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!

Previous Guest’s Experiences
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 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!
