     Squalo Adventures is a friendly and professional dive...

     Squalo Adventures is a friendly and professional dive shop, located on beautiful Isla Mujeres. We offer scuba diving trips for beginners and experienced scuba divers, keeping groups small for a guaranteed personal service. We offer a full range of PADI courses, from 1 day experience programmes like the Discover Scuba Diving course, to Open Water Diver, Advance, Rescue, Divemaster courses and speciality courses too! We offer shallow dives close to the island with great visibility, calm conditions and little current, ideal for divers with less experience. Choose from several great dive sites, such as the amazing Underwater Museum (MUSA) and Cross of the Bay, to see how sculptures made of PH neutral concrete can develop over time to create a new flourishing marina habitat for local aquatic flora and fauna.

Andres Fernandez is a crook, a disgrace to Padi and a wreckless dive outfitter. On Sunday 9-11 we had arranged this outfit for 6 divers to go dive on Monday 9-12. Two of us are very advanced Florida divers (we spearfish regularly), 2 divers were certified but not very experienced, and the last two had never been before. After giving... More

My wife and I did our first whale shark tour with Squalo. We emailed with Andres prior to the trip and he answered all of our questions promptly. We did not take Andres' boat but he made sure we were escorted through the entire process and we had a spectacular experience - saw dozens of whale sharks and had many... More

We opted for a day of whale shark snorkeling and a day of diving, both amazing. Do note, that for the whale shark diving, it takes about an hour to get to the site of the sharks. You'll also have to wait to get in the water two at a time. This made for a very choppy wait and I... More

Great staff. They were as good for the advanced divers in our group as they were for the two doing discovery scuba. I would recommend them to anyone diving isle mujeres.

I had not dived for many years. These guys made me feel so safe & comfortable. Just a great day, highly recommended. Open late evening for easy booking on the Main Street. Seriously good set up.

I went on holiday to Isla Mujeras and came back with my PADI! I had no intention of diving but we met with a family who had all got their PADI Certification through Squalor Adventures and they spoke very highly of the dive master and owner Andres. 10 years ago I tried out for a PADI and only made it...

Andres, owner and divemaster and Jesus, the divemaster and all the staf are very knowledgeable and they know what they're doing. If you are traveling with young kids that are just learning to dive, they will be very helpful introducing them to... More

It was my first time diving with oxygen tank. We had demonstration in the shallow waters how to do the basics and then we went to the underwater museum and to the coral reef. Both dives were great, statues, all kinds of colorful fish, we saw barracuda and lobster also. Our guide was professional and friendly. Overall it was a... More
