Lacey Kriston, PADI Advanced Mermaid

Some individuals deign to teach, others delight in it. Mermaid Echo is irrevocably the latter. Their compassion, kindness and knowledge was a constant source of comfort from the initial booking through the final dive. As someone who has had absolutely zero mermaid experience in the past, not once did I ever feel out of place or unwelcome. They answered all of my questions, took the class at a pace that I was comfortable with and were by my side through all of my nerves. Echo created an environment of safety and acceptance in which I felt confident enough to really push myself and accomplish skills I never thought I could achieve. Echo not only is an incredible instructor but also a remarkable person. If you are new to mermaiding or are a seasoned pro, Echo can help you achieve new heights…or depths.
