Overall, the crew & boat were very good, thorough, engaging of the divers on board and very safety conscious. I would give this company a higher rating but their organization and efficiency of their trips is almost worse than a long layover at the airport. Five hours and fifteen minutes for 2, 45 minute morning dives with a ~40 minute... More

The owners, Wendy and Carlos, and the boat captain, Hubert, deserve special mention. Wendy is a great dive master. She keeps track of everyone, like a good Mom would, without hovering over you. She points out things of interest. When they pick you up in the morning, she's cheerful and is a great source of island information. Carlos gives a... More

Really helpful friendly staff. Fantastic easy dives for all experiences. Shame the huge Mr Moray wasn't too happy with us on one of the dives 😂 I did dive like a GIRL screaming underwater did entertain the other Divers 😂😂😂😂😂 Bob kept us all in order on his boat and our brilliant skipper just followed Bob's orders ( smallest dog

A buddy and I spent a week diving with the crew from Mermaids at the end of September. Carlos and Wendy were very friendly and run an organized outfit. The gear was in good condition, the boat was well equipped and the service was spot on. But the true gems of this outfit were the Dive Instructor Merrill and the... More

I cannot say enough good things about this company from the point of initial contact to finishing. Carlos was wonderful in getting everything set up for us to finish our scuba certification with his company that we started back at the states. Carlos made sure we had everything and every i was dotted. Our instructor was Merril. He was extremely... More

Carlos & Wendy organized & professional. Hebert, boat captain, friendly, energetic and happy guy! They were all fun! Dive master was boring, no passion for diving, forgot equipment, so we had to make a special stop. His briefings were boring, and he didn't point out anything on the dive. Sorry Wendy & Carlos, we will try a different shop if... More
