The PADI Mermaid Course
Embrace your inner Ariel with this fun new experience. The PADI Mermaid Course introduces simple mermaid activities in a shallow swimming pool at Sani Beach, designed as a flexible, informative and enjoyable experience centered on letting guests discover the life of swimming underwater, just as a mermaid does. After a safety session with the PADI Mermaid Instructor, the little mermaids will be given their tails and fins to begin their journey underwater.
During these lessons, the instructors will teach guests the basics of mermaid diving and how to swim in and under the water with their new tails and introduce them to the art of breath-holding mastered by most freedivers.
To enroll in a PADI Mermaid experience, guests must be at least six years old and comfortable in the water. No prior experience with snorkelling or diving is required to participate.
The PADI Mermaid Course is 90 minutes and starts from €160 per session.
The PADI Advanced Mermaid Course
Those looking for a more in-depth mermaid experience can enroll in the PADI Advanced Mermaid Course, which includes two introductory lessons. During these lessons, guests will be introduced to the art of mermaid swimming and will be guided by PADI mermaid instructors to learn all the skills needed to swim with fellow merfolk. Guests will be taught through the PADI Basic Mermaid eLearning before heading into the water.
Mermaids will be given the appropriate equipment to begin their water lessons, such as fins, mermaid tail & bikini, mask, and snorkel. In the Sani Beach pool, guests will learn and practice basic mermaid diving skills, problem prevention and handling, and how to make mermaid dives.
The new mermaids will be able to take home their new tails, fins and bikini to continue their lessons at home. Guests must be at least six years old to enroll in the PADI Advanced Mermaid course and need to be able to swim at least 25m/80ft without swim aids and able to float comfortably at the surface for at least 3 mins. No prior experience with diving is required to participate.
