I started diving in 2003, my 1st few dives in in Playa Del Carmen, where we have our "home base" in the Yucatan. Mike and Margaret Geren, owners, have always been so accommodating and patient while we make the ferry trip over from the mainland to dive with them. Their dive guides, and boat skippers are so helpful, and Francisco... More

We dove and stayed twice with Papa Hogs. The first time we were very new, and the divemasters, who are locals, were distant and not overly helpful. The first time we were there we spent a sleepless couple of nights due to blasting music until very late. Second time was better, no blasting music. The food is ok, reasonably priced,... More

my wife and have dived with hogs for the past decade. my wife is a nervous diver so we use a private dive master for her, they are all competent, safe and sensitive to her needs, she is especially fond of rocky. Margarate always sets her up with him. look forward to seeing them all in april Rick&Luci

I have been diving in Cozumel for over 20 years. I have also been diving over a pretty good chunk of the planet. I have always found Papa Hogs to be a top notch dive operation. If knowledgeable dive masters and personalized service are your top concerns, this is the place. Above all, safety is their priority, but often it's... More

I recently went on a group trip staying at Villablanca and diving with Papa Hogs. I'll start with the positives. The price would be pretty difficult to beat. So, if price is your primary consideration, this just might be the place for you. The boat was on time daily and it got all of us back to the dock at... More

This is about my 5th time coming here and getting one of their package deals. Presently Hogtoberfest is going on. Their packages are flexible, but they have their own rooms or you can book at nearby Villablanca Hotel (my usual choice -see separate review). Breakfast can also be included (at Papa Hogs restaurant) and the special is very filling. After... More

I got some good dives while certifying with my family. We have been back since and just this month booked with them while we stopped... More

My wife and I dove wityh Papa Hogs as part of the United Dive Club. We were treated very well and had no issues. Each day we met our dive boat and guides and were taken to some of the best reefs in the world. The Guides knew the water like the back of their hands. They took us ot... More

This is my second year visiting Cozumel with my Dive Club using Papa Hog's. Margaret was great both times going back and forth through e-mail prior to visit and then making sure we were ok when we arrived. Dive instructor Mike was also excellent. Would recommend and definitely come again.
