Last year, we introduced you to mermaid workouts as a new fitness craze. The exercise included donning mermaid tails and swimming around in pools to work on your core, all while feeling a little like Ariel in your new attire. This year, adventurous swimmers can take their mermaid love to the next level by going on a trip specifically-designed for the water-dwelling creatures.

Travelers can book a trip through Sirenalia, a mermaid production company in Austin, and head to Belize. The Tropical Mermaid Retreat—an all-inclusive, ten-night trip—will take place from February 8-19 in both Tobacco Caye and Caye Caulker. Throughout the excursion, guests will have the chance to use their tails to swim in the Belize Barrier Reef while being shot by a professional photographer and participate in fitness activities such as mermaid-themed yoga classes and nighttime affairs.

Should you wish to get your own tail customized, Sirenalia can create exactly the look you’re imagining. Silicone mermaid tails begin at $2,000 and feature fin upgrades and special shell tops. Taking it one step further, those who wish to capture these moments on video can book a mermaid transformation shoot. The extra package includes a high-res underwater video and starts at $499 per person.

Along with all the mermaid-centric activities, guests will also get the opportunity to visit the local elementary school in Belize that will benefit from the event’s profits. The Ocean Academy, a local nonprofit, encourages children complete their education with an emphasis on environmental conservation. The Tropical Mermaid Retreat is priced at $2,500 per couple and includes on-island transportation, accommodations, professional underwater photography by Flashpool Productions and a gift bag. Sirenalia mermaid tails are also available for use if you’d rather leave yours at home or choose not to buy the custom fitting.
