Pedro... I grew up in Mexico and has loved the water from a very young age.. I also studied music and the Universidad. Underwater is like a musical to me... I decided to become and Instructor so I could take people into this beautiful place and watch them grow and learn.... I still play music and am able to find time for both! Pedro is a ton of fun, positive and insightful.. We are so happy to have him on our awesome team...

I’m Sebastian, I decided to try Scuba Diving 5 years ago.. The more time I spent underwater the more I knew I loved it and what an adventure it is. I knew I wanted to share my new found passion with others so I became an Instructor. ..What I love the most about being a dive instructor is seeing people’s smiles after the dives, it’s such a rewarding feeling! We love Sebastian for not only being an awesome Instructor but he is just sweet as pie! You will love him and we are so appreciative he chose us...

I’m Holly from Canada and started diving in Mexico in 2014, after deciding it was a bit silly to be a marine biologist who couldn’t dive! I absolutely fell in love with diving and the reef here, and continued all the way to Divemaster in the same year. I am a coral and macro lover and enjoying showing divers the amazing small stuff! We are very fortunate to have Holly join our team with her knowledge of the Sea & Marine life as a Marine Biologist and Dive Master she can bring our Scuba Customers a wealth of information...

With us you will never get the Ordinary Experience.. We pride ourselves on customer service, professional fun staff & limiting the people on our boats!

We had a fantastic outing with 8 girlfriends; 5 of us snorkeled and 3 of us Scuba dove. We had two guides for Snorkelers; Sebastian and Melanie, and one guide Marco, for the divers. Wilbert was the captain. Everyone was stellar. The best part for me was seeing two sea turtles. It was a bit rough seas and a few of us got sick, but no one would have traded that experience for anything. It was definitely worth it. Melanie also gave us a few tips for places to visit and vegetarian/vegan restaurants on the island. (She was so great!!)

Erin O

Sharon and her team make this an awesome experience. Small groups, attention to detail and safety and great communication make this the preeminent scuba group on Isla. MUSA and Manchones were great dives with lots of coral and fish to see. Love that we got to dive our tank, which is not always the case with dive shops. Sharon, Holly, Marco, Sebastian, Wilbert, and Pedro, we will be back!

We spent 3 days with Pedro. Pedro was calm, funny and informative, he was encouraging, firm when needed but he just wanted everyone to have fun. He was excellent. I've told my sister to ask for Pedro when she visits Mexico in May this year to do her Open water PADI. Everyone else on board was lovely too, the captain and the other dive instructors were very accomodating and friendly. Especially when I got sea sick! (Take Dramamine the night before). The onboard pineapple was so delicious.

Ebony C

Got in a few dives over Halloween weekend with Sharon and team. Great folks. Went out of their way to take care of us. When my dive buddy got hurt and was having some back trouble Marco and Sébastien took their time and helped her in and out of the boat. Sadly she got worse overnight and we had to cancel a couple dives with them. I definitely recommend this dive shop if you are heading to Isla Mujeres

Tim Hammar

Absolute best experience ever! Sharon and her team were amazing. I highly recommend doing any dives possible with them. We’re received our PADI open water diving certification with them. You start as strangers and leave as family!

Deanna Cohee

Completed 10 dives last week with the team. From the moment I walked into the dive shop I felt welcome and comfortable, everyone was super friendly. I completed dives with Marco, Pedro and Sebastian along with DM Mel. Had a fabulous week. Thank you for everything. I'll be returning!

D Gilbert

Amazing dive shop hidden away! I highly recommend for any diver the new owners are great and help you out any way possible! I was a little short to rent the gear and they were kind enough to allow me to rent it for the price I had! What a great place and great people. If you want to dive on isla mujeres use this location. Everyone is awesome and the dives were so well planned.

Thomas DeMelo

Walked into Pauls shop and was greeted immediately. He was attentive and always willing to help. Booked a dive and I have to say my wife came with to enjoy a day of snorkeling. Paul snorkeled with my wife whilst I was diving with the group. I had an amazing time and so did my wife. Sabastian and I believe her name is Marie both were amazing and led their dives with confidence and we saw some really cool stuff. Check them out their outmeal cookie was fire.

Ivan Giani

Everyone was incredibly friendly and patient. We had a great experience and felt comfortable the entire time. My husband felt uncomfortable doing the dive, so they were quick to accomodate him and got another instructor to take him snorkeling instead. I went on the dive and thought the musuem and reef were gorgeous. I highly recommend.
