Welcome to Doctor Dive Costa Maya!The best scuba diving club in Costa Maya...

Welcome to Doctor Dive Costa Maya!The best scuba diving club in Costa Maya (Mahahual)! Make no mistake, this is not a "paper club" like many others. We dive, and we dive a lot! We dive from boat and travel off spots together.A recent study revealed that this area is one of the place in the world where has more marine species. One of the great attractions of diving around Costa Maya is its abundant marine life. Climatic and sea conditions are particularly favorable to allow that diving activities are conducted safely and always fun, for 12 months a year.The particular characteristics of the coast and the underwater scenery of Costa Maya offer the possibility to make spectacular dives at altitudes between -15 and -60 meters, within a 10 minute boat planing.If you're not exploring carribean underwater, you're missing half the show.We have one simple philosophy, that is to teach and guide divers through close guidance and provide the opportunities to get out and dive!Our equipment and our qualified and experienced teachers offers a multitude of choices for diving in the spots of the coast for both beginners and experienced divers.We offer the full range of PADI courses, from Open Water to Dive Master: all our courses are individually tailored. We don't do big groups or mass courses like most other dive schools. Our enthusiasm and caring approach is to teach our passion by experienced PADI Dive Instructors. Our crew come from professional teaching and coaching backgrounds.

I have done several dives with Doctor Dive, including accompanying several "Discover Scuba" divers. Alberto was an absolute pro with my first time diver friends and helped them have a fantastic time! Don't miss out, if you're thinking about checking out scuba, try Doctor Dive!!

For some reason my reservation got bungled up so when I got there they had no intro class booked at all. They did the class just for me and took me diving. My dive master, John, was awesome...very thorough and knowledgeable. Highly recommend these guys. Best in Costa Maya!!!

My friend and I were on the NCL DAWN and thought the $180 2 tank dive they offered sounded WAY OVERPRICED. Thank God my instincts were correct and we walked out to the cabs and took a 8 mins cab ride to Doctor Dives. AMEN Wonderful friendly staff. Sam our Dive Master did a wonderful job and the place next... More

My family had an amazing trip. My 16 year old son did his first dive and the team worked with him and was so patient with him as a first time diver. The rest of the family did snorkling. We saw loin fish, lobsters, sting rays and clown fish lots of tropical fish. I would recommend these professionals to any... More

Took a couple of minutes to find the place. after that everything went smoothly. Charlie, the DM was very helpful and I had a good time. Not the best reed I've dove and not many fish but still a good day.

We went to Mahahual to get away from the crowds of Tulum. It is a small, quiet but charming little town with a beautiful beach and reasonable prices. We walked in the Doctor Dive shop where we were briefed in a friendly and professional way. They didn't force us into any booking, we said we'd come back the next morning... More

I will give Doctor Dive my best recommendations! Especially the instructor Sam, who did the open water course with me and my boyfriend, who did two dives ind the same time with us. Sam and the rest of the staff was very enthusiastic and professional, and I will definitely recommend this place if you consider doing a Padi certification or... More

My husband and I were in Mahahual from September 16 - 22. We booked five (2) tank dives with Doctor Dive. We could not be happier with our choice of dive shops. Charlie was our dive master all week and he was FANTASTIC! He is a very aware dive master. He dives very slow - takes the time to look... More
