Mermaid Lila
Professional Mermaid and On Maui, Hawaii



I've had a profound connection to the ocean ever since I was a child.

It's led me to pursue a career in marine biology and put me in touch with the mystical aspects of the water and her creatures. I now share the many things I’ve learned with children of all ages. Being a mermaid incorporates a lot of light-hearted play but also allows us to uncover the amazing Magic that hides within our depths.



I have been in love with the ocean ever since i was a child. This passion led me to earn my B.S in Marine Biology from Hawai’i Pacific University in 2013. Upon graduating I worked in Alaska as a Fisheries Observer in the Bering Sea. Unsatisfied with that position, I returned to Maui to share the beauty of the reefs as a professional mermaid.
