Two Trips...both great!

We did two trips with VADC. Intro to SCUBA for my son and wife. Snorkeling for our 10 year old and I. Both went great. I would recommend Barbara and her staff!

Loved both the snorkeling, despite the mandatory life jacket you can't really free dive anyway... and the two scuba dives. The first on Barbara's favorite spot at around 25 meters was fantastic. Crystal clear water and gentle drift current. The second one at about 15 meters was fun also and very long. almost an hour. Both Barbara and Dominique are... More

Conveniently located at the Mahekal Beach Resort, Vida Aquatica was well equipped and staffed to provide the best in drift ocean diving and on-shore cenote cave diving. We made two enjoyable drift dives and four exciting cenote dives. Ask about their multi-dive rates.

It has been a long time dream of mine to go scuba diving. My wife had no real interest. We went through the pool experience in the morning followed by a 45 minute 38 foot dive in the ocean. Definitely nerve racking, but Roman (our instructor) was amazing. The experience was better than I could have imagined, my wife even... More

This is the second time that we worked with Vida Aquatica and, this time around, we scheduled a private tour. From start to finish, the staff was a completely class act and easy to work with. Barbara made sure that everything was in order and that we had a great time. It was the kid's first time out and so... More

We had originally passed by to rent snorkel gear on our own trip to visit cenotes and after talking with Barbara about their snorkeling prices and info we decided to do it the next day. It was an...

Cyan-Ha staff was very friendly and helpful. Good trip for the money (don't have to go to Cozumel to see amazing sea life). Saw fish, sea turtles and rays.

Girlfriend and I stayed at Mahekal for 9 nights. Wanted to do some diving, so we went to Cyan Ha. As my girlfriend had not dived in 2 years almost, she took a refresher course. She was very happy with the class and it boosted her confidence. We then did 2 ocean dives with our guide, Roman. I was also... More
