Party Information

Do you dream of being a Mermaid? 

Born out of the love of swimming, mermaid parties are designed to teach participants to swim like mermaids or mermen while remaining safe in the water. You get to unleash your imagination as you learn to propel yourself through the water using a special fin and “skin” (aka mermaid tail), learn tricks like tail slaps, and have some plain old FUN! 

A Mermaid tail is like swimming in a single leg leotard: easy to find yourself in a situation that is difficult to get out of.  TC Mermaid will teach Mermaids and Mermen how to control the tail,  swim responsibly with other Mer-creatures, and “swim with the fishes”, all while having fun. 

All swimmers are monitored by owner Whitney Miller who is in the water (with her human feet) during class/party time to ensure the safety of every swimmer. 

No special equipment is needed: we supply the mermaid tails to use and you bring your swimsuit, goggles, towel, and hair ties. 

Swimmers MUST be 6 or over AND able to Float front and back for 10 seconds, tread for 20 seconds, and swim 15 yards, ALL in deep water and unassisted. NO FLOATIES OR LIFE JACKETS.
