We were supposed to complete our advanced open water certification while in Cancun. Over a week before our trip, Patricia had already been looking at the weather forecast of 15-20 kt winds and emailed us letting us know that it may not be possible to do our AOW while in Cancun. We must have emailed each other 20 times back... More

I did my Advanced Open Water with Carlos and Oswaldo during spring break. There was some friction before we started, for I had problem picking up my textbook and stuff. But things worked out. :D They were very knowledgable and professional and really tried to make everyone feel comfortable about their dives. Maybe I am a little spoiled at this,... More

Everyone was just awesome and they really wanted to make sure that my brother and I had the best time we could. I finished the last 2 dives of my Open Water certification and the did 2 more days of diving. Ozwaldo, Roberto and Edgar were awesome. The guys on the boat were also very helpful and did everything they... More

Service: The guide was very nice, the captain and the first mate were very friendly. The guide did a proper safety explanation on the boat. However he did not check our equipment, which we had to do ourselves. (ok for people who have dive experience, but two guys on the tour were on the first dive). Prices are comparable to... More

This was my first ever scuba dive and it was amazing!! The instructor was really patient and put any fears to rest, especially going in the sea for the first time. This was by far the best excursion I had whilst in cancun and I'm now hooked on diving. Going to do my PADI so I go straight into the... More

I have been diving in Cozumel with Juan Carlos this week. Everything was absolutely perfect and the dives wonderful. Juan Carlos is a real professional, very friendly. It was difficult to choose a dive center when I booked my trip, but I am more than happy having chosen CSC. Thank you also to Patricia for her help and the organization.... More

I'm newly PADI certified and this was my first recreational dive. It was a great experience. Cancun SCUBA Center picked an excellent location along the Cancun reef and our group saw stingray, turtle, shark, eel and baracuda. The dive team was excellent in all the fundamentals - logistics, pre-dive instructions, and they provided additional assistance and oversight to a new... More

Went to Cacun primarily to dive and see the Museum. The Musee is OK, and I'm glad I saw it once. The second dive was close to the Musee with some reef and that was a good long dive, about 55 minutes as it is shallow, but lots of underwater life to see. The staff was very passionate about going... More

We just want to say a huge thank you to the whole team at CSC. If you are trying to choose between all the scuba centres in cancun like I did, stop and just book with these guys. So glad I chose them. Patricia was so helpful with my back and forward with constant emails. We had 3 verified divers... More
