I got certified with this operation in 2011, so Pepe Scuba is my "home" shop for this reason ... but mostly because we always come back here. There is no safer, more knowledgeable, more relaxed dive operation on Cozumel. The dive masters know the reef, they know their fish, and they know how to get everyone in and out of the water safely. I've rented gear from the shop before; they've done some basic repairs for me, as well. Everything is always top-quality and friendly. I'm happy to call Pepe Scuba home!

My family and I had a wonderful snorkeling experience thanks to Frank and his staff at Pepe Scuba. We booked a snorkeling trip for the day we were in Cozumel on a cruise. Getting to the shop was a short (10 min, $16) taxi ride from the cruise terminal. We arrived and had a nice lunch at the Coral Princess where Pepe's is located before getting our the boat. Pepe and his staff were in no rush and made us feel like we shouldn't be either. The boat was in great shape with shade, water & snacks and we had it all to ourselves. Two crew were on board, one to captain the boat and one to guide us in the water. The daughter of one of them was on board too which was great. I got the feeling we were being taken out by friends.
Since the currents are strong, having a live boat was essential. The crew was great, very relaxed and made us feel special. This is the way to go if you want a personalized experience and the price was very reasonable.

We had a fun time diving with Pepe Scuba, we did 3 separate days of 2 tank dives. It was nice having the same crew and boats each day and knowing what to expect. The boats are small, and the water is rough, so don't bring more on the boat than you have to. No guarantee it will stay dry. Also, surface interval bring a snack if you want anything more than some cookies and an apple.

We really did have a good time the dive sites were lively and the owner was very nice.

We have been diving exclusively with Pepe Scuba Shop for almost 10 years.
In December 2015 their Dive Instructor, Abdias Chale was recognized with an award during Scuba Fest for excellence in all aspects of Scuba Diving. We all have different reasons for choosing a particular dive shop, However, Abdias Chale and the owner Frank Ferri as well as every captain and dive master at Pepe's are the best on the Island. Safe, courteous, environmentally conscientious. Simply the cream of the crop in this highly competitive scuba diving heaven. Next time you visit Cozumel, stop by their shop and give them a chance, you will not be disappointed.
