Dove at Mermet this weekend and although the water was too chilly for my liking (Hey, it's only April after all), I was more than satisfied with my experience. Upon arriving I found that the I was wildly unprepared for the chilly water and it was heavily recommended that I rent some warmer gear. (thank heavens) After suiting up, Glen... More

I contacted Glen (one of the owners along with his wife PJ) late on the 17th, early on the 18th of March, to request a dive guide for Mermet Springs for the 22nd. Still recovering from jet lag from Korea I sent my e-mail close to midnight and within... More

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

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
