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!

We have dived the Cenotes with Markus Teupe from Planet Scuba Mexico. The dives were fantastic and Markus is an excellent dive instructor. Unfortunately on the last day - I had a chest pain during the first dive, had to abort the dive after first few minutes, and being an experienced Dive Master, I decided to quit diving on that day and schedule a doctor checkup. As all our dives were paid in advance, I asked Markus if he could reimburse at least part of the cost for the second dive that day - which was paid and didn't happen. Markus explained to me that he had already incurred some costs with equipment rental and park fees, but he proposed a EUR 50 refund. I accepted his offer and thanked him. Unfortunately the refund never came, despite my friendly reminding him several times after returning home. It is not about the money - but about keeping your word. What a shame to ruin such a wonderful experience with such bad approach to the client :(

Wow. I just returned from an amazing diving trip with the team at planet scuba. Markus, the owner, did an amazing job planning each dive and ensuring you enjoyed each dive. Markus took the time to explain each dive and the equipment I used was in great condition. Very professional and he knew his way around the cenotes. He picked me up at my resort and was on time every morning. Great personality and did an overall great job. I also went diving one day with Marco (Markus’ other colleague) to Cozumel. Also a great experience. Overall, I would highly recommend Markus and the team at Planet Scuba!! Very professional, safe, and easy to work with. Bonus Points: Markus helped set-up a day of snorkeling for my family and another family of four that I was traveling with. He coordinated a van and a guide so they could snorkel while I was diving in the cenote. That worked our very well and my family enjoyed it. Markus provided sandwiches that were not only good, but hit the spot after snorkeling. Again, well planned out and an overall awesome experience. Nice job Planet Scuba!!!

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

Everything just works perfect and they care about you as customer. I will go again a3rd time👍😎
