undinekei-deactivated20120809 asked: Hi! I am a huge fan, and I am trying to get into mermaiding myself. The only problem is, I don't have a pool, and I am terrified of most sea creatures, because I had bad experiences snorkeling when I was like 9. I live in San Diego, so we get great whites a few hundred yards off shore every once and a while, and I am scared silly, but I want to mermaid so bad. What should I do??
You can mermaid swim in many public pools, lakes, rivers, and if you’re in the ocean just ease yourself into getting some photos at the waters edge by the surf. I understand your fear, we NEVER have great whites, and last year several were spotted and one accidentally killed. You can be a mermaid without swimming in shark infested waters! :D If you’re going to mermaid swim in the ocean, just dont go any deeper than you’re comfortable, and go with a group of others! I know from hearing from women like Hannah that our tails make us look very big to Sharks- often big or bigger than they are depending on your type of tail. She swam with great whites!
