Diving in Cancun and the surrounding area is an amazing experience for beginners, intermediate and expert divers.
Your Discover Scuba package includes a short theory lesson where our PADI or SDI instructor will explain the basic dive procedures and safety signals. Then it’s time to test out the gear in confined water, this could be in our specially designed dive pool at Aquaworld Marina, off the beach of Cozumel or Aquaworld is located within some Cancun and Riviera Maya hotels.
Once you feel comfortable we will take you on your first ever ocean dive to the Mexican Caribbean. Wherever you choose to dive you will be addicted as you experience the relaxing weightlessness of scuba and float gently beside vibrant reef fish, friendly turtles and brightly colored coral reef.
This certification allows you to dive with an instructor up to 12mts/40ft.
