I have had the opportunity to dive at this site on one occasion and have dealt with the staff on dive related issues and questions for some time. My greatest respect comes from the fact that the owner and his wife are on site and accessible. I know this sounds trite, but in this day and age of get it... More

Some sites sport a cople of attractions, Mermet has them all. They are also a full service site offering equipment,... More

This is my first time diving at Mermet and of the quarries I have been to, this one is tops. While the water isn't super clear today, the water has easy access and I love the way they have marked all the underwater items, including rope guidelines from item to item with signage telling you what you are heading for....

Fun days are had at Mermet Springs! Rock to the music underwater while you swim the roped leads to the various underwater attractions, such as a school bus, the plane from US Marshalls (movie), a Cessna, motorcycle, ambulance, and so much more! Great times, and even snacks available. Learn to dive, or just discovery scuba and see if you like... More

Visited Mermet Springs as a detour to a wedding. It was the wife's first trip out since earning her C card. The facilities are excellent and the diving was top notch. We happened to be there on a Thursday and don't think there was more than 20 people diving. It never felt crowded in the water or in the prep... More

We came in during the week and scuba dived for two days. The staff was wonderful, friendly and always willing to help out. The facilities are well maintained, the visibility was good and we had a great time finding all of the items in the water. Bring your cold water gear, I can't remember my hands being so cold and...
