Dive Mike was fantastic! Great little shop so little overhead and offered prices 1/2 of the resort and about 25% less than competitors. Recommended by Lonely Planet as well. We dove at Chikin Ha and Cozumel reef and had a great time with our guides!

Dave Mike were recommended by a friend who'd dived in Playa del Carmen. I did my advanced certificate there with Carolina and went on some dives with Luis to the Chiken Ha cenote and Cozumel with Fidel. They're all very helpful, and friendly and do their best to make your experience the best it can be,

Jorge reintroduced scuba diving to my family.. Though certified we had not made a dive in over five years. A quick but effective refresher and we jumped into the Chikin Ha cenote. Jorge's patience and calm helped my partner overcome her fears and made it the best adventure of our visit to Mexico.

This is the second time we've gone to Dive Mike and they were wonderful both times. The first time my husband took my 2 daughters 15 and 12 on a discovery dive and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The second time was 6 months later and I brought my older daughter there to finish up her open... More

We were doing our Rescue Diver Course which we did both in the sea and the cenotes. It was a tough course as sea conditions were challenging but the staff at Dive Mike were on the ball and made things fun. If you want to spend your time underwater in the PDC area you could not choose a better option... More

We sent our kids, 10 and 13, to Dive Mike for their PADI open water certification. Fidel was very meticulous and patient. We were even able to dive with the kids to experience their first time under the ocean water. I highly recommend if you want an organized, safety first type experience. Thanks Fidel!!

Dive Mike helped us setup two days of diving at Cozumel. Each day we took the ferry to Cozumel at 8:00 am, and took a taxi to Marina Fornatur (new marina) where we dove with Tortuga Carey with Wilberth and Charlie. The dives were great and included two dives each day with a light lunch between dives. Wilberth was a... More

If you are a diver do this one! The Cloud between saltwater from the carribean and the freshwater is simply an amazin experience. The guides at Dive Mike are gems! Do a dive with them, you won't be disappointed! Best wishes to Maria, Fidel and Misail! You gave me something to write about guys! All love and respect! ;)
