Luis was an excellent divemaster whoo had an intimate knowledge of the reef, safe diving practices, and hospitality. We found Luis had much more experience than the leaders at the other, larger, and more commercial dive shop in town. His prices were reasonable as well....More

I have been diving with Luis for several years and can’t say enough positive things! He has an amazing knowledge of the reef system near Xcalak, and guides divers to all of the great sites nearby. Luis does great pre-dive briefings, helps divers with their...More
