I know, you are probably asking why do I have this kind of post on my blog LOL. I’ve been getting a lot of queries from my readers about where to get this Mermaid Swimming Lessons so I decided to research and post about it, after all, it is also one of the reasons why tourists are visiting Manila, Cebu and Boracay.

This kind of swimming lessons are now popular with kids who are truly hooked in watching various Mermaid themed TV Series available in local TV Stations. Unlike normal swimming classes, Mermaid swimmers use skin-tight suits and plexi-glass mono-tails to slice through the water. In Cebu, one of the pioneer in providing Mermaid Swimming Lessons is Ocean Gems Academy.

It was in 2012 when Gadie appeared the first time as a mermaid. A lot of people asked her how to act and swim like a Mermaid and that where she gets the idea for establishing a Mermaid Swimming Academy.

Now everyone can learn how to become a Mermaid with the help of Mermaid Gadie Barro. Gadie is an experienced freediver since 2011 and she won in a Freediving competition in 2012. As the first Mermaid Instructor in Cebu, she wants to help in raising awareness on how we can protect our oceans.
