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

In the Professional Mermaid Workshop you will learn everything you need to know in order to become a real life mermaid or merman. It is also a great start, if you are dreaming about becoming a professional mermaid or merman.

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

Later you will practice new breathing techniques, relaxation and experience your first breath holds. After breathing, stretching and breath hold practice it is time to enter the water.

You will practice swimming in a mermaid tail, try some underwater model posing and do some basic mermaid rescue skills. Then it is 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.
