Sunset Key Cottages to Offer Private Mermaid Training

Families looking to travel to Florida this fall or winter should consider the Sunset Key Cottages. Starting September 1, the resort will be offering a new guest program: mermaid training. In partnership with the Southernmost Mermaid School in the Florida Keys, the resort will offer a private mermaid training program. 

The two-hour program begins with a custom mermaid tail fitting and includes a full hour of one-on-one training with a Southernmost Mermaid instructor, underwater treasure hunt, and a waterside tea party with mermaid folklore storytelling and certificate presentation. 

The program is available exclusively to Sunset Key guests, ages nine and older. Waterside parental supervision required for participants under 18 years old. The program starts at $500 (including the custom mermaid tail) for just a participant; the program for a parent and child starts at $700 and an additional $200 per additional child. A minimum 24-hour advance reservation required.
