Become a Merman' Freediving Course in Cornwall

Become a Merman' Freediving Course in Cornwall

£125.00 / ticket


Ever wanted to follow in the footsteps of Derek Zoolander and become a merman. The first of its kind in the UK, this freediving course with a twist is the closest it gets to being a real merman. The course is held in a heated pool, it's held by professional freediving tutors with years of experience and light snacks are included. Start with a class on freediving theory and breath-holding methods, followed by a lesson on posture, swimming and posing underwater. Then it's time don a merman tail and head underwater to put those newfound skills to the test. Glide gallantly through the water without the need of breathing apparatus and become a real merman - something to remember for a lifetime. At the end, take home a certificate as a memento.


One Saturday per month throughout the year, excluding the Christmas and New Year period.

Share the course with up to seven other budding mermaids, plus a qualified instructor.
