Spent three days diving with these guys, we did a refresher course and then 4 dives. It's very convenient from the coral princess hotel as you can go straight in to the boat from there. All the times we were diving the groups were small and the dive sites we were brought to were all fantastic.

We did five days of diving with them. It's very convenient to dive just out of the coral princess resort. We also saw some people diving out of downtown. They were picked and dropped off at the pier in downtown. Just be sure to ask if they will be mixing certified divers with other taking certification on the same boat.... More

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.

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.

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.
