Scuba Mau was an awesome dive shop. There were five people in our group and we had the boat to ourselves. Our group was made up of divers from ages 16 - 65 at varying dive experience. Jesus, our guide, was about as good as you can get. He was great at telling us about the dive before we went into the water as well as pointing out the wildlife. Scuba Mau staff had all the gear we needed and kept it at the shop for the next day use. We dove 3 separate days at 6 different sites. The fruit and sweet bread between dives was just what we needed to refuel. After our last day, Jesus brought us a sweet treat to commemorate our time together. We highly recommend Jesus and Scuba Mau! Cozumel is doing a wonderful job keep their citizens and tourist safe. Don't hesitate visiting this beautiful island.

So while SCUBA shops on Cozumel are like ants at a picnic... Mau's operation packs a punch for being a 'smaller' operation. Forget the boats that send out 30 divers at one time. Mau keeps his group sizes in check, so you can enjoy your diving without being booted in the head by 10 other divers. This is more important that you think...

Mau also somehow always ends up with the friendliest dive masters. Always entertaining and they can spot the oddball fishlife a mile away. Still not sure how they do it, but we see more wildlife with Mau than any other shop.

Skip all the other shops, the in-resort shops, do yourself a favor and check out Mau's operation, and really end up with a dive experience above and beyond the rest.

I did my first dive with Mau, who got me a "brush up" on my certification in the harbor before sending us out on the boat the next day. He was so kind, and his dive masters, Raphael and Jesus were so competent, that it absolutely MADE my first dive experience the best it could have possibly been! We went on two two-tank dives with Scuba Mau, and I would recommend his crew to ANYBODY. Our captain, the crew, the dive masters...they were professional, caring, competent and calm. It was a trip I will never forget. Our groups were small, our boat was fast, our breaks were as breath-taking as the dives. The only sadness was that the harbor was closed for our third dive and I didn't get to make my other two. But we WILL be back! And I would never use anybody but Scuba Mau and his team! From calling us back to arrange them to gathering up our gear and having ready on the boat, our dives were hitchless.

Better than ever - six dives, all great Cozumel classics with lots of great leads on multiple swim throughs and excellent site picks by the dive masters. All great dives and lots of critters. Uncrowded boat, valet service for your gear, roll in diving - it's as good as you can get at Cozumel with Scuba Mau. Highly recommended. My first dives at Cozumel were with this shop, and repeated visits for over 60 dives Scuba Mau has only gotten better.

I did 6 fun dives with Scuba Mau during my stay at Cozumel and had a blast! The team is really chilled and they speak Spanish, English and French (probably more but those were the ones we were interested in). BIG thanks the whole team including the Captain of the boat TAU and his crew which were amazing and very service oriented. They made us enjoy our dives to the maximum. I would recommend this Dive Shop for anyone (no matter the level) who visits this beautiful island. Thanks Mauricio, Sandy, Mathilde, Diego and Chucho. Communication was easy and clear even before our arrival. Best 2021 to you all and looking forward to seeing you very soon

Everything you want in a dive shop. Highly recommend for either SSI or PADI divers. The crew was safe, friendly, and helpful. We worked with 2 dive masters.
Jesus was our dive master. He spoke excellent English, was very attentive to all divers, and showed us lots of sea life.
Mike was patient, native English speaker, and certified to teach a million SSI courses.
Shop was clean. Small, fast boats cuts travel time and maximizes dive time. Equipment well maintained. Bathrooms were the best I’ve ever seen in a dive shop.
We can’t wait to return.

Diving in Cozumel with Scuba Mau was the most fun I have ever had on any dive! The crew and dive masters are so professional and friendly. They keep you safe, put a smile on your face, and are so accommodating. We did 8 dives over 3 days, including a night dive. The reefs and all the dive sites were so amazing. The marine life we saw was so plentiful and the water was so crystal clear and warm. The visibility is insane - the best I have ever experienced. Our dive masters Diego, Jesus, and Rafael were so professional and really had good eyes to find all the creatures in the water. Captain Angel and sailer Rafael are very helpful, friendly and are so hilarious. They will definitely make you laugh and have a fun time on the boat. We also had the pleasure to meet Mau, who treated us like family. After one of our dives, we were heading into town for some seafood, and Mau gave us amazing food recommendations and offered to give us a ride as well. Overall, this dive shop is just one big family and everyone is welcome here. Professional service, good people, and beautiful marine life. What more can you ask for? Thanks for everything, Scuba Mau. See you soon!

Mau and Vic are the best on the island at arranging dives and providing for the divers. I am a novice diver and have always felt safe. All of the instructors are top notch and super safety minded. I can't imagine diving anywhere else in Cozumel.

I stayed at Beds Friends hostel and Mariel who works at Mau was there. She was so friendly and shared her knowledge about dive sites, her diving experiences, and some cool videos of spotted eagle rays (which I got to see!). Everyone at the hostel and the dive shop were friendly and I was able to contact Mauritzio and book some dives easily. Everyone at the shop was friendly and helpful. In my group, I had a lot more air left so one divemaster and I broke off from the group and stayed down longer and we saw some large turtles! Great experience diving in Cozumel and the team at Mau!
