Available select days in November, December and January–Hawks Cay Resort’s Mermaid Academy brings the mystical and magical creatures to life with mermaid tails and swimming lessons for kids
Have you ever wanted to swim like a mermaid? Think back to the 1980s when Splash was released and I bet you did. Or if you’re younger, maybe it was The Little Mermaid that got you thinking. Regardless, I think it’s safe to say that pretty much everyone 50 years old and under has probably thought about life as a mermaid.
Well, now kids of all ages (and those who are just young at heart) can see what it’s like to swim like a mermaid at Hawks Cay Resort’s Mermaid Academy. Available over Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 29, then again during the holiday break, on Dec. 26 and 27 and January 2 and 3, Hawks Cay Resort’s Mermaid Academy brings the mystical and magical creatures to life with new, affordable and comfortable mermaid tails and swimming lessons. The classes include the tail rental (or a shark fin for boys) and an hour-long mermaid swim lesson in one of the resort’s five swimming pools. A one-hour session with the mermaid tail is $25 and $15 with the shark fin.
Managed and created by the official Orlando-based Mermaid Academy, Hawks Cay’s school is a natural fit with the resort’s setting and family-friendly environment. Guests interested in dipping their tail in the water can call 305.289.4906 or visit www.hawkscay.com to make a reservation.
