Mermaid Lessons with Mermaid Lila

Wriggle into a tail and join Maui’s top mermaid instructor for an undulating swim and underwater photo shoot. Weather-permitting, marine biologist Lila Jones holds classes in the large shallow bay off Wailea’s Makena Landing. Floaties and a swim platform help emerging mermaids adapt to moving in shimmering-scaled nylon monofins (not the heavier, custom-made silicon tails worn by professionals). When swells kick up, classes stay onshore in a dive-shop pool, where the clear water makes for spectacular action shots. “A mermaid experience is a very eco-conscious type of activity,” Jones notes. “There’s not much in terms of pollution, except exhaust from the car to get there. It’s a great way to learn about conservation while having fun and feeling glamorous.”
