Las Vegas Mermaid School 

Mermaid school is back in Las Vegas. After a pandemic pause, Silverton Casino is bringing back Mermaid School this June for children ages 7 years to 12 years.  We had the opportunity to check out Mermaid School in October 2019 and can’t wait for more Las Vegas kids to experience it again starting this summer. 

Mermaid School Details

The Silverton will offer Mermaid School on Saturdays and Sundays starting June 2022.  The experience is 90 minutes and gives participants the opportunity to dive into the 117,000-gallon aquarium and swim alongside its famed mermaids and thousands of tropical fish, including our favorite pufferfish!

Mermaid School is $175

Each Session includes: 

  • All the gear you need, including goggles. Just bring a towel and a dry change of clothes.
  • Mermaid warm-up class (think yoga for mermaids)
  • A behind-the-scenes tour of the Silverton aquarium.
  • A swim in the tank with a mermaid tail and the famous Silverton Mermaids
  • A certificate of completion
  • Memories that last a lifetime

Mermaid School is currently scheduled to run the following weekends.

Mermaid School is 8:30am – 10am on select days.

Mermaid School can be booked online at silvertoncasino.com. For more information, please call (702) 263-7777.
