Did 4 dives with them (2 mornings, 1 wreck and 1 reef each morning). All were great, but I was particularly impressed by the amount of life at the wrecks (including a shark and more eagle rays that I could count). You'll most likely be dealing directly with the owner and Dive Master, Alvaro. He's very responsive both over the... More

Always Diving is a great outfit to book with no matter what your diving needs are. Alvaro says he makes friends not just customers and he's right. There aren't very many outfits where the owner still dives with his tours but we had Alvaro as well as the fabulous Fabio on our dives. He is very professional and shows great... More

I picked Anyways Diving because Alvaro was very responsive and professional to work with leading up to the trip and I felt comfortable planning multiple dive days with him. I am so thankful I did as yesterday was one of the best dive days ever. I booked a two tank Cozumel trip with Bull Shark diving afterwards. He suggested nitrox... More

In the months leading up to our trip, I reached out to multiple dive shops to inquire about getting Advanced Open Water Diver certifications for my family of four during our four day stay in Cancun.

Alvaro and his team guided me in a fantastic underwater experience in the Cancun area. During our cenote dives I was fortunate enough to be the sole customer; Alvaro got us there early enough to be first into the water, a truly magical experience. Special kudos for his inventiveness and work to recover my dropped dive light (completely my fault... More

During my semester abroad in Cancún I decided I wanted to try diving. A friend of mine recommended Alvaro to me and I decided I wanted to do my open water certification with him. Honestly out of all the things I have done those past 5 months, diving has been the best experience! Alvaro and his team are great, they... More
