Hello to my mermaid dream | @Boracay

I have always loved the beach, the sunset, the chill vibe by the ocean, but most likely because I love swimming in an open water, I love the feeling of being like a mermaid enjoying the ocean as it touches you, and the scenery underneath it.

I wanted to become a mermaid!!! —— figuratively speaking (I collect mermaid-y items and stuff *hahaha!) so when I planned for my Boracay trip, I knew that this activity shouldn’t be out of the itinerary.

I booked via The Philippine Mermaid Association thru it’s official Facebook Page. They do not allow walk-ins, so advance reservation is really needed.

So it’ll always be better to plan in advance so you can plot your activities for your trip as well

The mermaid classes cost P2,200 per person and a maximum of 6 students per session.It comes with the fin rental, the instructor and the real life mermaid swimming lesson and experience.

*Note : The activity isn’t only available in Boracay but also in Manila (just check the schools and location for the session)

That’s me struggling with my instructor @gwapamorena

So the day has arrived, I met with the instructor near Sea Wind resort, she was waiting patiently with the mermaid fin I requested in advance (they usually ask for your preferred color and size in advance — so you get to pick ahead of time)

We started with the short instructional lesson, the 4 mermaid swimming skills, the breathing, and the fins were handed over.

I was lucky that I was the only student at the time, it actually felt like a solo and one-on-one mermaid lesson *wink. After the stretching, I wore the mermaid fins and right away we started with the mermaid strokes.

Surprisingly, in as much as I love swimming in the ocean — wearing the mermaid fins was really far far harder than it looks like.  The strokes came in pretty much challenging but at least I got a taste of it for an hour.

I had some photos and snap before I end my session and sing my heart out with my favorite — Part of your world song from The Little Mermaid.

I was extremely happy for this activity, and it was really one on my bucket lists, so a checked to that.

Bucket list checked – Be a mermaid for a day! 

You see, childhood dreams would always be there but it’ll depends on us how to make it a reality. As simple as mine — being a mermaid for a day, the sense of fulfillment was incomparable.

I can’t keep my smiles down, I was really happy 🤩

So go for that funny childhood dream of yours, and make the most out of it.
