SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Visitors to San Diego are living out one of their childhood fantasies thanks to Airbnb Experiences, becoming a mermaid for the day.

"I think the transformation starts for some people as soon as they put on the tail and they really feel magical," said Shannon Subers, a mermaid photographer.

Subers says when she first transformed into a mermaid herself seven years ago, it helped her gain confidence.

"It's been helpful for me on my body positive journey, being more ok with my stomach, rolls wherever, because kids don't care you're a mermaid!" said Subers.

She was one of the first San Diegans to be accepted into the Airbnb Experiences San Diego market.

Clients get glammed up with a mini makeover, including your choice of seashell top, makeup, accessories, mermaid tail, and a keepsake shell hair clip.

The photoshoot is at sunset at La Jolla Shores and clients learn stories of the famous La Jolla sea caves and sea lions.

The package comes with the costume rental as well as 15-20 edited photos.

Subers has costumes for men and women of all ages, including children.

The mermaid experience starts at $85 a person. The premium upgrade with a more realistic looking tail is $105.
