It was my first time diving in salt water and I was very nervous, especially being a female by myself. I did the one tank dive in the afternoon, and was the only diver, I thought they would have canceled but didn't. The instructor went over everything with me, and I had an excellent time. I enjoyed it so much... More

I did a two tank dive with this company and wished I had the time to do more. I got to the shop and registered in no time. Got my equipment in no time as well. There were about 7 of us diving that morning and I am sure that this made for a smooth trip. The only down side... More

They were supposed to give me a t-shirt for getting certified with them. Never received it. Asked for it later, no response. The dive spots were 20 feet visibility at best on a clear say. Where are they taking us?

All my family came along for a dive one noon, we had 2 certified divers, 2 beginners and one of my daughters joind... More

We had a horrible dive experience with Scuba Cancun, and it started weeks before the actual dive. We made reservations on their website, which included providing a credit card, and never heard anything from them. We sent three follow-up emails before traveling to Mexico to confirm our reservation, and to find out details of the dive, such as "when is... More

We took our kids to learn how to dive, we signed up for the little introductory class that is just about 3 hrs and then an ocean dive. The instructors and boat crew took great care of my wife and children, they helped us every step of the way, showed us all the fish and coral, we had an unforgettable... More

first off let me tell you, they are truly a FIRST CLASS organization! Lars Valentin was AMAZING! He is by far the best instructor I have ever met. The employees all made you feel welcome and were always super helpful! The diving was better than expected and cannot wait to go back and dive with Lars again!!

My son Jack did his 4 open water certification dives with Jorge at Scuba Cancun. The boat was very large and suited out group of 12 divers easily with room to spare. Jorge and the rest of the staff took great care of us getting off/on the boat and handling our equipment during and after the dives. The dives themselves... More
