Welcome to my grotto where I help make aspiring merfolk's dreams come true.
At lagoons across the cove of Hertfordshire mermaids and mermen get the chance to wear a swimmable tail and use their skills and imagination to explore the merkingdom.
I often wonder if I lived in the sea in a former life! My Grandma taught me to swim when I was 3, I have competed at International level and ventured into open water including a marathon swim. Iam a qualified level 2 swimming teacher with 5 years of experience, holder of a safety and safegarding award for teachers, enhanced DBS and a Mermaids UK instructor. Plus I adore dolphins! I have two daughters who have watched countless girls turn into mermaids on youtube and netflix and wanted to make it possible for them too. Swimming in a tail is quite simply liberating and I am excited to be helping others try it!
All aspiring merfolk must be age 6+ and competent swimmers. Before their transformation they must be able to demonstrate the following human swimming skills: comfortable 25m front crawl unaided, tread water in the deep, happy with self-submersion and dolphin kick for 5m.
I always endeavour to deliver a safe, structured, shimmering adventure
