Mermaid Tails

Tails are provided for each participant in each class. The sizing of the tails provided are designed for children aged 9-13, however additional monofins will be on hand for any adults or younger children who don’t fit these sizes. 

Safety is our number one priority and therefore we only allow the use of our own tails, or preapproved tail brands in our classes.

Our tails are the safest available on the market:

  • They are made from breathable fabrics which won’t trap air

  • They have open ends for easy access to feet

  • They have a quick kick-off & swim out design

  • They have no straps or zippers, meaning feet come out easily

  • They are neutrally buoyant and won’t weigh you down

* To ensure everyone’s safety, an assessment of swimming ability is conducted prior to using a tail. These 6 essential swimming skills must be demonstrated: 

  • Float on back 

  • Float on front

  • Rolling front to back

  • Treading water for 1 minute

  • Swimming freestyle for 25 metres

  • Swimming dolphin kick for 25 metres
