Reserving was ok as i did that on shop. I had 3 girls with me to do snorkeling in one day. Yes, timetables had some challenges but nothing special. We we bit late every day but that did not ruin my plans. They focus heavily on safety before trip starts. At least it should make divers aware that you have... More

Carlos and Wendy run nice, clean and safe dive operation on Aruba. Very friendly and accommodating for divers of all skill levels while reasonably priced. The boat is never crowded and the rental equipment is well maintained. I will return to the island and to Mermaid Dive Center.

Always enjoy diving with these people. Love the owners, Hubert, and Canicio. Missed Bero this year :(. Safety is their concern as well as having fun. They are the only dive company we have dove with, that we go around group (pre dive) and introduce ourselves and tell how many dives you have. This is nice. I loved it when... More
