We tried first time diving (Discover Diving) with Francisco. Patient, clear, fun instructor. My boyfriend had ear surgery 15 years ago and never went under water since then. Diving in the pool was OK for him, but thank God he decided not to risk his health for going 8m deep into the ocean. The Cancun Scuba Center did not pressure... More

We saw Cancun Scuba Center through the PADI app and went along to see them at that stall on Playa des Tortugas. They seemed quite professional so we agreed to go to Dos Ojos Cenote to do a cave dive. I was surprised that they didn't ask to see our qualifications nor did we have to fill out any medical... More

This is my first ever diving and Cancun Scuba made it very comfortable. The order processing was very smooth online with PayPal deposit. I was contacted two days before the dive that the weather condition will be not good. I tried all my efforts to change other tours' time and Cancun Scuba patiently waited till the late afternoon before the... More

Juan Carlos and Patricia and the crew are terrific. Excellent service, Juan Carlos is fantastic dive leader..explained everything, ensured everything was perfect. They care deeply, double check everything, explain things well, and all around terrific. Best dive crew I've experienced since I started diving. Highly recommended.

We recently did a 2 tank ocean dive and a fresh water 2 tank cenote dive with Cancun Scuba. We were a group of 6 divers ranging from newly certified to advanced and Juan Carlos took great care of all of us. Juan Carlos takes safety very seriously and he preps everyone for the dive. He gives an accurate summary... More

Carlos knows how to run a premiere service-oriented business. Expect good communication by email in advance. What was most impressive was the service of his crew that helps in the small shop there on the beach, and on the boat. They made you almost feel bad if you tried to carry your towel. We did nothing but enjoy the dives.... More

Our whole family where first time divers. The class and practice session in the pool was great. The open dive at the reef was awesome. Great attention to safety by the crew. We loved it

I always wanted to dive with my friends. This tour gave me a great opportunity for my girlfriend and me. She had full price ($100) for the discovery tour with training and I had an awesome discounted price ($68) without training (payback time for my PADI certificate!). Francisco is a very patient, trust-worthy, and experienced coach to dive along. He... More

I booked the PADI certification course for myself and my two adult children. It was a wonderful experience. We had a fabulous and patient instructor (Andi) and divemaster (Raoul). The experience was easy from booking to completion. They explained every step and answered each and every question we had. I highly recommend Cancun Scuba Center. We plan to come back... More

taking me awhile to write this review because I don't usually write reviews. I wanted to give big thanks to Juan Carlos! He took such good care of us. My husband and I are both advance divers, but it was our first time in Cozumel. The beautiful reef and all the rich marine life was simply amazing. Juan Carlos had... More
