Scuba Fred is the best dive shop in Cancun. We have gone on a couple dives with him and it was fantastic. I enjoyed the dives and he is always a pleasure to talk to.

Met Fred at the Clipper Club after not quite trusting our hotel's dive shop who just loved to add multiple taxes and surcharges... Took a gamble and a bit of walk to the clipper club (who I thought was actually a different dive shop). Next day we went for a wreck and reef dive for both me and my partner's... More

I did a small bit of research before deciding on the dive shop I wanted to do my open water certification. There were other dive shops who seemed to offer a "better price" but I believe in getting what you pay for. My Spanish is sub par so I thought I would really enjoy learning without a huge language barrier.... More

Clemente took us on our dive. He is a very nice man that knows the ocean very well. There were five divers and him. He made sure we all had a good time and experience. He definitely cares about people and the undersea life as well. Thank you. Roger Columbus, Ohio

We used Scuba Fred's for myself and my daughter's checkout dives. Alfredo was our dive master and was very detailed in the reviews, testing, and pre-dive planning. Other outfits might charge more and have better facilities, but Scuba Fred's had a personal touch and accommodated my daughters request to do one of the dives at the underwater museum. Other dive...
