You may have already heard, but we have a new mermaid resident on the island. The Mermaid of Hilton Head (www.mermaidofhiltonhead.com) chose our island to help with conservational efforts since our wildlife is so rich here. The Mermaid of Hilton Head has published a children's book about sea turtle conservation and rumor has it more books are in the making.
She has also teamed up with Sea Monkeys Watersports from Hilton Head Harbor Marina to bring to life her Mermaid Encounter Boat Tours where she can be found swimming in the wild.
When she's not in (or on) the water, she can be found on the beaches of Hilton Head helping make your mermaid dreams come true. This is the first summer Hilton Head Island will have a mermaid photographer who will help you become a mermaid and get you photos of you or your little ones in a mermaid tail that you can treasure forever.
The mermaid's primary focus is conservation. She incorporates ocean conservation education into all aspects of her business. Let's be honest: is there anyone better to learn about the ocean from than a mermaid?
She will be making an appearance in the St. Patrick's Day parade on Hilton Head Island on March 12, 2017. You're not going to want to miss out on an opportunity to meet our local mermaid!
