Introducing the New PADI Mermaid Program - PADI Pros

PADI is excited to announce the launch of the new PADI Mermaid program – designed to provide water-enthusiasts an additional outlet for exploring their underwater passion. With consumers showing a desire to imitate the underwater abilities of mythical mermaids, this is an excellent opportunity for PADI dive centres and resorts to attract and gain an entirely new customer base.

PADI Mermaid Program - Mermaids Underwater

The word “mermaid” in China roughly translates to “human fish”. In many Asian cultures like China, Japan, South Korea & Vietnam, the word “mermaid’ is not gender-specific and therefore, the words “man” or “woman” need to be added to specify to a particular gender.

The PADI Mermaid program is a stand-alone program like the PADI Freediver program, it doesn’t require scuba or freediver instructor ratings as an underlying certification.

The PADI Mermaid program consists of four student and three instructor level ratings –
