Mermaiding By The Sea: Holiday Workshops At Wylie’s Baths, Coogee


The popular Mermaiding By The Sea workshops are back in January 2019 at beautiful Wylies Baths.

This looks such a fun thing to do, a very unique ocean experience.

Michaela Werner, the chief mermaid, has been a competitive swimmer and a freediver. Now, as a mum of three, she’s encouraging people to try out a monofin and connect with the ocean mermaid-style.



During school holidays No Ripples runs full day workshops for junior mermaids.
