Swim Lessons

The City’s goal is always to make the Plunge as safe as possible and provide a welcoming environment for the hundreds of patrons we serve each day. 

As new COVID-19 cases remain at alarming levels and the number of people hospitalized continue to increase, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a new temporary order effective November 30, 2020. The City of Culver City has issued a Public Order that mirrors the latest County Order.
