  • What people have said about the Mermaid course:

    Getting certified by Kaz was an incredible experience! I wasn't sure if I was capable of completing it but she worked with me through every step, making the whole course calm and enjoyable. I learned so much more than I expected and loved every minute of it. Wherever you are on your mermaiding journey I can absolutely recommend Kaz as an instructor.
