Rincon Diving and Snorkeling is definitely the place to go! My husband and I came to Puerto Rico for our honeymoon, and we booked many activities through Rincon Diving and Snorkeling. We went Snorkeling, scuba diving, and I did the PADI mermaid experience. Every one of these was so much fun! My instructor for the mermaid experience was Julia, and we had a blast! It was just me that morning, so it was personalized and so much fun! I loved living out my dream of being a mermaid.

What You’ll See & Do
The Discover Mermaid experience is a great way to tap into your inner mer and to see how it feels to submerge into the underwater world with a professional swimming tail and monofin.
Begin your introduction to the world of mermaiding with us in the beautiful waters of Rincon, Puerto Rico!
Your activity will start with a briefing from professional PADI Mermaid instructors. They will teach you about the essential mermaid equipment and how to use it. Having good equipment and knowing how to use it is a key element to mermaiding safely. You’ll then learn basic techniques such as how to breathe up for a dive to be able to stay under longer and how to safely return to floating after a swim.
Next, we’ll head to the water. Your instructor will be guiding you the whole way through and checking that you feel confident to proceed. Once you and your instructor are happy that you’ve mastered the basics you can splish and splash to your heart’s content!
At the end of the activity, you’ll be ready to decide whether you want to continue your mermaid journey and start the certification courses!

Previous Guest’s Experiences
My mermaid experience with Julia was magical. Her instruction on shore and in the water made me feel comfortable and safe. Swimming in the monofin requires a technique that Julia clearly explained and demonstrated. She was graceful and serene. I can’t wait to swim again with my mermaid teacher and improve my skills!
What little girl doesn’t want to see a mermaid or even become one? Julia made my childhood dreams come true. The way Julia taught was very calm and very detailed about the steps but also made me feel like a mermaid while doing so. I am so happy that I found the mermaid life!
