We tried the Discover Scuba dive at Cancun Scuba Center. We were so impressed that they could take two people who have never been in deep water, train us for an hour or so in some safety information and have us practicing in the pool in no time. Then within a short time we were on the reef...diving! It was... More

OK, they are fantastic. The operation is run out of a little shack on the beach next to the ferry.....but don't let that fool you. They are as professional as it comes and genuenly interested in your safety and enjoyment. The equipment is good, and the attention is supurb! My husband and I went to finish our dive certifications there... More

This is the review for our March trip. My wife and I wanted to dive cenote so I sent out email to several dive shops around the area. Cancun Scuba Center was one of the few shops replied to my email. Juan Carlos answered all my questions and I liked the fact that we would leave early before it got... More

My partner and I undertook our pool and theory sessions in the UK before completing our PADI Open Water certification with dives in Cancun. We chose Cancun Scuba Centre as they came highly rated and were very prompt in communicating. On arrival Juan Carlos and his team made us feel at ease as we were anxious with this being our... More

Professional all the way!! From the meeting place, to the goodbyes after the dive. The Cancun Scuba Center is in my opinion the only center to book with. I have been diving a long time, with over 3500 dives logged, and these dives in Cancun were set up as best as I have seen. All the equipment was new and... More

I did the discover scuba with Edgar and was beyond happy with the experience! He made sure I was comfortable in the pool before we left for the dive, which was amazing! Very much recommended for any kind of dive!

I did two 2 tank reef dives with them and it was a great diving experience. There was plenty of fish life (a shark, lobster, sting ray, schools of fish) and the dives were long. I averaged about 40-45 minutes with riding the current. The crew was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. I felt comfortable and confident with... More

My wife and I wanted to dive at MUSA and at the Cenotes, and decided to go with Cancun Scuba Center due to Juan Carlos' curteous emails. He answered all our questions quickly, and had the most reasonable prices in the Hotel Zone. On the day of the dive, he took his time to explain everything there is to know... More

This is the third time we have returned to dive with Cancun Scuba Center. Juan Carlos and his team are safety conscious, knowledgeable about the area and just a pleasure to be with. A special thank you this time to Edgar for taking us on a fun dive to the museum and to Gustavo for taking us to the Cenotes.... More

After doing a lot of research on scuba diving Cancun, I saw that Juan Carlos had great reviews, they all were true. I am very happy with my decision to go with Cancun Scuba Center. We did 4 dives during the week. We would have done 5 but the port was closed one day. The coral is amazing here and... More
