Amazing Experience!
Aug 2021
My husband and I had such a fun time on the Discovery Dive! Charlie was amazing and fun, and did an excellent job teaching us how to dive. He always made sure we felt comfortable before moving to the next step, and he checked in with us periodically to make sure everything was okay. The coral reef itself was gorgeous and full of colorful fish - everything we hoped for. All in all, this was a great way to spend our time in port, and we couldn't recommend Doctor Dive more highly!

Amazing First Dive
Jun 2021 • Couples
Both my girlfriend and I were very nervous for our first ever scuba dive experience, however Antonio was super helpful and very clear explaining all of the safety procedures before we dove. During the dive, he was very helpful and patient getting us to the proper depth without ear pain. The dive was beautiful and so much fun, countless exotic fish, a sea turtle, lobsters and a stingray. Couldn't recommend this any higher!

Class act all the way!
Feb 2020 • Family
I am a certified diver that has not been in the water in 15 years and needed a refresher. My 13 year old son was also with me to try scuba out for the first time. Charly & the whole staff were absolutely fantastic with the training/demos required to get down for the first time safely without wasting a whole day in a classroom setting. I also had a moment of panicking when i thought i would not get down. My mind was saying yes, but my body don’t agree and i thought I’d end up back on the boat while the others dove. Without being pushy, Charly got me to calm down and made sure i enjoyed the day. Helpful, caring, good equipment & boat. Class act all around, highly recommend!

Discovery dive for my teenage daughter went great
Jan 2020
I took my 14yo daughter here to try out scuba diving. It went great. They were professional, friendly, and fun. We had a great time. In addition to my daughter who was doing the discovery dive, I was also taking a refresher with two other certified divers. After 30 minutes of "class work" we walked across the road and into the water to practice our skills. After that we jumped in the boat and had a great time underwater. The reef we went to was less than 10 minutes away via boat and the whole thing went smoothly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend these folks!

Great Experience for 1st time open water diving
Jan 2020
Took my 16 year old daughter, who had completed the PADI classroom and closed water dives, diving with Doctor Dive. Our guide John was fantastic and was with us every step of the way. The weather was a little rough, by our standards which made my daughter a little anxious. John assisted her each step of the way. We dove for roughly 45 minutes and saw everything from stingrays to lobsters to crab and more. It was the perfect exposure to diving for myself and a great first experience open water diving for my daughter. As a travel consultant, I will be recommending Doctor Dive to all my clients when they are in Costa Maya.

Great excursion!
Dec 2019 • Family
My husband and 14 year old son did beginners scuba diving, they both loved it. The Italian diver helped my son, he was very nice, accommodating and encouraging. He took his time to allow my son to discover every animal, rock and coral piece he wanted to. The over all staff was very professional, and I plan on doing some more diving with them.

I recommend anyone!
