Pricing Overview


Transparent Pricing

Personally, I don't like having to search a website from head to toe just to figure out how much something costs... and I absolutely cannot stand hidden fees. So, I have done my best to provide accurate, transparent, and easy to understand baseline pricing in the space provided below. However, please do be aware that I cannot possibly take into account all scenarios, and thus prices may differ from those listed in certain situations (extra gifts/goodies, extensive travel, elaborate skits, potentially hazardous environments, ect.). Always be sure to contact me via the email provided at the bottom of this page to get the most accurate pricing information and to discuss your event in more detail. Remember... all events are different and I want to make sure that you're getting what you're after!

***Prices shown are not final and reflect rates that apply to events within Leelanau, Grand Traverse, and Benzie Counties. Please contact me for pricing information for services outside of those locations as Travel Fees may incur.***

What's in the Pricing

While being a mermaid certainly is a lot of fun, make no mistake... it's not easy being a fish out of water! Silicone mermaid tails are not cheap to come by, and putting one on is quite the process. My tail weighs over 25 lbs, and takes me about 15+ minutes to wiggle into. And because my feet are bound together, I need the help of my handy-dandy merwrangling crew to carry me around and safely transport me to where I need to be. There is a lot of time, money, equipment, and helping hands required to do what I do, and it can be taxing on the bodies of both myself and those who carry me around. Mermaiding is hard work! 

But let's face it... the smiling faces and the memories made as a result of that hard work is absolutely priceless.

Meeting a mermaid is a unique experience for all ages, so don't think this whole "mermaiding" thing is just for the young ones!

Good For:

  • Birthday Parties
  • Public Events

What's Included:

*Special Notes: Beaches must not be extremely rocky, contain sharp or abrasive objects, or be subject to contamination. If conditions are not ideal, this can hurt the mermaid and damage the tail. 

If the weather does not cooperate or the state of the beach is unsafe, alternative "mermaid sighting" scenarios/options can be discussed.

If you would like Mermaid Phantom to share "Mermaid Treasures," or deliver a special gift/message in a bottle, then extra fees will apply based on the item(s) chosen. Swimming in a mermaid tail is not all too difficult, but keeping track of items does make it a bit more challenging!
