There are 12 pools on Sea Colony property usually available for swimming and relaxing. The two indoor pools at Freeman Fitness Center and Edgewater have hot tubs and saunas for guests 18 years and older to enjoy. All ocean pools and west side pools are heated. There are Kiddie pools located at Ocean Pool (OP) 3, OP4, OP5, Tennis Pool (T)1, T2, and T4. Aquatic Center T4 also has a 25-meter lap lane. Please note that swim diapers are not allowed in the main pool at T4. Adult swim may be requested at the top of each hour at all outdoor pools.
At this time, we are following the guidelines set by the State of Delaware and Sea Colony. Please use the hand sanitizer available at the entrance to the pool. The guidelines are:
• We are limiting occupancy in pools; admittance is first come, first served.
• All pools will be closed and disinfected approximately every 2 hours on the hour. All patrons must exit with their belongings prior to cleaning. See Pool Schedule for times.
• An orange flag flying by the entrance means the pool capacity is full. The area where the waiting line starts will be designated by an orange cone. If waiting is necessary, please respect social distancing and stay 6 feet from anyone not in your household.
• The baby pool is limited to one family at a time. If there is another family waiting, please be respectful and limit your time.
• Please practice social distancing guidelines at all times with anyone not in your household, including when you are in the water.
• It is suggested anyone older than 12 years wear a mask when not in the water; however, masks are not permitted while in the pool.
• Absolutely no reserving furniture at any time. Items left will be discarded.
HOURS OF OPERATION AND ADULT SWIMS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO
WEATHER CONDITIONS, POOL MAINTENANCE, AND SPECIAL EVENTS/ACTIVITIES.
