For non-qualified divers we offer an AIDA 1 Star, one day course to teach you important skills to ensure you are safe in the environmet we will be taking you. We run courses in North Wales, and Scotland.
  • To become an Apneists mermaid does require some knowledge (for your safety, and that of your colleges).

These are the same qualifications our performance freediving athletes would enter and it gives you a solid foundation in knowledge, confidence and technique.
