Mermaids… to most, they're the subject of myth and legend, but at Aquarium Restaurant, we've got our own sea of mermaids!
Watch the mermaids swim amongst their sea life friends, all while teaching about the importance of taking care of our environment, during this 10-minute interactive show. Their family-friendly show is choreographed to music and is performed in our dining room aquarium tank.
Fun facts about what it takes to be a Mystic Mermaid.Our mermaids swim 3-6 shows per month.

The mermaids are not all scuba dive certified.
The water is a temperature of 78 degrees.
The mermaids free dive, with no weights, no underwater air supply and no goggles.
Salt water is impossible to see in, so the mermaids are trained to do their entire performance without clear vision!
