Mermaid Astarte loves blowing bubbles and sharing sparkles with her friends.
With a focus on water safety, Astarte is happy to swim with merfolk of all ages. As a longtime instructor with Aquamermaid International, she is proud to give group lessons or one-on-one guidance to mer-beginners. And as a former science teacher, Astarte LOVES sharing tips about hydrodynamics. Ask her the difference between fish and marine mammals; It’s a secret that she’s excited to share!

Above all else, Mermaid Astarte cares about human kindness and emotional safety. Mermaid Astarte is here for all merfolk, of any gender, race, culture, age, size, shape, ability, or experience. The magic of the deep belongs to everyone. All are welcomed in Astarte’s grotto. And in her heart.
