Diving in Playa del Carmen is great for everyone in the family, so you don’t have to be a certified diver to enjoy and explore this amazing coral reefs. Get ready to see spectacular marine life and exotic animals!
Playa del Carmen has a number of terrace reefs located directly in front of its beaches. Although just a stone’s throw from the shore, all sites are accessed by boats, to avoid swimming through boat traffic. The current is typically moving towards the north, but is significantly stronger at some sites, providing varying levels of difficulty.
Playa offers a wide variety of dive sites to visit. During the winter, we are visited by a population of female Bull Sharks. In addition to seeing the on the Bull Shark Dive, we can get lucky and see them on some of the deeper sites, such as the Mama Viña wreck or Tortugas reef. The shallow reefs of Moc Che or Jardines are great for training dives or taking things nice and slow and looking for small creatures hidden in the reef, or turtles feeding on top. There is a little something for everyone!
The boats leave the beach at 8:15 am or 12:45 pm and you will be back about 4 hours later. We usually take you out for the first dive after a 10-20 minute boat ride to the site. Then we will take a 30-60 minute relaxing surface interval with water and snacks. After that, we will go on the second (usually shallow) dive, and then returned to the beach in front of the dive shop.
