Learn to be a mermaid
The first mermaid course in the UK!
Ever dreamed of swimming effortlessly underwater? Graceful, poised and elegant. Swimming among the fish without the aid of breathing apparatus, silent and at peace……. With a mermaid tail!!!!
As featured by MTV, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, The Metro and The Times.
With a FreediveUK mermaid course we will teach you how to become one with your inner Ariel through an intensive but fun course.
The courses revolve around learning to become comfortable under the water, whilst wearing a full, professional mermaid tail and fin.
Its not all about swimming in a straight line though, we teach you how to pose, move in 3 dimensions, swim with your eyes open and generally to remain looking good despite everything else!
LEVEL 1 – A one day course which gives a thorough introduction to the world of the Mermaid (or merman). Course starts with freediving theory and breath-hold training then followed by an afternoon of posture, swimming and posing training in a Mermaid Tail. All in a heated indoor pool. Mermaid Certificate included. Price £100 pp inc all kit, entry fees, lunch and FreediveUK mermaid certificate
LEVEL 2 – A 3 day course incorporating the AIDA 1-2* freediving course. This gives the student an incredible base of freediving skills over the first 2 days to work with before we start the mermaid skills (Day 1-2 you will not use mermaid tails). Day 3 is a full day dedicated to mermaid skills with the tail. AIDA and Mermaid Certificate included. For students who have previously completed an AIDA 1-2* course or equivalent we can offer just the last day of this course (@£100) as they already have the freediving skills to allow them to deal with the more advanced aspects of the course (please contact us if this is the case). Price £400 pp inc all kit, entry fees, lunch, AIDA accreditation and mermaid certificate
LEVEL 3 – A 4 day course to be conducted only in warm water. Students go through everything included in level 1 and 2 but are also taught to dive deep with a mermaid tail and to perform all their skills at depth putting them a step ahead of the rest. AIDA and Mermaid Certificate included. Conducted as part of our warm water holidays, next trip is Gozo– CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS ON GOZO
All courses are run with an accredited AIDA freediving instructor and our own resident Mermaid.
