Frank, the owner of Pepe Scuba, runs a great dive shop. The whole crew is friendly, helpful and safety conscious. Pepe's uses small fast boats and there were never more than eight divers on the boat. It had been years since I dove Cozumel and I was thrilled with my experience. The sea life is abundant and the reef is... More

My wife and I are both experienced divers with more than 300 dives logged. Cozumel and Pepe Scuba are our favorite dive destinations. We've been to at least a dozen other destinations but continue to return to Cozumel because the diving is consistently the best we've found, due in no small part to Frank, Abdias, and the rest of the...

Pepe is adjacent to the Coral Princess Hotel. The boat pulls up to the dock right in front of the hotel, and off you go, right to the dive site. Couldn't be easier. The dive instructors are great at selecting sites and very helpful finding and pointing out big animals and tiny critters. On a dive last week, the instructor... More

First class operation with the finest dive masters on the island. Safety is their first priority, especially with new divers (my three kids!). Will definitely dive with them again in the future.

We dove two days with this shop, great two days! Sure, their equipment could use a little TLC, but if you bring your own they will treat you right and show you great dives. Their equipment is a little used and they don't rent dive computers so freshen up on your RDP skills. In Cozumel, just about any shop will... More

Frank and team make ever dive memorable. Outstanding dive masters and boat captain make for fabulous dives. Abdias is the best dive master on the island. Frank & Rosie run a great & friendly dive operation in the hotel coral princess. No matter what dive capabilities you have they cater for all levels. Many thanks team Pepe Scuba

I have just had a great holiday and did 24 dives with Pepe Scuba. In Europe I am used to strict German or Swiss dive schools that follow the PADI procedures rigidly and everything is planned days in advance.
