Patojo and Alex are the best dive masters in San Padro. This was our second trip to the Key and this was the first stop we made upon arrival as we wanted to dive with Patojo again. Had a wonderful time again!

Patojo's was an overall awesome experience. Low key, yet professional in every way. They only take out smaller groups and they will take you where ever you want to go. Patojo greeted us at the shop and gave us a short briefing before going out...More
