I recently went diving with my family. Unfortunately, my 12 year old son was unable to equalize despite the patience of Juan Carlos. We were given the utmost attention and felt very safe as we were a small group. An added bonus was the fact that Juan Carlos sent us the photos from our dive by dropbox which added that... More

This will be my second time using Cancun Scuba Center (the first a few months earlier) and I continue to be impressed. Juan Carlos is warm, professional, and incredibly thorough. I learn more from him each time I dive and I feel completely safe from the moment we begin. This time I brought my sister to get her open water,... More

I have recently completed my open water course and planned my first 4 post qualification dives for Cancun. After reading the reviews for a number of dive centres in Cancun, I settled on Cancun Scuba Centre, and all I can say is they fully deserve to be so highly rated. Juan Carlos was very helpful when I was arranging the... More

We used Cancun Scuba Center for our first cave diving trip! I was a bit nervous at first but our guide, Gustavo was amazing! We were the first dive outfitters at the Dos Ojos Cenote. It was nice being the first people to walk down to the entrance and get to experience it without a crowd. Gustavo gave an incredibly... More

We did 6 dives with Cancun Scuba Center. The most memorable was the last one with our divemaster Roberto. Not only is he a really funny guy, he must be a magician too- we managed to spot a hammerhead! Absolutely terrific! We were high on joy for the rest of the day. During our 6 dives we also spotted lots... More

My boyfriend and I dove with Cancun Scuba Center during our week long trip to Cancun December 2014. This was our first time diving in Cancun and we would most definitely go back and dive with Cancun Scuba Center again. Martin was our dive master for all 10 dives and he was wonderful. He made a point to try to... More

My husband had a couple of dives with Cancun Scuba Center and was really pleased. Our trip to Cancun was a bit last minute but having identified this diving center as the best-reviewed one around, we were quickly convinced by the owner's responsiveness to our emails and also the clear information on their website (including prices, etc). On the day,... More

We are a family of three certified divers, and we looked for reviews of dive centers when going to Cancun. Cancun Scuba Center was number 1 on Tripadvisor - and after four days of diving with them we must really say that they deserve the top ratings! We did a wreck, drift dives on the reef in Cancun, the cenote... More

My 13 y.o. son and I completed our open water certification checkout dives with Cancun Scuba Center in February 2015. The dive shop is a small building near the Isla Mujeres ferry pier. If you are expecting a glitzy retail shop, you may want to look elsewhere. What we did receive there was outstanding guidance, humor and wisdom from shop... More

My boyfriend and I used Cancun Scuba Center for our Scuba Open Water Certification. The course was over a period of three days where we completed the confined pool portion of the certification as well as the required 4 open water dives. The dive instructor was awesome.
