This snorkel/dive operation is well organized and very professional. We did the all day trip to Banco Chinchorro which is 1800 pesos per person (leave at 9:30, return at 5p.m.). I can report that the snorkeling is ok, just ok. This is not the operator's fault, so keep your expectations in check. There is much better snorkeling and marine life... More

Day one, excuses on boat availability. Finally dive a couple of reefs too close to town. Jorge, the divemaster, wants to dive 50 minute dives on shallow reefs, says his computer isn't allowing him to dive longer. Hello? Don't go as deep and put yourself in that position. The rest of us had plenty of time and air left. Day... More

With my wife we had a road-trip along Mexico and came upon this peaceful ocean village. I was impressed by the water's clarity seen from the beach. I searched and found this operation by chance and was pleasantly attended by Ernesto and Jorge who gave me a wealth of diving information, they have the experience of many decades of diving....

We stopped in Costa Maya on our last shore excursion of four straight days from our cruise. I had planned to just relax and sit on the beach. When we arrived, my kids expressed an interest in Discover Scuba, after they first tried it two days prior in Roatan. I was not going to let the opportunity pass us up.... More

Mahahual is an out of the way place in Mexico, but is up and coming. I wasn't sure what to expect for a dive operation, and was pleasantly surprised when I meet Jorge. He run an excellent operation at a great price. He also has a wonderful team of dive masters. This yeat(2016) is the second time I have use... More

I was a little late off the cruise ship and was looking to go diving. I enjoyed the walk from the pier to Mahahual. I then had the chance to stumble upon their little diving shop Bucaneros (pirate themed) and meet Arturo. He was simply awesome. He closed up shop and took me out diving. You always hear about the...

My friends and I went to Chinchorro banc with Bucaneros’s team and it was a great choice. They’re experients, careful with the turists and with the nature. We did some snorkel and even without a deep dive we saw a lot of fishes, sea stars, sharks and a giant turtle! Bucaneros also have the fastest boat among the operators, and... More

I have recently taken a trip with Bucaneros after researching every scuba operator in town and was really happy with our choice. They have the newest, largest, and fastest boat and this makes all the difference as you will want to get to the reef rapidly to enjoy every minute of this paradise. The equipment is also good but the... More

We have dove with Jorge many times but this year brought another successful dive. If you are a good diver or a novice, someone that has not dove for years, or someone that wants to learn, this is the dive shop for you. These people are very careful with their divers. You are not "on your own." The equipment is... More
