We spent 2 days with Juan Carlos, Oswaldo and their crew so that our 12 year old could conduct his open water dives required for his PADI certification. What a fantastic experience with professional instructors and a lot of personalized attention. I am an experienced diver but am always slow to equalize. On day 2 we had to modify the... More

Dove with Cancun Scuba Center on two days. We booked roundtrip transportation from our hotel, and they were right on time. We dove with Roberto both days, and he, as well as the crew on the boat, were so awesome. They enjoyed what they did and made sure that we had a great time. The first two dives were the... More

We highly recommend Juan Carlos and his expert team of dive masters! He was amazing to dive with and gave us great tips every step of the way without making us feel like we didn't know anything. They were prompt and thorough with equipment needs when I had a few issues with my reg and BCD. He was positive and... More

My wife and I chose the Scuba Center because of their consistently positive reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Roberto was our dive master and he was the perfect combination of laid back and supportive. He was simply fantastic! My wife lost her GoPro and signaled to Roberto; he quickly found it floating on the surface, saving the... More

I have not dived in over 13 years and was a little nervous. I took a refresher course with Roberto and he was excellent. He also was my dive buddy and made me feel very safe in the choppy water off the coast of Cancun. I also went diving with Juan Carlos in Cozumel and had the best time. He... More

This is the best place to go in Cancun if you want to learn to Scuba dive. Everyone was friendly, professional and welcoming. Prices are reasonable and the location is excellent. I had an awesome time and I look forward to seeing them again on my next trip to Cancun!

Diving with these guys was really enjoyable. In spite of being an hour late due to getting the time zone wrong and being the only person booked on the trip, they were all still really helpful and friendly. In spite of being a small company they are really professional and I would definitely recommend them

I went to Cancun to accomplish my open water certification for scuba diving. Since I'd done my classroom and pool training in Colorado with another instructor, I was really nervous. I didn't know who I'd be working with or what the conditions would be like. Fortunately for me, Juan Carlos was there! Simply put, he's awesome! He is an amazing... More

My two sons and I were in Cancun for our daughters wedding in September. I searched the available dive shops and stressed that my sons were new divers and that I wanted easy, fun dives for them. I have been diving for many years. Juan Carlos (shop owner and the dive master) fit the bill perfectly. He asked us which... More
