But now, you actually can be paid to fulfill your Ariel fantasies.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that Weeki Wachee Springs State Park in Florida is hiring full-time mermaids. Since 1947, mermaids have been entertaining guests in their underwater theater, and they’re looking for new additions to the crew.
Auditions are January 13, but they’re no swim in the park. You’ll need to complete a timed, 300-yard endurance swim and tread water for 15 minutes. Potential fish-ladies then have to perform underwater ballet moves such as flips.
If you make the cut, you’ll perform in shows and entertain guests of all ages. Also be prepared for plenty of photo ops!
Behold the beauty of the mermaids below…and definitely give these guys a follow on Instagram.
But really…I’m down to move to Florida.
