I recommend Scuba Tulum to anyone looking for a reliable and professional scuba service. I booked a 2 day private scuba certification course from Canada and had a great experience. I didn't want to spend half my trip getting the certification so they recommended that I take the classes online before I even arrived in Tulum. Then after two days with Martino in the water I was able to get my SSI Open Water Diver certification.

I even booked another day of scuba through Scuba Tulum because I had to see Dos Oyos before I left!

Price was fair market. I found some smaller dive outfits it town around the cenotes that offered to do the certification for less $ but sometimes you get what you pay for.

Great stuff! And definitely see the Cenotes while in Tulum!

Me and my wife just arrived from a 9 day vacation in Tulum. We went with a couple of friends, all of us quite experienced divers, although beginners in cavern ambiences. Beforehand, after a thorough search, we decided to book a 8 days diving program with Scuba Tulum dive center. We couldn't be more lucky! Marina and Paolo's dive center is one of the best we found anywhere in the World. Big enough to have everything we needed, small enough to make us feel important. They treated us like royalty! Luiz Zenteno, our guide, is a very experienced cave diver and also the nicest person you could ever meet. We had a great time with him! We were never pushed into anything we didn't want, instead Luiz suggestions were perfect, from easy dives to more demanding ones through the week. We will surely return and dive with this incredible team!

I was looking for a dive shop in Tulum that’s affiliated with SSI, so that I could continue with my SSI training and certification process. I’m so glad I found Scuba Tulum! A friendly, family-owned dive shop that made me feel welcome from the minute I walked in, they introduced me to the amazing world of cavern diving in the Mayan Riviera.
I spent almost three weeks in February with them. I took four specialty classes and did a bunch of diving in cenotes. My instructor, Luiz, was wonderful. I spent a lot of time with him working on my buoyancy control, deep diving and navigation skills. He is thorough and attentive to detail, and helped me to become a much better diver. As a certified cave diver, I felt safe and comfortable with him while exploring the underground beauty of the cenotes. Plus, he was a great tour guide and a fun person!
I did several dives with Rubi, who was also exceedingly competent, professional and fun. The owners, Marina and Paolo, are great, and I highly recommend diving with Scuba Tulum. I can’t wait to go back again!

Family dive shop, very personable staff. Marina and Paolo (owners) were very accommodating of our family of five and suggested an itinerary that got everyone feeling comfortable for the week.
We decided to do all of our dives with Scuba Tulum.

Our guides for the 7 dives (Urska, Rubiel and Brenda…and Marina) were excellent - very clear in dive briefings, very attentive to the less experienced / nervous divers, maintained a good rhythm during the dives and got all the equipment prepped for the group.

Our dives over the four days were:
1 Cenote Casa and then the nearby reef
2 Cenote El Pit
3 Cenote Dos Ojos - Barbie Line and Bat Cave
4 Cenote Jardin del Eden and Cenote Taj Mahal

Cenote Taj Mahal is a bit off the beaten track but it was the group’s favourite.

We are a Canadian couple who began communicating with Paolo at Scuba Tulum 3 months prior to our trip to Mexico. Paolo was very quick to respond and provided clear information that guided our decisions about diving in Tulum. We were in Tulum just last week. My husband and I are experienced ocean reef divers but had not tried cenotes diving. We ended up booking 5 days of diving with Scuba Tulum and four of those days were cenotes diving. Thanks to Guadalupe in the shop for helping us select our gear. The dive equipment we rented was in good shape and the dive truck we used for exploring was also very nice. We can't say enough about how so much of our enjoyment and success was because of our excellent dive master Rubi. Rubi incrementally increased the challenge and skill level of the dives so that we could be successful in the cenote caves. This was our first experience cave diving and Rubi gave us the knowledge and confidence to cave dive, feeling safe and in control. As a dive master, he had a sense of fun and adventure but took safety very seriously. His love and passion for diving in the cenotes was contagious. We dove Casa Cenote, Car Wash, Dos Ojos, Angelita, Dream Gate, The Pit and Nicte-Ha, in that order. Thanks to everyone at Scuba Tulum for such an amazing dive experience! We would recommend Scuba Tulum as a place to dive through in Tulum. Ask for Rubi as a dive master. He was an absolute pleasure to dive with!

These guys are the best in town!!! We did 5 cenotes dives with Scuba Tulum (The Pit, Dos Ojos, Angelita, Carwash and Casa), each one better than the other! Angelita was our favorite though. Our guide, Martino, was one the best guides we have ever dived with. Really nice, helpful, knowledgable, and an excellent diver! In terms of pricing Scuba Tulum are one of the less pricy in Tulum, which makes choosing them even easier. Cenote diving can’t be missed if you are in Tulum, and Scuba Tulum are the ones to go with!

What an incredible experience!
We did a 2-tank dive with Martinez, he was informative, funny, confident and very professional on checking on us during the dive. The Cenote Dos Ojos was soo epic.
The scuba Tulum team were prepared with suits, sizes, and the whole check in and finding the shop was super easy. I could not recommend a better shop to dive with! Very locale, very international too, very very experienced and easy going.

We aren't super advanced, but we felt like pro's by the end of our dive.

Luiz is an excellent dive guide and great guy. I am so grateful for this experience I was amazed they entertained some special requests and they went above and beyond. I only wish I had the time to take the cavern class with them. I will certainly set aside a few days for that on the next trip and know I'll have a blast and be in good hands.

I did my open water certification with this school and was more than happy about my choice. The whole diving school is wonderful and especially Rubi is a great diving teacher. He is extremely experienced and patient which makes you feel very safe. But he also makes the diving lessons a lot of fun.
Thank you Scuba Tulum for this great experience, can’t wait for my next dives!

Highly recommend, a fanatic experience !
The team is run by Marina, who is very kind and helpful. Her communication prior to booking the dive was excellent and made the whole process very easy. Rubi was our instructor, he’s very funny but also a brilliant dive guide. We did two dive days with them - the first a cenote (Casa) dive with my friend who is uncertified and the second a cavern dive (Dos Ojos) on my own. Rubi tailored both dives to our level of experience and made them both safe and enjoyable. Both dives were amazing experience in places unique to Mexico !
If I come back to Tulum I will definitely dive with these guys again!
