Megan Swinney says

    Love it !!! I would feel alot better with my kids wearing this to learn!

  3. This looks like it really does the job & keeps them safe. I will have to look into one. Thanks

  4. I love the idea and think there are a lot of drownings due to kids being unattended and it is difficult if you have other children,, These are a must have!!!

  5. Birdiebee says

    These look like very nice vests for kids. I have one grandchild who doesn’t know how to swim so this is a possibility for getting her a vest for her birthday. Thanks for the review.

  6. I like that you can remove some of the pads for adjustable buoyancy as the child gets more confident and skilled. Nice review!

  7. ellen beck says

    I like the idea of this vest but I wouldnt let this lull any parent into thinking they could leave a kid alone. This would be a great way for kids to gain confidence in the water though!

  8. Blessie Nelson says

    This is something which I as a parent would find it useful as well.

  9. angelia medlin says

    My son does not know how to swim yet, and I am always looking for a reliable floatation device to use on him while is in the pool with me or my husband. Thanks for the review on this one. Our top priority is keeping him safe.

  10. Terry Madden says

    Love this product making kids be more comfortable learning to swim.

  11. Betsy Barnes says

    This is a great product! When my son was younger, we did everything to keep him safe in the water. There wasn’t a lot of products like this, they have certainly made improvements, my son would have had a little more confidence when he was learning to swim 🙂

  12. I have something similar for my three year old son. It gives him confidence as he paddles around the pool and he barely notices when I adjust it as he’s become such a strong swimmer for his age. Great product!

  13. OH this would be so wonderful for Carter! With a pool…we swim alot. Carter uses a regular life vest, but I really like the features of this one! I love that it dries quick too…as so many days he goes in multiple times. I have to look into these! He would love the fin too!

  14. Nicole Dz says

    I love this. Very cool that the flotation pads are adjustable as your child gets better at swimming. Great product for kids learning to swim.

  15. My son is currently learning to swim more confidently and with more freedom. A vest like this would be wonderful and he would just love the added shark fin!

  16. This is so cool! Not only would my nephew love it because it looks so cool. My sister would love it because she would feel like he was just a little safer. Thanks for sharing this!

  17. Mary @leyn16 says

    I really like the whole idea of being hands free in the pool while the kids are safe wearing this vest! Its a must have during any season because we not only swim during summer time we also go swimming indoors during the winter season! Great review!

  18. jeevon kay says

    this looks flexible and comfortable to be worn by kids. my son is learning to swim now. would love to get this for him. thanks for the review

  19. Tiffany Schmidt says

    I’ve really started looking into swim vests, etc for my children. The floaties for just the arms make me worried, because a child’s face could still be held in water. The vest it seems, help keep chest and face out of water better.

  20. Jill Myrick says

    We purchased a vest like this for my son this summer.
    Even though my children aren’t allowed in the water without at least one adult present I felt so much safer with my son wearing this vest. And I am thrilled to know that it will fit him again next year.

  21. Tara Gauthier says

    I like that this can adapt as the child gets older. This looks like a great product!

  22. Melanie Comello says

    I have got to get one of these! It would make me feel much saver with my lil’ one and she would love it, because it’s not just a swim vest!
