I always enjoy places with personal treatment. PADI diving centres are usually overcrowded, and DMs do not always have the time or energy to give each customer the attention they require. This does not happen at Scuba Mau, as their main concern is to make...More

This was my wife and my first ocean diving experience and it is one we'll never forget. The locations were amazing and the dive masters were patient (important for novice divers) and fun. And while they were patient with us, I believe they balanced that...More

I was certified in Cozumel 30 years ago. Started diving with Mau when he opened Scuba Mau and would never dive with anyone else. Top notch staff, relaxed dive atmosphere and love the small fast boats. This is the place for a great SCUBA experience.

Looking for a twilight and night dive (3 Replies)
I am wanting to do a twilight and night dive on this Friday, November 12 and looking to see if anyone else is interested. I am staying at the Fiest Americana and am planning to do most of my diving with Scuba Mau. I am open to diving with anyone interested in doing so.

Have you talked to Opal or Mau, I would think they have some night dives going out or are wanting to shore dive on your own w/a buddy? How long are you there? My husband and I arrive in Coz on Sat and are diving w/Scuba Mau beginning the 14th.

Dive with Scuba Mau in Cozumel (6 Replies)
Great newly opened, new equipment dive shop located beneath Papa Hogs on the main drag. $4 cab ride from Vista del Mar, on your left side, if you hit Park Royal you have missed it. Mau and Opal are the owners and we went diving with them. Cheap rates too!!! We just got back on April 3rd and plan on going back to get certified with them in the fall!! Tell them Bob and Mimi say hi!!!

Sounds like the same offices that Pelagic Ventures worked out of 2 years ago & there was an Opal working for Troy then. If it's her she is a very friendly & happy type.

New dive shop Scuba Mau? (6 Replies)
I read on scuba board that there is a new dive shop called Scuba Mau, I was just wondering if anyone has any information on it? I tried their website, but it could not get it to come up.

Scuba Mau is a brand new dive shop that we found the first week they opened in March. Mau and Opal have a lot of experience working at other shops. They were very accomodating and have all new equipment. They are located under Papa Hog's Cafe. I have been on their website and written a review on this website. Scuba Mau was one of our best travel experiences. So much so that we are going back with our kids and 2 other families in August. Any other ? , just ask. Debbi
