Swimming as a mermaid is one of the most graceful things you can do. You will find that much power exists within the single flick of your mermaid fin. Mermaid swimming is not only a fast and graceful way to explore the underwater world, but it is also great exercise.  Using the dolphin kick required when utilizing a monofin not only works nearly every muscle group in your legs but is also a great cardiovascular workout. If you like to swim for exercise, mermaid swimming brings a new, fun aspect to what can sometimes become a monotonous activity.

Mermaid Pod communities

Joining a “mermaid pod” is not only really fun but brings many new friendships. A mermaid pod is what you call a group of mermaids, and once you take your SSI Mermaid Training course, you will find that many mermaid pods meet up regularly all over the world! If you are looking for a new, fun activity to make new friends and travel to new, exciting places, mermaiding is for you!

grace and poise


With their long, beautiful tails, flowing hair, and undulating dolphin kicks, mermaids are one of the most graceful looking creatures in the water. Training to be a mermaid is a form of freediving where you will use a mer-fin and tail cover. Once you learn how to properly use your mertail in your SSI Mermaid Training program, you will be swimming with grace and poise underwater in no time. Mastering the art of swimming in mer-equipment is a rewarding challenge.
