We have dived with numerous dive masters all over the world and Paulino is easily our favorite. He has a wonderfully warm and caring attitude. Paulino's entire focus is... More

Last April Paulino and his crew provide us with a ride to el Cielo a section of the island that is so beautiful and full of sea stars. Our intentions were to take underwater photos of two beautiful mermaids surrounded of the beautiful sea starts for a cover of a popular magazine. I must said the knowledge of the location... More

Paulino from Pelagic Ventures escorted myself and 5 other divers from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen. The swift boat whisked us to the mainland in no time at all. With 2 other crew from the boat, we were taken good care of. We did two dives including an interval along the sands of a quite and islotated beach. Fresh ceviche... More

There is no way to write a good enough review for this dive shop... but I'll try! To begin with I'm a NAUI Certified diver and the most important requirement for me was an experienced and capable NAUI Dive Master. I also wanted to dive with a small group and didn't want to be be just one of twenty heads... More

Mary and Paulino have joined the operation and are two great additions to the Pelagic team! Mary handles scheduling and organization and Paulino is the newest Dive Master on the boat. From... More

This Dive operation has 2 boats and 2 amazing Divemasters: Troy and Paulino. My group was 3 people (me and 2 adult daughters). Pelagic picked us up at the hotel dock, always a small group sometimes just me and the girls! The Captain and Divemaster worked extremely well together regarding locations, gearing us up and rendezvous at dive's end. Both... More

My husband and I have been diving with the legacy Pelagic (Troy Ruhr) for almost 20 years. When we found out that the the company sold, we were a little cautious, but upon Troy's recommendation, we continued with Pelagic. The company is now owned by Mary Holloway and the dive side of the operation is run by her fiancée, Paulino.... More

I am an avid diver nearing 1000 dives. I’m also a PADI professional and work actively as an instructor within the dive industry so I have high expectations. I’ve traveled the world and had the chance to dive in some exciting places. One of my top 3 is Cozumel, Palancar because of Pelagic Ventures. Mary couldn’t have been more hospitable... More

Was able to get my open water certification with Paulino after taking courses in the states. Was pretty nervous about finding someone who was willing to take the time to go through everything with me in order to safely dive. Paulino created a fun, safe, and unforgettable experience. Was extremely comfortable diving with him. Went in a group of 6;... More
