Custom made to order scuba diving. On our first dive our dm-abadias asked us what kinds of animals we would like to see or haven't ever seen while diving. The list was rather long and would require having a few very chance encounters. After a week of dives, Abadias had found, and helped us photograph everything on the list. On... More

They need more space. To packed or mixing student with experienced divers. Also no Nitrox at the Dive Shop (need one day anticipate to have it).

Valente and Abdios are excellent divemasters, and with the boat captains at Pepe Scuba took great care of our group. Their boats are fast so we got to the dive sites of our choice quickly. 4 of our group completed their PADI open water certification under the watchful eye of instructor Abdios.

My wife and I are advanced divers with many years of diving experience. We used Pepe on our recent visit to Cozumel. All boats were fast and well maintained. Dive masters were very experienced and knew the reefs well. They also handled the problem of mixed levels of experience well, by respecting our experience and allowing us the freedom to... More

My husband and I have been diving with Pepe scuba since 2005. Frank, Abdias and everyone have made each trip memorable. The things we have seen would not have been possible without Abdias there to point them out. Each year we see things that are very memorable - eagle rays, turtles, dolphins and sharks to name a few. We have... More

I dove with Pepe Scuba in early June; really nice guys, picked me up at a pier near my hotel, reasonable price, totally professional operation. I was very impressed on one dive in particular when we had an inexperienced family along with an older diver who was having weight problems. The divemaster, Vollrath (unusual name, right?) did a super job... More

i started diving with Pepe Scuba in 1991 and go back every year. I met Frank years ago when he was just on the island on vacation and diving with us. When he bought the shop, it got even better as it was now run by a fellow diver that understood and catered to the people getting into the water.... More

My son (16) and I were recently certified open water divers. We asked Frank for an easy first dive, which he did and sent us with Volrath for an afternoon check-out dive to see where we were with diving skills, buoyancy and bottom time. Crazy currents ended our second dive but the rest of the dive days were spectacular. Valente... More

This review was long overdue, we dove with Pepe about a year ago, but seems the crew is still the same. My husband and I were both new certified divers, with no ocean dive experience. Frank's team took good care of us and help me to overcome my issues. Frank responded our inquiry promptly, pricing as shown on the website,... More
