About Mariah

Mariah started diving in Atlanta and quickly fell in love with the water.  She continued her dive education at Australia Dive Academy in Byron Bay where completed her PADI Divemaster.


While there, she was discovered in the underwater world by noted Australian photographer Stewart Barry, and began freediving and underwater modeling during her training.


After returning to the states, she then moved to Key Largo where began working with underwater photographers and mermaids from around the state of florida. Now, an established mermaid, she dives in and around Key Largo and South Florida advocating for the reef, local business and charities, and sharing the joy and magic of the ocean with kids and adults that visit her home! 


If you visit, you may just see her swimming with the turtles!
