I was nervous about doing my first dive since geting my PADI in November - would i remember how to do everything I needed to? I needn't have worried - I told Octavio when I called to book that i was nervous and when I arrived he immediately put me at ease. He sorted out my equipment then offered me... More

My son (13) and I did the beginners course with Octavio and Nautilus just this week and it was a wonderful experience. The operation is small enough that you get personal attention but experienced enough that you feel very comfortable. Octavio was great in contacting us before our trip and during our trip. I highly recommend giving them a call.

I can't say enough about Octavio and crew. My girlfriend and I did the beginners dive course with him and he lived up to every nice word said about him in these reviews. Patient, courteous, knowledgable, you name it. I highly recommend you pay Nautilus a visit. Email Octavio ahead of time and introduce yourself. He's great over email and... More

I have never been scuba diving before so some of my family and i decided that we were going to do the beginer dive course and then dive with this dive shop. They also come to pick you up. The day that we were supposed to go the ocean was really rough and choppy so the instructor named Octavio came... More

Dive with Octavio and his crew if you go to Cancun. We emailed him once before we left for Mexico and his response was quick and informative. We called him when we got there and he picked us up both days right at our hotel and dropped us of afterwards. The diving was superb and very well organized. We used... More

We just returned from a scuba trip with Nautilus Diving and Octavio as our dive guide. I cannot recommend either more highly. Before the trip, we communicated with Octavio by e-mail. He set everything up including picking us up in the morning from our resort (no charge). We used the shop’s bcs and regs and they were in great condition.... More

I did some dives with Octavio, contacting him previously on his website this January. He pays close attention, does not rush people through the reefs, so you have a chance to observe things closely. He knows the area very well, and, as others said before, tries to show you whatever Cancun underwater has to offer and you might miss, if... More

Octavio is the best dive master ever! I had no problem getting in touch with him months before my trip. He helped me designing my trip so that I could dive the most and spend the least. When the first winter storm hit NY, he even emailed me and asked how I was doing! When I dive with him, he... More

Based on the reviews, I was eager to try Nautilus. On the night of Dec. 19, 2007, the day before we were leaving for Cancun, I tried to call the number on the website, but the telephone company gave us a message saying that the number did not exist. I did not email them before leaving. We went to km... More
