We can host groups as small as 5, and if you're really popular, we can accommodate up to 20 of your family and friends! See our PARTY PAGE for more info.

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK? HOW FAR IN ADVANCE?
Spots do fill up closer to the date so if you're thinking about booking, don't hesitate!
We recommend booking at least 4 weeks in advance for a private party. If you are only a few people, then you should book at least 1-2 weeks in advance.
CAN I COME JOIN A CLASS WITH MY KIDS?
Yes, this is a great parent-kids activity! Book your spot in the kids class and just leave us a note in the comment section in your cart there will be an adult joining the group and we will prepare the proper equipment for you.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear a comfortable bathing suit (one or two pieces are good). Make sure it allows you to move freely, as in, no strapless bikini bra. Avoid eating a heavy meal 2 hours before practice. Tie up your hair to clear your face.
DO YOU PROVIDE ALL THE EQUIPMENT?
We supply the mermaid tails for all our activities. We recommend bringing an underwater camera, lock, towel, goggles, flip flops, etc.
CAN WE BRING OUR OWN MERMAID TAILS?
Yes, you are welcome to bring your own mermaid tails to the class. Even silicone tails are welcome. There is no discount if you bring your own tail.

WHAT IF I HAVE TO CANCEL? WHAT’S YOUR POLICY?
Please see our policy page HERE
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE?
The minimum age is 7 years old in order to wear the mermaid tails in our trial classes and parties.
We do offer mermaid entertainment parties for kids under 7. A mermaid will swim and play with the kids. Learn more about that HERE.
DO I HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO SWIM TO PARTICIPATE?
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. If you cannot do the minimum swimming listed above, we recommend taking regular swimming lessons until you're able to do it.
IS MERMAIDING SAFE?
Your safety is our team priority and we always have lifeguards on the pool deck and instructors in the water at all times. The classes take place in shallow water.
We require a minimum swimming ability of at least 25m and 1 minute of treading water unassisted in order to swim in the tails.
When wearing a mermaid tail, always ensure you swim with a buddy. Kids should always be supervised by an adult.
CAN PEOPLE COME AND JUST WATCH OR DO THEY HAVE TO PAY?
Friends and family are welcome to watch the class and take photos from the bleachers at no additional cost.
CAN GUYS DO IT?
All mermen, mermaids, sirens, & merfolk are welcome! We have a monofin that fits up to men's shoe size 11 (ladies 13).
