I had planned for two days of diving during my week long stay in Cozumel, but my experience with Pepe Scuba was so positive that it left me wanting more... Frank and the Pepe staff were very accomodating and I was able to fit in another two days of diving. I saw & filmed sharks, turtles, eels, rays, toadfish, sea... More

This was my first open water dive and the experience at Pepe's was unreal. Dive Master, Abdias, was very thorough, knowledgeable, and made me feel very comfortable and safe. He made sure all my equipment was in good working order and was able to answer any of my concerns and/or questions. Overall, my dives were fantastic and was an amazing... More

My mom sister and I dove with Pepe's for three days in March. What a great experience! Volrath was our dive master and he was great! We will definitely be coming back.

My fiancé and I dove with Pepe's 7 times over the past week. We did the 3 day package plus one extra night dive. The owner was friendly and accommodating. Each of our dive masters was very knowledgable and delivered on every occasion. They were able to adjust each of their dives to the needs of the divers on their... More

Both my kids were certified years ago at Pepe's. They are great people located at the Coral Princess hotel. Great combination of smaller boats, more personal attention and safety. Was there a few weeks ago and have some great dives with turtles, sharks and Eagle rays. I have stayed at other hotels but always use Pepe's for diving.

just returned from a family trip, both my kids were certified, 16 and 13. Frank runs a top notch dive shop, very flexible and customer oriented. Abdias was an excellent dive master. Also met divers who have used Pepe for years, I can see why.

My husband & I are not cert. divers. Our 1st experience was with Vollrath (DM). He gave us a thorough lesson in the pool prior to the beach dive. The beach dive right off the side of the hotel was incredible. We literally learned enough in the pool to take the plunge into the stunning waters right off the hotel.... More

I stayed at the Coral Princess and Pepe is located there, thus very easy. They did a good job and the dive groups are small. We id a night dive, which is highly recommended. I also requested a 100 tank. That was a good thing for me.

Just recently did my open water certification through Pepe dive shop. Frank and the staff were very accommodating and worked well with this new diver. Abdias was my instructor and did an excellent job. After certification went on 4 more dives and everything was great and the dive master and staff on board the boat were great. They know the...

We dove with Abdius and Valente as dive masters the whole week. Both were great in getting on the reefs and pointing out various critters. They did limit dive time to 50-60 minutes but did let folks come up at different times based on air consumption so you did not have to come up with the lowest common dominator. I... More
