*(See below for video) First, Juan Carlos (the owner) took time out of his busy day, went to the middle of the road to flag me down because I was lost for an hour driving past the place at least 5 times. That's service. Thanks Juan Carlos. Then, from the out of water training, to the pool training, to the... More

Even during my first emails to/from Juan Carlos prior to our holiday, I felt very good about these people; I was not disappointed. We did wreck, reef and cavern dives. All our dives were managed in the most professional manner that I have ever experienced. Juan Carlos was extremely helpful, in fact helpful above and beyond the call of duty,... More

What a great, thoughtful and high quality operation they have at Cancun Scuba Center! We dove with them earlier today and Juan Carlos takes such care to make certain everything is just right...someone who really pays attention to detail is exactly the kind of person you want running your dive operation. Our dive master Martin was outstanding too. My wife... More

I had a cenote diving and a wreck dive. I enjoyd a lot. The best part of cancun scuba center is the staff. They really care about your experience! For example on a wreck dive Juan Carlos told every fact you need to know before we entered water. He really knows how to take care of the customers. Really big... More

The best part was Juan Carlos, I had my daughter with me, we have both done about 30 dives, he spent most of the 2 hour trip from Cancun explaining everything (twice).. I found Cancun Scuba Center on trip advisor, the Westin was trying to book... More

I was able to have another wonderful time diving with the team from Cancun Scuba Center. Although the port closing and difficult conditions forced me to cancel some of my planned dives, I was able to sneak in a dive during my Christmas vacation. It is always a pleasure to work with Juan Carlos who teaches me something every time.... More

My fiancé and I were first time snorkelers and had a great experience. The guide was helpful and got us close to some turtles and other wildlife! Highly recommend!

Cancun Scuba outsources their catamaran snorkeling trips to Cancun Sailing. I will write a detailed review under their name.

We have dove in multiple places and multiple countries, and Juan was by far the best dive master we've had. We had our daughter who is a junior diver with us, and he spent extra time with her. Every dive we went on, he had tips to improve our dive skills no matter our level and hints with dealing with... More
