This underwater themed mural covers all the walls of the swimming pool area at Mermaid Cove Swim School. It was painted in 2012 by Cathy Markham.
Although the club specialized in transforming young guests into “mermaids” it teaches swimming to persons of all ages, from toddlers to octogenarians. The theme of this multi walled mural was chosen by the business owners to illustrate being in an underwater Atlantis in the cooler and deeper Atlantic ocean. The mural includes mermaids, whales, a sting ray, jelly fish, a dolphin, sea turtles and numerous fish. A “pirate ship” play area is built into one corner of the pool area. The underwater theme is carried to the downstairs party area where the walls and ceiling give the appearance of being in a sunken ship. See the below photos for wall details.
