"What people see is what they know; the more they see, the more they know. I hope to use my skills, knowledge and experience to help people get a better understanding of the ocean's inhabitants. Once you learn about an animal, you realize how vital each one is to the ecosystem and how gentle each creature is. Unfortunately, what people are most afraid of is what they hear in the media. Not many people have actual first-hand experience of what they hear. The unknown is more terrifying than the known. I hope I can help you explore the sea and learn more about the animals and their environment so that together, we can help protect the ocean and its inhabitants."
Mermaid Linda Stephanie has been educating, inspiring and entertaining children and adults as a mermaid entrepreneur since 2012. She has had many wildlife encounters including multiple shark, ray, dolphin, fish and turtle species. Her degree in Biology and Chemistry, her working knowledge of marine life and her passion for the oceans inspired her to create programs that educate others about the diversity of ocean's animals, the problems they face and about the role humans play in our global ecosystem.
These programs have influenced crowds in a fun and active way at parties and events in Hawaii. In addition to booked events, Mermaid Linda Stephanie opened the door for this message to spread by designing and handcrafting custom-made mermaid tails for children and adults.
Additionally, Mermaid Linda Stephanie has performed as a mermaid diver in public aquariums reaching depths of 30 feet for up to an hour at a time. With a working breath hold of one minute she has captured the attention of many with her grace, poise and agility underwater.
