Billy and Sheena are spending their summer vacation with their uncle, Dr. Deep, and his assistant, Alexander DuBrow, on the sea lab boat, the Cassandra. Their anchored just off a tiny island called Ilandra, in the Caribbean Sea, searching for a mermaid that had been spotted by local fisherman.

When Billy takes a swim in the ocean, he is almost attacked by a shark. A beautiful mermaid saves him. Dr. Deep and Alexander throw out a net and catch the mermaid. The mermaid is put into a tank. Billy and Sheena befriend the mermaid.

I don’t recall ever reading this book when it was first released but I really enjoyed reading it now. It will make you think twice about swimming in the ocean.
