First, booking the trip was super easy. Octavio responds to emails promptly and provides all the information you will need for your visit. Our instructor was Clemente. He was very professional and easy going. I recommend purchasing the option of having digital pictures taken for you underwater-- Clemente followed us around and took many wonderful photos that we wouldn't have... More

This was my fifth time diving with Nautilus and was an absolute blast! I obtained my certification through Nautilus a few years ago and the crew still knows me by my name. This time I brought a friend with who has no experience diving or snorkeling. He did the discovery course with Clemente who was brilliant at going over the... More

Our group of six consisted of three first time divers and three very rusty, one time certified divers. Clemente was very knowledgable and his instruction gave confidence to even our most nervous crew members. We practiced in a pool with all of our gear (including wet suits for anyone who desired to wear one). He placed emphasis on controlling your... More

Can only comment on the Discover Scuba excursion: excellent! I'm a certified diver, have been on many dives, but will often take the Discover Scuba ("resort course" - 6 times!) when I travel with family or friends who have not done scuba before. No one has proven anywhere near as clear, as attentive or as patient as Clemente. If you... More

Excellent experience!! The shop is attached to the Cancun Clipper Club hotel (right behind the MexExtreme Restaurant), so they have use of the pool. Important! Our guide carefully went over the fundamentals of diving and equipment at their cabana and then got us into our gear, including wet suits, and into the pool where we could practice at our leisure...

Sherri was great in communicating with me throughout and answered all my questions in a timely manner. I dove with Clemente and he was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I was lucky enough to be the only diver on the boat and it truly felt like one-on-one experience. The only negative part was the fact we didn't see as much... More

I hadn't dive in about 6 years, and needless to say, I was a little anxious getting back into it. Thanks to Clem, my dive master, it just went beautifully. Clem came to pick us up at the hotel early in the morning to start our diving trip. It was only 4 people on that boat, and it really felt... More

I earned my two-day PADI Open Water certification with Sherri after completing the e-learning courses online. It was a personalized learning experience, and Sherri was incredibly patient and helpful. Nautilus is definitely the best quality diving center in Cancun to get certified at. We saw a shark, eagle rays, moray eels, turtles and giant schools of fish among unique coral... More

My boyfriend and I planned a dive trip to Cozumel with Nautilus on New Years Eve Day. My boyfriend had been diving with them for a few days prior to get his scuba license, so this trip to Cozumel was our first dive together ever. Our driver picked us up promptly at 6:30 in the morning from our hotel in... More
