Who Can Join Our Retreat and Mermaid School?

Have you always been enchanted by “The Little Mermaid”, “Splash” or “H2O – Just Add Water” and have an interest in fantasy and the seas? If so, our Retreat and Mermaid School in Mexico is the perfect fit for you! We aim to create a space where like-minded water enthusiasts can connect, learn new skills, and return home with breathtaking photos and videos.

To participate in our Retreat and Mermaid School, it’s essential that you can swim well and safely. We also recommend a basic level of fitness since swimming in mermaid tails and underwater modeling can be physically demanding.

Most of our underwater photo shoots will take place in shallow water. If the water does get deeper, you’ll have support at the surface, such as a safety person or a buoy to hold onto and rest. Therefore, you can feel at ease even if you have no experience in free diving, scuba diving, or mermaiding.

Because we firmly believe that mermaids and mermen come in all sizes, shapes, colors, age groups, and genders, there are no specific appearance requirements. However, participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a guardian.
