Alberto is the best! We had one certified child and one not, with the help of Miguel he made our uncertified daughter so comfortable that she wants to pursue diving! Alberto is so friendly and very professional he made us feel like friends! Don't know why you would dive with anyone else!

Guys did a great job and were professional. They were thorough in the class room portion and we felt confident in going with them as beginners. Only having done SUBA 2 times we love it. Would use them again

Albertos Scuba is just great place to go for Scuba Diving experience in Caribbean See. Very friendly and experienced instructors, good pricing and very nice people around! - check them out - they are worth of it. Highly recommend! Josef

I have been diving about 12 times around the Caribbean and Alberto's shark dive was by far the best experience. He was personable and helpful to the end. Very accommodating making sure I was comfortable with my limited experience. My dive master Mikala was awesome. Yes his prices are lower than most but visit Alberto's for the quality and personal...

Miguel is a very friendly and experienced dive guide. Never felt unsafe diving with the bull sharks. Both Miguel and Alberto treat their customers with great smiles. Overall an awesome dive experience and certainly the highlight of my trip to Central America! Sam

While I ended up diving with Alberto's dive shop somewhat by accident, it was actually the best thing that happened to me during my stay in Playa del Carmen. The owner, Alberto, is very friendly, kind, and knowledgeable about diving. His shop is a small operation, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in quality. Alberto and... More

We did the Discover Scuba Diving program, and it was our first time scuba diving ever. We got a very good introduction and practiced everything nicely. Our guide really made sure we were comfortable with the gear before we went diving in open water. And we had two fantastic dives at Jardines and Chunzum'bul. We saw a big moray and... More

I have dove all over the Caribbean and Alberto's has to be one of the best, service and safety oriented dive shops I've seen. AND...some of the best prices! My wife and I did two Cenote dives and had Miguel as our dive master. He was awesome! Took super good care of us, and even stopped and picked up sandwiches... More

First of all, Alberto's provided the cheapest bull-shark dive I could find anywhere. In addition to that, they also seemed to be the only dive shop that could find the bull-sharks! All of the other dive shops emailed me the week or so before telling me that they had not been seeing the bull sharks, while Alberto assured me that... More

We've been diving with Alberto for five years now. His staff is first rate in their familiarity with the area sites. If you're looking for a fancy storefront or a large new dive boat, you won't get (or pay) for that with Alberto. What you will get is a veteran dive master with extensive local knowledge and small groups. Alberto... More
