My husband and I have always wanted to try scuba. One of the reasons we picked Puerto Morelos was because we had read that the scuba diving was some of the best in this area. We wish we could have booked more dives, but our trip was short and we had limited time with all the other excursions we booked.... More

I dove with Beceo Exabay on the reef off Puerto Morelos. There some really amazing gorgonians (soft corals) down there and many different kinds of sponges. Several species of fish were schooling. We saw both a spotted eagle ray and a sting ray. Maria Guzman is the instructor/dive guide. She's a very experienced and very safety conscious dive guide. I... More

I had a fantastic day diving with Luz. She is a marine biologist and has been diving since she was 8 years old. They aren't the typical dive operation with a dive shop. They are a husband and wife and they know all of cancun and the surrounding areas like the back of their hand. I will definitely call Luz... More

We booked the Swimming with Whale Sharks excursion with Luz & her crew in July. OMG, what an incredible experience. Words cannot even describe how incredible it is to be in the water right next to the whale sharks. We booked prior to heading to Mexico with a small deposit and provided our sizing. Luz picked us up at our... More

Luz is a marine biologist and uses her knowledge of the reef system to provide a great snorkel experience. Third private snorkel tour at Puerto Morales, first with Luz and by far the best.

We had an outstanding experience on our two dives with Luz and Mario. They were obviously familiar with the area and made us instantly comfortable. Part of our group was certified and others participated as Discover Scuba students and they did a great job of prepping everyone for our dives. Mario took some outstanding photos for us. We can only... More
