What prior travelers say

“Mermet Springs gives divers the chance to see many different underwater curiosities such as an ambulance, a firetruck, a train car, and a Boeing 727. The spoonbill circle gracefully with mouths agape as they feed all around you. Mermet Springs is a diver’s playground with a friendly staff and great facility.”
