Akumal Dive Adventures offers open water dives, PADI certifications, night diving, and cenote diving. We run three trips per day 7 days a week: 9am, 11am and 2pm, visiting over 30 diverse dive locations. We provide both equipment rental and rinsing facilities as well as areas for storing equipment. Reservations for certification courses, accommodation packages, and diving may be made in advance through our US office. Akumal Dive Adventures prides itself in a non-invasive approach to scuba diving. We encourage visitors to enjoy this underwater paradise without impacting or touching the fragile formations. Accompanying each dive trip is our professional boat crew, including a licensed captain and PADI dive master or instructor. The water temperatures average 84°F in the summer months and 78°F in the winter months. Dive safety precautions are of utmost importance to us.

Small diving center, very well equipped, very nice staff, very knowledgeable about fishes, marine life, the area Great way to practice your Spanish if you wish or have someone who speaks English. Small group for diving which allows people to meet new diving buddies. Great spots right in front, large variety of sites. I did my PADI with Nestor and... More

Amazing group between Nemo, Lupe, and Moises. This is a small dive shop that is completely focused on your dive experience. They handle all the equipment so all you have to do is show up and dive. My Daughter also did her open water certification under the excellent teaching of Nestor "Nemo". We completed a total of 15 dives with... More

If you are an experienced diver this is not the place but if you are not certified or want your kids to experience diving ask for Condor. Great dive master for kids

It is a great location and you get personal diving experience like no other place. sometime it would just be me and my husband and the boat captain and the dive master. Love every moment of the diving. I would recommend it to anyone either a... More

Akumal Dive Adventures did an exceptional job of accomodating both beginner and experienced divers on the same trip. Dives were close to shop (very short boat ride, perfect for anyone who has motion sickness) and interesting with a fairly good variety of sea life. Dive masters were helpful and friendly. Equipment was well-maintained. I would definitely recommend the shop for... More

The small outboard motor boat may seem a little rickety, but the dives are 5 minutes from shore - and Lupe is a wonderful dive master. The diving here is fabulous, and he was sure to point out the turtles, sharks, and all the other underwater critters. Very friendly

We did five dives with Akumal Dive Adventures and had a great time. My boyfriend did the referral course finishing up his open water certification and I am already certified. We were able to dive together and most days had the boat completely to ourselves. The dive masters were knowledgeable and friendly and always reviewed the dive plan before each... More

Don't go to this shop if you just want to rent snorkel gear and see the reef in half moon bay. The prices for the gear are higher than stated on their website. The gear is terrible and cheap (got blisters for the first time) The guy that rented us the gear gave us no suggestions and basically just gave... More

Nice small DiveOp. No catttle boat here. Simple check in, good predive briefing, everybody friendly. First day it was just my wife & I on the boat, personal service! Second day, two other couples. Great plant/sponge life in this area, not like the wiped-out Cozumel reefs. Saw at least ten turtles on our last dive, three within ten feet of... More
