we snorkeled right along the reefs towards the southern end of the island. Eddie joined us in the water, staying with us so we could enjoy the tour along the reefs without having to worry about where we were in relation to our boat or other boats. Really fantastic!

Quaint little place. Owner operated and the owners/staff are out of this world. We have used Mike and Margaret's operation for many years for all of diving trips. We have rented a room on a trip. Our family love the staff and the visitors that come to stay or just grab a beer and talk. The view of the ocean... More

Spent 2 days with the crew from Papa Hogs and had an absolute blast! Emails were easy setting up the trip with Margaret and we got a great deal for the 5 of us on our own personal boat. Enjoyed 4 dives and a great day of deep sea fishing (caught a Dorado and just missed a Marlin...ARGH!). Will definitely... More

Our condo had these guys listed as a good source to use for a snorkel tour so one afternoon we stopped by a booked a tour for the next morning. Since we were there during the low season they were very accommodating with the short notice. We were a group of 5 and a couple in my group needed some... More

I have dove many times with Papa hogs. I have referred both novice divers and experienced divers. Family and friends. I would trust them with my children and have. They always give personal and excellent service. The equipment is nice and well maintained the boats are nice and the groups are small. They will work with groups to do dives... More

We switched to diving with papa hogs after a disappointing experience with anther company and were so glad that we did. Eddie was our dive master for the week and he was amazing, he was very friendly and we never felt rushed during our dives. This place is very good about getting started on time in the morning and we... More

When you have found the best diving and Margaritas on the island there is nothing else to look for! Except if you order a chimichanga!

It's always fun to dive with Papa Hogs ! They don't talk down to you like other dive shops! Our group enjoys the Small Fast boats out to the dive spot more than the Large Slow boats ! I can tell you I have dove all around and gotta say my wife and I feel better with Papa Hogs than... More

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
