Hands down the best dive shop in Playa. When diving with them, I always feel safely within my limits while learning new things and having a blast! Scuba 10 is professional, safety oriented, and seriously fun. I did my open water course with them and I'll be back for the advanced course and all courses beyond. Thanks Scuba 10!! :)

This was my first time ever scuba diving! I am so glad to have found this location for my certification. Gerardo and his staff are all truly incredible people. Each instructor was very thorough, attentive and patient. Although I suffer anxiety they were very cooperative with me. I can't wait for my 2nd trip back!

At avenida 10 near calle 10 ( hence the name) in playa del carmen you can find the dive shop. Fleur and I came here to learn scuba diving and were perhaps a little nervous before doing so - not for long. We started learning straight away: on the first day we knew about our equipment, had our first session... More

We completed and passed the PADI Open Water Course with them. At the completion, they assured us that our temporary cards would be sent almost immediately. It has been over a year since we have completed the course and although we have called, emailed, etc. repeatedly, we have not received our cards. Irene (owner) and Gerardo (owner) have both "assured"... More

This is a high quality dive shop. I had an awesome two tank dive with them, including the Bull Shark dive, which is seasonal. Lots of bull sharks, 6-8, and close enough! Keep in mind, there are several companies in Playa del Carmen that do this kind of dive. Scuba10 does not feed the sharks. There is some talk in... More

Gerardo and the rest of the team at Scuba 10 are a fantastic crew! I am a newly certified diver from Minnesota without a ton of experience, but I felt very safe and comfortable around these guys. I did 3 shallow reed dives at 35ft, and 1 deeper dive at 75ft with bullsharks. We had a small group, so we... More

I took an introductory dive with SCUBA 10. When I realised I had the time, I took the full PADI course and I now have my PADI diving certificate. I got to know Berny (Barnardo) after my introductory dive, as I was staying close by. They are all very friendly and helpful. Berny made the training thorough but also fun... More

I bet there are plenty of dive shops in PdC that'll get the job done and provide a good experience. But Scuba10 goes beyond the expectations of a business and really takes care of you like family. Irene & Gerardo were super nice and accommodating of my schedule and making the certification course happen for me. I did my theory... More
