Mermaid Rayla is the East Coast's youngest multicultural mermaid! This world traveler has performed everywhere from Sea Life Park in Oahu, HI to the IX Art Park in Charlottesville, VA. With nothing less than a 5-star reputation, Rayla has been performing for over 5 years. Jellystone Park, The Aquarium of the Niagara and The Torpedo Factory have been some of her favorite venues. Sharks, Manta rays, Sea Turtles, Sea Lions and little ones are Rayla's favorite swimming mates!
We are affordable, flexible and bilingual! ¡ somos asequibles, flexibles y bilingües! Wir sind erschwinglich, flexibel und zweisprachig!
We met Mermaid Rayla at Jellystone Park this week and she was amazing. She is wonderful with the children, spending lots of time talking, telling stories, and swimming with them. Our daughter adored swimming with and talking to Rayla. If we lived closer we’d definitely book for birthday parties without a doubt. Mermaid Rayla if you see this, Lily says hello!
Response from Mermaid Rayla:
Awe! Thank you so so much! We do service most of the east coast, so if you are ever in need of a mermaid, just let me know !
I also post all public events on my FB! Aloha Lily!! ❤️🧜🏼♀️
Rayla is extremely professional and great with children! We had the honor of meeting her at the Niagara Falls Aquarium and despite the mishaps with the tank she took it upon herself to reach out to as many individuals to set up FaceTime calls to make up for the shortenings of the event. She has a great heart and I would highly recommend her!
Mermaid Rayla is a little mermaid with a big heart, beaming with positivity and professionalism. She was very responsive in our communications and a pleasure to work with. There really is no other fish (or mermaid) that we would love to work with in the future aside from Rayla. A great hit with kids and parents and adults alike!
Response from Mermaid Rayla:

I have been a professional mermaid for over five years and have since perfected my art. My range has now allowed me to branch out from mermaid performances to mermaid transformations. Allowing people of all shapes and sizes to have a glimpse of such a beautiful world that I have become a part of. It is my mission to continue to make dreams across the world come true with the help of some dreamers and a little diy flare.

Influences & Inspiration
As a mermaid performer, I was highly influenced by my previous boss Casey Thompson. She owns Storybook Entertainment Hawaii (the biggest character performance company in Hawaii). Her work and her teachings influenced me to start my own business in a similar fashion with a whole new twist (aquatic arts). Since then, I have been working to mold our company in that image.
Access to shade and cold water is required if performers are outside for more than 30 minutes.
A certified lifeguard is required for all swimming mermaid events. (Pool staff to count towards this requirement.) If you are unable to have a lifeguard on hand, an additional safety waiver is required to be signed.
There must be a ratio of 10:1 for children per adult in the water at all times not including any of our staff.
Children who are not able to swim must have flotation devices on whenever near the swimming area.
Always check with your local pool to make sure that they allow mermaids! There are a few that do not allow mermaid performers and a few others that simply require more information on my background.
Any events over 1 hour in duration must provide access to a restroom for our team.
