Fans of The Little Mermaid won’t have to look for Ursula to help them transform into their favorite sea sirens. At the Philippine Mermaid Swimming Academy, you can finally learn why it’s hotter under the water. With locations in Metro Manila, Cebu City and Boracay Island, adults and children alike can take a dip in a rented tail and learn all the basics of mermaid swimming, or “mermaiding” as they call it. Classes start at around $40 for a 2 hour session. As you progress through the lessons, you can graduate to ‘modern mermaiding’ where you experience swimming in the ocean with real sea creatures.
There’s a Mermaid Academy!
