We think more kids need tails, and it is our mission to make that happen. 

Dee Harmer (was Thorogood) owner and founder of MerKids ,The Underwater Studio and Fish 2 Water is never happier than when she is in the water. As a competitive swimmer growing up she soon realised that her passion for the water went far beyond the lane ropes and found a luring love for scuba diving. She travelled the world teaching and trying to stay underwater as long as possible. Picking up an underwater camera almost 20 years ago. 

Now with three children 16, 14 and 13 years old, Dee finds most days involve the water BUT she wouldn't have it any other way!.

Dee also holds a current STA Swim Teachers Safety Award, Swim England L2 Swimming Teacher Qualification, Beach Lifeguard, Open Water Swim Coach , PADI Scuba Instructor and Safeguarding Children Certificate.
