Weather Dependent
This lesson is subject to inclement weather. Please contact your tour provider with any questions about weather conditions.
What To Wear
Wear a comfortable swimsuit. Either a one or two piece is fine, but make sure it allows you to move freely, as in, no strapless bikini top.
Do I need to know how to swim?

Yes, all participants must be comfortable in the water and be able to swim at least 25 meters, tread water for 1 minute, and float on your front and back without assistance before swimming in a mermaid tail. Swimming in a tail is harder than swimming without one because your legs are literally strapped together.

Is mermaiding safe?

Your safety is the top priority, and the provider always has lifeguards on the pool deck and instructors in the water at all times. The classes take place in shallow water.

Can we take pictures or videos?

Please do! We leave time at the end of every class for free swimming and photos.
