Linden Wolbert

Co-host

If you’re looking for a half-woman, half-fish, search no more! Linden has found herself surrounded by dozens of sharks at 50 feet down on a single breath – with no mask and no air tanks in the Bahamas, danced with manta rays at night in Hawaii, and been enveloped by millions of non-stinging golden jellyfish in Palau’s infamous Jellyfish Lake. She has dived with minke whales and mola mola fish in the pelagic open ocean, been dwarfed by aggregating whale sharks in the Caribbean and mingled with pods of dolphins and sea lions in the Sea of Cortez. She has been circled by 5 Great White Sharks while cage diving in Guadalupe….with a tail on, of course! All of these experiences are captured on film and video, which Linden shares in the form of mini-documentaries for children on her YouTube channel, in her Mermaid Minute series. She has done underwater modeling and pro in-water stunt doubling for films, TV and commercials and has appeared as a mermaid on TV, in feature films, and numerous commercials and music videos.
