March is Ventura Mermaid Month. Mermaids fill a special place in the hearts of those in Ventura Harbor Village. All month long, visitors enjoy a variety of fun mermaid-related activities as well as special discounts on merchandise and food. Of course, all businesses and activities follow COVID-19 guidelines to keep the public safe. So, no Mermaid Meet & Greet this year, unfortunately. But there are still plenty of other fun things to see, do, and shop for all month long.

Ventura Mermaid Month 2021
Ventura Boat Rentals recently released their newest swan boat "flock" out onto harbor waters...just in time for Mermaid Month. Rent yourself one of these fun little boats and paddle your way around the harbor. Keep an eye out for mermaids and mermen along the way. These boats only operate on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Schedule an appointment by calling (805) 642-7753 before all of the spots are taken.
Take a selfie at the special Mermaid Photo Booth set up by local artist Michelle Rogers. This lively backdrop will only be available in March, starting this Friday, the 5th. You can find it by the Barefoot Boutique.
For those of you who like to explore, try your luck at the Mermaid Scavenger Hunt. Starting on March 12th, visit VenturaHarborVillage.com to find your clues and to download your scavenger sheet. Decipher all of the clues by March 28th to complete your sheet. Then, turn your completed sheet into the Mermaid Gallery for a special mermaid prize.
Wild Local Seafood is hosting a contest for Mermaid Month. They challenge you to share your favorite recipes for homemade seafood dishes for a chance to win a $50 gift card at their store. Simply follow @VenturaHarbor and @wildlocalseafoodco on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter. Then, upload your recipe (add a photo for bonus points). Make sure to tag Ventura Harbor and Wild Local Seafood when you do so you don't miss out on an entry. You also must tag two friends to qualify.
Several businesses offer fun discounts and special mermaid merchandise throughout March, too. When you visit The Greek, receive $5 off a seafood lunch entree when you purchase one at full price. Lost in Socks offers a 15% discount when you buy three pairs of socks any weekend in March. Receive a free swim bag when you purchase at least $50 in merchandise at Ventura Swimwear. Barefoot Boutique, Lemon & Lei, and the Treasure Cove all offer fun mermaid-inspired clothing, jewelry, and soaps.
Enjoy the outdoors this March. Visit the Harbor Village for Ventura Mermaid Month 2021.
