Based at Victor Harbor R-7 School, Victor Harbor DE Aquatic Centre (VHAC) was the first in the state having been established in 1975.

VHAC serves both private and government schools statewide offering a range of aquatic programs to suit students in Years 6 through to 12.

Instructor-In-Charge, Shane Ellis and Assistant Instructor-In-Charge, Janette Rix coordinate the programmes which are conducted by a team of 25 or more qualified instructors.

Victor Harbor Aquatics is a totally mobile centre using a fleet of 18 trailers to transport equipment to venues, at times with 3 programs running at 3 locations simualtaneously!

Programs are conducted at various locations across the South Coast ranging from Encounter Lakes to South Lakes, Goolwa and the Coorong. Please note: Daily locations are dependent on client and safety needs.
