Having decide to finally to take the PADI OWD course I had done a fair amount of research into companies that would deliver the course in Akumal. I had already been given the names of 'ex-pat' companies that were recommended to deliver training. Having contacted these I also contacted Tim and Kathrin. After numerous emails between several companies I chose... More

From the moment, I viewed Blue Experience’s website and read the comments on Tripadvisor, I had confidence immediately that I was selecting the correct company for my son’s first ever dive experience and PADI Open Water Diving. The Customer Service that both Tim and Kathrin provide is second to none and although I have been sceptical in the past about... More

I can't say enough positives about this company. I earned my open water certification from Tim last summer and returned for a few dives this week. Tim and Kathrin's dive operation is just first class. Hotel pick up and drop off, max water time, and a true guided tour. Tim doesn't miss anything. Thanks again. Clint

We had fantastic dives with Blue Experience Diving in Akumal at the end of June. Tim and Katerine are the best and provided valet service. We booked via emails which were responded to promptly and all questions answered completely. We stayed at the Grand Palladium. Tim picked us up at our lobby on time and drove us back afterwards. We... More

Let me start by saying that Akumal and the Carribean Sea with its clear waters and rich wildlife are one of the best places to get your Open Water Diver. My girlfriend and I enjoyed every second of it. For all of the diving skills Tim & Kathrin escorted us all the way at our own speed leaving also room... More

Tim put together a package of 5 days diving which included a cenotè dive and diving on a wreck the rest were on Akumal beach at... More

We have just returned from Mexico where we went diving with Tim & Kathrin who made the diving fun and care free. Our group had a wide range of experience from very exprience to complete beginner and they coped with this very well. Tim was particularly patient with our novice and succeeded in getting her qualified even after she had... More

First of all this is one of the smaller dive schools i have been with, and i would dive here over and over again. Tim and Katherine are great, friendly, fun and know the area like the back of their hands. We did Cozumel and the Cenote dives (thanks George) with them and it was just myself and my fiance... More

Tim and Kathrin are wonderful dive masters. They take their time, do not rush the client and keep safety as a first priority when diving. They pointed out so many things on our dive trip that we wouldn't have noticed ourselves. They allowed us to stop and look at lobster, crab, even a sea horse. We dove with many turtles... More
