What to bring with you?
Mermaid essentials such as goggles, swimming cap (according to the pool), towel and a locker should be used. Mermaid tail rentals are included in all classes but are also available for purchase online if you want your own. We recommend bringing a pair of socks for children with smaller feet, as the monofin only comes in limited sizes.
