Who is Mermaid Kat?

Mermaid Kat is a professional mermaid, mermaid trainer and underwater stunt woman based in Perth, Australia. She travels the world as an ambassador of the ocean and swims in her mermaid tails with creatures like dolphins, turtles, whales, manta rays and sharks to create awareness for the ocean environment. The professional mermaid also features in a huge number of movies, TV commercials and advertisement projects.

Everything started with the dream of

Turning into a mermaid

The professional Mermaid Kat found her enthusiasm for mermaids when she was 5 years old and watched Disney’s “The little Mermaid” for the first time. From that moment on she wanted to be a mermaid. Her father didn’t allow her to swim in a mermaid costume as he was afraid of her drowning. So Kat used to sit cross-legged for hours hoping her legs would turn into a mermaid’s tail one day. As this didn’t happen Kat stopped following that dream of becoming a real life mermaid for a while. At that point she had no idea that one day she would work as a professional mermaid.

Years later after the former “Miss Germany International 2006” became a scuba diving instructor, Kat remembered her childhood dream of turning into a real mermaid. She created her first mermaid tail and transformed into a real life mermaid. “Mermaid Kat” was born.  Kat practised her freediving skills and underwater movements. Now she is able to hold her breath for almost 4 minutes and freedives up to a depth of 20 m in her mermaid tail. Having years of experience in working as an international fashion model helped Kat to quickly develop expertise underwater modelling skills.

After a short time, Kat became a very successful full time professional mermaid

From Professional mermaid to

Underwater Model

With Kat’s skills and years of experience working as a fashion model and scuba diving instructor, she has become an internationally successful underwater model. Today she features advertising campaigns, tv commercials, magazines, catalogs, movies and music videos.

Mermaid Kat has always had a big heart for animals and the environment. Therefore she uses her mermaid personality to create awareness for our fragile underwater realm. She hopes that more people learn to appreciate nature and the environment and start protecting it before it is too late. She uses her mermaid character to show the people the beauty of the ocean while she swims alongside sea creatures like wild dolphins, rays, whales, crocodiles or tiger sharks.
