How did this Mermaid Course come about?
The Basics Mermaiding Course and it’s structure was originally created by the professional Mermaid Kat, who is also a fully trained scuba diving instructor, freediving instructor and underwater stuntwoman. The professional mermaid opened her mermaid school (Mermaid Kat Academy) back in August 2012. As a result, she was one of the first people in the world, who made mermaiding assessable to the public. Since then, more than 10,000 mermaids and mermen have participated in her mermaiding courses.
