Playa Maroma shop is amazing
Oct 2020 • Solo
Truly a pleasure to learn to dive from these folks, the instructors and staff go above and beyond to make sure you learn safely and have fun. The many nearby dive sites are the perfect depth to get certified at because you can only go 18m max deep as an OWD, plus they are beautiful. Also a short boat ride away from beautiful Cozumel sites and cenotes if you have time after certification for an excursion. Everyone kept to COVID safety precautions too. Thank you Danny, Ricardo, Adrian, El Capitan (x2), and the rest of the staff for the great experience. Also they have a great underwater photographer/videographer for hire, ask about Tommy!

Amazing scuba dives
Dec 2019 • Solo
I had the absolute pleasure of learning how to scuba dive with the help from pro dive in Catalonia Playa Maroma, mexico. They were amazing from the start! I had an great lesson in the pool and before we went to the ocean. I was very comfortable to go on my first scuba dive. My instructor Maria took her time in explaining everything and made sure I understood everything without rushing me through the lesson. After my first dive I enjoyed it so much I signed up for the scuba open water certification and did an additional 2 dives. The whole team at pro dive was amazing! Thank you Matias, Luis, Murillo, Angel, Eli and a huge thank you to Maria my dive instructor!! Scuba diving is now one of my favourite hobbies and I'm already looking forwards to my next diving adventure!

Way to make a holiday dream come true
Oct 2018 • Solo
From the first chat with Jenny in PlayaCar to my final dive of the holiday everything was so easy and well organised, what started as an enquiry into a fun dive dive turned into a dream come true.

Thanks to all at Pro Dive especially Jenny, Nicole and Francis for your patience.

Lexie and the team at Pro dive are the best Ive come across
Jun 2018 • Couples
Me and my partner wanted to do some diving in Mexico, so booked with pro dive after we decided these were the most affordable and well reviewed dive center.

This was the best decision. My partner did his open water dive course and I (who already had my OW) was able to go along with him.
We had such an amazing time with Lexie that we decided to both do our advance course, we were a bit worried about money as we hadn’t planned to do it, but of all the places I’ve dived in the world, I felt like Lexie was the best dive teacher I had ever come across and we both wanted to do it. It was the best decision. Between her and Eli (another instructor at pro dive) we were able to complete our course at a reasonable price as well as even going on to do or nitrox course.

I felt like I learnt so much each time we dived with Lexie ( we ended up doing 0 dives... we couldn’t get enough)

I could not recommend enough.

Water is amazing, teachers were amazing and the turtles were amazing

Amazing experience getting PADI open water certification with Dexter
Apr 2018 • Friends
I originally was going to just go on a discovery dive while on vacation with a friend. Dexter instructed me on the classroom stuff and we proceeded to have two amazing dives. I realized right away he was an great instructor and this was an opportunity I couldn't miss and decided to go and get my PADI open water certification. He was very thorough in his instruction and I had a lot of fun, especially with my last open water dive in Cozumel. Glad I got to learn to dive with a lot of one on one time instead of in a huge group, and would totally recommend both Dexter and everyone else I met at Pro Dive.

Never did I ever think I would be a certified scuba diver. Going from being absolutely terrified of water let alone the ocean to loving the underwater life, this girl couldn't be happier.This experience I will hold close to my heart for ever and the people even closer.
There was a little mix up and/or late communication with my OWD course in the beginning, but the ProDive employees were very professional and they got everything back on track without any stress or hassle. Leon was amazing from day one. He did what he needed to do to make my experience as exciting and unforgettable as he could with getting me booked in as soon as possible.
Dexter had to quickly get my refresher course organized, me suited up for that and all the paper work done before I went to do my OWD course. He was so professional, patient and kind. While I was doing my refresher course he made sure I was confident with my equipment and myself before I went to do my PADI OWD.
When I finally arrived at the ProDive Shop Miss. Karina was excitingly waiting for me. She is so fun, spunky, full of energy and good vibes. She made me feel so safe and secure. Our briefings were very thorough and straight to the point, she explained what we were going to work on with every dive, If I had any questions she answered very professionally and made sure I understood everything completely before we boarded the boat. This woman is so personable and very relatable. I am so grateful that my fellow Canadian girl was the one chosen to be my buddy, mentor, instructor, teacher and now friend. Thank you Karina!!!!
Every cent I paid was well worth it. I gained my certification, my self confidence, love for the ocean, the exhilarating adrenaline when I see the creatures and now some amazing friends.
This was the best experience ever!! Thank you to ProDive Mexico. I will be back.

Best experience ever!!!
Apr 2018 • Couples
My couple and I decided to get the PADI Open Water certification while enjoying our vacations at the Occidental Grand Xcaret resort. From the very beginning the hole staff was very kind and professional; they took all the needed time to explain and show us every single exercise that we had to accomplish in the pool as well as in the sea. Pedro Casar was our instructor and his professionalism is outstanding and I think we couldn't have had a better instructor. Just looking forward to go diving again.
