Cat and Abel are both very nice and super professional. We dove two days with them, both times we were the only divers which was great as we practically had a private tour. The reef is healthy and colorful, and Abel was great pointing out all the small stuff too. Cat was quick in responding to our emails (something other... More

I used to have my dive card a long time ago, but I wanted to see if there was a way I could share the experience with my boys (14-18). We went to Gypsea on a recommendation from a local, and Catherine immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable. She explained that her husband Abel would be able to take... More

The three of us got our open water certifications with Catherine about a year ago. We had really different levels of experience. I had already done a certification as a child, my husband is daring and always good at trying new things and our friend admits himself that he avoids trying new things and decided to do this as a...

At the last minute, we booked a snorkeling trip with Gypsea. Our guide was fantastic- great sense of humor and some pretty crazy stories. We (group of only three) close to do a shallow snorkel trip- the reef was pristine and seriously alive with fish. Our guide did a good job of pointing out the various types of coral and... More

We were very happy to choose gypsea divers! Our guide Abel was very professional and a lovely and funny guy. The dives were very relaxed with him and Abel spend lots of time for us. We would go there every time again!

I'd gotten certified a month ago, but had not been in the water again since. I was a bit nervous - especially going 60 feet - which is much deeper than I'd gone before. Catherine made me feel at ease and 'happy to be diving again' before we even got in the boat. She was right there with me as... More

We had only a few hours in which to explore Costa Maya because our cruise ship was only docked there for a short time, and while we knew we wanted to do some snorkeling, we didn't know where to go for a good experience. As we were walking the beach we happened upon Gypsea Divers. The price to take us... More

If you are looking for large boats, lots of fellow divers, with rigid scheduling...look elswhere. However, if you are looking for exceptional personal service for all skill levels, and small boats...you have found paradise! My wife and I completed 10 dives with Gypsea over the course of our 1 week stay in Mahahual. We were 3 AOW divers traveling with... More

Wonderful dives with Abel and Catherine. the dives where great and my wife realy enjoyed the snorkel trip. We highly recommend this small but friendly diveshop. The rental gear is high quality, almost new at fair price. Juan the Captain was helpful and was following us on the surface while we were diving. A good healthy reef with rays, Barracudas,... More

This was our first stop for diving on this Costa Maya vacay and Catherine was recommended so we didn't hesitate. I had some reservations b/c I'd been blowing through safety stops - I felt totally at ease with her - turns out my BC was getting stuck and every time I tried to dump air I inflated..ooops. It turns out... More
