He said it was the best day ever
We hired Mermaid Laura and Merman Lir to give Mer Lessons for my son's 7th birthday. The Merfriends helped arrange a discount with the indoor pool and brought an extra child's size tail for his sister to borrow. William was in mermaid heaven, so glad we chose the MerFriends!

Fun night on the Rooftop
MerFriends promptness and dependability eased my stress in planning a surprise for my daughter's birthday. Their appearance was quite a topic of conversation and they did not disappoint my anticipation! I would definitely recommend them! My son asked afterwards, "Why didn't I get a mermaid for my birthday?"

Outstanding Birthday Party
We booked MerFriends for a Little Mermaid birthday party for my 5 year old daughter at Emler Swim School. Our mermaid Kelly was outstanding along with her prince and pirate. Everyone had a great time and were amazed how realistic her mermaid tail was! Truly a special experience for our guests and birthday girl. Highly recommend this group. Professional and punctual as well.

Amazing experience!!!
Laura has made a lasting impression on my 3 year old daughter and her friends. She was very friendly and patient with the kids. She looks as real of a mermaid as the once you see on TV. Even the adults at the party where amazed. She gave a kids ride on her back, she sang songs, and they touched her tail, talked. She most definitely has made our party magical. She has even gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping us find a venue for our party. We would recommend her to anyone. Thank you for everything Laura, you Rock!!!

Thank you Mermaid Kelly for helping my little one get over her shyness & showing her how much fun it is to be a "mer-girl"! I have seen many children's' entertainers over the years - some great & others unfortunately who appear to just toss on a costume & wear a fake smile, but don't truly enjoy being around kids. I can tell that you are one who truly loves your job & enjoys working with children. You have a gift of kindness & gentleness. I wish you the best of luck with your career & know you will go far in this venture. Thank you again for making our little girl's dreams come true! The Merfriends are amazing! They are all so patient & gentle with young kids. The Pirates & Peter Pan have very realistic accents & are also great with kids of all ages - interacting with them, helping them play games, telling them about where they came from, etc. Meeting the Merfriends was a truly magical experience that my daughter will remember for a long, long time! Thank you for your hard work & professionalism to create these special memories.

Laura the Mermaid was a huge hit at my daughter's birthday party! All the kids gasped and couldn't believe there was a mermaid in the pool! The guests are still talking about the mermaid months later and my daughter asks about her anytime we get in the pool:)Mermaid Laura was so graceful in the water and spoke to each guest even taking pictures, much to their delight! My favorite thing was even though she entertained everyone she never forgot who the birthday girl was and spent lots of special one on one time with her. It made a huge impression and that little birthday girl smile said it all. Hooray for Mermaid Laura! I would highly recommend her for your next event!

We hosted our granddaughter's "Under the Sea" birthday party at our home. That day my husband had been on a business trip and drove straight from the airport. Talking to a guest, he glanced out the window and saw Mermaid Laura in the pool. Later he commented that even as a grown-up, "there's something magical about seeing a mermaid swimming in your pool!" The children ages 2-13 were all mesmerized by Mermaid Laura. She has mastered the graceful mermaid glide through the water. Weeks later in the pool our granddaughter is still calling out "meeee-maid where are yoooou?" We tell her Mermaid Laura is visiting other children on their special day. Most memorable party EVER! Mermaid Laura rocks!!

Dreams came true when she met the best swimming Ariel and Eric! Amazing expedited service!! By the grace of God, they were available the next afternoon! They were extremely fun energetic, and the best mermaids my daughter can dream of! The best part was the awesome video footage. They were a great team! Beautiful people who were knowledgeable and educational! My daughter wants to be just like Ariel and wants them at every birthday party! We are signing up for mermaid classes in the fall.

If you're looking for the best of the best in mermaid performances, you've found the right group! Their performers are well trained, professional and absolutely love what they do. If you've never had the pleasure of seeing a real life mermaid then now might be your chance!

Professional.      Believable.      Safe.
