Mermaid Instructor

About Our Instructor:

Before ever swimming in a tail, our mermaid instructor learned from our most locally familiar mermaids… the manatees. 

Jasmine has been guiding manatee tours since 2018, where she has spent plenty of time observing the nature of these gentle giants who have so much to teach us about how to be graceful, kind, mindful, and efficient swimmers as mermaids.

In 2019 Jasmine dreamt the brilliant idea to swim in a mermaid tail to promote awareness of the state of the Florida springs.
Shorty after looking into this dream, she discovered there is a whole community of merfolk who build connections and careers within the niche of being a mermaid.

Once she grew her own tail, the opportunities came flooding in:
From auditioning at Weeki Wachee, connecting with a pod of mermaid friends, to building a beginner’s mermaid course with Mertailor himself at Bird’s Underwater— this is only the beginning of the MERTASTIC potential there is for us here at our facility.

Jasmine (MerLady Jazz) now teaches classes multiple days a week to mermaids of all ages, colors, and sizes! She also makes aquatic appearances at the springs during our Mermaid Excursions!!

MerLady Jazz is trained in CRP, First Aid and Rescue, Snorkel Instruction, Freedive, and Mermaid Certification.

Classes

With 1 instructor per 4 students, we offer small, intimate classes to ensure the safety and imaginative fun that is possible in the underwater, mermaid world! 
With a list of prerequisites per each class, our students are offered multiple levels to achieve in their mermaid experience: 
  
  • Beginner’s Mermaid Certification Course— Here our fish learn the basics of how to swim with the monofin, how to safety release, don and remove a tail, how to care for your tails, and more! 
 
  • (1 on 1)— If your fish needs our instructor’s undivided attention, we offer a private mermaid class for the Beginner’s Mermaid Certification Course.         
 
(After the Beginner’s Mermaid Course completion , a card is issued to verify that your fish has completed and is SDI Mermaid Certified!)
