Who dive with Us

What our Divers Said about Us

“Excellent Dive Center & safety first”

Was my wife’s and my first trip to Aruba. Glad we chose Mermaid as they are safety and fun oriented. We had divers with 8 dives to 1400 dives on board. As a PADI & SSI instructor having taken over 100 Caribbean trips I was pleased to see how focused the staff and captain was on everyone having a comfortable, great fun dive, but focused on safety first- from the pre-dive briefing, during the dive, and back on the boat followed by water and fruit. We are looking forward to returning and diving again with Carlos, Wendi, and the friendly crew. This was one of my top dive experiences in the Caribbean.

Great diving  312 Reviews from our TripAdvisor Community

Did a four day package dive with these wonderful people . Eiight GR E AT dives, wonderful boat, great equipment. Canicio is a GREAT dive master, professional. Made sure everyone was safe and taken care of. Captain Hubert was always there to get us quickly out of the water at the end of the dive. Entire staff and owners are friendly and helpful. I wouldn’t dive with anyone else.

Best Dive Trip Yet!!! 312 Reviews from our TripAdvisor Community

My husband and I are relatively new divers, and we did the 3 dive package. It was our first trip to Aruba, and we had no idea what to expect. From the first email I sent asking a bunch of questions to the dive experience itself, Wendy and Carlos were incredibly kind, helpful, and professional. They picked us up at our hotel which saved us time and money. Canicio, Hubert, and the other dive guides were very professional and top notch divers. They are very safety conscious, but know how to have a good time They point out interesting animals and reefs underwater so we don’t miss anything. They made us feel at ease and helped when needed. I learned how to be a better diver on this trip, while enjoying the amazing views!!! We will definitely be back, this entire company is so fun, professional, and the ideal company to dive with!!!

stephen-aAbsolutely EXCELLENT diving operation – 100% recommended  312 Reviews from our TripAdvisor Community

I am a 20+ years PADI DiveMaster and Master Scuba Diver, with over 400 dives. I mention this so that you can distinguish this review (with every respect) from one from someone new to diving who might be thrilled with rather less.
I dived on three days (6 dives) with Mermaid, with my wife (who is newer to diving – OWD with 20 dives) in May 2016. From our very first interaction with the company when we booked our diving online in advance, it was clear that this was a well-organised outfit.

We went to the dive centre (which is just off the main 1A/B road) the day before our first dives to look it over, and to fill in our waiver forms. We met the business owner Carlos, who is an out-and-out diving professional (commercial diving background). The centre is lovely with small pool, seating area, and BBQ (see photos). The shop is reasonably well stocked, and the rental kit in very good shape. We were offered free hotel pick-up, but chose to drive to the shop each day (for our convenience).

Mermaid does two dive trips most days – a two-tank in the morning and a one-tank in the afternoon. Each is preceded by an intelligent safety talk from Carlos. It is factual, helpful, and (frankly) overlooked by some companies I have dived with. You are made to feel REALLY safe. Carlos’s took us in a beaten-up minibus from the shop to the boat, which is located in Oranjestad harbour 10 minutes away. The dive boat is my favourite sort – big enough, but not too big (hate RIBs for diving). It holds 8-12 divers perfectly. It has a fresh-water shower (hose), marine head and easy access points at the rear.

Hubert drives the boat (really nice man) and there are a couple of dive leaders. We thought that Caniciou was a truly FANTASTIC 5* dive leader. Really knew his stuff, and where to look for interesting sea life. He taught me to spear-fish for (the hated) lion fish, and we caught three – which he fed to morays.

There are some great dive sites here – we liked the DC-3 wrecks the best. But all six dives we did were excellent with lots of sea life to enjoy.

When all was done, we stamped our dive logs, and Carlos gave us a Mermaid t-shirt each (free) as a souvenir. In my opinion, this is a perfect dive centre and I highly recommend it to you.

If my review has informed you, please reward me with a “Helpful” vote – thank you.

OUTSTANDING A+  312 Reviews from our TripAdvisor Community

Diving since 1983 many dives. However; been out of water for a while. Took their refresher course. I recommend. PADI has added a few new aspects for safety.
Mermaid runs a safe operation from start to finish. Carlos and Wendy the dive team and captain are great. All equipment including boat worked as you would expect.
Dive packages and prices are good. I am planning another Aruba trip in February.
Mermaid divers are a key to my dive plan

Best diveshop  312 Reviews from our TripAdvisor Community

My wife and I have been diving with Mermaid for nearly 10 years now and could not be happier with another shop. Wendy and Carlos take great care to make sure the dives go well. Reading the reviews over the years it seems some people don’t like the safety talk Carlos does before each group goes out, but my wife and I always appreciate it. This is a great shop that values safety and who does not like that? If there was room for 6 stars I would give them. If you are looking to dive in Aruba you cannot go wrong when you choose Mermaid divers.

Diving with the mermaids 312 Reviews from our TripAdvisor Community

I haven’t been diving in forever and they prepared me really well . Everyone there was really nice. i felt comfortable there. I had fun with everyone on the boat. We went diving at a beautiful location that made me want to turn in to a real mermaid and stay there. I highly recommend everyone visiting aruba and locals to go diving with the mermaids 🙂

“The best experience divers on Aruba since 1990”

100% recommendations from my side, if you like to know the underwater of Aruba, you need to know your people, to have a confident service and support of your diver sport for first time or for all your experience dives activities under the water in this part of globe, I have a very good experience with Mermaid Dive Center. Specially when you know very well the underwater of Aruba and his history in so many years.

I observe Carlos comment to me the Antilla Shipwreck is no longer safe place to be for divers, better follow the instructions of experience business owner diver. Other impressive observations: I note Carlos has a extensive certifications of many cain of certifications who support his safety knowledge, professional capacity like this: Carlos has successfully complete a PSI-PCI Compliance training program for cylinder Hazmat and Fill Station Operations in accordance with applicable CFR and OSHA requirements.

I’m commercial Diver since 1984, and Sport Diver since 1990 in Aruba, long time Traveler around the globe, also as Carlos formerly Commercial Diver, I may said his
