Rocky is a fantastic divemaster, and Joaguin is the best captain. We stayed at the Occidental, got picked up an hour after the on-site boat departed (giving us more time to enjoy breakfast and not be rushed), did our two dives, and got back before the other divers. Love the small fast boats - 6 divers at most on our... More

It was a quick taxi ride from the port to the small office. We had our own equipment but weren't given a discount for that. The guide was excellent and made sure everyone was comfortable with the adventure. Great underwater views along the coral reef.

Great dive. We have dove with PH for several years. I gave this a 4 star because the equipment to rent is getting a bit worn. The regulator that I was using had some sort of issue, it made a terrible noise when I inhaled. It had a bit of constriction on air flow but still worked. When I asked... More

Good diving, great staff from boat captains to dive masters and the restaurant is great. They moved to new digs right next door and they are great. Better dive shop and much nicer restaurant. They now have their own dock which is great for watching sunsets. More rooms on the way in the new building but for us regulars the... More

Had a wonderful week diving with Papa Hogs. They were able to pick us up via boat by our hotel. They were always on time which speaks a lot of Mexico. Their gear was in good condition and you could tell the master divers knew what they were doing. Would highly recommend them as the go to dive shop.

A repeat customer for a long time. Papa Hogs offers a safe, friendly and fun place to dive. From restaurant staff to boat captains to dive masters, all outstanding and friendly. Mike and Margaret have done such an amazing job. Highly recommended.

I started diving in 2003, my 1st few dives in in Playa Del Carmen, where we have our "home base" in the Yucatan. Mike and Margaret Geren, owners, have always been so accommodating and patient while we make the ferry trip over from the mainland to dive with them. Their dive guides, and boat skippers are so helpful, and Francisco... More

We dove and stayed twice with Papa Hogs. The first time we were very new, and the divemasters, who are locals, were distant and not overly helpful. The first time we were there we spent a sleepless couple of nights due to blasting music until very late. Second time was better, no blasting music. The food is ok, reasonably priced,... More

my wife and have dived with hogs for the past decade. my wife is a nervous diver so we use a private dive master for her, they are all competent, safe and sensitive to her needs, she is especially fond of rocky. Margarate always sets her up with him. look forward to seeing them all in april Rick&Luci
