Founded from a vacation inspiration, Afro Mermaid is an aquatic themed corporation rooted in Black and African culture.
Offering products, services, and events, we're honored to have the privilege to build and positively transform a community of diverse water lovers.
In 2019, we wandered upon this beautiful mermaid store… grabbing everything possible and racing to check out. The realization came, that although beautiful, none of these mermaid finds depicted people of color, not one.
This disheartening truth brought the lack of ancestral diversity to light and now Afro Mermaid has risen to break this generational cycle.
Fast forward to 2023, not only do we aim for black and brown representation in aquatics but we also advocate for swim safety and ocean preservation through entertaining, teaching, and participating in monthly beach clean ups.
