Good rental pricing and well run under the watchful eye of the friendly and helpful owner. They have showers and lockers that comes free with the rental.

We had an awesome vacation mostly due to the wonderful staff at Akumal Dive Shop. Condor lead us on 9 spectacular dives that were appropriate and enjoyable for all of us. He, along with the other dive shop staff (Francesca, Ingrid), made our trip seamless. I would highly recommend this very friendly, professional and helpful Dive team.

We went to visit one of the most famous and beautiful mexican cenotes: Dos Ojos. After a 15 minutes drive from the Akumal Drive Shop, we arrived to Dos Ojos and our guide, Marco, took us snorkeling. It was a great experience: an adventure underwater. Marco made us feel safe and secure the whole time. I booked the visit from... More

Bought a snorkeling mask here because my tube broke. The woman running the shop gave me a free life jacket for the day which was very nice! They sell tshirts and basic snorkeling gear. Reasonable prices- as cheap as in any sport store in the usa. You will see turtles and rays in the water in front of the shop.... More

Nicest staff and very knowledgeable. They are laid back but professional. My husband and son went on 2 reef scuba dives and were thoroughly impressed. More dives to come in the cenotes. If you want to rent gear for snorkeling, diving or water sports or to buy this is where I would recommend.

We did the evening sunset cruise with Akumal Dive Shop for the 2nd time this year and it was even better than the last! The captain and his new "first mate" (an adorable yellow lab puppy) greeted us at the shore of Akumal Bay and took us in a small motor boat to the larger 36 foot Catamaran anchored a... More

Down once again diving with the best dive shop on the Riviera Maya. Great air fills, nitrox available, great dive masters and good boat captains. It's drift diving in 1 to 2 knot currents and all the Dive sites at 10 to 20 minutes from shore. Sea turtles on almost every dive, good reef fish and critters. Easiest best diving... More

We visited Akumal Beach and found this dive shop after about 5 locals tried to convince us to take a snorkel tour with them. They are located to the right of the beach access entrance facing the shoreline. $15usd gets you all your snorkel gear, life vest and use of their shower and bathroom for the day. The shower is...
