"You look out over Mermet, and it is beautiful. The water, the trees, the sky; it's a great place. But underwater, it is a completely new world. There is nothing else like it. That is what I love about diving. We live on a water planet. We are drawn to it. And when you dive, you get to see the rest of the world!" - Glen Faith, Owner of Mermet Springs

Alert Diver Article - Proactive and Prepared

Alert Diver

"When emergency response is made as accessible and efficient as possible, it's much easier for divers to embrace the culture of dive safety. Divers are more apt to remind each other to be cautious and to watch out for each other with increased vigilance. That culture is fostered by the friendly and vigilant nature of the staff at Mermet Springs, and the personal interest in safety shown by the owner and staff makes people feel they are not just customers but friends."
