    Having spent many years in the diving in a variety of places, I always come back to Mermaids for a variety of reasons. Firstly I know the people. They know the dive sites. They are extremely safety conscious. This is of primary importance.
    Secondly they have reliable transportation on and off the water.
    Thirdly the people I've met are from all walks of life at Mermaids--Switzerland, Britain, USA, Thailand, Japan, Korea, China...It is a wonderful place to make new friends and contacts.
    Finally there is an opportunity to socialize informally every-so-often at cookouts.
    Mermaids is among my best memories in life as I'm sure it will be yours!

    My partner and I just completed the 10 day course and had a great time! We were super happy to find an affordable sailing course to begin our adventures on the sea.

    The instructors (Joe & Howard) are fantastic and really know their stuff. They're very good teachers and went through the theory material as many times as needed for us to understand.

    The course is hands on from the beginning which was a great way to learn. We spent most of our time on the Jeanneau 43 (Paprika), but we did get an afternoon on the smaller racer X-99 (Hi Jinks). As expected the training boats are not brand new but learning on an older boat gave us valuable experience and we always felt safe with Howard and Joe. Unfortunately the Catamaran was out of the water for repairs but we were told about this before the course started and it didn't matter for us.

    We feel prepared to charter a boat for ourselves and we can't wait to get back in the water :)

    Pick up from hotel at 8am as promised.
    Strait to Jomptien Beach where boat was ready to go.
    We drove about 45 minutes out behind last islands what you can see.
    Catch some live baits.
    At morning tide was very fast but when tide slows down fish started to bite.
    Barracuda, snappers, Queenfish, lots of small fishes and a great over 10 kg King Mackerel !
    Boat was best what I have seen in Pattaya.
    Rods, reels and hooks were high quality.
    Captain and deck hand knew what they do.
    Did not speak a lot but how they handle the rods told me all.
    I will go again.
