Hire a swimming mermaid performer for events

Mermaid swimming underwater

Our mermaid performer is available to make appearances at your pool party or waterside event.

Mermaid Isla has a swimmable mermaid tail with a monofin inserted. She is also an AIDA certified freediver who can hold her breath for minutes at a time, and swim lengths of the pool underwater, without coming up for air. She can swim with guests at a pool party, or perform for spectators without using any breathing equipment in a tank, aquarium or glass sided pool.

Please be aware, for appearances the pool you will have to supply a trained lifeguard and agree to our health and safety policy. For tanks or aquariums, the venue will have to provide an accompanying safety diver. We may require further cooperation from the event organiser and/or venue, depending on the nature of the event.

Swimming mermaid entertainment is suitable for grown up pool parties, hotel openings, hotel and resort entertainment, beach events, festivals, or special event days at aquariums, zoos and other tourist attractions.

Price on application. Bespoke packages are available for swimming events.

Not what you’re looking for? We also do swimming parties for children.

Safety first

Our professional mermaid has the following certifications to enable her to work safely with children in and out of the water:

  • RLSS NPLQ (Royal Life Saving Society National Pool Lifeguard Qualification)
  • AIDA Level 1 certified free diver
  • St John Ambulance Essential First Aid – all ages
  • DBS checked

Mermaid Isla has public liability insurance of up to £5M. We follow RLSS regulations at our pool parties and will only work with venues that have a trained lifeguard present at all times.

For safeguarding reasons, all children should be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times at events in the water or on dry land.

For swimming events where guests join Mermaid Isla in the pool, we request that young children are accompanied by a responsible adult in the water, at a ratio in accordance with RLSS guidelines:

  • All children aged between 0-4 years must be accompanied by an adult on a 1:1 ratio
  • All children aged between 4-8 years must be accompanied by an adult on a 2:1 ratio

When you book your pool party you will be given a copy of our complete Health and Safety Policy, which will explain what we require from you to ensure that your guests have a safe and enjoyable experience.
