Klaus rocks he's a Gruff individual and expect you to be on top of your game. Rest of the divers are amazing, funny and knowledgeable. Pierre was really helpful and knowledgeable of the dive site the whole team it's well worth the price of admission. Cenote Dives with Klaus was very interesting and a whole bucket of fun.

I stayed a week in Carmen and spent most of thar time diving with these guys, doing both a 3 day package and a rescue diver referral course. Absolutely fantastic experience - A small shop, that doesn't look as clean cut as some of the more commercial operators in town, but lovely people to dive with and customer care/kit condition...

We scheduled the three day dive package at playa/Cenotes/cozumel with Klaus and it was fantastic. All of the DM were a pleasure to dive with and our groups were small, 2-4 people max. Will definitely return here in the future

I arranged for three days of diving and what a great experience I had. I dove the reef off of Playa the first day which was great as an intro dive (been a few months since I dove last). Second day did the Cenotes. This was my first experience with cavern diving, this is a not to miss experience, really... More

I bought the Cenotes + Local Dive + Cozumel dive package from Playa Scuba. This place offers great package deals and all of the dive instructors I had were fun, professional, and informative. (Klaus, Sunny, Carolyn, and Pierre). Also, the scuba gear was in good working condition. I'm an open water PADI diver and was less experienced than some of... More

Our first dive started with an argument with the dive doctor that the dive shop had me call (I am the father). Some background first. I have had severe asthma all of my life up until eight years ago when we moved from Canada down to Mexico. I have been through every imaginable test from specialists trying to figure out... More

Great no thrills dive shop that knows how to make the experience enjoyable. We did the bull shark dive on day 1 and followed it up on day 2 with a cenote dive. The shark dive was great and they did a great job. The cenote dive was by far my favorite because it was my first time doing it.... More

Along with my adult son and daughter, I recently joined Klaus in diving the Chac Mool and Kukulkan cenotes, based on his recommendation. Check-in at the shop was quick and organized and to my surprise it was just the three of us that headed out with Klaus in his vehicle - essentially a bespoke dive! It was apparent from the... More

We went to 2 Cenotes, Tajma Ha and Chac mool. The dive master Sunil was very knowledgeable, patient and knew the caves well. I will definitely dive with these guys again.
