We met Tim and Kathrin in 2014 when we spent a week diving with them in Akumal. I wrote a review at that time about their dive shop but this review is about a trip that we all went on in April in The Maldives. They chartered a liveaboard, The MV Stingray, for 2 weeks and we were fortunate enough... More

Thanks to Tim and Katherin for the excellent diving in Cozumel and the Cenotes. I totally recommend Blue Experience for the best that Mexican diving has to offer.

We had a two week family holiday via Thomson's at the Grand Sirenis Hotel Riviera Maya. My son and I are both PADI qualified open water divers and we do holiday diving as part of our main family holiday. Tim and Kathrins dive centre is within the approach road to the entrance of the hotel and is a minutes walk... More

Just returned from a 2-week live-aboard "dive vacation of a lifetime" in the Maldives. This dream trip was organized by Tim and Kathrin of Blue Experience with the rest of us just riding their coat tails. They met us at the Male airport and ensured we knew where we had to meet the next morning to board the MV Stingray,... More

My family and I recently vacationed in Akumal and cannot wait to return! My 14-year old son and I wanted to try scuba, so I did the web research and booked with Blue Experience. Kathryn was our instructor and did a fantastic job. I felt we were in good hands the entire time. As a parent, it's important to trust... More

I can't say I often put on reviews, however as a British Diver I think positive comment is definitely required for Blue Experience. I researched dive operations before arriving in Akumal, and found this company online, the initial responses to the my requests for a varied dive schedule were met with very positive replies, something that could not be said...

Tim took my son on two Bubble Maker dives – in my son’s words “Everything was awesome and saw lots of cool stuff”. His highlight was doing a back roll off the dive boat. I dove at Dos Ojos and everything was top notch! Can’t say enough good things … we will definitely come back! Jason & Peter

Excellent Experience. The guys were fantastic. I had Carlos do my in pool session and the other Carlos take me out on the open water. Will definitely return to dive with these guys.

March 14-18, 2015 This was my 3rd time diving in the Riviera Maya area. First time with Blue Experience. While the previous 2 dive trips were great - after all, anytime underwater (especially warm, salty water) is a great time – this trip had an extra measure of enjoyment. While reviews I read indicated personalized service, this was beyond expectations.... More

Back in 2012, my girlfriend and I received our open water certification from Blue Experience. Our dive instructor at the time was Lindsey. We had such an amazing experience that we didn't hesitate to send Tim an email to schedule a dive for our trip this year. We brought our two kids (ages 12 and 15) and Tim and another... More
