The course covers mermaid diving's background and culture, primary safety considerations, equipment and basic water skills.

To enroll in the PADI Basic Mermaid course, you must be at least eight years old. You need to be able to swim at least 25m/80ft without swim aids, able to float comfortably at the surface for at least 3 mins and in good physical health. No prior snorkeling, skin diving or freediving course completion is required.

The PADI Basic Mermaid course consists of two phases:

  • A confined water (pool or pool-like location) session to learn and practice basic mermaid diving skills, problem prevention and handling, and how to make mermaid dives
