Found Cancun Scuba Center on Trip Advisor and was really happy with our experience. We did a couple of two-tank days and had Raul as our guide both days. He was great. This was my second dive trip post certification, so the format of a personal guide and only 4 divers on the boat that day was perfect. My 15... More

I went on a two tank dive with my sister and 19 year old daughter with Juan Carlos today. Everything on the website was easy to navigate and well described the options. Our dive preparations were excellent and the dive master even used a lighter to defog our masks. Our dives were great with just 5 of us on a... More

This was our fourth time diving with Juan Carlos and CSC. He never disappoints with his first class treatment. All of our personal gear was washed and ready everyday we went diving. His service is the true meaning of being on vacation. Can't wait to go back again.

Juan Carlos is the best Divemaster ever. His staff was over the top friendly and accommodating. It was a small group of 6 divers, 2 of which were completing open water certs but the dive was much fun, and boat crew did everything but clean out your mask. Juan performed a neat trick with a lighter to get rid of... More

While on a family vacation my wife told me to go for a scuba dive. Luckily I brought my PADI card with me. The resort was offering a deal on SCUBA but I decided to check out the local businesses instead. I walked up to the Cancun SCUBA Centre on Friday afternoon and almost walked away because no one was... More

I had prebooked to do some advanced training with CSC. When I arrived, I discovered I needed to complete another teacher based session and 2 dives before I could start. Hey, no problem. They were absolutely flexible and immediately got me going. I worked with Andy (Andrea) and the others who were out with us included Raul and Tony. I... More

We dove two sites in Cancun area with this center, and in all of our dives they were the most professional and enjoyable we have every experienced. Our dive master was Juan Carlos, and he is a true professional and a credit to the sport. He is very experienced, and can assess ability of each diver very quickly and tailors... More

We dove the underwater museum and Black Point. Carlos and his team were fantastic. We had 4 tanks each, over 2 days. They took pictures of us underwater and catered to the experience level of each diver. This was by far the highlight of my entire trip to Cancun. Thank you guys for such a wonderful time!!

This group offers diving and snorkeling off the same boat so both people in my party could do what we wanted on the same trip. It was my first time diving in the ocean and I wanted to see the underwater museum. Everyone on the boat was amazing, funny, professional, and knowledgeable. My stepdad had to make a last minute...
