Ready to learn what it means to be a mermaid? This introduction to monofin and synchronized swimming will transform you into a shining, graceful mermaid with the help of artificial tails complete with delicate, broad fins and colourful scales.

During the swimming lesson, you’ll learn techniques to glide through the water like a mermaid, propelling yourself forward using both legs as a mermaid tail and your core muscles. You’ll be surprised at the power and speed you can have using the mermaid's tail.

The Mermaid Swimming Class is a safe, fun, structured activity. Along with other aspiring mermaids, you’ll learn how to swim like a mermaid, while expressing yourself in a unique way.

Mermaid monofin: The monofin has a foot pocket with adjustable straps and is flexible to follow the wave movement of your body. The fabric is breathable and stretchy with a zipper on the side to allow quick and easy access for safe removal in the water.
