Meridian diving is expensive. But then what choice do you have. They pick different dive sites through the days so you get to view plenty. Nitrous is no added cost to those suitably certified.

As a recently qualified Open Water diver I was a little apprehensive of going into the big wide underwater World but as soon as I met the excellent staff of Meridis I became instantly relaxed. The experience was truly wonderful and you always felt at ease during your dive.
