I would like to thank Alvaro and Mauricio, from Always Diving in Cancun, for helping me get my Padi Open Water Certification! Alvaro was a very patient man with a calming manner that made performing the skills a breeze. He taught in a way that was personalized to my needs, and made me feel very confident and comfortable in the water! I could not have done this without him! I was fortunate to do a reef dive, the Underwater Museum, and a bull shark dive, and thoroughly enjoyed myself and the scenery as my confidence grew! Thank you again so much! We look forward to more diving next December!

Thank Jocelynn_B2013

This was our first open water dive after being certified in fresh water in Utah. Alvaro was extremely patient and made me feel very comfortable. If this is your first dive in the ocean you must dive with Alvaro...you will have an amazing experience. We are excited to dive with Alvaro again in the near future.

Did the bull shark dive and thoroughly enjoyed myself, along with how Alvaro shows the sharks such respect and doesn't do things like chum up the water, allowing the sharks to be observed in their natural environment and normal behaviors. We dove Nitrox 32 so that we didn't have to worry about NDL and I enjoyed 39 minutes of bottom time at 75'. Alvaro is a nitrox instructor so if you have never done nitrox he can easily teach you.

I was really impressed with how well organized Always Diving was such that my dive was simple...they take care of everything for you so all you have to do is enjoy yourself. Gear is included in their prices. Mauricio was a great divemaster. Alvaro called me at my hotel the night before the dive to give me some different dive options, too, which is always nice.

For those of you staying in the hotel zone, it costs less than $1USD (bus drivers will take $1 but you won't get change) to ride the bus to his small shop and it is very easy to find.

By way of my dive experience, I am a former Nitrox instructor so I have seen lots of dive operations where they advertise as being 'boutique' and small yet are anything but. Well Always Diving is the real deal...you will be happy to go with someone who limits the number of divers to just 6...makes it a lot more fun. For what it's worth, on my trip there were only 3 of us.

Finally, free of charge Alvaro provided me with a high quality video of my dive (just bring a USB stick with you). What super service!

Alvaro and Mauricio are the best we have ever dove with. They certified our teenage daughter and took us on several great dives, including a bull shark dive adventure. I made five dives over Thanksgiving week and enjoyed each one immensely. They are honest, reasonably priced, extremely thoughtful and conscientious. Small shop so you'll get local flavor, not like some tourist -factory boat where they take you down for twenty minutes in order to get you back for the next batch. Good equipment, good air, lots of individual attention. You will not be disappointed. BTW, others told me that the cenotes dive they went on with Alvaro were unbelievably great, so I intend to return as soon as possible to do that.
