What's nice about this shop its the laid back atmosphere and attitudes. I certified with them a while ago and will continue to dive with them when in Cozumel. Aries Burns certified me and took time, was patient, and made it fun. The great thing was with my certification I got to take my required dives with my family (already... More

My wife and I did our beginner training in Minnesota and did our first two open water certification dives with Papa Hogs. We made our arrangements with ease via email and arrived in Cozumel on a cruise ship. Just a quick/cheap cab ride from the pier and we were welcomed by the staff and our dive instructor Mike. He made... More

I didn't go in the water this time I just act a nice lunch here and I can see what you always put restaurants and dive shops together in Cozumel because when people come out of the water they are ravenous! The staff were really great and the service was fast. I love the decor of the place which was... More

I was so impressed. My 15 year old daughter and I did our open water part of the course with them. Dive master Kyle was amazing. Super patient and amazing with my daughter and myself. They had all of our gear ready to go and on the boat the next day. Switched tanks between dives on the boat. The captains... More

So thankful we stumbled upon this snorkel trip. Looking to save from Carnival's excursion prices, I found the Papa Hog's shop. Saved about 50% off Cruise Line fees. Cab there was 5 min $12.00. Easy stroll back to ship. Staff was so friendly and accommodating to our family of 5. Very knowledgeable dive master and crew. Definitely recommend. March 18,... More

Small shop! Was not sure it would be safe at first but our DM Juan was really nice. We showed up thinking we were early and ended up being late and the boat left us:( but franciscos wife ended up driving to catch the boat. That was great customer service!! We would dive with them again! Also the cafe there... More

The diving itself was great, but the dive master and captain were only ok. The captain was pushy and did not seem to care, nor was he always helpful when the divers were getting back on the boat. The dive master was not as observant as he should have been as one of the fellow divers was down to 500psi... More

Just got back from another safe and fun scuba weekend with Papa Hog's. This time I took a couple of nervous new OW divers with me. I assured them that Papa's runs a safe and professional dive op. And so of course we all had a great time. Juan was again our DM and he always does a great job.... More

Great dive shop, professional and knowledgeable dive pros, then follow up on the deck with some of the best nachos on the island. If there's a better Margarita in Cozumel, I haven't found it. This place is a treat, and one to which I will return.
