Mermaid Classes

Mermaid Activities
Catalina Island, California

In Collaboration with Catalina Island Mermaids, we offer PADI Mermaid Classes and Mermaid Photoshoots on the beach. Book online!

PADI Discover Mermaid

The PADI Discover mermaid program will be offered Memorial Day – Labor Day and is a fun way to explore the water for the first time. After a safety briefing, students 6 years and older will join an PADI Mermaid Instructor in shallow water to learn safety techniques as well as how to dolphin-kick, turn, and float in a mermaid tail and a few fun bubble tricks. Participants wear a mask, snorkel, and mermaid tail (monofin) and groups are small at four people per instructor. The class requires no prior experience and takes about an hour to 90 minutes to complete.

Although PADI is well known for being a SCUBA training organization there is no SCUBA diving in this class. Mermaid swimming and freediving is what we do! If you would like to learn to SCUBA, we offer private SCUBA classes as well. Please text us to inquire: 801-699-9411

PADI Mermaid & Advanced Mermaid Bundle

Info Swimming Experience: Must know how to swim

This class begins with eLearning online, to be completed before the beginning of your class. You will receive an email link with an access code to that portion of the class. Once in Avalon, we will be beginning in a site with water shallow enough to stand, and deeper areas so you can practice in a controlled setting. After mastering your skills we will venture on Day 2 to Casino Point Dive Park to enjoy the scenic kelp forests and practice rescuing other mermaids! After class is over we spend time taking pictures and videos together and showing off our new Mermaid-Diving Skills!

Although PADI is well-known for being a SCUBA Instruction Organization, there is no SCUBA diving in this class. Mermaid-Freediving is what we do! If you would like to learn to SCUBA we offer that as well. Text me for details: 801-699-9411

Mermaid Photoshoot on the Beach

Enjoy a photo shoot in a beautiful mermaid tail by the water’s edge with a professional photographer! Perfect for families, couples (Her Captain, His Mermaid), Mommy & Me, Maternity/pregnancy announcements, Bachelorette Parties, and anyone with a sense of adventure!

A Mermaid Photoshoot includes an hour with an experienced photographer, a mermaid tail rental, and an online gallery with 6 edited images, as well as all of the RAW images. Mermaids have the option to upgrade to a “pro” mermaid tail that is larger and more realistic or add a shell bra/ shell crown if they wish. These photoshoots are land-based and although participants may get splashed, they do not enter the water. Mermaids can take as many “behind the scenes” photos and videos as they like with personal cameras or cell phones. Your friend/significant other is welcome to join us on the beach and observe your photoshoot.

If you have mobility challenges, please let us know prior to your arrival. We can choose a unique spot for your photoshoot based on your needs.

Sizes are available for children and adults up to size 28 women’s, or men’s XXXXL.

If availability is full, please TEXT TO BOOK as we still may have space for additional bookings!
