The Mermaid Week in the Maldives will be the ultimate adventure for all mermaids, mermen, underwater models and photographers. From total beginners to professional mermaids, underwater models and photographers, everyone is welcome at our Mermaid Week. We invite you to become one with the ocean. Learn underwater techniques and explore your inner mermaid or merman. Learn from professionals and get amazing underwater photos.
What is the Mermaid Week?
The Waterworld Mermaid Week is a 7-day adventure trip in the Maldives. Participants will practice mermaid swimming movements, breath hold techniques and underwater modelling skills. Afterwards they will get into the amazing blue and crystal-clear waters for several underwater shoots. As a result, participants will receive outstanding photos and videos of themselves.
With a little bit of luck, the mermaids and mermen will get to swim with marine life such as manta rays, whale sharks and dolphins. The experience during the mermaid week will be the experience of a lifetime and an unforgettable mermaid dream come true.
Who will be the Mermaid Coach?
Katrin Gray aka Mermaid Kat is a professional mermaid, underwater stunt woman and mermaid instructor. The ocean activist swims with dolphins, whales, rays, sharks and crocodiles. At her mermaid school, Mermaid Kat Academy, over 7,000 students have already grown their mermaid tails. Additionally, Kat is a fully qualified and certified scuba and free diving instructor as well as a certified technical diver and cave diver.
Where will the Mermaid Week be held?
In Malé, the capitol of the Maldives, we will start our mermaid adventure. From here we will enter the luxury yacht and head out on sea. Onboard M. Y. Scubaspa Yang we will have plenty of time to get to know the other mermaids, mermen and crew. We will go to many beautiful dive sites and get to experience the underwater world like never before.
Will there be time to relax?
Of course, there will be plenty of time to relax, go scuba diving or snorkelling. Besides the mermaid workshop and underwater shoots, Scubaspa has a lot to offer. Start your day with a yoga session, get a massage in the 300 square meter big spa or relax in the jacuzzi.
