Akumal Dive Adventures offers open water dives, PADI certifications, night diving, and cenote diving.

We run three trips per day 7 days a week: 9am, 11am and 2pm, visiting over 30 diverse dive locations.

We provide both equipment rental and rinsing facilities as well as areas for storing equipment.

Reservations for certification courses, accommodation packages, and diving may be made in advance through our US office.

Akumal Dive Adventures prides itself in a non-invasive approach to scuba diving. We encourage visitors to enjoy this underwater paradise without impacting or touching the fragile formations.

Accompanying each dive trip is our professional boat crew, including a licensed captain and PADI dive master or instructor.

The water temperatures average 84°F in the summer months and 78°F in the winter months.

Dive safety precautions are of utmost importance to us.

We chose to dive with this company because it was closer to our condo, and I'm glad we did. We did 2 dives and saw TONS of turtles and beautiful coral. Highly recommended.

We are headed home today, after a wonderful dive adventure. It was my first real dive trip...just got certified last year. I have bad allergies, which makes descending really hard. I gave up on my first dive, but tried again another day. Lupe stuck right with me, and kept me calm, reminded me to keep clearing, and held onto me... More

Lupe & Carlos at Akumal Dive Adventures did a great job preparing our family for our dive. This was our kids first dive and Carlos was very attentive and instructional to ensure our dive was safe & fun! We saw 5 turtles, great coral reef formations and tons of fish.

It is a small outfit but has amazing service and high safety. My husband and I are both certified and wanted our kids to see how much more diving... More

We completed our PADI open water dive with Nestor "Nemo", Lupe and Moises. They were extremely professionals. They made our experience with diving unbelievable ! We felt very safe with them. It is a great location and you get personal diving experience like no other place. The first 2 days it was only my husband, me and the boat captain... More
