Dana Marie Richardson, best known around the shoreline as Dana Mermaid, swims with sea life in oceans all over the world, including Hawaii, Tahiti, New Zealand and the Bahamas.
Dana also helps with humpback whale research in the winter time, and can free dive to 90 feet without a mask on a single breath of air.
She is a marine mammal naturalist, a boat captain, an underwater photographer and a professional MERMAID.
Residing in Kona, HI, Dana spends her time free diving with the dolphins and other marine mammals. Dana strives to learn as much as possible about these underwater mammals in order to protect them and their ocean home. By following her heart she is living her dream in Hawaii, and is now able to educate and inspire others through her true passion — Mermaiding.
