Jason and his extended team are the best dive shop in town. I have been on several trips to the area and done many different dive adventures (Bull shark dive, Cenote's, Shipwreck, Cozumel). He is top notch and safety is of the utmost importance to him and the crew! I have even brought my two daughters along on some of... More

Jason was so patient and encouraging. I was having a hard time with the pool exercises but he kept me going. Once i was in the open water it was so worth it. I got certified in January 2006 with fantasea and haven't stop diving since. By far my best experiences have been with jason Sartain and Fantasea Dive!

To those people that always jump to go to Cozumal they need to try FANTASEA DIVE WITH JASON SARTAIN. The diving in PLAYA DEL CARMEN is every bit as good if not better than Cozumal. Not only is the diving excellent but Playa is a wonderful place to stay and visit. Jason is completely professional and pays a great deal... More

I live in Cozumel, Mexico and have been diving, both professionally and recreationally for almost 30 years - my first bull shark dive experience with Fantasea Dive is absolutely a stand out among 2000+ dives. Four very experienced divers and I came over from Cozumel to do the bull shark dive. We really had a tough time deciding which dive... More

Jason, Antonio, Miguel & Fernando took great care of me and my family! One day of diving with 3 snorkelers along and then two more days of diving for me and my 13 year old son. Diving was just the two of us with Jason, the owner, as our guide. He took us to a variety of dive sites along... More
