Reviewed May 7, 2013

We dove a number of Cozumel reefs with Ricardo and he was great everyday. The dive groups were small, and I was pleased with how efficient everything was. Ricardo uses fast boats that got us to the dive site quickly and the supplied dive equipment was excellent. The pre-dive briefings were really good - Ricardo is very knowledgeable. The dive experience absolutely fantastic! Spectacular. Afterwards we were well served with fresh fruit & water.

We were staying at a villa south of the town of San Miguel, and we got picked up right at our beach. It was so nice just relax at the breakfast table, grab our gear when we saw the boat approach, and be off to the dive site in no time. After this experience, I'll never drive to town and lug gear to some pier again.

Ricardo was friendly and attentive to everyone in the group. I really got the feeling that we were his guests and not just that day's dive client.

Dove the Dos Ojos Cenote with Ricardo. Very professional in all aspects, Karen made things happen for our group of five, 3 snorkelling, 2 divers on short notice. Ricardo met us as scheduled and was very professional throughout the whole experience. As a newly certified diver
Ricardo was great, offering advice, which I gladly accepted,, gauging our abilities and making the dive fit those,, checking back on us and showing us some cool things. Lunch was good as well as. I would gladly use their services again in the furture.

“Above and beyond”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Having just spent almost 3 weeks with Ricardo, whereby he arranged for us to dive The Centoes, Cancun underwater museum, and then the fantastic Cozumel all 6 of us have had a fantastic time. Our experience as divers is varied, from instructors to openwater and Ricardo handled each one with the appropriate support which was very well received amongst our group. In meeting our needs he did not fail, we experienced dives that will live in our memory's for a very long time.

What we did not realise was that the company is internet based and does not have a Dive shop. Karen is the main contact through the internet and not as a diver. One thing to remember is how you pay for your diving. As we are from Europe we tend to pay with cards rather than cash and found it very inconvenient that cards are not accepted, as we could not get enough cash out of the ATM's. We did manage to solve this and it would not stop me from Diving again with them, but be prepared to have cash with you.

“The best part of our vacation!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

My husband and I completed our PADI Open Water Dive certification last week (Dec 28/12) in Cozumel with Ricardo of Dive Choice. I was initially impressed with their quick response to my email inquiries after reading great reviews on Trip Advisor as well as their flexibility working with our schedule. Ricardo was incredibly calm and patient which really helped me be successful in the course. I was very stressed about the exercises requiring you to take off your mask under water. Ricardo helped me work through these fears by giving me some tips, remaining calm and allowing me the time I needed to feel comfortable. The choice of dive sights was also fantastic, from our first time in the water when Ricardo showed us Seahorses through our last dive where he calmed me down after an encounter with a Morae Eel, my husband and I would HIGHLY recommend Richardo & Karen of Dive Choice and will be back to see them again next time!!
