  • Yes! We have done a number of events where the boys have been engaged the entire time. Everyone loves mermaids; despite gender, age, culture!

What is the mermaid concept?

  • Our mermaids take on a ‘mersona’ which is just like pretending to be a princess, superhero, etc. This mersona is essentially playing a unique mermaid character, with a backstory and all! This helps to make the experience more real and believable.
