Elaina

I started freediving in 2015 on a trip to the Philippines and ever since then I've been hooked. I took courses in SSI, AIDA and Apnea Total before doing an internship in Panglao in the summer of 2019. Since then I've qualified as an SSI level 2 instructor, mermaid and marine ecology instructor before doing an AIDA crossover.

I am passionate about environmental awareness and as an ocean advocate I decided to combine freedive courses with educational programs for kids and founded the Eco Warrior Mermaid program. These programs aim to build awareness through art and underwater expression, and all of our diving and mermaiding courses incorporate eco-friendly practices. Mermaiding is a fun, freeing way of recreational diving with an elegant tail and colourful swimwear and it's all about having fun.

I'm currently living in Iceland studying coastal and marine management, and will be moving to Greenland shortly to map the seafloor and assess the sediments through a pollution analyses. Adaptation to cold water swimming/diving is another class I offer that incorporates breath holding and dealing with the shock of cold water, but be warned once you start with cold water immersion you won't be able to stop!
