I dove with them in early October 2012. I booked the reservation via Mke's dive shop in Playa del Carmen, and the price was $85/person +$20 for equipment.
I was the only one signed up for diving this day at the dive shop, which was amazing. Then 2 Japanese people joined, so it became a group of 3 people. We went on a taxi to the harbor and dove santa rosa and a dive site close to Paradise beach. The dive master Carlos was very understanding and careful guide. He watched me every minute to make sure I was fine. He showed me interesting lobster family, toadfish, a territorial fish, etc.
One minor problem was with my BCD. It seemed like my BCD was fixed for leakage the day before. They thought it was fixed, but it turned out that air keeps pouring into BCD and I had to constantly release the air for the first dive. I guess it was leaking so much that I only had 30 minutes of dive time. Too bad.
During the next dive, I got a bigger tank and disconnected BCD to air supply completely. I've never done such a thing before, but I could regulate with my lung and it was fine.
The boat we used: Studio Blue 1 was a little fishing boat with no top to keep you from strong sun, except where the captain is. Obviously no bathroom, no food service, like the ones I'm used to.
But people were nice, did everyting to make my work the minimum, including changing tanks, helping me get out of water, instructions before diving, and lots of smiles and talking while resting.
Be careful with the bathroom back in the office. when you turn on the light, you get a slight electic buzz.
