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

These are the coolest guys in the Riviera Maya. I’ve done cenotes, deep, sharks and currently planning a night dive for early next year. The staff is fun and professional, that’s probably why divers from all over the world keep returning to Scuba 10.

I have Javier as a guide on my intro to scuba dive, and he was great. It had been years since my last dive, and he took the time to help me out, teach me what I had forgotten and did a quick learning dive in the pool, which was greatly needed. He was very knowledgeable and made sure I... More

I went to Scuba 10 looking for a dive operator and found some new friends that treated me like family. Gerardo, Irene, Chino, Javi, Bernie and Michelle were really professional. After 6 days of intensive diving with them I felt like I was leaving some part of my family behind. They turned my vacations into something unforgettable.

I get scared very easily, so diving was a big thing for me but I decided to do my Open Water course in Playa del Carmen. I received a raving review from a friend about Scuba10 so I thought I would try them out. As soon as I entered the office Irene made me feel like I was at home.... More
