What you'll do
The service I provide is unique on the French Riviera: mermaiding (swimming with mermaid tails) combined with underwater portraits and/or videos. My guests can experience the feeling of being a mermaid/merman and will leave not only with great memories, but also with high-quality professional images. 1. We will meet in the free parking lot near Plage de la Garoupe, then head towards the rocky beach. 2. The activity is dedicated to guests (children/adults) who already know how to swim! It is not a swimming class, but an underwater photography session. In the first part of the activity, the guest will choose a mermaid tail that fits them well and I will explain and show how to use it. 3. If the guest enjoys the feeling and is comfortable with the mermaid tail underwater, we will explore different moves and poses. I will take photographs and/or videos. The session lasts approx. 30 minutes. 4. Since underwater images/videos require post-processing, the final footage will be later sent to the guests via my download platform. For safety reasons, I will only work with one child at a time underwater. Adult supervision from the shore is required at all times. For adults, multiple people can join at the same time, depending on the availability of suitable mermaid tails.
I am a certified professional photographer (since 2012) and former teacher and I have worked with both children and adults. I own a colorful collection of mermaid tails which I'm willing to share with my guests and I use professional photography equipment to create beautiful underwater souvenirs!

Where you'll be
I have chosen a rocky beach in order to have clear water and take sharp images (the water is rather turbulent on sandy beaches). This swimming spot has the largest free parking in the area and it's the main reason I've chosen it for the busy month of August.
Things to keep in mind
For a full refund, cancel at least 7 days before the experience is scheduled to start or within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Please note that the mermaiding experience and its outcome highly depends on many factors (weather conditions, water clarity, the guest's ability to pose underwater etc.) It might take you slightly out of your comfort zone, keep your heart open! :)
