Mermaid Kat is the only person in the world who swam with wild hammerhead and tiger sharks while wearing a mermaid tail.
Mermaid Kat is an environmentalist and ocean defender and uses her mermaid personality to create awareness for the oceans and creatures living in it.
In August 2012 Kat opened the world’s first mermaid school that made mermaiding accessible to everyone in Phuket, Thailand. At Mermaid Kat Academy she offers different mermaid classes for kids and adults in different levels. With many years of experience in working as a scuba diving and freediving instructor, Kat has a very good knowledge, skills and training to teach other people how to become a mermaid or merman in a safe and fun way. Her mermaid school is currently based in Germany and Perth, Western Australia.
Before Kat became a professional mermaid she worked as a fashion model for international modeling agencies. She was also crowned “Miss Germany International 2006” and “Queen of the world Germany 2007”. All her experiences of working in front of cameras helped her to develop high underwater modeling skills. These she teaches now to her mermaid and mermen students in her international mermaid workshops and events. Regular mermaid courses are held in Germany and Perth, Western Australia.
In April 2013 the Perth based mermaid opened her own online mermaid shop – the Mermaid Kat Shop. After using different kinds of mermaid tails in her mermaid classes, the scuba instructor decided to create her own high functional mermaid tail collection. She was tired of using bad quality mermaid tails which broke, rusted or hurt her students while swimming. As a freediver and underwater professional, Mermaid Kat wanted to develop mermaid tails that look realistic but can also be used for serious in and underwater activities. As a result she opened the Mermaid Kat Shop in April 2013. All mermaid tails at Mermaid Kat Shop include a professional freediving mono fin which is almost unbreakable. Two separate foot pockets stop the ankles rubbing against each other which can cause pain. Two heel straps allow you to adjust the size and make the fin fit perfectly to your feet.
