A Florida state park is seeking some new employees with a highly specialized set of skills - that is, mermaid skills.
The park's underwater mermaid shows have been running since 1947 from the warm spring waters of the Weeki Wachee river.
"It's not easy what they do, and a lot of girls find that out", said John Athanason, pubic relations manager for the Weeki Wachee Springs State Park.
The first audition, which takes place January 13 at 4:30 p.m., involves treading water for 15 minutes and a timed 300-yard endurance swim with and against the river's currents.
Then there's another audition in which the aspiring mer-people must show they can do water ballet moves, like flips, without looking "panicky". Weeki Wachee has a unique system of air hoses that supply oxygen from an air compressor, making it seem as though the performers are truly mermaids that have spent their years living under the sea.
He said those who pass that portion of the audition will then be subject to a more traditional question-and-answer job interview.
Applicants must be at least 18 and available to work at least four days a week.
The family-oriented park is located about an hour north of Tampa and is considered the only one of its kind. There are now 17 performing mermaids and three princes.
