My wife and I enjoyed the personal attention and the diving experience with Maya Diving October 4th and 6th, 2010. Having gone diving with other operators in the Playa Del Carmen area and on Cozumel, we found the dive staff/guides Deon & Halle and support staff Enrique and Eduardo to be most friendly and accomplished, and more importantly that they followed proper diving safety procedures. My wife and I have enjoyed diving in the area and over the years and have encountered many great under sea world creatures of the Caribbean. This year during our diving at Dreams Tulum with Maya Diving, we dove at Tankah where we encountered the “mirror” fish (silversides). Millions of small 2 inch silvery fish swam liquidly around and through the coral swim-throughs, always with predators like Ceros cruising at their perimeter. At times, we swam with silver clouds of these little fish completely surrounding us, inches from our bodies yet we could never touch a single one of them. As we swam under coral ledges, the streams of mirror fish would either pour by us as if they were a stream of underwater mercury or would engulf us to the point where you could not see a foot. Awesome experience! Would we go back….in a heartbeat!!!! We found the water temperature in October for diving to be very comfortable and no wetsuit is necessary. Maya Diving is located on the beach front at the Dreams Tulum all inclusive resort. Dreams Tulum is an A+ resort in our book. We have traveled to many other all inclusives around the Caribbean including numerous Sandals, Club Med, Palladium and Iberostar. Dreams Tulum is not to big nor too small. The beachfront is white fine sand that streaches a half mile either direction before you enounter another resort. The water in front of the resort is shallow and sandy and there is a very good quality barrier reef that lies several hundred yards from the beach for those that are adept at snorkeling. There are no jet skis, no parasailing, and no boating activities in general due to the barrier reef and shallowness. Maya Diving uses a panga for diving. PERFECT!
