I had a chance to experience diving for the first time (10D class) ever with Kathryn from GypseaDivers in January 2016. She was so patient, full of enthusiasm and good energy was bursting around her! Very professional and knows all "underwater stones" you meet with your first time dive. Time flew so fast and I cannot wait to come back... More

We had a lovely day with Gypsea Divers when we decided on the Discover Scuba package. As we were only in Malecon for a day as our cruise ship, Norwegian Dawn, was only in port for about 8 hours. What a fabulous way to have a first time experience with scuba diving. We were put into a small group of... More

We dove with Gypsea Divers several years ago, and were quite pleased to return. If you're looking for a big dive shop with the "latest and greatest", look elsewhere. However, if you want a personalized experience, Catherine and Abel will make sure you get it. The prices are quite affordable, and the dive sites are minutes away from the shop.... More

This is the people with whom you want to dive if you are in Mahahual. Katrine and Abel are great people and extremely professional dive masters and teachers. There is no way you can find a better and safer group to dive with (the captain of the Mar y Paz is a great captain :-), they are extremely flexible with... More

Would have gone diving more if the harbormaster hadn't shut down the port for days on end, but the two days we did get out were great! Abel and Catherine run a great little shop.

My husband & I visited Mahahual on a whim for what was supposed to be 4 days but ended up being 6 weeks. The main reason for our change in plans was diving with these guys. They put us through both our Open Water & Advanced Open Water PADI courses & now we are totally hooked. They have the perfect... More

Cat and Abel are both very nice and super professional. We dove two days with them, both times we were the only divers which was great as we practically had a private tour. The reef is healthy and colorful, and Abel was great pointing out all the small stuff too. Cat was quick in responding to our emails (something other... More

I used to have my dive card a long time ago, but I wanted to see if there was a way I could share the experience with my boys (14-18). We went to Gypsea on a recommendation from a local, and Catherine immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable. She explained that her husband Abel would be able to take... More

The three of us got our open water certifications with Catherine about a year ago. We had really different levels of experience. I had already done a certification as a child, my husband is daring and always good at trying new things and our friend admits himself that he avoids trying new things and decided to do this as a...

At the last minute, we booked a snorkeling trip with Gypsea. Our guide was fantastic- great sense of humor and some pretty crazy stories. We (group of only three) close to do a shallow snorkel trip- the reef was pristine and seriously alive with fish. Our guide did a good job of pointing out the various types of coral and... More
