Welcome to Doctor Dive Costa Maya!The best scuba diving club in Costa Maya (Mahahual)! Make no mistake, this is not a "paper club" like many others. We dive, and we dive a lot! We dive from boat and travel off spots together.A recent study revealed that this area is one of the place in the world where has more marine species. One of the great attractions of diving around Costa Maya is its abundant marine life. Climatic and sea conditions are particularly favorable to allow that diving activities are conducted safely and always fun, for 12 months a year.The particular characteristics of the coast and the underwater scenery of Costa Maya offer the possibility to make spectacular dives at altitudes between -15 and -60 meters, within a 10 minute boat planing.If you're not exploring carribean underwater, you're missing half the show.We have one simple philosophy, that is to teach and guide divers through close guidance and provide the opportunities to get out and dive!Our equipment and our qualified and experienced teachers offers a multitude of choices for diving in the spots of the coast for both beginners and experienced divers.We offer the full range of PADI courses, from Open Water to Dive Master: all our courses are individually tailored. We don't do big groups or mass courses like most other dive schools. Our enthusiasm and caring approach is to teach our passion by experienced PADI Dive Instructors. Our crew come from professional teaching and coaching backgrounds.

We spent the day at Costa Maya as a cruise stop and after enjoying exploring the little port area (touristy but fun!) we caught a tram to the beach for a few dollars each. I'd spoken with Doctor Dive previously to book a snorkel tour....More
