Pepe Urbino was recommended by a friend who had taken his entire family to Mexico to be certified as scuba divers. He left with everyone certified and a great family experience thanks to Pepe. My same friend and I with a few other couples decided to return to Mexico to do a dive trip to Cozumel and use Pepe to... More

I went diving with Pepe a year ago and had a great experience. I had not been in the water for awhile and I was diving with a friend who was just getting certified. Pepe was able to certify my friend while taking me along for some very interesting dives. Pepe is safe and conscientous, but he also has a... More

Signed up for a diving excursion with Pepe of Gran Scuba in Play del Carmen. I've only done a few dives and was a bit rusty, but Pepe did a great job of giving me refresher training and us feel very comfortable and safe with his years of expertise. He guided a small group of divers and the experience was... More

I am not a natural-born scuba diver. On day one, I had a tough time trusting the gear – just a couple feet under water in a swimming pool. But Pepe was patient, and he took me to the stunning caves at Dos Ojos for a second lesson – a great and necessary step between the pool and the ocean. By... More

This spring I had the opportunity to experience several wonderful Cenote dives with Pepe/Gran Scuba. His knowledge of local sites and history...combined with his expertise and prep as a divemaster made for a great day of diving - His pre-dive and briefing prepared me for a safe diving experience in unique conditions. A true test of his skill and leadership... More

Spent a long weekend in Playa in August 2010. Pepe knew what we wanted and delivered well beyond expectations. He magically managed to take us to popular cenotes before and after the tourist hours so we had them to ourselves and arranged a small boat to take us north of Isla de Mujeres to see an enormous whale shark aggregation...

Just spent the day with Pepe - He is so friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the local area. I don't scuba but I snorkle. If I were to Dive, he would be the only instructor I would trust to take me down. The reefs and cenotes in Mexico are some of the best in the world! Don't miss this one... More

We have over 40 dives with Pepe. First met 4 years ago at his hotel property. I have to say I was skeptical of all of mexico. We wanted to get PADI cert and the hotel put us in contact with Pepe. In his words "don't worry about a thing, I will take care of everything." That being said, HE... More

Last summer we where in Playa del Carmen for the third time, but this time was very different thanks to Pepe urbina, owner of Gran Suba. He was the best dive instructor and guide we have ever had, his sugestions where always amazing and the service is very personal. We always felt safe and had a blast in all the... More
