We took an easy shuttle from the port (we were on a cruise) and travelled for about 10 minutes to the small town of Mahahual. Finding Gypsea Divers was easy. We had some time to kill so we hung out at the beach and the boys chased iguanas. The tour operators were very gracious. They lent us long sleeve tops... More

As a long time professional scuba diver and instructor I would, without hesitation, recommend Gypsea Divers for anyone wanting to dive in Mahahual. The rental gear was very well maintained and without problems. The entire staff was super friendly and ready to help. Abel was an attentive divemaster focused on safety and that everyone enjoys their dive - he felt... More

I must say, of ALL the planning and excursions I booked in the Western Caribbean, Catherine, of Gypsea Divers was the quickest to respond to any questions or concerns. Additionally, the cruise line changed the day of port, a few days prior to departure and Catherine was able to make a quick modification to our plans and contact us so... More

As small business that is, you feel your training real personal and this is important with something related to safety.

I can't speak more highly of these guys. We went to Mahuhual on a 2 day stop desperate to get some diving in. Katherine was super accommodating and gave us the times available and set us up with our gear upon booking. It had been a while since myself and my travel buddy had been diving and so mentioned this... More

Very cool little dive shop surrounded with great people Very laid back atmosphere while still maintaining a strong sense of safety. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. The area of Mahahual has some good topography dives. You may not see a ton of marine life (this is Mexico after all), but unless you just came from the Galapagos, you should... More

Gypsea Divers provided an AMAZING experience for my wife and I. We are both fairly-newly certified divers who were arriving from a cruise ship and Catherine and Abel happily accommodated our needs. The rental gear they provided (at a super-low fee imo) was in perfect working order as was their boat. We were taken to several world-class diving spots where... More

We've dove with Gypsea before,and it's always fantastic. This time there were four of us, two returning customers, and two new. With Catherine and Abel at Gypsea Divers, you're never a customer, but instantly a friend. They are people who have the dive shop as an expression of their love for the sport, and the Village of Mahahual. That comes... More
