If you want to Go Diving this is the place to be! Its right next to the wonderful beach, the rooms are Clean, amazing prices and the food is nice. If U Go Diving with Roland you will have the best time ever and its even affordable for backpacker! We saw many sharks and He spotted oktupus and so much more amzing animals in the water. If you have any Problems under water He will Care for u. He is so calm and relaxed so you are as Well. He is really caring for the under water world and is Really careful. A friend did the advanced course with him and Roland made amazing 5 dives with her which where perfectly balanced between fun Theaching and adventure!!

Such nice folks and dive masters here. Not really sure why people are solely reviewing the food of a dive resort on tripadvisor. Kinda useless for anyone looking for the right place to dive. Mermaid is very accommodating, reasonably priced and a great shop that I’d highly recommend. I have 21 logged dives so I’m not the most experienced diver but I felt safe, the gear was reliable and the dive masters know what they’re doing and what they’re looking for. Was here 3 days and saw sharks every day! The last day we saw 15-20 and other dive boats didn’t see any!

Make sure you see Monad Shoal and Gato Island while you’re here!

Thanks for everything!

Nice atmosphere, but the food sucks so much I can't describe. Pizza was made of market bottom and the sauce was almost entirely ketchup.

Perfect time at Little Mermaid dive shop.
At first we came to stay a couple of days so as to pass our open water, and we finally extended to stay 10 days and go through the advanced open water.
Why ?
Because of the very professional but also fun, kind and reliable instructors, Karl and Kat, an amazing crew, the very comfortable and convenient facilities, and such an heavenly island. And the icing on the cake : wait for it.....a Delicious Mayonnaise !!!!
Thanks again for everything my, from now on, fellow divers ;)
Hope to come back soon !
❤️🧜‍♀️

The little mermaid diving center is like a family, with really friendly and professional instructor. We spend 10 days with them and it was amazing. I recommend it very strongly.

After a benchmark of 10 different dive centers, me and my friends decided to choose Little Mermaid for our open water certification. Prices are really correct and they have the huge advantage to provide free accommodation.
Not only our diving experience was exceptional but our instructors and the rest of the staff were absolutely amazing. Such as we decided to extend our stay and become advance divers!
These guys are the best and I cannot wait to come back. Love you Little Mermaid!

I came to Malapascua island for my advanced open water, I walked around a lot of the different dive centres on the island before choosing Little Mermaid and I couldn't be happier with my choice.

My instructor, Kevin was incredible, both in making the course incredibly fun and in making me feel safe and secure at all points when I was in the water. His professional attitude to improving my key skills, such as my buoyancy went above and beyond what I would expect from an instructor. He really cared not only that I had a good time but also that I improved as a diver.

The Marine life around Malapascua is excellent, seeing two types of sharks up close during my advanced open water was a dream come true.

Little Mermaid offered great value for money as one of the cheapest dive centres on the island with the added benefit of free accommodation when completing any full course.

Had the best time during our Advanced course together with Santi and Roland! Such a great atmosphere in the shop and very professional during all dives. Besides that also the restaurant and resort itself is great and very well equipped.

If you visit Malapascua make sure to dive with Little Mermaid!

Thanks guys and see you soon again ❤️❤️

We went to Malapascua with 2 friends for a week of diving, and did that with Little Mermaid.
We just loved everything ! The dives, clean equipment, people, everything was here to make us enjoy every second. My friends even passed the SSI Advanced Aventurer course there.
Great mood in that family atmosphere place. The dive center is not big, we felt it more enjoyable this way as you can easily meet very good people.
All the guides are very friendly and yet professional.
Thanks everyone (Marlene, Kath, Santi, Epit, Nonoy, and all others !!!) for that wonderful week ! :-)
