Great experience, very friendly and smiling all the time. Even made us free underwater photos:) We went on three dives, one was a wreck on 36 m, especially sunken to become artificial reef.

Dive center Merlin, oh boy what can I not say about these incredible guys... I mean seriously it would be shorter if I could say anything bad but there wasn’t anything. From a discover dive experience 2 years ago with Bernie to this vacation that mind you we booked (instead of Jamaica) just to come back to them and do our open water certificate. Every person there welcomed us everyday with a very happy good morning Shenna. They make you feel like you were family, every second you are there. Bernie took his time explaining everything as many times as you needed. He made you feel very comfortable in and out of the water. If you’re like me with anxiety rest a sure he will take his time and be patient as you work through it. It’s everything about diving and so much more. I stayed in contact over the years and will continue to as I’ve made life long friends and hopefully added to their dive family. If I could give them 100 Stars I would. BOOK with these great guys and enjoy your day. Trust me you will love every minute of your time with them and learning to dive from the very best.... from beginning to more if you want. Oh hahaha MAKE SURE you ask Bernie about his MOM comment it will make your day and his... lol 😂 Thanks guys for everything Shenna

Having people come back is the biggest compliment a business can ever receive! We are lucky to have met you both and get the opportunity to dive together. When people return we know that is what friends are. Sorry it seems such a quick vacation for you only 1 week the time goes by far too fast. We will stay in touch. From all of us at Merlin
