We happened upon Mario (and his partner, Wanda) accidentally. My two sons and I decided to go SCUBA diving (their first time). We found them at a restaurant/bar called "Takila" on June 9. We were quoted a very fair price, and Mario quickly set about finding wetsuits for all three of us, so we would be comfortable and not have... More

Not our first time to Cozumel, but this was our fist time diving ever. We were a tad nervous but Mario helped us understand all the basics to enjoy a nice beginner 30ft dive. His english is good. Some things required a little thought to fill in gaps with the instruction, but he made sure we understood if we looked... More

In June this year it was my second time diving with Mario and again it was an amazing experience. Mario really enjoys what he does and this is key to deliver the best to his customers and friends. He took many nice pictures from your diving which were really worth to buy!

I was in Cozumel in June and made my second diving session with Mario. It was amazing! In the hotel where I was hosted, coincidentally I have met some people who return to Cozumel once a year for the last seven years to dive with Mario, who besides being an incredibly nice person, is very helpful and honest. He gave... More

We had three certified divers and three intro to scuba divers and I was very impressed with his teaching skills. Everyone had a great time.. His rental equipment consists of high quality Scubapro products, which... More

Mario took me on my first ever dive. It was great. It all went very well, no problem. Mario stayed right near me, checking on me and my equipment continually. We saw an eel and a ray along with many colorful fish. Mario took many pictures and some video of me, the coral and the wildlife. The price was very... More

We were not expecting to scuba on our visit to Cozumel. We met Mario outside of a yummy little snack bar as we were walking toward the pier. He told us about the scuba services he provides and we couldn't refuse. He and his assistant got us fitted with gear and after a short introduction we were in the water.... More

We have been diving with our friend Mario for the past 4 years. He has proven time and again to be a great dive guide. His english is supurb and his teach is clear and concise. If you want to get away from large groups and have some personal attention I would highly recommend him. While he does most of... More

I throughly enjoyed my diving experience with Ernesto. He is very familiar with the reefs and the wildlife. He is also very helpful and professional. I have been diving in Cozumel for 16 years, and I have to say the Ernesto is among the top dive masters on the island.
