Service Description

Delve into the history of mermaiding and collect your PADI Basic Mermaid Certification with The Seattle Mermaid School. This class is taught on land (1 hour) and in the pool (2 hour). Join us for an educational session detailing the founding and growth of the professional mermaid industry, then try it yourself! Explore proper pre-dive procedures featuring safe swim gear prep, logic behind mermaid costume selection, and chat with a seasoned professional about makeup application techniques for aquatic performance. Then, you will meet your instructor at the pool. In water students will gain comfort in a mermaid fin and be introduced to safe breathing and motion exercises under the watchful eye of our Mermaid Instructors. Once complete, students will collect a world-recognized water safety and freediving certification specialized to mermaid performance.
