Swim Around the Sea in a Custom Made Mermaid Tail

Wanna-be mermaids take note, if you are looking to make a splash and have boat enthusiasts think they see mermaids, check out these functional mermaid tails!

I have to be completely honest for a second – when I first heard about this story, the first thing that popped into my head was Sebastian from The Little Mermaid singing “Under the Sea.” Just thought I would share that with you, because I am sure at least one of you had the same exact thing happen.

A Canadian based mother named Monika Naumann probably watched a lot of The Little Mermaid with her three daughters, as they were the inspiration for 3-Fins – a line of completely functional mermaid tails. Yes, you can swim while wearing these ones. They are available in a number of colors, including orange, blue, red, green, and fuchsia. First available on her Etsy website, they can now be ordered off of a website created just to sell these tails.

According to the website, the mermaid tails are made from high quality materials and can be used in not only pools, but also lakes and other bodies of water. They provide agility and speed in the water, much like regular flipper fins.

And just because I can, here are my parting words of wisdom:

“Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’
Full time to floatin’
Under the sea!”
