Two Tank Local Scuba Diving Trip
This enchanting two-tank scuba dive Costa Maya excursion takes places in one of the largest and most beautiful areas of the Northern Hemisphere. During your half day excursion in the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, you will get to see a variety of marine life including, but not limited to, sea turtles, eels, lobsters, stingrays, and nurse sharks. Enjoy coasting alongside these underwater inhabitants as they playfully swim around the magnificent coral gardens.
The Mesoamerican Reef spans 1,000 kilometers in the clear waters of the Caribbean. This vast body of water stretches from Honduras to Mexico. Reefs as old as 4 million years fill this massive area. Jaw-dropping backdrops are home to over 350 species of mollusks and 500 species of colorful fish. Costa Maya is one of the best-preserved areas in the Mesoamerican Reef, and as a result, it remains the healthiest and most vibrant reef you will find. Any given day of diving you are likely to share the reef area with turtles, moray eels, nurse sharks, rays, lobsters, barracudas, and groupers. Countless colorful fish such as angelfish, butterfly, parrot, wrasse, hogfish, damsel, surgeon, and blue tangs will excitedly swim in large schools, bouncing around their natural playground. Their Caribbean richness lights up the waters leaving you blissfully captivated.
Most sites do not present technical difficulties for the less experienced divers, and they are great to start the adventure of diving.

Mar Adentro is a no frills, but safe operation and the dive guide was very good. They do not provide bottled water or snacks. I rented BCD & Reg and the equipment was in great condition. The reef was not so great, though. Visability was very low and there was just not that much sea life. Very disappointed in the marine life but would highly recommend this dive shop.

The team was great and we had a really enjoyable dive in Costa Maya. The shop is located right on the beach so it was a quick walk to the boat... we saw lots of gorgeous fish on the dive - highly professional organization - highly recommended!!
Good gear. A couple of Great Wall dives in good vis. The team to good care of us.

WOW! This was the best experience we've ever had with a dive shop. Their equipment was the best we've had - very updated. The staff was super knowledgeable and took their time with us. We were fortunate enough to have a private dive with the instructor which happened to be the owner of the dive shop - Oscar was amazing!! The dive sites were incredible. Hands down, this was the best PADI dive shop we've experienced as far as customer service and professionalism. We will be back!
Had a lot of fun. There were only 3 divers on the trip, so we were able to shared our experience. Dive master was great and knowledgeable. A few people on the other diving trip said Costa Maya water is not the best spot to dive. However it turns out to be one of the best spot to dive.
