Mermaid club and school


We have an active mermaid club in Apneists UK, we can train you to freedive safely from scratch. The best way for a beginner to start would be to join the AIDA 2* Freediver course (£125) which is a recreational course. You would then move onto the mono fin clinic (£125) which will show you how to use this piece of equipment very well. This can all be done in the pool, or you can then develop your skills into open water by doing the AIDA 2* Open water section of the course (£150).



Mermaids in paradise



Most of what we do as a club is purely for fun and recreation. A recent trip to the Red Sea can be seen on this video below:

It is difficult to tell who is offering a decent level of training by looking at a website, but we do have a tradition at Apneists UK for training mermaids. Going back many years now, our original mermaid Mandy Buckley joined the club and improved her skills and became UK Mono Fin Record holder some years back. A tradition we have kept up with Rebecca Coales also getting National records through the club. There are a couple of videos below showing good female mono fin divers who have come through the club and gone on to do well in competitions. All of the pictures and videos on this page are club members and students through our system of training. If you have any queries please feel free to contact us at thanks.


Hope to see you at a meet soon

Freediving, when practised properly, is a very safe sport. However there are risks so always dive with the supervision of a QUALIFIED and competent buddy. Never hold your breath alone, even in water as shallow as your bath. Someone needs to be there who knows exactly what they are looking for and what to do in case of a blackout. A casual observer or even a lifeguard who hasn't been specifically trained in apnea would not be suitable.
