Been there for a 2 tank dives morning, and I had an excellent moment!
Thank you captain and mi amigo el instructor, I just don’t have troubles to remember names!

Nothing much to say...

2 wrecks in a dive, a huge current other one, I mean I couldn’t expect more.

The equipment can me improved...

Food and snacks after dive...

Don’t do it often but I bought the tee from the shop as I loved this moment

Thank GmeSni

Great trip, 6 of us just dove 5 days with Pepe Scuba and had a great time and some fantastic dives.
We went with 1 new diver and Luis was great on the check out dive.
Dive Masters Sergio and Abdias were great on all our trips.
The boats were fast and the Captains were great.
I really can't say enough. I would recommend Pepe Scuba to any level diver.
Frank runs a fantastic operation
Thanks

Once again Frank and his staff provided outstanding diving service for our large group. Fast boats, attentive and safe divemasters and boat captains, and the overall cooperative spirit of all of the staff are the highlights of Pepe Scuba shop. Their excellent service is one of the main reasons our group has returned for our annual trip to the Coral Princess Hotel for over 20 years.

This was my 4th year diving in Cozumel, and every time I have booked with Pepe's. The first time I booked with Pepe's was because it is located on the premises of the Coral Princess Resort where I was staying. After my initial experience, it was clear that I did not need to look any further in the future. Frank, the owner, is as friendly and helpful person you could ever meet. His prices are very affordable and he will do every thing possible to accommodate your needs. A case in point: This year the group that I normally meet up with in late June-early July (usually 8-10 divers) was joined by a very large group that had always booked in June. Add in the normal number of occasional divers and you have a logistical mess on your hands. Frank normally runs 3 boats holding up to 9 divers, a dive- master and boat captain. Scheduling such numbers and skill levels under normal conditions would be a challenge, but Frank was also down a boat. Long story short, Frank rented and another boat, and worked with all the other divers to schedule additional afternoon dives so that everyone dove when they wanted with the group(s) they wanted to be with. Pepe's has all the rental equipment you need onsite, and Nitrox is available (additional fee) with 24 hour notice. The staff is friendly and professional. The dive-masters are conscientious and do an excellent job of leading their dives. The boats pick you up at the resort landing where Pepe's is located, and at the end of your dive there are 4 rinse tanks, 2 drying racks and 2 showers conveniently situated just to the right of the landing. If you are staying at another resort and can't get to Pepe's, you can arrange for the dive boat to pick you and your gear up nearby. I will book with Pepe's again next year.

Four years in a row and 100's of incredible dives with Pepe! No other dive company in Cozumel compares to this professional, friendly, and safe operation.
I'm a Dive Master from the USA and I've been diving around the world for years.
Pepe has the island's fastest boats. Frank, the owner, goes out of his way to accommodate all divers. They will place divers on the proper boats, according to their experience levels.
The instructors and Dive Masters, Abdias & Valentine, are all very professional and patient.
Whether you're a student, beginner, or a pro, don't waste your time. Simply dive with Pepe when on the beautiful island of Cozumel.
