Questions & Answers

Hi!!! We are planning to dive with Scuba Cancun in June, since it's across the road from where we're staying and we don't plan to rent a car since the bus will take us anywhere we want to go. We go to Coz quite often and have been to the cenotes, so we just wanted to stay local and dive Cancun. Does Scuba Cancun have a schedule for dives and are there enough different dive sites for 6 days of 2 tank dives (we are going for 12 days). Also, are the dive boats a decent size with an actual dive platform instead of rolling over off the boat (even though it's really not a big deal). My biggest concern is the group of divers on the boat. Are there small groups (which we prefer) rather than a "cattle" operation and do they allow you decent bottom time (1 hour or so)? My husband and I are experienced divers and are great with our air consumption. Thanks so much for your help.

That makes total sense. Except for the one trip to cenotes, my trips have all left their shop using their boats and staff. If anything the staff has been overprotective, probably due to the high number of newbies. Rather... More
