“Scuba Scooter Dive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

I had never done scooter before and Matt brought me up to speed quickly. Using a scooter is a blast and easy to pick up. Of the 45 minutes underwater we spent about half of the time on the reef and half in transit along a sandy bottom. Visibility was about 50 ft so not outstanding. Heard whales, saw a big puffer fish and a moray eel. Compared to previous experience at Cozumel, this dive was good but not great due to water clarity and less abundant fish. Rating is not a reflection of Matt as a guide who was outstanding.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

It was a really pleasure to get back into my diving with Matt. He reviewed all the safety, knowledge and equipment clearly and quickly with me. Then it was to the reef. Calm relaxing and enjoyable. I was lucky to be the only customer that day but knew that at most there would be only four. I had so much fun I went the next day too

“Scooter dive was great.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Steve and Di were very easy to work with. We will definitely do this again next year. The scooters are quite cool in that you straddle them and your hands are free. You feel like Superman gliding through the water. The water can be a little murky close to shore, but the brightly colored gear helps you stay with the group. There were not as many fish as I would have hoped, but I think that is just like fishing, sometimes they are there and sometimes they are not. Easy to recommend this dive company.

“Scooter dive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

The couple running the dive operation were great. We had a shore dive and used the scooters which were a lot of fun. However was really disappointed not to see many fish, and the coral was not colourful as I expected. We didnt see a turtle unfortunately. Great dive though and the scooters were very easy to master.

“Very fun, easy going, and friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

While my girlfriend and I we're on our vacation together in Maui I really wanted her to try scuba diving. Scuba Luv was decently cheap, met us right outside our hotel, and made it a very enjoyable experience for us both! We saw lots of fish a turtles and it was a very easy shore dive. It couldn't have gone better! They even provided us with pictures! Definitely recommending them.
