We dove three days with Pepe Dive Mahaual in March 2015. The first impression with the owner Chano was nice and everything seemed to be as they should be in a small dive centre. The first day was great diving with our DM Raul. All went well and Raul was a nice guy, good diver and showed good customer service.... More

I highly recommend Mahahual Dive Centre. Jorge and Norma are extremely professional, responsible and courteous. The equipment provided was in excellent shape and they were very thorough in all safety checks and pre-dive instructions. You can feel their passion about the area's reefs and wildlife. It is a true pleasure to have them as underwater guides.

I have dove with Jorge for the last 4 years. He is very safe and knowledgable in regards to diving. I would like to mention how well his other Dive Masters treated us and a special mention to Norma and Boat Captain Lucio and thanks for the Lion Fish ceviche. It was incredible. If you are looking for great dive... More

Really enjoyed diving with these guys. Made us feel right at home. I use up my air fairly quickly and it was nice to see the dive masters equipped with an extra long regulator hose so that I could share air and stay with the group. This was really nice as I didn't have to make the whole group surface... More

If you like dishonesty and mediocre diving, this is the place for you. Other than the the DM Norma, this place is a disaster.

Besides airport transfers for 18 divers being changed without notice and made to wait for 6 hours for the 4 hour ride from Cancun, a dive shop owner that lies to your face over and over and staff that likes to grab sleeping turtles and shine lights in their eyes or touch sharks I guess this place is ok.

My son and I had the pleasure of diving with the team from the Mahahual Dive Centre on a recent family vacation. We spent three days diving, and I wish we would have had time for more!!
