The Mermaid Cruise
This wonderful children’s adventure is back for a third year running with lots more enchanting fun and magic !
The story begins like any good story must, ‘Once upon a time’, there were two mermaids … then there’s a fun treasure hunt led by their on board characters Billy Bones the Pirate and the delightful Tinkerbell ! Then everyone to the front of the boat coz it’s time to spot the real live mermaids, normally we find them basking in the sun on the rocks at the gorgeous Blue Lagoon and if you shout loud enough you’ll have the chance to swim with them in the beautiful crystal clear safe waters of the lagoon …
There are a limited number of life jackets on board so I recommend you bring your own arm bands or flotation devices if you have them, oh and don’t worry there are life guards and a diving team on board for your added safety. The water in Blue Lagoon is crystal clear and the mermaids will swim off the rocks into the waters to the boat then entertain and interact with your children as they swim together and pose for photos both in the water and on the boat.
On the way back you can admire the rugged terrain, Captain Andreas pulls in and out of the caves, so close you have to push them off, check out delightful beaches and bays whilst for the children there’s a mini disco upstairs with face painting and glitter tattoos created by Tinkerbell on the lower deck for a small fee. They also provide snacks for the children.
The Mermaid Cruise sails every Saturday afternoon and the cruise lasts just over 2 hours. They meet at 4.45 pm on the pier, aka, Nissiotis Jetty, in Protaras … please note this is the meeting time and they set sail at 5 pm. Returning back on dry land at 7 pm’ish …
