I've gone on around 50 dives in South and Central America and have never met such a fun, informative, and responsible dive team. I never once felt unsafe or overly monitored, and was always kept in the loop of what was going on. Diving with Maria, one of the instructors/dive masters, has been some of the best diving experiences I've... More

I have to give this dive company an A++++! Karla, Maria, and Co Co are the most passionate, wonderful people you will ever meet, from emailing, to equipment, and to the actual dives! I am a very new diver, but I am an advanced diver, but I am far from advanced. Co co was the instructor that went with me... More

My husband and I were in Playa when we found out that the female bull sharks had just arrived to give birth. They stay from mid-November for 2 to 3 months. My husband contacted the dive center online and the owner was very responsive about providing information. We arrived at the dive center as requested at 7:15 and Dive Master... More

Stay away from this shop. Karla lied about everything. The boat was late, the dive site was sparse and the captain of the boat was dangerous. The dive gear she supplied had no depth gauges and the BC's leaked. We complained and had to find our own way back to resort. Stay away from this one.

First of all, I must say that I have decided to dive with them because Karla is very friendly and has a convincing personality. She also tries to make you feel as comfortable as possible. On my first day I did two dives in a cenote and the dives were fun but the DM was terrible. He was a typical... More

I am writing this on behalf of my fiancé who went on the dive. I am also a diver but they did not have room in the boat for me, so I stayed behind. We do not have our own equipment and rented the necessary items. My fiancé said the stuff was not very good and things were breaking. He... More

Great dive, I brought my own gear, they require you wear a full 3mm suit for this dive and the second dive was not so great - hence the four stars. The staff are very friendly and attentive - but you pretty much on your own for changing out your gear during and between dives, but if they see anyone... More

We went in early January because I did some research and that was one of the best times to see and interact with the pregnant females.
