Owner description: Come and share our passion... these words perfectly reflect the atmosphere at Phocea : First of all, for us diving means pleasure (the pleasure to discover its underwater treasures), professionalism (we dive with the highest safety standards) and a great atmosphere (being serious doesn´t mean it can´t be fun). Come to discover Mexico, a country with a rich culture, ancient traditions, magic places and friendly people. The Yucatan peninsula enjoys a tropical climate, that allows you to dive all year long, in warm waters, with excellent visibility. The water temperature ranges from 79°F and 84°f in the sea, depending on the season and 75°f all year long in the cenotes.Martine, Didier and their French-Mexican team, welcome you to offer you the best of Phocea.

That was our first dives. We loved it and always felt very safe, as the Phocea team was very professional... and friendly too!
Friends of ours who are more experienced divers also spent the week diving with Phocea and they loved it.
Also it seems the equipment is fairly new compared to other diving outfits in Playa.

We had wonderful dives, at PDC and on Cozumel reef, very friendly, caring and professional staff, equipment in excellent shape, almost new.

They have a direct diving trip to cozumel, without the hassel of taking the ferry, which is great.

The two Cenotes dives (dos oros) were incredible!

We'll definitly come back!

We had a fantastic experience with Phocea. We did a 3 day diving combination including local dives in Playa, Cozomel and cave diving in grand cenote and angelita. Everything was absolutely flawless, the guides were very professional and friendly, the Equipment was new and well maintained and all the logistics were taken care of.

Highly recommended for those who seek diving for fare prices.

This was my first time scuba diving, my boyfriend's second. The instructor who taught us in the pool was awesome, full of life and very passionate about scuba. He also made me feel more comfortable with the gear and and answered all 2000 of my questions without judgement or annoyance. The boat ride was great and the dive was incredible- It was absolutely worth every penny and we will be back as soon as we possible can! Thanks for making my first experience scuba diving everything I could have dreamed and more!
