I did my advanced course here with Tim, and few fun dives with Kathrin. I like the fact that they keep their groups small, few times it was just me and Tim. They have a new shop and nice new equipment. Both Kathrin and Tim are very kind and patient. All dives are done in a calm pace, which allows... More

We just got back from a week at Grand Sirenis near Akumal. My kids and I went diving with Tim on a "Discover Scuba Diving" course. We all love the water but live very far from an ocean. This was our second time diving but aren't certified and so started from the beginning with the basics, which was needed and... More

Just returned from a great week's diving with Blue Experience. Tim and Kathrin are passionate about diving and run a very efficient and professional operation - but always with a personal touch. You're definitely not just 'yet another punter'. Safety standards and hire gear are excellent, group sizes are small and the water is warm and clear - what more... More

We dove with Tim and Kathrin from March 2nd to the 9th and would highly recommend their dive shop. We were staying at the Grand Sirenis and they are located right outside of the lobby so it was very convenient for us but they also pick up divers from other resorts. We met each morning at the dive shop to... More

They are a small dive operator, comprising of just Tim and Kathrin at the moment. My fiancé and I found them to be very prompt in correspondence, very friendly, very competent, very safe, very efficient and very accommodating. We had great personal service and really enjoyed diving with them (and met other divers who return to them year after year... More

This was my third time diving with Blue Experience in Akumal. As an experienced diver with over 200 dives I am quite confident in my abilities. Tim & Kathrin took this into consideration and tailor made the dives to accomodate me. I really like to go slow and look for little critters like Hoeseshoe crabs and Peterson shrimp as well... More

Went diving with Tim & Kathrin while we were on vacation in February. I completed my PADI referral dives with them and they gave me the type of experience I was looking and hoping for. I did a ton of research of various dive operators in the area before we left and ultimately chose Blue Diving Experience. Here’s why I... More

Also with Kathrin, Derek and Tim I made 5 more wonderful dives which made 10 this trip. I noted more growth in a number of corals this time... More

My wife had researched where the dive shop was before we arrived. She had emailed Tim and Katheryn and set up our dives. We were getting certified and Tim did an excellent job. All we had was our pool experience and we have snorkled lots but never dove in the ocean. Tim was patient and made my wife feel very... More
