What you'll do

I will meet you at the Marina Sotavento at km 4 of the hotel zone, I will show you the place to make you feel at home! You will test the equipment to make sure everything is fine and that you are comfortable! I will give you a small theoretical class where we will cover the basics of diving, you will sign a document and in case of being a minor your tutor will have to sign it too! We jump to the pool where we will develop and practice some skills necessary to have fun safely in the dives at sea! We will have a little rest before boarding. The next step is to get on one of 5 possible boats with the most experienced crew in Cancun! In the first dive you will meet MUSA an ideal conservation project to learn the importance of the reef and marine life, the second dive will be in the Manchones reef that is part of the Mesoamerican Barrier, the second largest in the world! You will see countless Caribbean species. At the end we will return to the marina where you can rinse, and continue your vacation! I recommend you bring a camera that can be submerged because you want to document everything!
In order for the experience to be as described, a second cash payment of $ 50 USD is required to cover the costs of space on the ship and taxes, entrance to the marine park and dock use. I will pay this to the ship's supplier

Gabriela was great. I was her only student that day and she can teach you in English ir Spanish. Very caring and a wonderful, safe experience.

Wonderful experience, Gabby is a great teacher and hostess for this activity! It was our first time Scuba diving and we felt well prepared and taken care of

This was such an awesome experience for my first time diving. Gabriela practiced with us in the pool first, and even though I was nervous to dive, when we got into the water I felt prepared and had no issues because of the practicing we had done. And the sights you see diving are just unbelievable. I’d highly recommend this experience. The only thing I’d share is be sure to bring a rain coat on the boat (which Gabriela will warn you to do anyway). It gets very wet and a little chilly on the ride out there.

It is a great experience. Gabriela explained everything with so much detail and with patience and shows a lot of excitement. The group of Max 4 is perfect. The places we saw are very pretty. Definitely a must!

Gabriela gave us some training first as everyone in our group was a beginner. That helped a lot during the dive. She is knowledge and friendly. Highly recommend for first time divers.

Gabriela is an excellent host! She practices great communication and makes you super comfortable with the scuba gear. It is very clear she is a professional but still has a friendly, warm personality. Due to weather and schedule reasons, I was unable to join two dives, but I was able to practice quite a bit. I am a complete newbie and was definitely thrilled for the opportunity. I cannot recommend this experience enough! I'm very sad not to have been able to attend 100%, but I will as soon as I can!
