I contacted them before our trip to Cancun to set up two mornings of diving. Octavio was very prompt and informative in his responses. He gave us directions on how to get there using public bus & via taxi. Tip- use the bus! Once there, we were quickly signed in, and I realized I forgot my C card in the... More

We booked our first diving experience on line, the response and attention received by Octavio was fantastic. He provided detailed information, location, cost, how to get to the dive center, who would be our instructor. We are two older adults (68) with no diving experiences! We were somewhat nervous but our dive master Clemente quickly put us at ease. He... More

On my recent trip to Cancun, I had the fortunate opportunity to get my open water certification with Nautlius Diving. My instructor was Sherri, and she was amazing. I worked with her 1-on-1, and she explained each skill to me with clarity and precision, and made sure I was completely comfortable with them when we practiced both in the pool... More

I just came back from Cancun where I had the chance to dive for the second time with this amazing team. I had done the beginner's dive here 4 years ago and of course i chose them again for my second time around. Clemente was my instructor and he is the best! I felt safe at all times and got... More

We had an awesome time! As a first time scuba diver, I was hesitant of my ability to keep up with the rest of the group, but it turned out to be an amazing experience and I definitely would've regretted not going. Lots of ocean life and very cool things to see under the water at diving sites. Our instructor,... More

First, booking the trip was super easy. Octavio responds to emails promptly and provides all the information you will need for your visit. Our instructor was Clemente. He was very professional and easy going. I recommend purchasing the option of having digital pictures taken for you underwater-- Clemente followed us around and took many wonderful photos that we wouldn't have... More

This was my fifth time diving with Nautilus and was an absolute blast! I obtained my certification through Nautilus a few years ago and the crew still knows me by my name. This time I brought a friend with who has no experience diving or snorkeling. He did the discovery course with Clemente who was brilliant at going over the... More

Our group of six consisted of three first time divers and three very rusty, one time certified divers. Clemente was very knowledgable and his instruction gave confidence to even our most nervous crew members. We practiced in a pool with all of our gear (including wet suits for anyone who desired to wear one). He placed emphasis on controlling your... More

Can only comment on the Discover Scuba excursion: excellent! I'm a certified diver, have been on many dives, but will often take the Discover Scuba ("resort course" - 6 times!) when I travel with family or friends who have not done scuba before. No one has proven anywhere near as clear, as attentive or as patient as Clemente. If you... More

Excellent experience!! The shop is attached to the Cancun Clipper Club hotel (right behind the MexExtreme Restaurant), so they have use of the pool. Important! Our guide carefully went over the fundamentals of diving and equipment at their cabana and then got us into our gear, including wet suits, and into the pool where we could practice at our leisure...
