“Great experience”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I took a two day course to get my Scuba Diver certification. The equipement, boat, etc... are great. The location is super convenient, they are located right on the beach and you can just walk out over to boat to head out to the reef.

The best past is the amazing staff. They are very friendly and knowledgable. It felt like they were old friends.

“Rally cool laid back diving”
Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

I recently dived a wreck dive and a couple of denotes with reef marina and the crew and equipment were excellent. The denotes have to be dived if you go to Mexico, one of the best dives I have ever done. Stephanie, Bruno and all the guys there were very helpful, and had really good local knowledge of all the good dive sites. If you dive the local wreck, don't sit on the toilet in the boat, apparently a moray eel lives in it and likes biting bums!

“Absolutely the best dive operation in the area”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I spent 7 days diving with the Reef Marina crew in the Playa De Carmen area. 3 Days in the cenotes and 4 days in the ocean. The crew is fantastic - doing everything possible to ensure you have a great time diving. I have dove the cenotes several time in the past and was very surprised they managed to find cenotes outside of the more popular sites. Here is a heartfelt thank you to Stefan, Bruno and the entire staff of The Reef Marina. You have a fantastic group !

“New England Underwater Scuba Diving with The Reef Marina”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Just got back from a week of diving with The Reef Marina, along with 13 other divers. What I heard from the group was everyone had a fantastic trip. Most of us dove 6 days, with 7 ocean dives (including one night dive), and 6 Cenote dives (my first). The Reef Marina team contributed to every dive being a joy. Stephan, Bruno, and the rest of the team were as customer friendly as could be, and exceeded my expections. They were so flexible. When we could not go in the ocean due to waves, they gave us options, and to my delight we did two more Cenotes. I would definitely recommend using The Reef Marina.
