After my family insisted I get my SCUBA certification, I booked a course with DiveXplor. Fantastic experience. The lessons are very professional and focused on making sure you will have a safe dive. My kids and wife, already certified beforehand , also enjoyed the dives. We saw turtles, rays, eels, lobsters and many, many fish.

I don't really know where else to start other than Joshua, he made the day for us. He was simply FANTASTIC! Our trip took us to Akumal and a wonderful experience as Carlos and Joshua guided us across the turtles feeding and the reef. It was stunning to see these turtles so close, add to that all the beautiful fish... More

We had a great time with Josh on a private scuba dive in the Casa Cenote. My husband is an experienced diver but this was my first time. It was incredibly nerve wracking for me at first and Josh was so kind and helpful in getting me acclimated. I was able to have a successful and even enjoyable dive thanks... More

I met Joshua, the owner on a previous visit. I was very impressed and booked three tours with him- scuba diving the cenotes, a shark dive and a tour of Tulum. They were all great. Joshua knows the best areas to snorkel or dive. He was prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable. The shark dive was amazing. He is very flexible... More

Had a great time with Josh who took us on a private dive. Very nice guy and fun to be around. Went cave diving for the very first time and it was unreal. Josh then took us on a private tour through Tulum. Five stars. Couldn't have had a better experience. Highly recommend Josh and this experience.

The Viceroy introduced us to Joshua and we were very lucky.
