Every time we're on a cruise that visits Mahahual (Costa Maya), we dive with Catherine and Abel at Gypsea Divers. Today was fantastic. We hunted lionfish on two dives, and had almost as much fun on the surface interval and after diving as we did in the water. We were two of the four divers on the boat, and were... More

We dove with Gypsea Divers last July. Catherine was outstanding! She arranged a boat for me to dive at Banco Chincharro, what a great experience. I was traveling with my wife and 2 young girls. My oldest was certified but my youngest wasn't. Catherine ran her through some skills testing and took us out. She paid extra attention to my... More

My story started 2 months before arriving to Mahahual. I reached out to Gypsea divers in February 2017 by email. In my email I stated I would arrive April 1st with a group of 4 total, we wanted to dive chincharro bank. I received my response days later, Catherine apologized for the late response but did say it was possible.... More

Booked with them ahead of our cruise for a first time introduction to scuba. Catherine was so patient, gracious, funny and just plain awesome! It worked out that there was just two of us, my husband and myself that day so it was really one on one which was nice being our first time. From the minute we walked up... More

I privately booked a 2 tank dive ahead of our cruise with Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas. Catherine was a pleasure to work with in setting this up. Be aware that on the day of the dive they require payment in cash. Getting from the Costa Maya Port to the dive shop was easy - simply wind your way... More

This was my 10 and 12 year olds 2nd ocean dive and Catherine and Abel did a great job with them and my wife. We had some mask fogging on the first dive, and they did all they could to help us. It was my first time diving in Costa Maya and it was well worth it. It the shallow... More

Booked a 2 tank dive for 3 with no notice. Abel and Catherine were able to get us on a boat that day. Violet was our Divemaster and was very adept at showing us some fantastic sights on the reefs. Boat crew was very helpful with our gear and safety equipment. We saw Turtles, Lobster, tons of fish and even... More

Just got back from a week long Caribbean cruise onboard NCL Jade. My wife & I had purchased some scuba dive excursions through the cruise package itinerary but no dives were initially listed before our departure for Costa Maya Mexico. So we got online and found several dive shops for the port but Gypsea Divers website and all the positive... More

Our family was on a cruise and wanted to setup a HIGHLY COST EFFECTIVE dive/snorkel trip. We made plans with only a couple days notice and the dives shop worked with us and exceeded our expectations. The communications was prompt and accurate. The dive shop is at a cool location. We will be back! Gary Moxley

We had a wonderful snorkeling tour for two! Abel took us on a terrific guide to several reefs to ensure we got to see a large variety of fish and coral. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out many unique things under the sea! A+ day!!
