November 2013 we have dived with them and finished our Nitrox course. It was a great time!
Diveshop is run by really friendly team. Everyone is helpfull and very proffesional (special thanks to: Manfred, Ninett, Ting and Roland). They have different approach for leading bussines comparing to other diveshops on the island. They are not as big as others which gives them opportunity to get better relation with their customers. We felt really individual - small diving groups, comfortable and not crowded boat etc. They know how to create a great atmosphere while diving and spending time at their diveshop (and beach bar ;)). All of that gives feeling like you are in one diving family - with staff and other customers. You can really see different approach to diving business. It is not another 'big diveshop factory' where you'll be next anonymus diver.
Dive equipement is brand new and in very good condition. The same with the boat which has been recently renovated and in my opinion is one of the best on the island. Divemaster Ting is always finding cool stuff underwater and makes sure that you took best possible picture, made good movie etc.
Comparing to dozens diveshops with which I was diving in South-Easterna Asia and Central America it is one of the best!
And they have THE BEST PRICES on Malapascua Island comparing to quality!
Professional team (dives led by very good European and local divemasters/instructors), new equipement, boat, nice diveshop are GREAT VALUE comparing to price.
Moreover, they really care about people. On November 2013 island was badly affected by typhoon Hayian. Though we left island 1 day before it strikes, diveshop proposed us shelter for free (we stayed in different resort - only dived with Little Mermaid) in case we decide to stay this hard time on island. We know also that dive shop organized shelter in their concrete building for all their staff with their families and random divers/tourist staying this time on the island. It was really generous and may save some peoples lives that time.
We really recommend diving with Little Mermaid! If you plan to spend time on Malapascua - go straight to those guys.
Thanks to you for great time on island!
