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.

As part of a recent cruise we had a stop in Costa Maya and wanted to get a day of diving in. We wanted a more private and cost-effective experience than what the cruise ship was offering for a dive excursion. I helped organize the day for 10 divers with Doctor Dive and they could not have been more helpful... More

I would like to thank Doctor Dive for these unforgettable days in Mahahual. Me and my friend decided to do OWD Refferal and AOWD diving courses with this diving center and it was the best decision we could have. We arrive a night before just to talk about some details and the schedule. The following day, they fit us into... More

Nico took us for a small group trip. It was an amazing experience. We saw hundreds of colorful fishes, murenes, etc. We even saw 2 turtles swimming a couple of meters from us. It lasted for a little more than an hour. It was great!

This was my second visit to Costa Maya while cruising the Caribbean. Last October I dived with the cruise line's excursion. It was enjoyable, but I was ambivalent about returning. This time, however, I met a fellow passenger who was going with Doctor Dive, an independent operator. It turned out to be well worth the effort to cancel my ship... More

If you will be in the Costa Maya area and plan on diving, this shop should be your first choice. The operation is organized and well-run, as is reflected by their quick responses to email enquiries. The rental equipment is quite new and in good condition, and the dive boats are perfect for the very short ride to the reef... More
