Mermaid in the Ocean Discovery Tank

Mahina the Mermaid went diving today in the Ocean Discovery tank at Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium. An accomplished free-diver, Mahina Mermaid can hold her breath for up to five minutes underwater!


Mahina Mermaid is in New Zealand to launch her mermaid swim range for girls, Oceanika MerFins, which will retail at Smith & Caughey. Mahina will also be in-store at Smith and Caughey's Queen Street branch on Friday 05 October between 11am-2pm and giving a mermaiding lesson at the Tepid Baths on Saturday 06 October at 3pm to those who purchase an Oceanika MerFin!

The Ocean Discovery tank is newly themed with relics and treasures, some of which are original artifacts from Kelly Tarlton's days as an ocean explorer!

Check out the video of Mahina and some of the exciting new exhibits at Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium here.
