What will I Learn?

The PADI Mermaid course consists of knowledge development which supports at least two confined water (pool) skill development sessions. The course will cover the background and culture, primary safety considerations, equipment and basic water skills of mermaid diving. The course has two phases:

  • Independant knowledge development using  PADI Mermaiding eLearning (your instructor may conduct class sessions if not available in your language).
  • Two confined water sessions to learn and prepare for mermaiding, problem prevention and handling and the conduct of mermaid dives.                                                                                                  The session will include:
  • Performing a warm up, preparing equipment and donning correctly, demonstrating proper water entry and adjusting weighting to float comfortably on the surface.
  • Static Apnea-there is no minimum time needed. Experience the benefits of proper breathing techniques
  • Correct execution of a mermaid dive including proper breathing technique, duck dive, equalisation and a no-mask, straight line, dolphin kick swim without a mask.
  • Demonstrate proper mermaid rescue skills and buddy procedures.
  • Demonstrate proper exit technique and equipment aftercare.

What equipment will you use?

In the PADI  Mermaid course, you will use a monofin and mermaid tail, mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. Using gear designed specifically for mermaiding is best, however, in this programme, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own, it will be provided if not. Freediving equipment is usually suitable for mermaiding too.
