Who are The Salt Sirens?

Some women were born to be in the sea. While Disney movies have us believing mermaids crave two legs and a life of being landlocked, we wish for the opposite. The Salt Sirens are women who can be found surfing, diving (with a tank or without one), kitesurfing, paddling, and exploring wherever the ocean takes them.

The goal of The Salt Sirens is to be a source of information and inspiration during surface intervals. We want to share the best places to go, tips and techniques, and hear from the best saltwater athletes themselves. This is a global community-run website where readers are encouraged to submit stories of their own and share their favorite pieces of advice.

The Salt Sirens has welcomed contributors from all around the world ranging from Kenya to Taiwan to Malaysia to Canada to Fiji. The ocean connects us all!
