“best experience diving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

we were in Playa del Carmen in March 20th 2013 and my husband luckily found Bull Sharks so we decided to ask for more information, and was there were our great journey started, Karla (linda y hermosa) gave us the information what we needed to be Padi so we started on next day, my husband was trained with the instructor Sandy very knowledge and professional young lady ( we loved her). My husband is happy to have the Padi certified and was teach the right way. I personally did explore scuba diving and I enjoyed the experience, for being first time for me was perfect. I will strongly recommend Bull Sharks, they make feel safe while diving, listen to your concerns, and the best of all they make you feel you are their family. I will definitely go back to them, if I don’t dive I will go just for visit.

“Great night dive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2011

A friend and me were looking for a night dive. All other dive bases, which we contacted, were very reluctant to take us because we were only two persons and maybe because it was on a saturday night. Rodolfo from scuba s.cool didn't hesitate at all to take us and we booked a night dive at Moc Che, a shallow reef with a nice arch.
As it was my first night dive Rodolfo took his time prior to the dive and explained everything in a fairly good briefing at the base. Rodolfo and another guide took us to the reef, where they showed us around but also gave us the possibility to dive around on our own to check out the maritime nightlife. I felt absolutely safe and relaxed with the two guides at any time. The dive was planned to be around 45 min, but they offered us to stay down as long as we had sufficiently enough air, which ended up in a great 60 min dive.

I can strongly recommend scuba s.cool for their relaxed, friendly and knowledgeable team!

“scuba s. cool is way cool man”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2011

I have been diving almost every day for a month with Ruldolfo and the guyz at the scuba s. cool diving center. They specialize in small groups with attention to detail and customer service unmatched anywhere. They work with beginners as well as more experienced divers. They tailor the dive for your needs, even when different levels of expertise are on the boat. They just add more guides. The dive sites are close too. I like to take photos, so they go slow for me. Their english is great too.
You can find the pictures I have taken while with them on You Tube = quickpix123.
Don't forget to ask to dive in the Cenotes, they go to some that others don't, so the water is more clear from lack of disruption from other divers kicking up the bottom sand. They do ship wreck and deep diving too. If you are considering tech diving they offer classes in Nitrox, as well as the full line of PADI courses.
If it sounds like I am stoked, I am. Come dive with this dive center!
