I hate reading Trip Advisor reviews for scuba because it's always full of people giving 5-star reviews because they are new and were simply excited that they went diving for the first time. Experienced divers' reviews are all drown out by exclamations of, "Like, OMG!!! We saw a turtle!!! 5-star!!!!1!" Where are the reviews from fellow experienced divers? Well, this... More

I used to work in the dive industry, so realize where I'm coming from when I say that Alvaro is probably one of the top 3 dive instructors I've ever met, and possibly the single most experienced diver that I have ever met. (That is saying quite a lot.) So if you are a little rusty, or a little nervous,... More

Always Diving's reviews are spot on and I and my son are first hand witnesses. Here's why and the low down . . .

Alvaro is simply the best. If you love diving, and end up diving with someone else in Cancun, I already know that you are not going to have as great of a dive experience as I get every time I go. I keep coming back to Cancun because I love diving with him so much. There are even times that... More

This is my 3rd trip diving with Always Diving in the last 12 months. Alvaro is very accommodating, I have been on excellent advanced dives, drift, night, deep, wrecks and reefs. He also knows where to find your favorite underwater friends. I wouldn't dive with anyone else. This latest trip the weather was bad, so Alvaro took us to Cozumel... More

My family and I took a trip to Cancún this past week for a wedding. None of us had even scuba dived before and decided to give it a try. This was one of the few places that allowed us to scuba without much training. After safety and learning about the equipment they took us on a training swim just... More

Alvaro really cares about the experience of his customers, is extremely kind, and is very helpful. After a fun and clear explanation of scuba diving he led our group on a safe, fun tour.

We arrived and took the bus as he said ($1.00 a person) and arrived at his dive shop. He was out on another dive since we were early and I spoke with him on the phone.
