Our diving experience with Merlin was incredibly awesome. Emma did a good job in teaching us in our PADI Peak Buoyancy course, she is very patient and a very good instructor overall. The whole dive centre team were kind and very helpful, we felt very safe during our dives. Equipments are in good condition and dive sites were nearby and beautiful.
