Mermaid Trip to Egypt 2023

Mermaid Trip Egypt – September 2023

This Mermaid Trip is the greatest adventure for all water enthusiasts. Activities awaits you here, such as swimming in mermaid tails, underwater photo shoots, workshops on holding your breath and underwater modelling as well as boat trips. You also have a high chance of swimming with marine life such as manatees, guitar sharks, turtles and even dolphins. In addition, you can enjoy the facilities and food in the 5-star resort “Malikia”. Furthermore, there is of course enough time to relax. And while most tourists take home t-shirts and cheap airport jewellery as souvenirs, participants enrolled in this workshop will leave with custom photo and video content. What are you waiting for? Come with us to our Mermaid Week Egypt 2023 and look forward to an unforgettable mermaid trip.

Ultimate trip for mermaids and mermen

 

Who is the Mermaid Trip in Egypt for?

Basically, everyone is welcome at our mermaid trip who has a passion for the underwater world and wants to gain new experiences. From first timers to experienced pros and seasoned mermaids, this trip will not disappoint! We want to create a place and time where like-minded water lovers can meet and exchange, learn new things, have an unforgettable time and go home with breath-taking photos.

To take part in this mermaid trip, you must be able to swim well and safely. In addition, we recommend a general level of fitness, because swimming in the sea can be exhausting. No experience in freediving, scuba diving, mermaid swimming or underwater modelling is required. Our team will assist and guide every step of the way regardless of experience level.

Since we firmly believe that mermaids and mermen come in all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and genders, there are no visual criteria to meet. However, participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Photo Shoots and Underwater Shootings during the Mermaid Trip

In addition to the fun, the connection with nature, learning and the exchange of experiences, photo shoots are of course the focus of this trip. We would like to help you to expand your portfolio with mermaid and underwater modelling pictures. In order to achieve this, our experienced team is at your side at all times. Throughout the week you will receive tips and tricks for underwater posing and practise breath hold techniques. You will also get constant feedback on your posing in front of the camera. Because of this, we are sure that you will receive outstanding images. After the trip, you can choose your 10 favourite photos (and more if you want to purchase additional ones). Shortly afterwards, you will receive the fully edited, high-resolution version. You can then use these photos for private use and self-promotion, for example on social media or on your websites. Please note that a model release must be signed which allows us to use the photos too.

Can my partner come to the Mermaid Trip?

Of course, partners are very welcome at Mermaid Week Egypt. They can either take part in all activities or just join those that interest them. If your partner is not interested in photo shoots, he/she can still come with us. While we are shooting, he/she can go swimming or snorkelling, for example. Furthermore, both the diving centre and the hotel complex have other activities to offer.

Of course, partners also have the option of choosing 10 photos from the trip. They can also assign these to the participating partner.

Alternatively, your partner can arrive for the second week. This way you can fully concentrate on the activities offered during Mermaid Meek and plan the second week as you would like.

Information about Malikia Resort Abu Dabbab and the surrounding area

The Malikia Resort Abu Dabbab is an ideal hotel right on the beach in Marsa Alam. The shape of the hotel is similar to the bow of a ship sailing into the Red Sea from the front. In addition, the tip of the hotel perfectly rounds off the illusion of a luxurious cruise ship. With its impressive views, the sunsets of Marsa Alam provide the wonderful backdrop for this ever-shining, glittering luxury hotel that stretches over the mountains of magical Marsa Alam.

Marsa Alam is a modern natural paradise in Egypt with magnificent beaches that are home to the most magnificent coral reefs in Africa. The Malikia Resort Abu Dabbab offers direct access to a breath-taking beach with an exclusive restaurant and bar.
