Event Details

The Professional Mermaid Workshop is a full day course where you can turn your childhood dream into reality.

In the Professional Mermaid Workshop you learn everything you need to know to become a real life mermaid. It is also a great start if you are dreaming about becoming a professional mermaid and working as a mermaid yourself.

During the Professional Mermaid Workshop you’ll spend some time in the classroom. You’ll learn about different kinds of mermaid equipment, the right care for your mermaid tails, what it means to be an ambassador of the ocean, mermaiding and safety, equalization and freediving techniques to hold your breath longer than ever before. At the end of the theory part you will have a final exam.

Later you’ll learn and practice breathing techniques to be able to hold your breath longer. After the breathing, stretching and breath hold training it is time to enter the water.

You will practice swimming in a mermaid tail, try some underwater modeling and do some basic mermaid rescue skills. Then it’s time to test your new learned mermaid skills.

At the end of the Professional Mermaid Workshop you will get certified as a “Bronze”, “Silver” or “Gold Mermaid/Merman” depending on your skills.
