These guys have the diving concession at the Royal Resorts properties in Cancun. They set up by the pool, give a quick, free, trial dive in the pool, and if you like it they can take you on many 30' dives that don't require certification. I got PADI certified 25 years ago in college but never went on a dive,... More

I booked this snorkeling trip through my upscale hotel, so I thought it would be similarly high quality. It was nice and short (1.5 hours) and take the boat to the reef and snorkel for an hour. No booze, no food, no shopping and no sightseeing -- perfect! Well, not so much. First they were terribly disorganized. The boat smelled... More

My overall dive experience was fantastic. Jaime was our dive master, he was well experienced and did a great job. However, when we first arrived at Solo Buceo a lady greeted us and as we told her we were scheduled for a 2pm 2 tank dive (1 for the shipreck and 1 for the reef) she said she couldn't do... More

While the service at the resort was excellent and at the docks it ended when the boat captain began ordering and sometimes pushing people off of the boat. Diving is supposed to be fun and with a knucklehead like that I wouldn't board his boat again. Our dive guide was simply outstanding as was the videographer and they made the... More

We did the sailfish snorkeling tour with them and had a great time. The captain of the boat was excellent at spotting the mantas, whale shark and we finally got to swim with so many feeding sailfish chasing after the school of sardines, so much fun. the guide on the boat was excellent in safety consciousness and was always very...

This was a great experience from the start. I was given my intro in the pool of my hotel. I was scared and the gent was very patient with me. The next day we dove to the underwater museum and coral reef. My instructor Gabriel saw that I was nervous and literally held my hand until I felt confident, and... More

I had a great time with this dive center. I am a fairly new OW certified diver (12 th dive) and felt safe and protected with them. They make sure you and all you dive buddies are safe and get to see some great stuff underwater. i'll definitely dive with them again the next time I'm in Cancun.

I completed my PADI certification at this facility and I had done a lot of research before. I was rewarded by the total professionalism and the way I was treated by the staff. Wow! If you are a certified diver you need to dive with this company. There is a reason that PADI also had a high rating for this... More
