Trip was amazing water clarity with turtles was a little cloudy due to weather, but Paulo and Roberto made sure we saw plenty of turtles. Cenotes were absolutely amazing, also included a Mayan cleansing ceremony that was epic. Big shout out to Paulo and Roberto they were extremely knowledgeable, and friendly. Would recommend this to everyone! Thanks again from Rory... More

My son (OWD) and I (AOWD) wanted to do a couple of dives and we decided to give this diving school a try. What a great choice. First and foremost this diving school is really concerned about security (which is vital to me as well). Pepe, the guy at the desk of this diving school, made it extremely clear to... More

Just completed an Open Water Certification course as well as a post course dive. Juan was an amazing instructor-knowledgeable, funny, patient and positive. Miguel also taught me and he was fantastic as well! The staff was friendly and very helpful and made the experience memorable.

We took a private snorkel trip with the crew at SCUBA CARIBE. These guys were awesome and well prepared. We took a boat over to the snorkel location and the team introduced themselves played some fun music, but made safety a priority. Once at the location we all jumped in the water and followed the guys through the water and... More

Stayed at the Riu Cancun and were interested in going for an excursion on our last day. We had decided on the Jungle Tour with Scuba Caribe, and proceeded to place our payment. After 3 tries on my Visa, the staff explained that the charges were not going through, and we were not allowed to go on the excursion. It... More

On the day before we left was when we used Scubacaribe for the first time. Wow what a difference! This time we decided to use them... More

We walked by a Scuba Caribe kiosk out by the beach at Playa del Carman. They urged us to look at their beautiful tour pictures. We had mentioned that we heard that the best snorkeling in the world was in Cozumel. They said that no, you had to dive to see anything good there. They told us that the best... More

Good afternoon Edgar, Many thanks for sharing your experience with us. We appreciate the opportunity to respond. We believe you´re refering to our tour to Akumal-chikiha, which is one of our star tours and where it is very unusual to have a bad review. It would be very helpful for us to know your details so that we can find... More

I initially tried the free pool session offered by my hotel (Riu Tequila), and it convinced me and two of my friends to try it for real. I've forgotten his name, but the male Associate at the Riu Tequila did a good job explaining the basics and what we would get if we did complete a full dive. Afterwards and... More

Good morning, Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, we don´t have more details to analize your specific case, but we never kick our clients off before the time limit. We do tell them from the distance what the time is because most of them don´t take any watch into the water and they should know when is time to go... More
