Meet Mermaid Linden

With over 50 Million video views, 90K+ YouTube subscribers and a successful children’s ocean educational web series she produces called “Mermaid Minute,” Linden has carved her niche as a children’s “Ocean Edutainer” online and beyond. Her other passion is granting wishes to ill children through foundations like Make-a-Wish and Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity, in places as far from California as Scotland and Australia.

Linden quickly became the “Mermaid to the Stars” as she began performing in Hollywood in the early 2,000’s and accrued a list of celebrity clientele such as Jessica Alba, Justin Timberlake, Nathan Fillion, the Osbournes, and many others she’s not allowed to mention.
A skilled freediver and aquatic athlete, Linden can hold her breath for an astounding 5 minutes and 7 seconds, and freedive 115 feet down and back up on a single breath of air. She has done underwater modeling and pro in-water stunt doubling for films, TV and commercials and has appeared as a mermaid in feature films and many music videos.
In 2012, Mermaid Linden co-branded with Body Glove International to design her own signature line of monofins and swim products, which have been top-rated and sold in the world’s largest retailers including Wal-Mart and Amazon, making Linden a true “Entrepremermaid,” and creating access for everyone to have “Mermaid Abs” as she calls them! Featured alongside ocean legend Dr. Sylvia Earle in ELLE magazine for “The World’s Best Jobs” Linden has been profiled by ABC’s 20/20, Good Morning America, BuzzFeed, The Today Show, Discovery Shark Week, Inside Edition, NPR, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Huffington Post, Fast Company, Fortune, CNBC and Entertainment Weekly to name a few. Her story has compelled journalists from all over the world to cover her work in more than 30 languages and 80 countries.
A former PADI scuba model and avid underwater videographer, Linden has completed over 800 dives in her globetrotting escapades and has officiated countless freediving world records as an International Judge for AIDA since 2006. Linden has her B.A. in Film and Environmental Science from Emerson College in Boston, is a PADI Master SCUBA Diver, and has an 18-year background in ocean conservation and education through visual storytelling and live performance.
