A pioneer of the global mermaid movement and passionate advocate for ocean conservation issues, Mahina’s story is inspirational with a quotient of magic.
One of the worlds first professional mermaids in 2004; two years later, Mahina’s Original 2006 eco-friendly MerFin designs were the first of their kind in the world.
The MerFin provides an authentic feeling of swimming with a sense of fluidity, freedom and connection with oneself when entering the water whilst simultaneously encouraging a spirit of connection, care and responsibility toward the ocean in return.
Brainchild of MerDive Watersport & MerGirl Ocean Lifestyle Culture ~ A culture that Empowers She to Protect the Sea; Mahina believes the more women are in the water; the more powerful the engagement is in the holistic and wellbeing attitudes and cultures that surround it and emerge from it; on personal, social and environmental levels.
“While out there exploring, my hope is that all of your senses are enlivened by the natural gifts of the world around you; As we revel in nature’s playgrounds; we find a natural response of love, care and respect for our living planet and all the creatures that belong here..”
