Mermaid tails are amazing to use and swim with, but must always take every safety precaution first. Please do not purchase a mermaid tail if you or your child does not have any swimming experience, or is not a strong swimmer.
A monofin is a good place to start for those who have swimming experience, but not for non-swimmers. Please read the safety recommendations above and our checklist below to see if you are ready for a tail.
Swimming lessons are an important life skill – learn to swim first before purchasing a mermaid tail.
