Saturday Swim Sessions - July 13th, 2019 - Merman Swim! 3 PM

We are proud and excited to offer a Swim Session specifically tailored to young mermen. We love celebrating representation and diversity in the mermaid community; together with Merman Jax, we built an event just for them!


When Mermaid Rachel suggested the idea of a Kids Swim, specifically to appeal to young mermen, Merman Jax dove at the idea! It can definitely be intimidating when the boys are surrounded by mermaids, grown and young. He is so happy to be a part a fun swim experience where little mermen can feel confident and relaxed with a grown merman by their side. He wants each child to feel unique, represented and included while having a great time. After all, King Triton is definitely someone to look up to! 

Swim with Merman Jax....

Merman Jax grew up in the cool waters of the San Francisco Bay, swimming among the kelp, seals and sharks. His father is an Irish Merrow & his mother a Filipino Sirena, so he loved the human diversity of the city. He was always so curious about humans as a merboy and is now so happy he now can spend time with them! He grew up hearing the legends of the Kings and Gods of the sea and loves teaching about the mythology of the oceans. 

.....and Merman Thommy!

image26

 Shello! Merman Thommy is from the lovely waters of the Pacific Ocean! He was separated from his pod at an early age and lost at sea. Luckily, he was able to make many wonderful sea creature friends throughout the years. As a way of showing thanks, he has made it his responsibility to protect and defend his waters from dangers that may come. He looks forward to swimming and sharing his Mer-mazing underwater world with new friends, so come out, and dive on in, for a swim you’ll never forget!!!
