We had a great time diving with the The Reef Marina There were 4 of us ranging from 25 years to 4 years of diving experience. I always do a lot of research into the local dive shops and talk to the shop several times until I felt comfortable with them. NOT a “Cattle Boat” operation! Only take out small... More

We took a catamaran excursion with about 30 of the guests that came to a destination wedding together. Great Day! 2 snorkeling stops on the reef and a return to a nice meal. Victor, our tour guide, was very entertaining and the captain and crew of the "Happy Ending" catamaran were a blast. Highly recommend1

My group (7 divers) and I did a number of dives with the Reef Marina on both the Playa del Carmen side and Cozumel side. The dive shop was very open to our needs and suggestions as we had a brand new diver that had never done open water as we know it (she certified in a quarry in the... More

This is the second time I have brought a group of 20 or more divers to Stephan and Reef Marina.....And once again they delivered a great dive experience. Whale sharks, Cenotes and reef.....Flawless....They are the best and dare I say they have become family to our dive group...... If only I had Stephan and his staff on all our trips!... More

We have just come back from a lovely holiday in Mexico Playercar, we did a number of scuba dives with The Reef Marina dive centre, the team were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, their dive briefings, dive boat drop offs and boat safety were all excellent. We would highly recommend them for all of your diving requirement's.

Did three days of diving with Reef Marina and had a great experience. They made sure we saw new things on each dive and took care of our gear between dives. Service was great and dive leaders took us on fun and challenging dives. Make sure you dive the Cenotes!

This was my first ocean dive, since becoming PADI Open Water certified last summer. I walked into the office and spoke with the staff. They listed to my questions and asked some of their own to find the right drive trip for me. I opted for two shallow dives to get some experience before jumping into more complicated dives. They...

My husband and I went to the Reef Marina to pass our PADI.
