John and I would like to thank the Scuba Cancun team for the diving we had while we were in Cancun. The whole organisation were friendly, accommodating and professional in all aspects of the programme. Due to the weather we had to change our dive dates several times but this was not a problem with the team on the ground,... More

Went out with this operation 3 times; diving off the waters of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Cenotes in Playa Del Carmen and off Cozumel. Must admit their equipment could stand some upgrading, but all worked well for my dives and the crew were friendly and knew what they were doing! The service was as expected with transport to 2 of...

This was my first dive after getting certified. These people are great. Highly recommend them. They have really great customer service and really make sure you have a great experience. We are bringing our kids back in June for their first dive and it will be here. I highly recommend this place. You will be delighted with the experience.

Did the diving tour to the Underwater Museum. They help you a lot with your diving gear which is important when you are a beginner. Their boat is very comfy and has a lot of space.

A friend and I headed to Cancun for a girls vacation in December, 2014. I own a dive store in Florida and have run a group trip thru SCUBA Cancun previously so decided to use them again. I was very pleased with the Service of our Divemaster Luis. Being an instructor myself, it was so nice not to have to... More

Me and my wife Denise (who is wheelchair dependant) booked an introductory dive through Thompsons. The staff were all fantastic from booking in with Anna right through to the dive master Louis and our instructor Fred! When going on trips on holiday I normally have to "man handle" my wife as places are not exactly wheelchair friendly BUT at Scuba... More

As "tourist diver" all over the world, I was disappointed with Scuba Cancun. The gear was worn and one emergency regulator had a broken mask, they don't routinely supply snorkels, and, most worrisome, the deck on the dive boat was collapsing in several places. To get the engine started, the deckhand went into the hold to fire it up manually.... More

Did two dives with them and loved both. They are one of the few 5 stars PADI company in Cancun. I've arranged my dives through email with Tom Hurtado who was really nice and answered all my questions. At first they look pricy, but do the math! They actually include the 16% tax on their prices, and some others don't.... More

We signed up for the Cozumel tour with Scuba Cancun and it was pretty terrible for what we paid. First issue is the exchange rate - you're essentially penalised for using the local Mexican currency as they have the highest exchange rate I've seen in Mexico. So you'll pay quite a bit more by using their own currency, go figure.... More

In 2005 I did four dives in Playa Del Carmen and in 2011 I did six dives in Cozumel. Coming to Cancun in October 2014 for only a few days, I had a hard time deciding where to dive after watching a few disappointing videos on YouTube on dives from Cancun and remembering diving with turtles in Playa Del Carmen...
