Mermaid Courses

Be a Mermaid

Ever dreamed of being a mermaid? Swimming in a mermaid tail, peacefully amongst the aquatic wildlife without the aid of breathing apparatus, silently interacting as one of them…

Whats covered?

LEVEL 1

A 2 day introduction Pool based experience which gives you an AIDA** Pool /SSI Level 1 Pool/ PADI Freediver Pool certification too! The course starts with beginner freediving theory (online learning materials) followed by a theory overview with our Master Instructor, then a pool based practical session, including breath-hold, fining techniques, rescue and an exam, with international certification, this takes one day and will be done with fellow Beginner Freediving students.
To book the initial course simply choose Mermaid Level 1 and choose from the dates of our Beginner Freediving courses. Then on the last Tuesday evening of the month, (following your completion of the freediving Pool course), you will join me at no extra cost to work on mermaid posture, swimming techniques in a Mermaid monofin, in our Hertford Training pool. After that, you would be very welcome to join us on our monthly (payg) mermaid focus/freediving training session held in Hertford on the last Tuesday evening of each month, they allow use of monofins too! All freediving equipment and mermaid monofin included.

LEVEL 2



– A 2 or 3 day intensive Mermaid course incorporating your choice of either the AIDA** Pool & Depth/ SSI Level 1 Pool & Depth/ PADI Freediver Pool & Depth Freediving course and Exam.

This gives you an incredible base of essential freediving skills, firstly your online learning materials will be sent to you, to study prior to the start of your course. Then over the first day we begin with a theory overview, then pool based skills including breath-hold, fining techniques, rescue and then in the evening we hold a pool session focused purely on mermaiding in monofins and mermaid tails.
On the Second day we take part in the open water freediving session, which includes the beginner levels of depth training, equalisation techniques, depth rescue and the option to try out of our monofin too! This Mermaid course is ideally held over a Saturday and Sunday at a private pool and BnB in Somerset, Bath, UK - we would require a min of 2 students to run the course in Bath..

Please email to arrange a date, should you wish to have your course held in Bath.

Please do bring your own tail if you have one, that way we can help you with weighting and ways to improve on your fining techniques in the tail you are using. We will have a few monofins for you to try out too.
After that, you would be very welcome to join us on our monthly (payg) mermaid focus/freediving training session held in Hertford on the last Tuesday evening of each month, they allow use of monofins too!

Alternatively you can join any of our 2 day Beginner Freediving courses, (which includes all the above mentioned skills) and then complete the Mermaid session in our local training pool in Hertford on a Tuesday evening, following the completion of your Pool section/ Day 1.
The course would then run as follows; Day 1 Theory and Pool, Day 2 Depth or Mermaid and Day 3 Mermaid or Depth (note the mermaid section can be held before or after the Depth section) To book any of these options, you must book Mermaid Level 2 and select a date from any of our Beginner Freediving courses.

🌟Ocean Star Emporium🌟

After a year of research and production we are happy to present our first ever of its kind, the OCEAN STAR Monofin!.

Our aim was to address the typical problems found in mermaid monofins🤔. Firstly comfort🙌🏼, we have soft natural rubber footpockets with a neoprene lining on the inside top of the foot pocket, to insure long lasting comfort.🌟our foot-pockets are as minimal as can be, we have done away with bulky straps and there is no chunky heel of the foot pocket👏🏻. Custom foot pocket sizing in cm💡. Secondly performance🏊🏼, we wanted a monofin that has the energy of a mermaid tail🐬🐚 but the basic power of a pro monofin👌🏼. With the fibreglass blade and the unique rubber edging, we have created the perfect fin to use as is or under fabric tails.💎 This is our soft blade but we can make the blade medium or hard stiffness too.🐟🐬🐋 With this fin you could create your perfect tail.💙💫This is just the beginning of my journey75cm wide. +\-85cm heel to tips. Blade 35cm depth..
