Me and my girlfriend had a very good experience with Socrates and his team. The tanks where really full, over 3000 psi and they allowed us to dive until finishing the air, even if other divers finished earlier I could continue to dive until the limit. More than the dive we also had an interesting Mexican history lesson All the... More

Night dive. No professionalism, Low battery on the flashlight, poor dive master, poor spot. Tourist trap ! just want your money, go away to discover scuba diving !! Without giving names, I tried three others diving centre on cozumel who was sooooo much better. Go away and try another one !

We did our PADI Open Water Referral Dives with Nirvana Dive Shop based on a recommendation from friends in Dominican Republic. We are glad we listened to them! Our instructor was Socrates who is a very experienced divemaster. I would highly recommend booking your dives with him. Socrates was very serious about safety and making sure we had a strong...

You would be making a mistake not to dive with Socrates and his shop. Very informative and personal diving experience, also was a great way to earn the open water certificate.

Socrates and the team were great instructors! I haven't dived for a year and they were more ham happy to run through everything with us again to ensure we were up to speed for our dive. They also shared some amazing photos with us after! I highly recommend!

Nirvana Diving treats you like family and really caters to your needs. Socrates and his staff really care more about your diving experience and enjoyment than just making a buck! They go out even with just 2 divers (and never more than 6) and go to any dive site in the park, not just the nearest reefs. They truly let... More

Super-professional, super-nice and always patient and accomodating. Gear is decent and in good shape. Under the... More

Four days with Socrates and Josue! Super nice and had so much fun! Strongly recommend and would return if ever go back to cozumel. Oh and he's good at responding email requests too, so it was a plus for planning ahead of time.
