The MerFriends: Professional. Believable. Safe.
The MerFriends is a professional troupe of believable mermaids, mermen, fairies, and pirates. We appear at a variety of events, both swimming and dry, in provided water sources or in our large tanks. For dry events, we have our giant clam shell centered in our NeverLand lagoon, a perfect portable photo booth. Our events are completely customizable, and we offer a variety of packages and shows. We perform underwater ballets, above and below water safety programs, and a basic swim and smile appearance. Our merfolk read stories, play games, face paint, apply custom temporary tattoos, and entertain with singing and sword fights as well. We do have packages where swimmers of all ages can be transformed into merfolk complete with tail, accessories, hair, makeup, and professional photography and videography services.
All The MerFriends are certified in CPR/First Aid, Lifeguards, Water Safety Instructor, and SCUBA. Performers have also completed training in stage combat and stunts (with specialized training in swords), synchronized swimming, and vocal performance for those mermaid sing-a-longs.
The MerFriends launched The Mercademy in 2014. The Mercademy is an introductory training program for humans interested in becoming mermaids and mermen. Our most popular classes are those for adults, but our children's classes are also growing. We offer mini-mercademy sessions throughout the year, with a one week intensive Mercademy in June for professional MerFolk. The Mercademy:Transforming folks into merfolks.
Finally, The MerFriends launched their online store, The Merket, in April 2015. The Merket sells land apparel, promotional items, home decor, and specialty items. The only thing we DON'T sell is tails. The Merket, your place to purchase all things mer.
