Use of Mermaid Tails and Mono Fins 

The use of mermaid tails and mono fins are not permitted at any of Council's Swimming Centres. 

Please find below the risks associated with these fins: 

  • Dramatically increases the risk of drowning, shallow water blackout and hypoxia.
  • Binding the legs together reduces the ability to balance and support yourself.
  • Restrict movement of the legs; preventing children from using a freestyle kick which is most commonly used – especially in situations of distress.
  • Requires constant close 1 on 1 supervision which is cannot be sustained in busy aquatic centre.
  • Reported cases of children becoming stuck upside down
