You don’t need much equipment and the techniques used only taking a short time to learn, but it is worth learning the skills properly. This sport has become widely popular and is catered for worldwide.

  • To become an Apneists mermaid does require some knowledge (for your safety, and that of your colleges). As there is no such thing as a ‘mermaiding’ qualification (that is safe anyway), we offer an AIDA 2 Star Pool-Freediver course (£125) followed by the mono fin clinic (£125) which will train you to use the mono-fin proficiently. These are the same qualifications our performance freediving athletes would enter and it gives you a solid foundation in knowledge, confidence and technique.

    This certificate if for pool environment only and does not include Openwater diving. You can however continue the Openwater section of the AIDA 2 Star course if you so choose (£150).
  • The course will consist of a theory lecture to bring the student up to speed with current knowledge in this area, it will include some practical dry sessions, and then formation in the water for a static breath hold session under favourable conditions.

    We will look at training zones and how to plan ahead for training, describe and practice some useful exercises, give you an idea of many relaxation exercises to practice regularly and during your static apnea practices and look at diet and nutrition and what you can do to maximise your statics.

    We designed this course sometime ago, and it has benefitted previous students from the course.
  • Monofin Freediver Clinic


    Students will be introduced to different approaches to freediving with a Mono-fin, exercises designed to work on style and how to design a training program.

    Advanced techniques will be covered far beyond any current course syllabus. We will use video analysis to help improve stroke. Students do not have to own a mono before the clinic to benefit. All instructors/guest speakers are to be previous UK squad members and/or UK record holders. There will be a minimum of two, hopefully three depending on student numbers to keep ratios low.

    50% OFF if you do the course a second time for additional experience.
