Mermaid Experience Class for my daughter

19-08-2016

Lexie really loved the class and the whole mermaid experience. She loved wearing the mermaid fin the best. Michaela was very professional, friendly and caring and put Lexie at ease straight away. The activities that the girls completed were fun and made Lexie feel like she was a real mermaid, while teaching her some fundamental strategies for her to be safe in the water. I would rate the whole experience a 9 for both Lexie and myself as a parent. Thank you for our lesson and we are planning to have another in the near future and have already recommended the lessons to friends.
