“Bull Shark Dives”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

I did two days of bull shark diving with Fantasea Dive and it was an awesome experience. This was something I had wanted to do for a long time and it did not disappoint. Jason runs an operation where safety is kept the first priority which is appreciated when getting around the sharks up close and personal. If anyone is considering this experience I would highly recommend Fantasea Dive!

“fabulous dive, great times!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

i started looking for dive shops that do bull shark dives in playa del carmen a week before my visit there. jason's e-mail communications were by far the most prompt and detailed which provided me with needed confidence since this was my first bull shark dive. his little pdf document was pretty helpful as well. once i got to the shop jason questioned me pretty sternly (which i didn't mind at all, actually) about my diving experience. once that was over, jason was a lot of fun to be around as he prepared the equipment and divers for the upcoming dives.

dives were fantastic! we got to see a lot of sharks - which was the main objective. i would definitely dive with jason again next time i am in playa del carmen.

“Excellent bull shark diving!!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

went on a bull shark dive last week with Jason and my husband...it was so exciting, we did it two more times!!
Jason took extra time to explain the dive plan, kept checking our air, helped with checking our gear, etc...felt safe the entire time and Jason knew this was my first time doing a shark dive so he paid extra attention to me under the water and kept asking if I was ok...
We also went to Peurto Moreles to dive a shipwreck with Jason this trip and it was super amazing!
There are so many dive ops to choose from in Playa Del Carmen, but not with the special attention to details like Fantasea Dive.
I have been diving with Jason for 3 years now and plan to go with him again next year..it's not even an option to choose another dive op.

“Another awesome dive holiday”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband and I had the opportunity to do 5 days of diving with Fantasea Dive. This was our third trip to Playa del Carmen and have dived with Jason all three times there. This past October we did a total of 10 dives with this company and wouldn't considered any other dive company when we were in this part of Mexico. We did 2 days in Playa and 3 in Cozumel. When we go to Cozumel for diving Jason himself (or one of his dive guides) actually go with us to guide us on our dives unlike other companies that just send their customers on their own to meet up with a dive guide there. It makes for very comfortable dives when you are with the same company for all your dives well there. We first went with this company because from their website is was apparent that English was their dominant language and that was very important to us. Another thing that attracts us to this company is they do small dive groups. The first trip we were very novice divers and they made us feel very comfortable and boosted our confidence! Thanks guys! We can't wait to come back again. The Fluets

“Great day diving PDC with Fantasea Dive!!!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I highly recommend Fantasea Dive. There are TONS of dive ops to chose from in PDC, and I emailed several of them when I was looking for someone to take me diving. Jason, the owner of Fantasea, was by far the most responsive to my emails, so I choose to book with him. It was a great choice. Jason is extremely knowledgeable and I felt extremely safe during all of my dives. He also is very service oriented and made sure that I was comfortable and that I had a great time. I've been diving in several places and Fantasea is one of the best dive ops that I've used. I'll definitely be back!
