Mermaids have landed on the shores of Maamutaa island and you’ll be able to spot them around the resort. But that’s not all… You can live your fantasea of becoming a mermaid too!
At Pullman Maldives we like to think outside the box and create unique experiences, that’s why we are excited to announce we are the first resort in the Maldives to offer the new PADI mermaid program to our guests. This is an exclusive opportunity to learn how to become a mermaid while you’re on vacation and get a certification too!
This is your unique opportunity to be one of the few people getting access to the recently launched new PADI program.
The PADI Mermaid program is a stand-alone program like the PADI Freediver program, but the good thing is that it doesn’t require you to have a scuba or freediver certification. This program is thought for the water-enthusiasts who are looking to explore their underwater passion by learning the abilities of mythical mermaids. Starting from little kids of 6 years old to women and men, this will be a unique experience.
The best part?
There are 4 different courses and levels you can choose from, starting from beginner to advance level.
