What is Mermaiding?

Mermaid diving is a world with one foot in reality and the other in fantasy. Mermaid lore originated centuries ago, yet even today, the myths tickle our imaginations. Water lovers, young and old, fantasize about living as mermaids – but unlike most such fantasies, this one we can make real – well, almost real. Mermaid equipment and costuming let us bridge fiction and fact, opening the door to this mystical culture through mermaid diving.

The PADI Mermaid Program is designed to be a rewarding and fun experience, suited to anyone with an interest in mermaid diving and basic swimming abilities. Although this experience shares techniques and equipment used in scuba and freediving, mermaid diving (or ‘mermaiding’) is its own form of diving. The PADI Mermaid Program is designed for non-divers and divers alike, as you don’t need any prior knowledge to enroll

The Discover Mermaid™ experience introduces simple mermaid activities in confined water (i.e., a pool or place with pool-like conditions), shallow enough in which to stand. It is designed as a flexible, informative, enjoyable, and controlled experience centered on letting you discover what it's like to mermaid dive.

To enroll in a Discover Mermaid experience, you must be at least 12 years old. You need to be in good physical health, know how to swim and be comfortable in the water. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required.

*Minimum of 2 students required for class

Private classes available at $250 pp for ages 8 and up.


The PADI Discover Mermaid experience consists of two introductory phases:

  • Prior to your pool session you will listen to a briefing from your PADI Mermaid Instructor to learn the basics about being a mermaid.
  • A shallow water session in which you'll wear a mermaid tail (and depending on the situation, perhaps other additional mermaid costuming) followed by mermaid swimming, going underwater and games.
