Let's face it, you have always wanted to be a mermaid, swimming around with your tail and breathing water like a fish... It's nice to dream. But guess what? You don't have to dream about being a beautiful creature of the sea any more thanks to Aqua Mermaid, a South Florida swimming school that specializes in making real-life mermaids.
Okay, so they can not actually make you grow a tail or gills (they would definitely be more than just swimming instructors if they could do that), but they can still make you look like a mermaid and teach you how to swim like one.
According to their website, during your 60-minute aqua class, you will get familiar with how to swim with a tail (rent or bring your own), learn different swimming and breathing techniques, and have plenty of time for photo ops (after all, how else will everyone know you are a mermaid if you don't take pictures as proof?).
Anyone of any age - and gender - is invited to take a class. One mermaid brought her merman along for a couples session:
