Course Breakdown

Day One – SSI Mermaid:

On the first day, you will join the SSI Mermaid programme, which begins with a classroom session in Porthkerris where you’ll learn about the basics of mermaiding, including safety procedures and equipment handling.

This is followed by practical training in the pool, where you will develop your swimming techniques and become comfortable using the mermaid tail. The pool sessions are designed to increase your underwater confidence and help you maximise your mermaid experience.

Day Two – SSI Ocean Mermaid:

The second day is dedicated to the SSI Ocean Mermaid programme, which takes your skills to the next level with sessions held at the beach and in the sea at Porthkerris Cove. After a brief classroom review, you will head to the open water, where you’ll apply your mermaid skills in a natural environment.

This programme is weather-dependent, ensuring safe and enjoyable conditions for all participants. The open water sessions provide a unique opportunity to explore and experience the ocean as a mermaid, enhancing your comfort and proficiency in diverse underwater settings.

Location

  • Day One: Pool and classroom in Porthkerris; if weather permits, shallow water on the beach for skills, otherwise in the on-site pool.
  • Day Two: Open water with Porthkerris Dive Centre. In case of rough sea conditions (less common in summer), we will choose another local backup location.

Prerequisites

Participants must be comfortable swimmers in good health. You need to be able to swim 200m without stopping and to be able to fill in our prerequisite medical form. You can view this form in the FAQs on this page.
