My 18 yr. old son went diving with Scuba Libre. This was his first dive alone.They took very good care of him. He had a great dive. Best of all they take photos you can purchase for a small fee. Scuba Libre created a great memory on my son's Senior trip.

Having not dived in a few years I opted for the refresher course, Instructor was friendly, knowledgeable and made the refresher portion of the dive go by quickly, on the dive itself he was attentive, able to lead us towards the more interesting features of the reef and made the group feel comfortable despite the varying ability levels. Great experience

While staying at Sandos in Playacar we dive with Scuba Libra. They were fantastic from beginning to end. The instructor was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We felt very safe and secure on our dive. We went on two dives with them. Both sites we dove were incredible! Beautiful coral reef with abundant wildlife. We even swam with a huge turtle!... More
