About
At AquaMermaid School, dreams can come true, as human swimmers-adults and kids alike-transform into graceful mermaids with the help of artificial tails. Before they can glide through the water, though, students have to learn how to swim with the apparatus. During classes or parties, instructors progress from basic tail-swimming lessons to advanced techniques such as underwater choreography. Many times, a course or birthday bash will conclude with a photoshoot, so mermaids can immortalize their transformation. We also go on location upon request (if you have a pool at your hotel or house)

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
How to get there
  • Côte-des-Neiges • 6 min walk

Such a fun experience! Went here for my friends bachelorette party and it was so cool. More strenuous than I originally thought but we were able to stay in the shallow end for as much of it as we wanted. We were coming from the US and got stuck at the border longer than anticipated, so we ended up being a half an hour late and they were able to still give us the full hour we reserved which was so kind of them. Definitely recommend!

It's really a nice activity to try out with a bunch of friends! I wanted something fun and unique ; i've been served. I gotta admit that we all under-estimate the physical efforts that being a mermaid requires ! After my first time trying it I was sore from head to toes, so my best tip is : don't forget to stretch afterward !

I came to the mermaid school for my daughter's birthday, and we were quite upset by the quality of the experience. it cost us 60$ per person for the hour, and the girls didn't even spend a full half hour in the pool. the tails were too big for the girls. cheap fabric that was all ripped, the monofin kept falling off thier feet. The swimming instructor kept dragging the girls to the edge so that her assistant could fix those tails on. i'm freaking out because these are my kids that are in a risky situation that keeps happening over and over again. and THERE'S NO LIFEGUARD ON SITE. only 2 out of 6 girls were able to keep their tails on for the duration of the birthday swim. the girls were upset because they spent more time getting in and out of the water fixing their tails compared to actual swimming time. the locker room and showers were disgusting & filthy!! . one of the employees obviously had no swimming experience whatsoever and the manager insisted she teach my kids to swim, while putting the actually swimming instructor on the sidelines. i do not recommend this company to anyone.

My daughter Rose participated in your introduction class. She was delighted and cried having to leave at the end of the course. I also found the absolutely wonderful time ! The activities were varied and just great. You have been able to give attention to each little mermaids with great kindness. Rose certainly takes courses later in the year. I wish you much success and happiness in your business!

I dream about swimming like a mermaid since my childhood. When I heard about this class, I just HAD to try it. I started with the trial class. It was one hour long. You start by choosing from a selection of beautiful and sparkly mermaid tails make from monofins and spandex, but you cant put it on yet. The teacher starts with a warm-up on land, then a few laps. Then we learn the dolphin kick. Now the real magic begins and we put on our mermaid tails and swim like a fish! We finish with a few mer-games and are given time to take pictures. Oh, and the next day....you realize it was quite a workout!
I am now completely addicted and have been going every week since then. It is an awesome cross-training for a runner to boot!
