Welcome to Doctor Dive Costa Maya!The best scuba diving club in Costa Maya...

Welcome to Doctor Dive Costa Maya!The best scuba diving club in Costa Maya (Mahahual)! Make no mistake, this is not a "paper club" like many others. We dive, and we dive a lot! We dive from boat and travel off spots together.A recent study revealed that this area is one of the place in the world where has more marine species. One of the great attractions of diving around Costa Maya is its abundant marine life. Climatic and sea conditions are particularly favorable to allow that diving activities are conducted safely and always fun, for 12 months a year.The particular characteristics of the coast and the underwater scenery of Costa Maya offer the possibility to make spectacular dives at altitudes between -15 and -60 meters, within a 10 minute boat planing.If you're not exploring carribean underwater, you're missing half the show.We have one simple philosophy, that is to teach and guide divers through close guidance and provide the opportunities to get out and dive!Our equipment and our qualified and experienced teachers offers a multitude of choices for diving in the spots of the coast for both beginners and experienced divers.We offer the full range of PADI courses, from Open Water to Dive Master: all our courses are individually tailored. We don't do big groups or mass courses like most other dive schools. Our enthusiasm and caring approach is to teach our passion by experienced PADI Dive Instructors. Our crew come from professional teaching and coaching backgrounds.

I've been certified to dive 33 years, so it is fair to say I know the subtleties of what makes a good dive operation. These guys are starting out their dive business doing all the right things. Namely, taking excellent care of their of customers. From the first time I contacted them, Alberto was prompt with the e-mail replies and... More

We had a super time snorkeling with Giovanni. He was very professional and also cared about our experience. He went the extra mile to find different types of sea life for us to observe. We highly recommend Doctor Dive!

We took an introductory scuba class at Dr. Dive with instructors Charlie and Juan last week while in Costa Maya off of the Norwegian Dawn. We are avid snorkelers, but wanted to try Scuba diving for the first time. We booked through Shore Excursioneer. The place was easy to find, and we had no problems getting to and from the... More

I picked a cruise ship for good dive stops and we had about 5 hours on a cruise ship stop at Costa Maya. Though I've been diving for 27 years, I had my 19 and 21 year old daughters who have much less experience and no equipment. Doctor Dive was a great choice. They understood our schedule and took great... More

We had two amazing dives. Since my boyfriend wasn't able to equalize the second dive and had to stop, they offered him another free dive with the next boat - that was very nice. We had a good time and I was so happy to see a turtle :-) Thanks.

We booked a dive directly from Doctor Dive instead of going with a ship excursion and I'm so glad we did. Pedro was great and he took photos of us and a great video with a sea turtle. Thanks for a great time.

My bf and I did a snorkel on our recent trip to Costa Maya. Pedro was our dive master. Got to see so many creatures and gorgeous fish. He was very knowledgeable about the reef and the sea life. It was very informative as well as fun. Water was choppy and Pedro had a line that we could hold onto... More

Just finished a one tank dive with Doctor Diver with my 13 year old daughter. This was her best dive ever, and I agreed that I enjoyed myself, quite a bit, as well. Hands down, the reason for my high mark was the staff, in particular, our dive master, Juan. My daughter is not the strongest diver- Juan took the... More
