These guys assigned Luis to take my 8 and 9 year old grandkids for a Bubble Maker dive. The shop provided excellent equipment and Luis was exceptional with the kids in quality instruction and guidance under the water. Along with the magnificent Akumal Bay - a great adventure for everyone for a day!

We were staying nearby and walked down the beach to this dive shop our first day. We booked a cenotes tour and a tour to snorkel out in the bay right there onsite for the next day. The cenotes tour was awesome! It was just myself and my husband with two guides, Miguel and Fernando. I can't say enough nice... More

My 21 year old son and I signed up for the Discover Scuba experience, neither having done it before. Marco was wonderful -- patient and clear -- he inspired trust. He also observed our level of comfort, and asked us a lot of questions, so it was easy to share what concerned us. And it was just the two of... More

We booked a couple of excursions through the dive shop. The staff was always friendly, and easy to deal with. The night snorkel tour we booked was awesome, HOWEVER, things were a little strange. The tour guide pulled a ring behind him and pulled a woman around as we snorkeled. Whatever, but it made snorkeling very difficult as we kept... More

A few days ago, and despite not having perfect weather conditions, my children and husband had a fantastic experience scuba diving with an amazing group of professionals of Akumal Dive Shop. Aitor was a great teacher, and together with Marco, Pedro and Ivan, they were a wonderful team that encouraged my children in their first dive. Now, my children and... More

My family and I did the 40 foot scuba dive and it was really amazing!! It was so beautiful, and we saw quite a few sea turtles. Our guide Marco was an absolute pleasure and really really knew his stuff. The whole experience felt safe and comfortable. We were clearly in very good hands. One note- if you are easily... More

Gonzalo Arcila and his team are qualified professionals with a long and tested track record. I highly... More

Can't say enough about this place -- I arranged a bay snorkel tour for 12 family members, ranging from 13-75 years old. My mother has severe mobility issues, and Akumel Dive shop could not have been more accomodating. We were met at the door by Vincent, who got us a parking place right by the door and helped us get...
