I've dove before in Hawaii and Egypt but kept doing discovery dives. After meeting Moises and talking with him about going for a dive, we were very impressed, he made us feel comfortable enough to go for our certification with them at Buceando. The Captain of the boat, Jose, Armando and Moises were awesome from start to finish. Moises paired us up with Dive Master Armando. He was incredibly patient even though I was scared of the smallest things (mask clearing, ect) He basically said take your time and never rushed me. That is the temperament you could only hope for.

We have already booked our next trip to Mahahual and let the guys know we are coming back to dive with them multiple times!

I can't say enough good things about this crew! Thanks guys for an amazing experience!

Having taken "Discovery Dives" in Hawaii and Egypt during our 10 days in Mahahual we stopped by Buceando by chance one afternoon and chatted to the owner Moises who was extremely friendly, reassuring and extremely polite and NOT PUSHY! Having not dove for 7 years we took another discovery course/dive the following day under the watchful eye of Dive Master Armando - who was patient and extremely professional with us. Our discovery dive on the reef was amazing - so much so that we asked about doing it again the following day and it was then that Moises explained to us that yes of course we could but maybe in the future we should think about getting certified as we were essentially wasting money doing repeat discovery dives without becoming certified. Later that day we returned and casually asked what it would take to get certified and if we had enough time remaining on our trip to do so - the following day we started the course with daily sessions in the crystal clear shallow waters in front of the shop, again under the watchful eye of Armando. 2 intensive days of online studying, 3 dives and 1 test later we have our certification and we couldn't have been more thrilled and pleased with the professionalism and care that they entire crew took with us. From the Captain, Jose, Armando and Moises - it was an incredible experience and a great price and one that has certainly set both of us on a new path in life.

Coming to Mahahual for a day via the cruise ships or staying for several days and interested in Diving? - these guys are amazing and I can't thank them enough!

(Note: if the door is closed during the day and the boat is missing, stick around - they are on a dive and will be back shortly!)

A family-run shop owned by a Spanish couple, Buceando Mahahual is a pleasure to dive with and to get a myriad of information about where to stay, eat and have fun in Cozumel.

Thank you Moises, Monica, Lucio and Carlos's father for a good scuba time!

Buceando Mahahual is THE place to learn diving in Mexico. You will be immediately part of a family which shares its knowledge and enthusiasm about diving and which helps you in overcoming your hesitations. Special thanks to Ricardo, our amazing instruct who has made us fall in love with diving whilst feeling safe and conscious about what we were doing. Thanks Moises for having created this wonderful place - we will be back in the future for sure!!!
