Thank You!!

 

Sometimes your life gives you a moment of pause and you have the time to reflect on what is important and what isn’t.  So we want to take some time to reflect on the “what is important” over the next few weeks.

First on our Thank you list is Mermet Springs.  Some of us have been diving at Mermet for as long as they have been open.  However, for the last 3 years Blue Meridian has dove there exclusively for our training and our Charity event.  Glen, PJ and their family and their Mermet family couldn’t be more professional, courteous and genuine. You know when you come through the door that they are glad to see you and they truly want you to have the best experience possible during your stay at their quarry!

The facility is very comfortable with plentiful shelter space for all who come in.  All shelters are conveniently located with easy access to the water.  Safe, easy dock access at various locations in the quarry make for safe entries and exits.  Hot showers, multiple private bathrooms, quick and quality airfills, quick and easy check-in and check-out all promote an atmosphere of relaxation and enjoyment.  In addition, the staff is helpful and always available to offer assistance.

The one thing I had never experienced before was that Glen promotes the  dive centers that bring their students to his quarry.  He will guide an individual to their local dive center before taking them on as one of his.  In some instances he is the closest local dive center and it makes sense that the student would come to Mermet for their training.  However, if he can promote a dive center more conveniently located in the area the individual is coming from, he will offer that option first.  He does not pursue equipment sales to those individuals who are there with another dive center.  The only thing you will find in the Check-In area will be t-shirts, trinkets and save-a-dive items.  Everything else is in a different building for purchase by Mermet students.  This respect, and make no mistake it is respect, that he shows the dive centers that come to his facility is truly refreshing.  In my mind it is likely one of the many reasons that Glenn and his team at Mermet are so successful.

The water offers a variety of fresh water aquatic life and even some surprise encounters with the spoon bills.  Fresh water jellies dot the surroundings as you move from place to place.  Large, clean training platforms are scattered throughout the quarry at varying depths offering plenty of space for all the dive centers to complete their work without piling up on each other.  In addition to the big plane from the movie “US Marshall” there are plenty of things to see from a semi-truck to suspended cessna’s, train cars, ambulance and boats!  All levels of training can be completed here as there are both deep areas and shallow areas of the quarry.  Visibility is left to Mother Nature, of course as with all untreated fresh water quarries, she can be kinder on some days then others.  However, typically as the season progresses the water clarity follows suit.  I have dove there in the late summer, early fall and had close to 40ft of visibility, naturally.

So, thank you Glen and crew for providing a stellar dive facility for us to enjoy.  Your professionalism and welcoming attitude is appreciated and we look forward to many more seasons of diving at Mermet Springs.
