UK Mermaid Course

Add Cornwall, England to the list of places where you can learn to swim as a mermaid or merman.

"During the one-day course, students are first taught the same breathing techniques freedivers use, and then are taught how to dive using a full mermaid tail."

The course is presented by FreeDiveUK as a way of promoting freediving as a sport. Students must be at least 16 years old to participate in the course.

Deeper Blue has all the information, including a link to FreeDiveUK's web site.

Merfest Photos

Here is an article from Boing Boing that features NC Merfest 2015 photographs by Arthur Drooker. The article by Andrea James shows just a few of Mr. Drooker's photos. Click the 'mermaid convention' link in the first paragraph of the article to see more of the collection.

Don't miss the wedding photo: "The bride wore a shiny tail while the groom donned a tuxedo T-shirt and black swim trunks - attendees splashed their congratulations as the ceremony came to an end."

Merfolk do love splashing!
