Making a Splash with a Professional Mermaid in The Great Lakes

Boaters, kayakers and beachgoers are typically what you’ll find when you visit any lake in Michigan, but have you ever wondered if anything was lurking below?

“I think it’s only fair that the Great Lakes have a mermaid too,” says Brittany Adams. Brittany A.K.A. Mermaid Phantom is a professional mermaid who travels the world and calls Northern Michigan home. “Everybody thought I was crazy but it felt like the right thing to do and it’s the best decision I’ve made in my entire life,” says Mermaid Phantom.

So what is it like swimming in the Great Lakes for hours?  “You can’t really see, there’s not much to hear, you can’t smell anything – I hope you’re not tasting anything and the only thing you can feel is the sunshine on your back or the coolness of the water,” says Mermaid Phantom.

You can make this childhood dream a reality no matter your age, size or gender with Traverse City Mermaid! Whitney Miller is a swim coach and is helping share the magic of being a mermaid with all of Northern Michigan. She does mermaid swim parties (birthday, bachelorette, etc.) and also offers private lessons!
