We teach you everything you need to know to become a real life mermaid. Start your mermaid adventure today!
The Mini Mermaid Course was designed for people who are new to mermaiding, no matter of age, size or gender.
The Mini Mermaid Course is about 90 minutes long. First there is a general briefing about mermaids, mermaid swimming and safety. You do your first exercises and stretching on land before it is time to get into your mermaid tail. After about 30 minutes you enter the water and it’s time to experience your first swim as a real life mermaid. Our mermaid trainers will teach you basic mermaid strokes, your first mermaid tricks and practice mermaid drills.
To join, you must be a confident swimmer. For children we recommend Austswim level 5/ StateSwim “Sharks” level or above.
*Price excludes pool entrance fee if required. If you don’t already own a mermaid tail from Mermaid Kat Shop you can rent one for a mere AU$10.
