As our last dive was three years ago, we were a bit nervous when going out. No need for this, Abel took really good care of us. We felt very safe and really enjoyed our dive. Catherine (who runs the dive center with Abel) is also exceptionally nice. One of the best dive centers we have tried so far, not... More

We just did 6 dives in two days with Gypsea Divers. I have to say that I couldn't have been happier with their service! On their small launcha, it is only a 5 minute ride out to the reef. From there, you back roll into the water. Exiting the water, you take off your BC there is a ladder to... More

We found Gypsea Divers on Tripadvisor and made plans to snorkel while in port with the Carnival Liberty. After an easy 5 minute ride from the port, Catherine greeted us and got us outfitted before heading out for three hours with Abel. Although conditions weren't great due to some high winds, Abel really made it a great trip for the... More

I was impressed when I first showed up, the staff was friendly and eager to please. I was in Costa Maya on a cruise, and had limited time. The staff booked me on a discovery dive trip as it was the only one going out, which I was fine with as long as I got to dive. When we went... More

We were certified last year and Abel was great about giving us a quick refresher and then on our way. Both Catherine and Abel are attentive, master divers. I feel like I can contact them anytime and get some dive tips. I recommend them hands down. We did 5 dives in 3 days, very laid back and fun. Thanks Catherine... More

I had a great pleasure to dive with Katherine and Abel this year. I can't find the most adequate words to express my impression of diving with them. Excellent work! I spent with them 5 consecutive days and every day was organized perfectly. Every day we started on time as agreed on the day before. Diving was perfectly relaxed, safe... More

Abel and Katherine are such nice people and attentive dive masters. They have small groups most of the time never more than 6 the entire month we were there! We got to meet their kids who were very well behaved ! Just a great experience all around!

I hadn't been diving for a few years and on my first dive my old equipment gave me trouble with a leaky valve. Abel was right at my side, right when I needed help, every time. He managed to make what could have been a very unsettling experience into a good one. I felt very safe and because of his... More

I chanced upon this dive shop during a late evening stroll through the 'town'. They were closed at the time but a friendly local recommended their diving so I visited again next day. And it was a really pleasurable experience for the whole day. Katherine has a really happy and cheerful personality and made sure all the divers, of differing... More
