I would highly recommend booking with Erik if you are in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area on vacation and looking for a dive excursion. Erik was extremely responsive and accommodating through the entire experience. I called him last minute to book a dive the next day, and he was happy to accommodate us. Don't book cavern diving through a resort, they will rip you off, Erik's prices are far more reasonable! Off the bat Erik was very welcoming when we arrived at the dive shop. We were lucky to have a small group for the dives. I am not sure if that was intentional or all groups are small for the cenote dives in his shop, but either way it makes a big difference. When we arrived at the cenote we were the first ones there, which I later found out was intentionally planned so we beat the crowds. We were the first group in, and after our first dive we saw hordes of other divers entering the cenote. It was a nice touch to experience it alone before all of the other groups joined in. The other groups we saw had at least 5 or more divers, whereas our dive just had the two of us plus Erik which made the experience much more enjoyable. The sights in the cavern were awesome and Erik was great at pointing out specific things to look at. I would definitely recommend booking a trip to the Taj Mahal Cenote with Erik. One quick tip: wear long pants/shirt or bring high caliber bug spray - the mosquitoes in the jungle are relentless!

I was staying in Akumal Bay with my family on holiday and my son and I wanted to drift dive in Cozumel. We booked with Erik at Beyond Diving as it is one of the only dive shops that offered direct journey's from the mainland to the dive sites at Cozumel. We didn't want to lose hours negotiating the ferries. Erik and his shop is a small outfit, and because of this, the service is awesome. We paid the extra to have Erik as our own guide and this was worth it, as if like us you have never drift dived before, you will want the assurance of having someone with you who knows what they are doing. I was impressed with the communication before we got to Mexico. I also liked the fact I could pay in advance, and as I like bigger tanks (15L) as I breath a little heavy, this was all arranged. He even had Nitrox waiting for us as requested. I also felt assured when he checked we were suitably qualified and experienced before we booked the dives (this is not for beginners). The first dive was the Santa Rosa wall which was 27m down and you slowly drift yourself back up to the surface. Amazing sights. The second was the Yucab Reef which was shallower and probably had more life on it. I would highly recommend this outfit as the service was second to none, they have good quality gear, and going direct you get back in time to enjoy some afternoon and evening at your resort. Thanks Erik!

You may read my review from last year called "Small outfit, best diving...." Jan 2018 Once again, Erik and his staff have gone above and beyond with us. Cozumel, local reefs, cenote and some advanced training in Sidemount diving. Always Professional, always pleasant and provide the highest caliber instruction and services. Thank you Erik, Sandra and crew for another great week! IslandDoctor, Jo, Mike, BigG, Littleg See you next year!

My friend Jason and I were planning on staying in Cozumel just to scuba, but once we realized we could take a private boat from Playa it only made sense to stay in Playa. First off, the communication with Sandra via phone and email was remarkable. We did the "here and there" package so we did a shallow dive in playa which was awesome and did a deeper dive in cozumel the next day. Our instructors were E the first day and Andy the next and they were absolutely amazing. E was always very calm, but still quite personable and allowed Jason and I (both loud and a bit obnoxious at times) to be ourselves and just enjoy the day. Andy was equally awesome! I would highly recommend this dive shop! From our interactions with Sandra over the phone to our dives with E and Andy, we couldn't have asked for a better experience!
