As a long time professional scuba diver and instructor I would, without hesitation, recommend Gypsea Divers for anyone wanting to dive in Mahahual. The rental gear was very well maintained and without problems. The entire staff was super friendly and ready to help. Abel was an attentive divemaster focused on safety and that everyone enjoys their dive - he felt... More

Me and my wife were here for Diving -Open water certification, Catherine & Abel were just but amazing! As small business that is, you feel your training real personal and this is important with something related to safety. Catherine was real kind explaining us every detail, we immediately felt comfortable and safe, in our sessions we had a lot of... More

I can't speak more highly of these guys. We went to Mahuhual on a 2 day stop desperate to get some diving in. Katherine was super accommodating and gave us the times available and set us up with our gear upon booking. It had been a while since myself and my travel buddy had been diving and so mentioned this... More

Very cool little dive shop surrounded with great people Very laid back atmosphere while still maintaining a strong sense of safety. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. The area of Mahahual has some good topography dives. You may not see a ton of marine life (this is Mexico after all), but unless you just came from the Galapagos, you should... More

Gypsea Divers provided an AMAZING experience for my wife and I. We are both fairly-newly certified divers who were arriving from a cruise ship and Catherine and Abel happily accommodated our needs. The rental gear they provided (at a super-low fee imo) was in perfect working order as was their boat. We were taken to several world-class diving spots where... More

We've dove with Gypsea before,and it's always fantastic. This time there were four of us, two returning customers, and two new. With Catherine and Abel at Gypsea Divers, you're never a customer, but instantly a friend. They are people who have the dive shop as an expression of their love for the sport, and the Village of Mahahual. That comes... More

I am an advanced diver (over 100 dives). I went with different friends at different times, sometimes first timers and also with experienced divers, and all the dives were... More

My wife and I took my first time experience here. I am a big guy so I called in advance to see if they could accommodate me and they absolutely could and did! My wife had a little difficulty after taking in some water but they were very patient with her and we certainly appreciated it.

Hello stefanie, Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your "bad" story, unfortunatly, looks like you are missing a part in the mexican culture where people call themselfs sweet names And touch each other... Im sorry that you felt uncomfortable with Abel... Maybe you could have told him And not go for lunch with him after diving..???... More

I don't think I can say anything that hasn't already been said. Kathryn, Abel, Lisa..and of course "Captain" (I don't know his name so I just always called him this!) who got us there, out of the water and back safely every day.. The crew were all like family to me after a week of diving. Kathryn and Lisa are... More
