These folks know their dive locations, and offer a safe and enjoyable outing. The dive masters were friendly and very professional. Additionally, they made every effort to ensure that we had a great dive experience. I highly recommend giving them an opportunity to thrill you as much as they did me.

I chose Papa Hog based on the reasonable price for 7 days accomodations with breakfast and 5 days of diving for less than $600 US. The rooms were clean, the food was good and there was always hot water for showering. The Dive Masters were well aquainted with the sites and would suggest areas that weren't crowded making the dives... More

We took a large group to dive, and Papa Hogs was amazing! We were safe, we had a full helpful crew for our seasoned and newbie divers. Diving was one of the best life experiences I've ever had. We loved it so much we are having our kids take scuba lessons and we are doing our open water dive at... More

First, this review is for doing a Certification with this shop. For general diving, it would have a higher rating. The accommodations on site are very nice for the price. Large living areas and clean. The restaurant on site is very good and convenient. For diving, everyone can keep their big boat comments on shore! Small boats limit the amount... More

I went diving in Cozumel in September 2014 and was very pleased with my dive experience with Papa Hogs. Great boats, organized dive schedule especially with a large group as the one I was with. Owner Margaret was a pleasure. Very courtious and gracious. Will choose Papa hogs again when in Cozumel. Amy Colombo United Dive Club

Visited Papa Hog's during their annual Hogtober Fest--great time to be there. Special menu items featuring German specialties, and they are good!! Diving was excellent as always--definitely not for the weak-minded, if you are doing a course! Owners were pleasant as usual, and it is nice to be remembered by their entire staff--makes you feel valued as a customer.

My last visit was in August, but I have been diving with Papa Hogs since 2006. They have small, fast boats and great dive masters. They work hard to make sure the groups they put together are a good fit and try to comply with special requests. They are especially aware of safety - some people might bristle at their... More

I won't do this again. Marginally safe, no great dives, lousy facilities, fast track diving (can we say vacation?) and an attitude. I'll go somewhere else.
