My wife and I got hooked on diving 6 weeks ago in Cabo San Lucas when friends took us on an Into to Diving Excursion. After we returned home we decided to return to Mexico to complete our Open Water Certification. We researched Trip Advisor for the best dive shop and selected Playa Scuba. We were not disappointed. We felt... More

Hello, I dove Dos Orojos with Klaus and had an awesome time. Klaus was very nice and was an excellent guide through the caverns. He can also set you up on a tour of the Whale Sharks which was unbelievably exciting. I would not recommend anyone else in this area, but him. He is someone you can trust.

We did the Dos Ojos cenote dive. There were only 2 of us with 1 DM. Great, thorough explanation of what we would encounter and the procedure for everything. Our guide was patient since we were newer divers at the time. I think overall was about $100 for 5-6 hours of diving which included transport and a light lunch. Heading... More

Me and my girlfriend spent a week in Mayan Riviera in July 2014. We are fairly new divers with only 6 dives each before arrival to Mexico. We saw this dive shop on trip advisor and after reading the reviews decided to give it a shot, and we were not disappointed. We decided on the 3 day reef, cenote, and... More

Had a great time diving with Playa Scuba. They even managed to run tours when I was the only one on them! Great variety of diving around Playa with Whalesharks, cozumel's reefs, playa's drift dives and the Cenotes. Can't wait to go back and see the bullsharks.

We were recommended to use Playa Scuba Dive Center by the American owner of the condo where we stayed for the week. One diver in our group has been diving for years, and the other is still relatively new but not a novice by any means. After doing extensive online research, we corresponded with at least three other dive shops... More

My friend and I did a three-day, six-dive package with Klaus in the cenotes. Klaus is a fantastic instructor, and his way of taking care of the group had us calling him "papa Klaus." He even takes you to great local food places before and after diving! I had not been diving in over two years (although I took a... More

Niki is a wonderful dive guide, patient, knowledgeable and practices safety. I had not done an open water dive for a few years and she was very attentive to me noticing when I needed a reminder. We had rough water and strong currents which she explained before each dive. The ocean reefs were teaming with life and we did get... More

We did our Open Dive course with them and had a great time! Nicky was very thorough and made sure everyone had a clear understanding of the material and skills needed to get through the course. She was also very patient and caring!! Would definitely dive with her again!!
