This Philippine Academy Teaches Girls to Swim Like a Mermaid

The Philippine Mermaid Swimming Academy recently opened to teach people how to swim like a mermaid. Many young girls want to be mermaids and this academy makes those dreams come true. The academy celebrates the beauty, curiosity, grace and adventurous spirit of mermaids in the hopes of instilling these traits in young girls as well.

The academy sells and rents several colorful types of tails to help complete the transformation from a land to a sea creature. Since the transition can be a tricky one to get used to, the school offers courses like 'How to Wear and Care for the Mermaid Tail,' as well as other activities like mermaid snorkeling and scuba diving. In addition to the magic of being a mermaid for an afternoon, the school provides a fun way to stay fit.
