The Mertailor Fantasea Fin is the first stand-alone silicone monofin for fabric tails and… it’s a game changer. First of all, I don’t have a silicone tail…yet. Some readers might find that odd as I would consider myself a full-time mermaid. However, I am not ready to invest in a professional tail yet. Another story for another day BUT that makes the Fantasea fin perfect for me. I have been swimming in fabric tails for a few years now and love every one of them for different reasons, but it’s nice to take my mermaid game to the next level with silicone.
The Mertailor has come out with the Fantasea Fin Monofin so mermaids can have the look and feel of a silicone tail without spending thousands of dollars and waiting months to get it. You get the look of a silicone tail, but the comfort and fit of a fabric tail.
Fantasea fin Comfort
I want to start with the comfort level on this fin. It’s out of this world! Because it’s made of pure silicone, there are no sharp or stiff edges. You can honestly swim in this thing all day. It’s soft on your feet and ankles and from my experience won’t leave any blisters.
No uncomfortable plastic footholds!
This thing is 100% silicone so it’s super flexible in the water. It’s soft on your feet allowing for a longer swim time. The strapless approach is nice for a few reasons. I like that there is no need for adjusting when you are putting everything together. Nothing more frustrating than having your tail on, and the monofin (inside the tail) isn’t cooperating. I also like that nothing bulges or sticks out around the ankles making the mermaid experience blissful.
The silicone shape is sturdy yet flexible. The ankle straps are slightly stretchy but durable enough to be carried around by. Forwarning! It’s heavier than you would expect!
The fin moves so naturally in and out of the water. It makes my heart happy how realistic looking it is. Regular monofins are nice (don’t get me wrong) but they don’t bend as a fishtail would.
The attention to detail is what sets Mertailor apart from any other mermaid brand! Check out the scale pattern and the ridges on the fluke. The black monofin also has some glitter or sparkle in the silicone making it a midnight dream.

There is no discount on Fantasea Fin but if you get any of the fabric skin tails, use my discount code!
Overall, I think this is genius. It really bridges the gap between fabric and silicone tails. For those who want more than a fabric tail, but not ready to commit to a full silicone tail this is for you! It provides amazing photography in and out of the water and is super comfortable. It is more expensive than regular monofins but considering a full silicone tail is around $3,000 it’s a great deal.
