Maui Mermaid Swim Lessons
If you’ve ever dreamt of becoming a mermaid in a tropical paradise, Maui is the place! With unique marine life, amazing underwater (and above water) scenery, and year-round warm weather and ocean temperatures, it’s the perfect place to spend a morning playing Ariel in the Pacific Ocean.
A newcomer to the vast array of Maui ocean tours, Hawaii Mermaid Adventures is ideal for all ages, especially those intrigued by the ocean and who want to see it from a new perspective.
All tours include a special mermaid swimming lesson, complete with swimming instruction highlighting the proper etiquette to take in the water and around Maui’s precious marine life. Certified instructors, who are all lifeguard/CPR certified as well as certified Marine Naturalists, will teach guests how to identify native Hawaiian fish species they’re likely to see once in the water.
In support of the principles outlined by the Hawaii Ecotourism Association, each tour will also include mini beach cleanups by the mermaid instructors, as well as information about popular ocean conservation issues and how to combat them.
After a brief land lesson and tail swimming instructions, guests will spend two hours in the ocean with their chosen mermaid instructor, diving below the surface and discovering why so many people flock to Maui for a variety of ocean experiences every year.
With convenient locations in popular areas of both south and west Maui, guests will be able to swim easily and safely from shore, enjoying excellent visibility, marine life, and plenty of space to spread out and practice swimming with their newly acquired mermaid tails!
While tours are encouraged for all ages, mermaids must be between 50 and 190 pounds. Males and females are welcomed, making it a great option for families and groups of friends.
Tours begin at 7:30 am prompt, ensuring the best chance for calm wind and water conditions.
With a maximum of 5 guests per mermaid instructor, guests will receive plenty of one-on-one instruction, as well as plenty of opportunities for great photos. Each lesson includes free high-quality photos, including both the digital and social media versions.
Mermaid tail color options include pink, green, blue, and black, and can even be purchased separately if so desired. Props such as hula hoops will be available for use, and a floating platform will be available for resting in between fun swimming sessions!
Whether you want to show your little ones the mermaid adventure of a lifetime or simply see the beauty of the ocean while playing dress-up with friends and family, Hawaii Mermaid Adventures offers a unique way to experience the ocean on Maui!
