Mermaid Lessons

Swim, splash your tail and flip your hair like Ariel! This summer, Mermaid Republic offers classes for keiki ages 3 and up, where they will be fitted with a tail and learn mermaid poses and postures. This 1.5-hour event ends with a snorkel in the lagoon among sea life and coral. Mermaid Republic also sells mermaid tails in eight vibrant colors, so you can practice your mermaid moves at home.
