I was staying in a resort but got advised to go to Tank ha by someone on the beach. It was an amazing experience. Sites were selected based on what I already did or not.

The staff here is the best I have experienced anywhere in the Carribean. I had several questions that I emailed the shop regarding whether or not my 2 daughters (one a Jr scuba diver and the other snorkels but doesen't dive) could accompany me on a dive. Carolina responded with a very thorough and professional email proposing a dive which... More

I have been diving with multiple dive operators in Playa del Carmen, and I choose Tank-Ha as my first choice to dive with. The owners, staff, guides, boat crew are all top shelf. They own their own boat as many shops lease space on available boats. This gives me the confidence to know that when I surface, the boat will... More

Our group consisted of divers who had dove many, many times to diver that had dove only a few times, snorkelers who had snorkeled many time to some who had only been a few times. This was one of my favorite trips. I understand the shop is under new ownership, Matt, and I only have great things to say about... More

From the moment I first called and spoke to one of the owners, Matt, on the phone through the last of our 8 dives, everyone at Tank-Ha was amazing. We had one Advanced OW, one Jr OW (13 y.o) and one 13 y.o completing his OW. They came up with a great schedule whereby my son and I dove Playa... More

Carolina is great to work with. She took the time to help us understand all the local diving options and come up with a plan that met our needs for our spring break vacation in Playa Del Carmen.

Did 2 local dives off one of their fast boats saw some amazing fish and the dive guide Arat gave a good briefing and did a buddy check prior. Very professional and Arat made the dive a pleasant one and guided us round the reefs showing all the nooks and crannies the fish etc were. Would definitely use the centre... More

Did two dives and chose to go back for another two. We really liked the shop - the price was reasonable and Matt (the owner) and the dive masters were super knowledgeable. The owner seemed to really care about safety and great dive experiences - not maximizing the number of customers. "Irati"was awesome - a marine biologist and dive master,... More
