The Seattle Mermaid School

The Grand Opening is weeks away! 

The Seattle Mermaid School is the Pacific Northwest's exclusive portal to experiencing the underwater world of mermaids firsthand. 

The Seattle Mermaid School was founded by genuine professional mermaid and well known thought-leader to the community, Olive the Alchemist. The Alchemist has years of experience in a rigorous, professional-level role as a mermaid character performer with Walt Disney World Entertainment and competitive aquatic training beneath Olympic and Olympic Qualifying Athletes, including Michael Phelps.


As an Alchemist might, Olive has taken aspects of freediving, storytelling, animation, aquatic photography, entrepreneurship, and swimming then combined them into one magical discipline: Mermaiding. 

Whether you’re a parent looking to enroll your little guppy in their first lesson or a professional looking to train under an industry expert, The Seattle Mermaid School has skill-appropriate lessons available.

An inclusive range of tail sizes for adults and children are available to rent during lessons.
