was told coral was very colorful and many species of fish would be seen. Water was rough and only greyish black coral. Selena was great but even she admitted water was too rough and end tour twenty minutes early. Overall ScubaCaribe should have rescheduled or refunded our money. Very disappointing.

We had a wonderful time on the catamaran with Arnolfo Rodriguez! My sister and I enjoyed the ride and amazing views and Arnolfo was very interesting to talk to. I would definitely recommend this to others who go to Playa del Carmen!

The scuba intro class was good and enabled us to go on a dive while were on vacation. However the instructor mis-led us and said that the class we had in the pool would count towards a PADI certification. We found out from the dive master on our dive that statement was incorrect. In order to get certified we have... More

Absolutely amazing visit. Decided to do open water dive qualification while on holiday and had the best experience possible. Borja Fernandez was our instructor. Couldn't have asked for better.
