Walk the Plank & Swim with the Mermaids Packages: Walk the Plank (WTP) and Swim with the Mermaids (SWM) Birthday Packages can be confirmed with as little as 2 children (or 1 adult and 1 child) swimming. Children must be 6 years of age or older at the time of the party in order to swim with the fish/mermaids. For safety reasons we are limited as to the number of kids we can take into the tank. Adding additional swimmers after initial confirmation will be allowed only if space is available through the dive program. A signed waiver is required for each swimmer at check-in time. Swimmers without signed waivers will NOT be allowed to go in the tank and no refund will be given. Be aware that your party may be swimming in the tank with other swimmers that are not part of your party. Swim with the Mermaids parties begin at 12:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Walk the Plank Packages begin at 10:30am on Saturdays and Sundays.

Cancellation policy for WTP/SWM is 14 days prior to the party date. 50% of the WTP/SWM price will be charged to your credit card for cancelling off any child or swimmer from time of booking to 1 day prior to your party for any reason, including change of mind or “cold feet”. Substituting one swimmer for another is allowed but must be done through the Birthday Party Coordinator. No shows, “cold feet” or cancellations on the day of your party will be charged full price to your credit card as space has been held for you that could have been filled by other programs.
