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.

This is the first time diving in the winter, again with Lupe in charge. His right hand man was Moises. These guys know the reef so very well. Lupe is the most relaxed dive... 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

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
