As a fairly new diver, it can be tough trying to find the right dive company when you get to a new location, especially in the more touristy areas. Juan Carlos runs an extremely professional shop that takes PADI requirements very seriously. He wants you to have a great experience, but safety and learning is foremost. I went out a... More

Where to begin... We weren't sure what dive company to choose and selected CSC from this website. One concern we had is that our resort was new and is quite a distance from Cancun, so we expected that they wouldn't travel to pick us up to do the Cozumel dives. We were staying at Secrets Playa Mujeres which is 25... More

My wife and I are intermediate divers and have been diving with several operators. We used this site to select our dive company in Cancun, and it was a no brainer to choose Cancun Scuba Center with it's extraordinarily high ranking. I was a bit skeptical about how a dive operation can receive such a high ranking, but Juan Carlos... More

Juan Carlos and Martin were the best dive masters I have had the pleasure of diving with - for the first time in my experience, I needed a little help and they recognized it immediately, got me settled quickly, and made the rest of my experience absolutely outstanding. These guys are not the slick diving operation that caters to the... More

We found diving with Cancun Scuba Center an excellent experience. Their staff were very professional, yet flexible and friendly. They know their trade like no one else, after over 20 years of diving these beautiful waters. We saw a range of marine life and the best wreck I have ever dived in. Perhaps, best of all, their prices are very... More
