For whom is the Retreat and Mermaid School suitable?

Absolutely everyone is invited to join our Retreat and Mermaid School! Embrace a shared love for the underwater world and a thirst for fresh experiences. Our aim is to cultivate a space where fellow water enthusiasts can forge connections, expand their knowledge, and depart with breathtaking photos and videos as souvenirs. To dive into this Mermaid Week, a strong swimming ability is a must, coupled with a confident demeanor in the water. Moreover, a basic level of fitness is advisable, given the demanding nature of swimming in mermaid tails.

Yet, prior expertise in freediving, scuba diving, or modeling is not a prerequisite. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro, everyone finds a place at our Merfolk Retreat. Tailoring our assistance to your individual proficiency, we stand by the belief that mermaids and mermen encompass diverse sizes, shapes, colors, ages, and genders, free from any rigid visual standards. However, participants under 18 years old must be accompanied by a legal guardian, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
