Had a great time at the Akumal Dive Shop. I took my father in his 70's for a first dive experience and my son 15 for his first dive experience. Our instructor, Ivo was able to work with both extremes in age and got us trained and in the water. More importantly, he got us out of the water safely.... More

This dive shop is right on the beach in Akumal and a 1 minute walk from Secrets Akumal Resort. Located on the beautiful Akumal bay where you can snorkel right from the beach to see turtles and stingrays. If you want to go to one of the many dive spots nearby then visit this dive shop. Reasonable rates too!! 1... More

I scheduled my advanced open water with Akumal Dive while staying at Eldorado's Seaside Suites. The shop is about 15 minutes from the hotel. Ivo was my dive master instructor. Ivo was a very professional young man with about 1000 dives. I had private one on one instruction. No shared time with other students like you find at most local... More

We went to Akumal Beach intending to snorkel with the turtles. We had read prior to arriving that it was free. Of course, once we got there, we had guides coming up to us on the beach (and a stranger that told us he was not affiliated with any shop) that it was illegal to swim without a guide -... More

I wish I had done all my dives with this dive centre.... A great friendly and professional team. I was a bit nervous because I had not done many drift dives however I instantly felt at ease by the instructor. I had an amazing dive and I loved seeing all the turtles. Hope to dive with your team again soon.

The introductory dive experience was so amazing I had to do it everyday until I left Mexico! We had Aitor as our instructor. He was so professional and enthusiastic about everything...an incredible teacher who obviously has a passion for what he does, and his passion was infectious! I had my 2 children with me and was so impressed with the... More

I researched this shop on day trips to Akumal over the past five years and my diving with them over the past week did not disappoint. I upgraded my skills with a professional instructor and got to see some terrific sea life on both day and night dives. I have been diving with a lot of operations in the Caribbean... More
