Frank and team make ever dive memorable. Outstanding dive masters and boat captain make for fabulous dives. Abdias is the best dive master on the island. Frank & Rosie run a great & friendly dive operation in the hotel coral princess. No matter what dive capabilities you have they cater for all levels. Many thanks team Pepe Scuba

I have just had a great holiday and did 24 dives with Pepe Scuba. In Europe I am used to strict German or Swiss dive schools that follow the PADI procedures rigidly and everything is planned days in advance. Pepe's is the opposite, the decisions of which boat, which instructor, which site are made at the moment of departure, often... More

We recently visited Cozumel and wanted to dive with Pepe Scuba since we were staying at the Coral Princess and it seemed to be the most convenient option. However, several weeks prior to our arrival we started trying to contact Pepe Scuba to arrange our diving and never received a single response (by email and phone). Finally I "friended" their...

Spent two weeks diving with Frank and the guys at Pepe Scuba. Their boats are small, comfy, and fast and will go to any reef you want to dive. His equipment is in perfect condition and his staff is friendly and helpful. Prices? Try to beat them on the island. I will bet that you can't. So, diving Cozumel? Give... More

We booked a 3 hour snorkeling tour for Palancar. Sergio was an excellent guide. He showed us eels, barracuda, stingrays, plus a lot of beautiful fish. We had a great time.

Pepe's uses fast boats and max of 8 divers per boat. Very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly Staff and Dive Masters, Abdias is the best. We always have great dives with them. We've been diving with them for over 10 years and they are the best.
