Mermaid for a moment

Ever dreamed of being a mermaid (or merman)? Two Scottsdale resorts offer mermaid classes to make that dream come true for guests staying onsite.

Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
7575 E Princess Dr., Scottsdale
480-513-6014 or

Children ages 7-12 can flip their fins with Moon, the resort’s resident mermaid. Each 90-minute experience includes a monofin mermaid tail, tail tutorial, goggles, Mermaid University diploma (with chosen mermaid name), meet and greet with Moon and a copy of the book Moon Mermaid and the Treasure of Friendship. 8 am every Saturday this summer (available both Saturday and Sunday on holiday weekends). $180 per child; children must know how to swim and be accompanied by an adult.

The Phoenician
6000 E Camelback Road, Scottsdale
480-423-2572 or
Participants in the Aquamermaid School ages 7 and older will master various techniques and glide through The Phoenician’s sparkling pools with the help of a specifically designed, colorful tail and fin. For adults (“Mermen” included) the program provides an excellent alternative core workout, combining synchronized and monofin swimming. Classes are offered at $70 per person every Friday at 4 pm and 5 pm; and every Saturday and Sunday at 9 am and 10 am, through Sept 5. Reservations required.
