Mermaid University Classes at SC-Carmel

Mermaid University classes at Carmel are two-hour one-day events. Mermaid University allows participants to experience swimming like a mermaid. Swimmers learn to wear the mermaid tail and monofin and swim in the dolphin motion of a mermaid.

This course is for swimmers who have not participated in any mermaid courses at SCSC. The first 15 minutes will be the Mermaid 101 course, where swimmers will learn the basics of swimming like a mermaid, water safety, & tail and fin care. Participants must complete a Mermaid Swim Test prior to the class. After completing the Mermaid 101 course, participants will spend 45 minutes to 1 hour learning how to swim in their mermaid tail, perform different mermaid skills, and playing fun mermaid games. The course will end with 15-30 minutes of free swim time.

Class Fees: $50 per participant (includes $10 non-refundable registration fee); $25 rental fee for tail and monofin (tails and monofins can also be purchased)

Length of Class: 2 hours, one time

Student/Teacher Ratio: 6 mermaids per 1 teacher

Equipment: All participants must wear a one-piece suit. We recommend goggles and a swim cap, to keep hair out of the face. Swimmers can rent a Fin Fun mermaid tail and monofin for this class. These are also available to purchase in our retail store and is highly recommended for anyone planning on continuing into advanced classes.
