Program is designed to make our client’s dreams come true! Our goal is to safely and effectively help participants create captivating and inspiring underwater imagery. We take time and care to interact with each participant so we may better understand each goals and wishes for their valuable time with us.
Program includes three knowledge review sessions, and two pool sessions (to a maximum of 5meters). One will be taught mermaid skills in our pool including (but not limited to) cramp removal, back float, back glide, duck dive, swimming underwater with no mask, and basic buddy procedures, equalisation, correct breathing technique, adjust weighting, dynamic apnea, dolphin kick, c shape turn, u shape turn, mermaid bubbles, proper equipment care, rescuing other mermaids, streamlining body position, and basic posing underwater.
In the 2 Open Water dives, participants will be given an orientation and brief entry/exit areas and techniques, potential hazards, safety procedures, the location of safety equipment and how to summon help. We will also be discussing the potentially hazardous wild life (if any) including what to watch for and avoid, and what to do if injured. Students will be oriented to environmentally friendly mermaid diving techniques and avoiding contact with sensitive organisms.
Participant will receive PADI Mermaid certification upon completion of the program.
