DEDICATED & PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTORS

We love to teach! Safety is the #1 priority when scuba diving. Paul, our Director of Education & Training, has been diving since 1990 and an IDC Staff Instructor since 2017. He shares his passion and experience with all our divers and instructors! While ensuring all students learn proper techniques, he also makes sure everyone has a great time. Our team of instructors and DMs have taught THOUSANDS of divers ages 10 and up. Whether you are a newbie or Advanced Diver we are dedicated to helping you accomplish your goals!

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!

Michelle C

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.
