We had a great 2 tank morning dive along the reef. Our 2 teenage kids were both on their 1st dive after completing PADI certification with Dive Master Gio and Scuba Libre. It was an awesome dive and Dive Master Elanor was excellent with our kids. We will definitely be diving with Scuba Libre in the future.

I have a time share at the Royal Haciendas and walked over to Sandos to dive with Scuba Libre. I forget the gentlemen's name at the counter. (Ari?) He has been there for years and was very polite and professional. I had forgotten my dive computer at the shop and he was kind enough to have someone run it over to me on a jet ski. VERY nice! The men on the boat and the dive masters were very good at their jobs and cheerful. Everyone was on time which is important to me on vacation. I would definitely recommend them and will be back next year!!

You should not advertise bull shark dives and the bull shark season is over. The diagram gave us alternatives but it was not what we had hoped for

I’m a certified diver but wanted to take my girlfriend out on discovery to get her into it. We had Jo as the instructor and she was amazing. Very patient and helpful, and now has my gf convinced to becoming a diver! Also saw tons of fish, turtles, etc. highly recommend.

We took a catamaran from Villa del Palmar to Isla Mujeres, with a snorkeling stop on the way. Our guide, Oliver, and crew of Capitán Luis and Diego and Luis were fantastic! We’ve been on several of these types of excursions and this crew was top notch! Attentive (but not overly so), liberal with beverages and entertainingly humorous! Highly recommend!
