We did 2 days of diving and completed our Nitrox certifications too. The dive shop is in a neat location surrounded by shops and restaurants! Reef... More

Last time we came and used Phocea Dive. We loved them but this time our hotel was a little bit far away. We found this dive shop just across the street from our hotel so stopped by. Staff members were very kind and very organized. We decided to dive with them for one day - the Phocea has no opening,... More

I had been corresponding with Spyro (co-owner) well before our stay, so when we got to the dive center, there were no surprises and I knew exactly what to expect. We decide to do three days of different diving. Cenotes, PDC reef and Cozumel. The Cenotes were the highlights of our diving, but I won't discount the local reef, whilst... More

Tank Ha is a very well run diving business. Very friendly, very good equipment. They are so meticulous about safety and technique that each dive becomes a learning experience. That said, if you have taken many dives (let them know), Tank Ha's uber attention to safety overrides some more exotic locales where there might be larger and more unusual fish... More

My girlfriend and I choose Tank-Ha for our Divemaster course after a recommendation from a friend in Egypt. From the start we were made to feel really welcome and were involved with all aspects of the dive operation. Our instructor, Kim, had a lot of experience working with a resort based operator, but moved to Tank-Ha as there was a... More

Had opportunity to dive a couple of cenotes with Sophia from Tank Ha. If you are looking for a dive shop that compromises safety for convenience, this is NOT the shop for you. All staff were very knowledgeable and courteous and love to discuss their passion of diving. I've been diving since 1984 with a few dives under my belt... More

We came here quite short notice. We had some spare days and decided we wanted to get our PADI open water diver degree. No problem at all got it in three days (as normal). Very good teaching during the dives as well. (anticipate sea sickness please). Afterwards we went for a cenote dive (just beautiful) these are more expensive than... More

Matt and his staff were very accommodating for the varying weather issues we had to dive this week in playa deal carmen. We did a nice cenotes dive with Isabella, and she was very passionate about the cenotes, and gave a lot of information about the area. The center is right downtown in playa deal Carmen, but it was a... More

I was staying in a resort but got advised to go to Tank ha by someone on the beach. It was an amazing experience. Sites were selected based on what I already did or not. The seriousness of the center is extreme. Security is very important. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and the boat goes straight to Cozumel from Playa.... More

The staff here is the best I have experienced anywhere in the Carribean. I had several questions that I emailed the shop regarding whether or not my 2 daughters (one a Jr scuba diver and the other snorkels but doesen't dive) could accompany me on a dive. Carolina responded with a very thorough and professional email proposing a dive which... More
