About Planet Scuba Mexico
Planet Scuba Mexico is a professional owner-run scuba center and offers three main activities: Recreational Scuba diving & courses Technical diving & courses Professional Cavern & Cave Development Programs and PADI Instructor Development Courses Compared to many of our competitors, we concentrate on a few selected activities. This allows us to fully dedicate ourselves to the products and services we offer without having to cut corners in customer safety and service. All programs, be it recreational, technical or instructor courses are conducted in house by us personally. You will not be sent off into the hands of partner organizations like many others do. No matter if you are a single diver or travelling in a group, we ensure you have a great time with us! We use brand new and frequently serviced state-of-the-art Cressi scuba equipment for our recreational divers and high-end Apeks and Razor tech gear for all technical and cave divers. We also hold the official dealership for these brands. All our staff are proven professionals with a long track record in customer safety and service and love what they do. The minimum instructor rating required to work for Planet Scuba Mexico is the PADI Master Instructor rating and being either tech or cave qualified to ensure only the best will take you diving. Our aim is to offer you a great experience at Planet Scuba Mexico through customized dives and courses. From start to finish we strive to give you and exciting, safe and relaxed time. The way we do things sets us apart from many others in the area. Our main objective is to show you the beauty of the Cenotes (crystal clear fresh water caverns & caves). We run tours every day and are the only dive shop in town that takes you to all the Cenotes between our center and Tulum. All tours have a maximum of 4 divers to 1 guide and we make sure that all divers within a group have similar dive experience. All Cenotes tours include 2 dives on two different dive sites, each dive running at about 55min. Between the dives you have time to have a light snack and exchange your experience with other divers. Tours usually start at 8:30am and return between 3:00-4:00pm. Guided full cave dives as well as tech and cave courses are all held in-house and start at set dates. Please contact us for more information. Wreck diving is only worth doing when you are diving a proper wreck. We dive the C-56 (a former WWII US mines sweeper!) in the Puerto Morelos National Park and are the only ones in town to do so. A great dive with so much to discover!

My husband and I have booked with Planet Scuba before and had a wonderful time so it was no surprise we booked with them on a return trip to Puerto Aventuras. Markus is very helpful, communicative, friendly, and knowledgable. He makes you feel at home in planning your dives. We opted for two days of diving, all centoes. Marko, our dive master, was awesome! So calm, steady, and helpful. We love the stops at the local fruit stand for our post dive snacks. We dove Eden and Taj Mahal on day one and Dos Ojos (Barbie and Batcave) the second day and had a fantastic time. We absolutely love Planet Scuba and highly recommend for any divers making their getaway in the Cancun/Playa/Tulum area.

Perfect diving with Marco today at Dos Ojos. We did the Barbie line and Bat cave. Both the guide and the owner Markus Teupe are very relaxed and helpful

From Communication, transport organisation & the whole Dive planning, execution & safety aspects besides Full Service & Customer oriented and friendly as well: Juliane & Markus do an excellent job, nothing at all to complain about. Everything just works perfect and they care about you as customer. I will go again a3rd time👍😎

A must for all divers out there! This is one of the best dive trips I have had in over 22 years of diving Markus Juliana Marco and Mark are professional and very skilled at what they do whilst still maintaining the relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Family run out of there home the range of diving these guys do is fantastic courses in almost everything while i was there there were side mount courses intro to cave diving and open water. The diving for me in the cenotes was superb ten dives and not visiting the same site twice, All the cenotes are different some with 30m light beams in crystal clear water some with stalagmites stalagtites and huge pillars,some with fossils millions of years old. And if thats not enough there`s the Caribbean ocean with wrecks reefs fish life and more, Diving on the C56 Minesweeper was the top of the holiday a nice wreck sunk to make a reef they have left in the two engines and the bow gun in place which gives more interest full swim through on two decks nice in itself but on the second dive there was a massive turtle at the stern which swam so close then swam through the decks arriving back at the stern to see 14 Eagle rays swimming in formation in the current holding a perfect line over our heads we stopped and watched for as long as possible before heading for the line and even on the line as we rose to 10m a trio of stingrays large mother with two babies on under each wing. To see so much on one dive is incredible. Thanks to you all at planet scuba looking forward to our next deco beer Markus see you soon and thanks again Paul

Die Tauchgänge in den Cenoten waren schlicht super. Obwohl ich in einer hektischen Zeit (der ganze Tauchshop ist gerade umgezogen) da war, haben sich Juliana und Markus toll um alles gekümmert und die Tauchgänge waren top organisiert. Tobi war ein spitzen Tauch-Guide. Die briefings vor den Tauchgängen waren sehr gut und für das perfekte Timing bei The Pit bin ich ihm auch endlos dankbar, die Cenote war bei Sonneneinfall ein wahres Erlebnis. The cenote dives were simply wonderful. Although I visited during a hectic time (the dive shop had to move) Juliana and Markus were perfect hosts and everything was organised very well. My guide, Tobi, was excellent. The briefings he held before every dive were informative. But most of all I'm eternally thankful for him waiting for the sun to move in the right spot before doing the The Pit dive. Being down there with the sunlight penetrating the dark cenote was more than spectacular.
