I've had probably close to 30 dives in Cozumel and Riviera Maya area in the last 7 years. This time I dove with Deep Blue at Cozumel, had good experience there, and they recommended Hector at Scuba Tribe for cavern diving in cenotes (highly recommend if you have never done this). I did 4 cavern dives in cenotes with Hector... More

Dove with Scuba Tribe and had a wonderful experience. Hector is knowledgeable, experienced and runs an amazing shop. Our first two dives were great after which Hector suggested our next two be cenotes, what a once in a lifetime experience!! Would defiantly dive with the Scuba Tribe again. Feel like we made a friend for life. The reviews are right,... More

Our group had a great time diving with The Scuba Trip and specifically Hector. We dove with The Scuba Tribe two days and one the first day we did a couple of ocean dives. Hector took us to Two great reefs that had a lot of marine life and coral. He was excellent at pointing out the marine life that... More

We dove with the scuba tribe a year ago, and enjoyed it very much and gave them a 5 star review. So we decided to dive with them again this year. Unfortunately it was not a 5 star dive this time. We did the afternoon dive last Saturday. The shop was pretty easy to find, and Hector was ready for... More

We arrived in Playa del Carmen during a storm unfortunately but that didn't stop Hector and the dive staff from setting up 6 amazing dives. Because it was raining during our first day to dive, we decided to go to the cenotes as they are not affected much by the rain. Mauricio was our guide that day and was absolutely... More

My husband and I just returned from a long labor day weekend in the Riviera Maya. Though we have experience diving off the coast and around Cozumel, this was our first cenote dive. We chose The Scuba Tribe based on the excellent reviews we had read here on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Our reservation was handled promptly and... More

I chose The Scuba Tribe to do my Divemaster with, because I got to know Hector and his shop a couple of years ago. My instructor Steve is such an incredible, wonderful and encouraging teacher - I enjoyed his training and he always helped me out when I had questions. I can only highly recommend to dive and train with... More

I was very pleased with how accomidating Hector and Steve were during every dive. We spent over 2 weeks diving with them and did everything from Cenotes, ocean dives, night dives and even booked our whale shark tour through Scuba Tribe. Steve was very professional and helpful while diving in the ocean and you could tell that he's very passionate... More

My wife and I did some Cenote diving and a Whale Shark snorkeling trip (booked through The Scuba Tribe TST) with TST. We dealt directly with Hector (the owner) at the shop and he was upfront and honest about everything. They have good equipment and good instructors.
