Sea Life Aquarium hosts swimming, diving mermaids for first time

CHARLOTTE — Ready to take a trip under the sea?

For the first time, Sea Life Aquarium will have swimming and diving mermaids beginning this weekend and continuing next Saturday and Sunday.

Guests are invited to come face-to-fin with real mermaids and get to see them on land and in the water.

Visitors will go through professional mermaid training with mermaids from the Circus Siren Pod, who were recently featured on Netflix’s “Merpeople” documentary.

In addition to the training, Mermaid meet-and-greets, makeovers, and selfies will be open to all guests. Another new addition is mermaid interviews where visitors will get to interview the mermaids above the aquarium’s ocean exhibit.
