Mermaid fins as with other toys, patrons who wish to use a mermaid fin must speak to the lifeguard on duty first. Lifeguards must ensure that the mermaid fin user is a strong swimmer and pass the following safety tests prior to use: swim 25 meters continuously, tread water for two minutes and swim with confidence while wearing the mermaid fin. The lifeguard will consider the how much activity there is in the pool and may test the person on the competence and expertise when using mermaid fins. The lifeguard can at any time refuse the use of any equipment.​

Do I need to clean after the party?

Parties are responsible for collecting all garbage/recycling, sweeping the area, and wiping the tables. Supplies will be provided. Space must be cleaned and vacated by the end of the booked time.
