Attraction details
Owner description: Come and share our passion... these words perfectly reflect the atmosphere at Phocea : First of all, for us diving means pleasure (the pleasure to discover its underwater treasures), professionalism (we dive with the highest safety standards) and a great atmosphere (being serious doesn´t mean it can´t be fun). Come to discover Mexico, a country with a rich culture, ancient traditions, magic places and friendly people. The Yucatan peninsula enjoys a tropical climate, that allows you to dive all year long, in warm waters, with excellent visibility. The water temperature ranges from 79°F and 84°f in the sea, depending on the season and 75°f all year long in the cenotes.Martine, Didier and their French-Mexican team, welcome you to offer you the best of Phocea.

Would highly recomend them again. Great dives in the Cenotes and then out on ocean. They had three of my kids in intro dive and they all enjoyed it. my older daughter and boyfriend got Advanced certified and Damien did great job. If going to dive in the Cenotes ask for Camille. His passion is Cenotes and it shows!!

Phocea Mexico is one of the best, well organized and top staffed dive center I've been to. In the Riviera Maya, don't look any further! Fantastic place, from start to finish.

Phocea Mexico in Playa del Carmen has treated us great each and every time we have gone there. The hotel is pretty ok but the people of the hotel and especially the dive shop have treated us with way above average service and respect. The whole staff there has great service and will go out of there way to make... More

Based on wonderful experience I had with Phocea Cozumel during open water classes in November 2013 I decided to take the Advanced Open Water classes also with them. I returned to Cozumel to take the classes in May 2014. Since then I had the occasion to meet other dive teams and I realized my decision to choose Phocea was the... More

We had a great experience diving with Phocea. Did 2 dives in Cozumel and 2 in cenotes. Very professional team, very nice staff, good quality gear, nice boat in Playa. They drive you in their SUV to the cenotes. The prices are very in line even a bit cheaper than other dive shops, especially for the gear. I agree with... More

I highly recommend Phocea Mexico in Playa....we had another dive shop set up for our trip and after reading the reviews and not great communication, we moved our whole group over to Phocea Mexico. Their communication is over the top, they answered every question and modified some of our dive locations to fit our needs. If you e-mail them, you... More

Highly efficient shop with a very friendly, knowledgeable staff. They love what they do and make non-divers into divers and divers into better divers. The staff enjoys teaching, sharing their experience/knowledge and celebrates with you when you accomplish new skills. We recommend Phocea Mexico Dive Shop to anyone wishing to dive while visiting Playa Del Carmen. Highly recommend the Whale... More

Before doing my IDC I did some research in several dive shops and I decided to go with Phocea Cozumel and it was the best decision!!! I received excellent service from the very first minute.
