I did my Advanced Open Water course with Mermaid Diving after many years without a dive, and although I was a little apprehensive Melissa and her team made every dive a pleasure. Special thanks to Lee for encouraging me to crack on with my deep dive after feeling wretchedly seasick and to Mokey for all her hard work and for... More

My teenage sons dived again for 2 days with Melissa her team. They both did their original open water dive course here, and although they have dived elsewhere are always keen to return. Why? Easy - great people, high quality and well maintained kit, a huge variety of dive sites ( wrecks and swim throughs this year) and a thoroughly... More

Went here for my first dive. Melissa and Mockey were good teachers, everything was explained really clear. Once in the water at the diving site they took their time to make me feel comfortable with breathing underwater, and after that we went further and saw a wide variety of underwater life, way more than I expected.. Definitely a recommendation! Thanks... More

Decided to give scuba diving a try as the newly married wife was already certified. Booked an intro to scuba diving with Melissa at Mermaid diving centre. Nervous as hell but hooked from the start. Patient teaching with loads of encouragement. Booked the open water diver course which was two sessions of pool work and four open water dives. Going... More

I had such a lovely welcome from the lovely Melissa as I entered the dive centre. I booked two shore dives for the following day, and to be honest my expectations were low, because I wasn't expecting to see much life. On dive day I was amazed how many different fish I could see, and loads of little critters. Viz... More

The team at Mermaid wasn't as helpful as I was hoping for. The dives were great but they didn't provide as much information as we wanted. We showed up and they changed our dive site and we ended up going on a boat. I like to be more prepared. The dives were great and once we got In the water... More

Just got back from some winter sun in Tenerife, Had 4 really great dives with Mermaid Diving. Nick and Sarah were great and helped me enjoy the full experience. The water felt really warm (or maybe its the 7mm wet suits that Melissa supplies that do the trick!) I dived at 2 new dive sites, one (Poris) was very well... More

Two days of diving, both beach and boat. Melissa runs a great dive centre and Mokey was a very purposeful guide/instructor - inspiring confidence throughout. Wonderful visibility and really nice under water. It's brilliant to have this in Europe in December. I will definitely be back to Mermaid Diving.
