“Night Diving in Cozumel”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

The shop is very professional and trustworthy. My son did five dives with them and I did one night dive and their equipment was in good shape, their shop although small was clean and efficient. I was comfortable leaving my son in their capable hands.
Our night dive started off with dolphins on the surface, then once below we saw seahorse, cowfish, crab, moray eel (three different ones - one hugh), lots of fish schools - it was quite interesting being under the water at night. Ramon our guide was helpful.

“Super Fun”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

My friend and I got our certification at Phantom and it was awesome! We mostly dove with Ramon who is incredibly patient and knowledgable! All of the guides were very fun, safety oriented, and knew a lot about the wildlife in the reefs! I highly recommend Phantom Divers for a personalized dive experience!

“Fantastic Diving”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

The team here is great. The book process was a breeze and the staff was very friendly. Ramon the Dive master was great at pointing things out as we dived a wreck and along the reefs. And most importantly, he was very patient as I stopped frequently to take pictures.

The interval was good. The captain found a calm area and we spent time relaxing.

Post-dive: There is a locker room above the dive shop. The room contained a large area where you could wash your gear and hang up for drying.

Next time I'm in Playa, I would definitely dive this company again.

“Phnatom Divers are solid”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

I dove with guides Charlie in the Dos Ojos cenote and off Playa del Carmen with Ramon. Both guides were quite helpful and informative. On the Dos Ojos dives, I was with three other guys. But on the dives off Playa del Carmen, my wife and 13-year-old daughter dove with me and Ramon made sure everyone was comfortable, which was important since this was a drift dive with a fairly strong current. I would definitely dive with Phantom again.

“Very safe, professional operation”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

This is a professional operation. Everything is well-structured: they provide a detailed and thorough briefing. They have high safety standards and there was no danger with the deep dive. As it happens when trying to interact with animals in their natural settings, there are no guarantees. They do chum and usually have several bull sharks show up, in my dive a lone timid bull shark showed up and did not get as close as I would have liked.
