I've been an assistant dive instructor for more than 20 years. I brought my 13 year old son to Cancun for his first dive. His instructor, Fred gave him a one-on-one equipment review and and a one-on-one pool skills review. A team of instructors and dive masters loaded the boat and wouldn't let us lift a finger. The boat was... More

My daughter earned several certificates there and she liked it. Nothing fancy but very good value with good equipment and experienced multilingual instructors They could improve the quality of the boats being used, but it is not a major issue.

I was referred here by my local dive shop in Ohio to go through my certification for open water dives. The instructors and dive masters were amazing and very excellent at getting you ready to experience the dives. They covered all the materials and were explicit about what to expect in each dive session. Amazing! Hugo makes a great instructor!... More

I read a review that indicated that the people were uninterested and non receptive. We found the opposite. We greeted the employees with smiles , friendliness and we are here for fun attitudes and it bounced back at us big time. Cathy, Steven and Anna were all great to deal with and greeted us by name with smiles after the... More

Diving the Mexican cenotes with SCUBA CANCUN was wonderful.In addition to the natural beauty of the setting the diver is treated as an individual and not as part of a herd..unique needs are met with a smile.Our dive master willingly shared his in depth knowledge and love and of these geological treasures.His attention to detail in the pre-dive briefings added...

Will be in Cancun for 2 weeks in April, sent a couple of emails with a question, but did not receive a response back. We may decide to contact them once we are in Cancun or may have to look for another shop?

I dove with Scuba Cancun two days in a row. My initial experience made me really think hard about returning the next day, but the second day diving with Scuba Cancun ended up being a much better experience than the first. Three of my friends and I arrived to our all-inclusive hotel on the Hotel Zone in the mid-morning. We... More

When I first showed up I wondered what I got myself into, the big boat seemed full! But they had the staff on board to run it and run it good! Each divemaster/instructure had there own small group that they worked with. Everyone I meet that work for them was great. This is without a doubt a first class operation.
