You have to be strong it’s like a mind game
Jimmy_A, Sept 2023
My experience was good but it was very scary lol if you have no fears then you can do this .. because at first they give you a practice run in the regular pool and that’s going be a breeze it you going think it’s so easy like i thought it was . Lol i was wrong . It like by time it was for us to go in the real water i was scared . It was like a mind thing . It’s every time i went under i wanted to keep going up . But i went bout 30 fit under . You can be down there for up to 40 mins . I was down there 17 mins then i was good i was very nervous but it was very good experience ask me would i do it again idk but that’s cause i already did . But you should’ve give it a shot , everybody different.. also the boat ride to the jump in point . Gave me a lil motion sickness, real rocky but it was overall good
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Thank you for your review Jimmy! You are right: for this activity is super important to control your fears so you can do it successfully, this depend only in the person as everyone is different, regarding to sea sick we have a recommendation before buy the activity to take pills for motion sickness to prevent it, we would love to see you next time you visit Cancun for the revenge!
Great experience!

Everything went smoothly, had two dives as each for almost an hour (depends on how you use your tank). The instructor was knowledgeable and friendly. Would book again.

Awesome for beginners and experienced divers
Melani_W, July 2023
We had an amazing time and Marin was very patient with our group of 3 beginner scuba divers (including 2 ‘tweens’)! The 2 sites were stunning! Highly recommend. Thanks to Marin & Carolina
Response from Host, July 2023
Thank you so much Melanie! It was our pleasure!
Had a blast!
Traveler_N, July 2023
One of the best experiences we’ve ever had! I was extremely nervous going into this experience since I don’t consider myself a good swimmer. Our instructor was extremely patient with us and made the experience very smooth and comfortable. Would 100% recommend this!
Don’t miss this opportunity!! It’s worth it ❤️

EeVon_W, June 2023
The instructor (Andi if not mistaken) is friendly and helpful during the diving. The lesson at pool side was easy to understand and the instructor ensured the participants were able to master the basic skills before diving. The diving spots were amazing especially MUSA which you can’t get to see in other countries! Highly recommend this scuba diving experience!
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you very much Ee Von! Happy you liked our service!
Best experience of my life!!!!
Jessica_D, June 2023
Our instructor was the absolute best!! Very clear and concise showing us the how to and she was very patient with everyone involved. Once we got into the open water, I was very comfortable knowing she was right there, especially because she kept checking in on all of us to make sure we were okay and comfortable. Best experience of my life. I will definitely be coming back for a second round to get my certification !!!!
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you very much Jessica! Hope we can see you soon and dive together again!
Best excursion ever!
Hunter_B, May 2023
This was the best excursion we did while in Cancún. The guide was super helpful. She was patient and kind and the excursion itself was amazing. We got to see a sea turtle eat on a coral for a while and it was so nice. Would definitely do again!
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you Hunter! Hope we can see you next time you visit Cancun!
Beware!!! Adventure ahead
ZeKiwi_C, May 2023
You will have the time of your life. It’s an excursion truly for beginners. You start off in the pool before you go to the ocean. The instructor was very thorough and she made she we were comfortable at all times. We paid for the pictures and received them right at the end of the excursion. Id definitely recommend this activity for anyone who’s ever wanted to try scuba diving
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you very much Zewiki! It was our pleasure to have you with us!
It's so worth it - Ask for Lorraine!
Donna_G, May 2023
If you can, you must request Lorraine. She is the reason this trip was so wonderful. We couldn't have made it without her. My sister and I are nervous Nellie's, so I don't know how we even decided scuba was a good idea for us, but when in Mexico you do crazy things! Just having a woman instructor put us at ease. She's so calm. She knew how to make us relax, and signal us in the water to breathe calmly. She held on to us. I was getting anxious about equalizing, but she hung in there with me until I was able to safely ascend. It was miraculous down there! Ohhhh! We will do this again, but only with Lorraine! :-)
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you so much! We are happy you enjoyed your activity!
Sarah_H, May 2023
Beautiful. Its always been a dream of mine to get to see the coral reefs and man did this tour ever deliever. Our guide was incredible and the entire team were such a great team. Would do it all over again myself and they make sure you’re comfortable and teach you the skills to succeed.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you very much Sarah! Happy that we made an unforgettable experience diving with us!
A perfect scuba experience !
udaya_k, May 2023
I am a first time scuba diver and Marin did a great job explaining the process and equipment. Carolina communicated well regarding checkin. Dived at 2 spots and saw colorful fish, turtle, manta ray, yellow sting ray. He guided us to the spots with lots of fish and other marine life. Apart from these, he took great videos and photos underwater and even sent an 80 sec edited video. Those are truly amazing and totally worth the price you pay.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you so much Udaya! Was our pleasure to have you with us!
Breath taking experience
Govinda_D, Apr 2023
The instruction was super helpful. Our guides did a great job at explaining. I was apprehensive at first since this was my first time but it was so worth it. The views were breathtaking. The sea life was really cool and it was amazing to see the under water art exhibit and wildlife. Thank you!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you Govinda! Glad you liked the activity!
Such An Incredible Experience!!!
Caleigh_A, Mar 2023
What an incredible experience! Our expert dive instructors, Lorena and Carolina were top notch. Very friendly and made us feel comfortable during our first scuba diving adventure. My only complaint is I wish our small group spread out a little bit during the swim. A couple of the other divers kept whacking me lol. So if that happens, just stick to the back. Other than that. You won’t regret this excursion. Plenty of tropical fish and coral reefs to see. Got the opportunity to see flat fish, lobsters, sea star, star fish, sand dollars, and numerous other tropical fish. 10/10 would definitely recommend!!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you Caleigh and Edwin! It was our pleasure to have you with us!
Emily_H, Feb 2023
Lorena, I think was our instructors name, was wonderful and patient. She held my hand the entire time. I had a very hard time trying to equalize the pressure so she went down with me very slowly. The water is so crystal clear and seeing so much life on the reef, it was amazing. We will definitely seek this company out for our next trip
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you Emily! Hope can seee you next time you visit Cancun!
DennisTursich, Feb 2023
Marín was a great teacher, very knowledgeable and helpful. We saw lobsters, sea turtles, rays, star fish, lion fish and much more. A great first time diving.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you Dennis! Glad you enjoyed the activity!
Must have experience for any ocean lover
Will_R, Jan 2023
