Meet the Mermaids

ADEX 2016 is thrilled to have real-life mermaids performing at the event again! Visitors can see these mythical creatures come alive as they swim and perform in ADEX dive tank. They will also be at the ADEX pool where kids can meet and take photos with their favourite mermaids!


Here comes our Mermaids for ADEX 2016!

Dada Li (China)Dadali

There was a girl who got addicted to the feeling of freedom since her first free dive in the crystal blue ocean, which made her believe she was a mermaid in her previous life.

With this belief, she practiced almost every single day, making her own tail to realise the mermaid dream. Her name is Dada Li. She has been wandering within the blue, advancing to become an underwater model, as well as an AIDA international Freediving Instructor and Judge.

Dada Li will also be one of our ADEX 2016 speakers!


Joyce Ng (Hong Kong)


Joyce Ng started learning diving in 2011 in Phuket, Thailand. It was then that she got addicted to the sea and fell in love with underwater photography.

She currently lives in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia countries are her best choices to start her diving journey: Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Taiwan. She was attracted by the beauty of the tiny macro creatures, huge sea fans, fishes and sharks, which motivated her on getting great images of them. Every diving trip drives her to protect the ocean and she hopes that her photos will let non-divers see the beauty of the oceans, joining her in protecting them.

Underwater modeling expresses the beauty between humans and oceans, and Joyce Ng made the legend of the ocean come true by becoming a mermaid.

Joyce Ng will also be one of our ADEX 2016 speakers!
