Experience : After emailing a handful of dive shops, me and my wife selected Nautilus Diving for our first time scuba and PADI certification. Octavio and Sherri responded with all the information we requested. They were very responsive to emails; (Wait till evening local time for their reply). They are reasonable flexible in creating customized dive plans. We discussed our... More

We were able to do two (2 tank) dives with Nautilus. They are very very considerate of everyone. As a newly minted certified diver, I didn't feel overwhelmed or intimidated. The attendees take care of EVERYTHING. All you need to do is show up and be ready to enjoy your day. Equipment is positioned on the boat. Drinks and food... More

My first time diving with Nautilus. Clemente Herrera was my dive master. He was great at explaining about the wreck we were diving and the time and depth. I was using an underwater camera and got great shots of Eagle Rays,about 20 in formation swimming by the wreck and a Nurser Shark on the wreck. The dive area was rough... More

Heading to Cancun for five days, I wanted to do just one day of diving with my kids. My kids are certified but young (11 and 13), so I am always looking for small groups/boats and personal attention for them. I chose Nautilus based on the reviews here on TA. I emailed them through their website in the evening and... More

Are you interested in diving? Do you have concerns holding you back? Are you a woman traveling alone and wondering if you can have a good time? Well, two days, 4 dives plus pool session before I got my PADI certificate! Vicente was my buddy and I had great 1-1 training with him. Very professional, communicative and took great care... More

I contacted them before our trip to Cancun to set up two mornings of diving. Octavio was very prompt and informative in his responses. He gave us directions on how to get there using public bus & via taxi. Tip- use the bus! Once there, we were quickly signed in, and I realized I forgot my C card in the... More

We booked our first diving experience on line, the response and attention received by Octavio was fantastic. He provided detailed information, location, cost, how to get to the dive center, who would be our instructor. We are two older adults (68) with no diving experiences! We were somewhat nervous but our dive master Clemente quickly put us at ease. He... More

On my recent trip to Cancun, I had the fortunate opportunity to get my open water certification with Nautlius Diving. My instructor was Sherri, and she was amazing. I worked with her 1-on-1, and she explained each skill to me with clarity and precision, and made sure I was completely comfortable with them when we practiced both in the pool... More

I had done the beginner's dive here 4 years ago and of course i chose them again for my second time around. Clemente was my instructor and he is the best! I felt safe at all times and got... More

We had an awesome time! As a first time scuba diver, I was hesitant of my ability to keep up with the rest of the group, but it turned out to be an amazing experience and I definitely would've regretted not going. Lots of ocean life and very cool things to see under the water at diving sites. Our instructor,... More
