“Great dive shop, highly recommended”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We chose Pepe for our second trip to Cozumel based on solid TA reviews. We were extremely happy we did! My wife and I were fortunate to be the only divers with them and essentially had a private two-tank dive. Abdias is a very attentive dive guide and outlined each of our dives. The first was a brisk drift dive where we saw a couple of turtles, a moray eel out and about, and a nurse shark. The second dive was a little more relaxing and at a medium depth (which he asked us for what we wanted). We were met by the boat at the end of each dive and didn't have to swim at all. The only minor complaint is their tanks apparently needed to have the o-rings replaced because they leaked for all three of us on the second dive. Otherwise, Pepe is a great value. We will definitely dive with Pepe the next time we return to Cozumel.

replaced with worn out ones by others,as they know we maintain our own.Sorry for the
trouble and hope to see you again.

“The only shop to dive with in Cozumel!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This February will be my 3rd year diving with Pepe's Dive Shop. Everyone is top notch, and takes time to make sure you feel comfortable, and confidant with any concerns. The dive masters, Abdias and Fernando are very knowledgeable and great teachers. Abdias has a keen eye and will show you all of the tiny creatures hiding under the reef and Fernando is very lighthearted and will keep you laughing through your regulator during the dive. I'm still a novice diver (less than 100 dives), and anytime I had questions or worries the dive masters always had a new way to explain things and made me feel at ease.

A plus to Pepe's is they use small dive boats (that can fit up to 10 divers) so you can go farther, faster to some of the really cool dive spots. Make sure to bring a windbreaker, or waterproof jacket to keep you dry and warm in-between dives because the boat will be cruising!

We dive daily with Pepe's during our stay in Cozumel. We always feel safe, and confidant diving with them. You'll be in good hands, and make new friends along the way.

“Excellent Dive Shop”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Pepe Scuba Dive Shop is one of the best dive shops I've ever used. I've been diving for over 40 years all over the world. Pepe's exceeded my expectations. Good dive masters and boat skipper. The boat was clean, fast and had good shade form the sun. We dove for five days and every day we asked to go to the best dive sites at the other end of the island. Only once did they ask for a small fuel surcharge. People were friendly and helpful. I also appreciated the tactful ways they suggested how I could be a better and safer diver. These people are knowledgeable, competent and emphasize safety. You can't beat that.
