Nakalay Reef is a perfect spot for learning to free dive or to practice your freediving skills.

Mermaid Diving

Mermaid diving is a variant of freediving and is a relatively new and upcoming trend. Mermaid diving utilizes monofin rather than regular freediving bi-fin as well decorative mermaid costume. Mermaid diving offers the same benefits as freediving but with added benefit of becoming a real-life mermaid! We currently offer the following mermaid diving products.
