We are an ecologically conscious dive center and pride ourselves on being the safest, most forward-thinking center in the area. This is not only because of our amazing location right on the pristine white sandy beach, our custom built dive boats and well-maintained equipment, or our high safety record and professional service - but because we love to dive! « less

We were passengers on the Carnival Dream and this dive was really fun. We were met early on the pier by the Dive shop staff who were very nice and attentive. We then took a van ride to the dive store, loaded into a dive boat and were off. We had a nice small group with only four divers, the... More

I went here in February 2014 and found this place to be exceptionally well organised and run like clockwork. I think the center caters for cruise ship passengers so I am not sure how far off the beaten track they go but the facilities and equipment were pristine and good. There were proper briefings The dive sites were great for... More

This is a small operation. They were very nice people, very well organized and very informative. We took a taxi from the pier and then went to their small house that serves as a business, it is right on the beach, They use a small boat for the diving. Decent dive sites, not as great as Belize or Cozumel but... More

The diving in Mahahual was fairly good. The Dreamtime personnel were all helpful & friendly & safety-conscious. Pablo & Alberto were nice & Richard, the incoming new divemaster is also very nice. If you needed equipment other than tanks & weights, they had a good selection. The dive sites are all very close to shore so it’s not a long... More

I'm a reasonably experienced diver (Advanced Open Water certified) and have been diving all over the world. Like many people who like diving but aren't made of money, I've figured out that a cruise is an easy, cheap way to get a vacation that also includes some diving. But when you book a dive through your cruise ship, sometimes it... More

This was a first experience for our 13 year old son and only a second such dive for me. David and the entire team were very professional, knowledgeable and very patient with us as we learned the ropes. The... More

Very smooth and efficient Organization. The whole team is very helpful and knowledgeable about the reef. We encountered a huge turtle sitting in the reef, some barracudas, lionfish, lobsters etc.. Very nice dive. Don't forget to ask the "Underwater Paparazzis" to come along to do a video or some pictures. They did a very good job as well and sent... More
