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 You’ll See & Do
Arrive at the beach. Take a deep breath. Smile! Your mermaid instructor has set up a place in the shade for you to go over some crucial mer-wisdom, get to know any mer~mates that may be joining you in your course, and do some breathing and stretching exercises. It is important to prepare the body and the mind before getting your fins wet!
Keep the calm you achieved during our warmups as we make way to the water for a confined water session. Take the skills you learned on land and practice breathing up for a dive in the water. Slip into your mermaid tail and dolphin-kick your way around the shallows with the support of a buddy as your instructor gives you pointers and inspiration. Learn different turns and the duck-dive technique to get you ready for what’s next!
Break-time! Relax, mermaid. You’re doing great! Sit on a comfy beach blanket and listen in to more mermaid knowledge review tips, tricks, and safety procedures.
Feel the warm sand between your toes as you head back to the water. Swim out to find a sweet spot to continue dives, turns, twists, bubbles and more! As you keep practicing you will find the line in your mind between fantasy and reality where the mermaid inside you lives. And you will learn to tap into it.
Sleep good tonight, mermaid. Tomorrow you really get the chance to show off your skills and gills as we dive even deeper into the beautiful blue.
Meet and greet again with your mer~mates and instructor before settling in for even more mer-wisdom. Remember the calm, tap into yourself, and breathe deep while stretching your body and relaxing your mind.
Take what you learned from yesterday a few feet deeper. Wave hello to beautiful fish as you swim gracefully over stunning local reefs. This is where you will really master mermaid safety and diving skills. Enjoy this time, mermaid, and relax into yourself. Practice makes mer-fect.
Put your fins up for a break. You’re doing great!
Head back to the deep end of the ocean to really show your instructor what you’ve learned in this course. Perform all of the mermaid moves with ease and be the best mer-buddy that you can be.
Surface from your last dive with a smile. You did it! The waters of the world await! Swim forth knowing that you are prepared for anything the mer world might splash in your direction!

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!
