I requested information from DiveAdvisor and from two dive shops in Panama on March 5. I received an email from DiveAdvisor within a short time stating the would be hearing from a concierge soon. Never heard from either shop. It is now March 10 and still waiting.....
WILLIAM WAS A SUPER INSTRUCTOR AND VERY AWARE OF OUR SAFETY WHILE AT THE SAME TIME SHOWED OUR GROUP MANY TERRIFIC UNDERWATER SIGHTS
We had an incredible experience at RIU ClubHotel in Ocho Rios with William! It was our first dive and he made the entire learning experience fun and exciting! We felt very safe and comfortable with him and he made sure that our first dive would be unforgettable! He made us laugh on the boat ride with his Italian accented jokes before we swam along an awesome coral reef with sting rays, lobsters, colorful fish and other wildlife. His passion for scuba diving was contagious and we will be pursuing our scuba certifications so that we can continue diving! If you are on the fence about trying scuba for the first time, go for it. You'll be glad you did it, especially if you have William as your instructor!
This was my second visit to Costa Maya while cruising the Caribbean. Last October I dived with the cruise line's excursion. It was enjoyable, but I was ambivalent about returning. This time, however, I met a fellow passenger who was going with Doctor Dive, an independent operator. It turned out to be well worth the effort to cancel my ship excursion in favour of Doctor Dive.
My new friend and I took a 10-minute taxi ride south of the cruise port to the DD shop, which looks out on cozy Yaya Beach. Our guide, Juan, set up our gear. With just two other divers there was plenty of room in their small boat. Juan, a 30-year-old from Spain, took us first to Steps, which is a nice site; not spectacular, but enjoyable nonetheless. Later, he revealed this was, in a sense, a check out dive. We must...
Kompetent, freundlich und Kunden orientiert.

Wir kommen wieder
Went diving with Scubacaribe at Riu ClubHotel Ocho Rios and would not recommend them or use them again. I turned up for a refresher dive and was told that they had me down for the day before. They were able to fit me in but it was annoying as I had been told that the day I booked and turned up for was the only available space and as it was my last day at the resort it meant I only got half a days diving. If they had told me that I could have booked for the day before then I would have done this and dived both days. I then booked to go on a dive in the afternoon and was told to be back at 14:00. I turned up at 13:50 but was told that the boat had left early at 13:30 because another customer wanted to leave then (never heard of a boat leaving half an hour early before everyone has arrived...
Excellent training, would highly recommend. Fantastic teacher, great experience, don't miss out. great time
Amazing trip! Highly recommend JP Marine and this route! For sure i will come back again and again,
Good service and organized dive shop. Too expensive for what you get. Usually you pay 50/60 $ and the boat trip is included but not here, you need to pay extra for the boat.
We were perfectly satisfied with the dive center, the dive staff, the boat & the crew. Everything was well organized, the people were friendly & helpful.
The only thing we didn't like was, that the water on the boat (though for free) was handed out in half-liter plastic bottles. There was always enough of it, but we'd recommend big water tanks and washable cups for the guests to reduce the waste. Especially, because the disposal and recycling of plastic is a known problem on maldives.
Otherwise, we'd give you definetly the full five stars!
Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.
Our reviews allow for users to meaningfully express their diving experience across a series of Dive Sites and a single Dive Shop.
We feel that reviews of various businesses and locations are some of the most valuable benefits that the internet has brought about. There are people that truly deliver a good service and take pride in the work they do and then there are those who are in for the short term profit. It is important to distinguish these businesses and reward the ones who deserve your money.
In the long run, we aim to become a central and objective body that centralizes user generated content and provides an easily usable database of information that will hopefully improve the quality of the industry as a whole and improve the user experience across the board.
