What's included? The package includes 3 days of diving, 6 dives, park entrance/boat fees, transportation between the dive shop and the Cenotes, snacks, water, professional guide, and some fun!

There is a reason Taste of the Riviera Maya is our most popular dive package.  You get everything the area has to offer at an incredible price in just 3 days.  The package includes 2 dives in each: Cozumel Reefs, Playa del Carmen reefs, and the Chikin Ha Cenote.

The Playa del Carmen reef dives are a good place to start.   You can visit the Mama Viña wreck, Tortugas reef, or the shallow reefs of Moc Che or Jardines.  There is something for everyone in the area.  The boats leave at 8:15 am or 12:45 pm and you will be back about 4 hours later.

Diving in Cozumel is known as some of the best in the Caribbean.  The Marine Park and dives sites like Palancar Reef, Santa Rosa, and the C-53 Wreck are all spectacular.  The current on Cozumel is always strong so all of our dives here are drift dives so you don’t have to kick against the current.

We have 2 options for diving on Cozumel. The first is to take the direct dive boat that leaves from our beach in Playa del Carmen at 8:30 am and goes straight to the dive site in Cozumel.  For the second option, one of our dive instructors will meet you at 9:30 am and escort you onto the Playa del Carmen/Cozumel ferry. Once on Cozumel, you will all board the dive boat which is near the ferry terminal.  The direct boat will reduce your total trip time by about an hour, but dive boats in Mexico are small, and it can be a bumpy ride if it is windy.  If you are prone to sea sickness, we definitely recommend the ferry option.

Cenote Chikin Ha is a great place to get your first experience in the magical sinkholes that are in the Riviera Maya.  The are between Playa del Carmen and Tulum is full of holes in the ground, called Cenotes, that allow us to swim in the underground rivers.  The Chikin Ha Cenote has a large, half-moon shape with a large sloping ceiling and crystal clear water.  The cavern dive will take you through to Rainbow Cenote, where upon reaching a depth of 30ft/10m you will see an amazing halocline, where you can see the separation of fresh and salt water.  Always keep an eye towards the entrance for the spectacular light effects on sunny days.  We do not recommend the use of cameras (unless you are a pro) in cenotes because of the poor lighting and for safety reasons.

You can easily upgrade your Cenote dives to Dos Ojos or The Pit and Dos Ojos for a small fee that is definitely worth every penny!

    Lovely people, spectacular diving These guys were really great to us, I highly recommend doing dives with them if you\'re staying in Playa del Carmen, whatever your experience level. We did dives with Steve, Rodrigo, Vale and Hugo, and all were super easy to get along with, informative and ensured we were able to do all the stuff we wanted to, plus some awesome stuff we hadn\'t originally planned. Particular highlights were the Santa Rosa wall at Cozumel and \"The Pit\" Cenote, to pick out just a couple. We were so impressed with these guys that we continued to do dives with them even after moving on to Tulum. Our trip wouldn\'t have been the same without them!

    Blue Life has set the bar for dive shops. The quality of service is amazing! Our trip started with Andrea, who seems to be able to answer any question at any time of day, being extremely responsive and helpful. Arriving at the shop, we were greeted by Leo. I considered Leo the MVP of this all-star team. He helped with equipment, answered questions, and even went out of his way to escort others in my group to see a doctor. Some of our gear was temporarily lost by the airline, but he offered to deal with the airline to ensure that everything was delivered directly to the shop. Our first 2 days in the water was with Hugo for TDI Sidemount certification. You can tell this guy loves his job. Hugo is laid back and patient, but also very encouraging at the same time. Even though I was only able to do the Sidemount course, he was preparing me for more in-depth Cavern/ Cave courses that I would eventually take. I was never really interested in tech diving before, but Hugo has inspired me to go further. After completing the Sidemount course, we did the Taste of Riviera Maya with Steve for sites in Playa Del Carmen on the first day and Cozumel on the second day. Steve was great in explaining all the details of the dives up front, and knew just about every fish we would encounter. He executed his dive plan flawlessly. In Cozumel, we drifted for about 1.5 miles for our first dive and 2.5 miles for our second. The last day of TRM was cenotes El Pit and Dos Ojos with Daniel. Daniel was also very careful to explain the history and details of his sites. His excitement for diving the cenotes was infectious. He even spent a little time at the end to help me with my back fin technique, which I still can\'t do, but not from lack of effort on Daniel\'s part. Finally, our last day with Blue Life was to snorkel with Whale Sharks, and even though this excursion was outsourced to another group, they still exhibited the same level of quality, hospitality, and passion that Blue Life did. My time with Blue Life was a life changing experience, being able to do/ see things that I never thought I could. Everything is top notch. The guides did not just ask us to follow them and then point out things to look at, which is perfectly acceptable experience. But went above and beyond in that they are sincere about educating not just about the area and history, but always offering guidance on how to improve as a diver. They will not hesitate to spend a few extra days with you to get stuff right. Our Sidemount course with Hugo was scheduled for 2 days, but he was prepared to go an extra day if needed. The same was offered to my older brother during his Open Water course. Hospitality was 5 star at Blue Life. I hardly had to lift a finger, and all the food options they provided were great. I would not be exaggerating when I said that they all treated us like family. This is a very special shop and I can\'t wait to go back. Thank you again Blue Life!

    I dove with Blue Life 3 days: Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and cenote Dreamgate with TajmaHa; the experience was completely amazing, I enjoyed every single minute with them. Blue Life customer service is top notch. The guides (all the guides are instructors) are professional, love what they do, they are safe divers and really nice and fun people to dive and chat with. Blue Life has a personalized service, they love to have small groups, one day it was just me with the instructor and the other days we where 3 divers. I dove in Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Cozumel before with 2 or 3 different dive shops and also I dove in many other countries and can say Blue Life team and service is top notch. I will be back to my new favorite dive shop soon!!! Higly recommended. Cenote dive is a must!!!

    Definitively recommended . Master divers @bluelifediving combine the thrill of diving with total safety underwater and on surface absolutely professional. Beginners are treated with extra care and consideration . All beginners in our group (3 persons) are now highly motivated. After the first dives we all were ready to endeavor more demanding dives as of the cenotes, which were absolutely a brand new world discovered. Many thanks Valentina, Willy, Leo for making our dives safe, exciting, enjoyable and fun. Congratulations for your professionalism and charm well combined. Til next time hopefully soon.

    Superb Diving with a Great Team So, three months ago I was planning a trip to Mexico and wanted to get some diving in, and to include the Cenotes that I had heard so much about. After trawling the reviews on the net I came across Blue Life based almost on the beach in Playa del Carmen. I contacted them via email from the UK with a prompt and very professional and informative response from Andrea, so booked my slots. 3 days with 2 tanks per day, one local, another in Cozumel and the final in the Cenotes. The guides Misael & Vale (sorry if spelt these wrong) were nothing less than skilled professionals who love their jobs, the equipment, boats were all in good order and had six fantastic dives, Cozumel & Cenotes are truly outstanding, so good I think I will come back next year and will book again with Blue Life. Thank you so much for three memorable days Te veo pronto

    Recent taste of Riviera Maya My wife and I just came back from our vacation to Riviera Maya just few days ago. And just like last time, we decided to go on a diving with Blue Life this year. Last time, I got my open water certificate and this year, we went full 3 day taste of Riviera Maya. First two reef dives were great way to start diving. Leo was our guide, and us two and other couple went diving in a group. We were lucky to see two turtles and one big and one small moray eels. Not to mention various fishes and reefs. Leo did superb job on guiding and helping us on refreshing our diving skills. Second Cozumel dives were just beautiful as expected. Valentina was our guide, and we saw so many turtles, nursing sharks, giant stingray, giant lobster and crabs and most colorful reefs we ever saw. Now we feel very spoiled and not sure any other future diving would meet our expectation. Valentina pretty much took care of us from shop to Cozumel and back 100%. She also knew where to look for interesting marine life. Lastly, Hugo took us to Chikin-Ha for cenote diving. We did not expect the dive to be a cavern/cave diving where flash lights were essential. It was scary but very exciting experience. We dived from one opening to other through large underwater caves. We felt very safe with Hugo, and was very very interesting experience. We gotta thank all three awesome guides, Leo, Valentina and Hugo. They were very professional and kind. Not to mention, Andrea helped us with arrangement through countless emails. We do not know when, but when we go back to Riviera Maya, we will definitely go diving with Bluelife again.

    Diving in Blue Life We spent 3 days diving with Blue Life in Nov 2017. The entire team was awesome and the owner Frank is a really nice guy. Pepe was our dive master for most of that time and I can\'t say enough great stuff about him. They were very professional and provided a very memorable experience. We had such a great time that we are planning to go back much sooner than expected. This time we will spend much more time in the cenotes.

    Wonderful Dives with Blue Life I was visiting Playa Del Carmen for a week and wanted to do some diving. I contacted them via their website and response was very quick with most of the information I needed. I did 6 dives with them. 2 at Playa Del Carmen, 2 at a Cenote and 2 at Cozumel. The dives were very personal and the group was small, so a lot of personal attention was given. I rented equipment from them. The equipment was normal dive center quality, but I was told by the dive masters that diving equipment in Mexico can be very very expensive and thus most other dive shops have much older and used equipment then Blue Life. Coming from Asia, I am used to 3mm or Lycra wetsuits. Here they dive 5mm wetsuits and getting in and out of them can be painful, however, the water was cold and it is necessary. I you have your own gear, I would suggest at least bringing booties and fins as some of the dives requiring walking on rough ground to get to the water. On the dives, the must do must be a Cenote. It is a cave dive in fresh water. The visibility is amazing like no other, and should not be missed. Do note that as it s a cave, you suit up at the carpark, and carry full gear down to the cave entrance before descending into the waters. Here wearing booties/fins would be the best way to go. Else wear slippers and leave them at the cave entrance. I also liked Cozumel. It can be done by speedboat, or ferry to Cozumel then speedboat. Here the sea is blue and there is a carnival feel with all the cruise ships sailing by. The difference between ferry and speedboat is the speedboat leaves Playa direct to the dive site, but its long bumpy journey to get there and back. I chose the ferry. It was an enjoyable ride on a big boat with a band playing. At the Cozumel docks, you transfer to a speedboat that brings you to the dive site. It is a longer way to get to the dive, but I enjoyed the ferry and also the brief time in Cozumel after the dive (to wait for the ferry back to Playa). For the ferry option we left at about 930am to catch the 10am ferry, and came back by the 3am ferry, reaching the dive shop about 4pm. In summary = Blue Life - Professional, Friendly, Flexible, First Class Dive Masters, Reasonable Equipment, Reasonable Pricing, Small Groups - Cant go wrong with them Diving - 5mm Wet suits, great visibility, good range of dive experiences, Must do a cenote.

    Professional, Safe, and FUN! First time diving in this area and Blue Life made everything simply Awesome! Found them through TA reviews, and all the good stuff said is true. This is a group of organized, motivated dive professionals that really cares about giving divers the best possible experience. Did the 3-day Taste of Riviera Maya which was a day on the Playa reef, a day at Cozumel (Santa Rosa Wall, unbelievable!) both with Valentina and then the Dos Ojos Cenote with Pepe which was not only a fascinating Cavern dive but in the clearest water I\'ve ever seen or imagined. (Lots of stretches I could not actually see the water!) My wife is a free-diver, so they arranged a guide for her on the Cozumel and Cenote days, and she had an absolute blast with Dalai. Everything was arranged perfectly, from the pre-trip emails with Frank to help me select dives, to Yesika and Leo being in contact during our stay to figure which locations to dive on different days, as there was a bit of weather around and they were so great about assessing conditions to make sure we had good diving that day. Such reasonable rates for personalized dive plans with small groups, I think no more than 4 per dive master. On two of 3 dives, it was just me and the dive master, so this was a great time of year to dive. Valentina and Pepe were so thorough and safety-conscious in the pre-dive briefings, and once on the dive knew the best places to show the incredible variety of sealife on the reefs and the amazing formations in the Cenotes. I really felt everyone we met was down-to-earth and authentic, and focused on doing their best for us. These people love to dive, and love to show other divers just how incredible this area is, so their enthusiasm just shines brightly. Overall, my best diving experiences ever. (Even better than Kona, especially because of the variety of coral, sponges and fans and critters: huge lobsters and crabs, Eagle rays, BIG nurse shark, tons of various Morays, octopi, beautiful Shrimp, schools of Jacks, some Groupers, etc, etc) When we return to Playa, all I have to think about is finding a hotel closer to Blue Life, which should be easy: they\'re only a block from the beach!

    Excellent Crew, Amazing Experience My husband and I did the Taste of the Riviera package where we did a Playa del Carmen, Cenote, and Cozumel dives. All dives and dive masters were excellent. We saw 1000s of fish, an eagle ray, lobsters, barracudas, eels, and we even did the bull shark dive. If you are visiting in the winter months, I highly recommend the bull shark dive. It was an experience I will never forget. Our guide, Laslo made us feel comfortable and taught us a lot about the sharks that live there. Frank and Yesika were both so kind and I will definitely dive with their shop when I come back to Mexico.

    Wonderful scuba diving and great facility! My family had a great time scuba diving with Blue Life! Top notch facility, kind and patient instructors, and Frank (the owner) was great at communicating with me, starting with scheduling our open water course and providing us with great directions and instructions on what to bring, where to park, etc. Our assigned instructor, Leo, was great! Took the time to answer our questions, and told funny stories during our instruction. The dives themselves were great--a cenote, off the beach at Playa del Carmen, and Cozumel for the last day. We saw tons of sea life--barracudas, king crabs, turtles, moray eels, seahorses, and a GIANT eagle ray. Leo took the time to point out these animals to us, which really enhanced the experience. Everyone on the boat (captain, assistants, as well as the Blue Life instructors) was friendly, kind, and distracted us from our seasickness. A great experience--one we hope to repeat soon!

    Awesome experience Last year, my wife and I visited Riviera Maya. While we were there, we really wanted go for diving. Since Blue Life had superb reviews, I contacted and Fernanda helped me with arrangement. While were there, I decided to get my open water certificate, and while doing so my wife took the refresher course. Hugo took care of my wife and I as he was superb instructor with patience. He was also able to give us a shuttle service to rather far hotel that we were staying. We ended up going two ocean dives and one cenote dive. We were planned for three ocean dives, but due to severe weather, after waiting out a day Blue Life suggested and took us to a Cenote diving next day. Whole experience was superb and will definitely recommend to everyone. I know I am leaving a super late review as I was too busy with life. Me and my wife is planning to visit Riviera Maya next month and remembered that I forgot to post a promised review. If I can I will definitely contact Blue Life again. Only happy memories.

    Great sites and people Just finished 3 days of diving with my 13 yr old son. We did the Taste of Riviera Maya package which is well worth the money. The shop people and very good about getting back to you quickly and the dive instructors we had were great especially with my son who sometimes has trouble equalizing. Cozumel has great fast currents but it is a fun trip along the reef. Saw a large sea turtle and nurse shark during one of our dives at Cozumel. Today was the best as we dove two of the cenotes. Casa cenote was first and is a mix of fresh and salt water. Jardin of Eden was second. This was true fresh water and was colder but then we found the halocline where the salt water meets the fresh water. Not only is the salt water way warmer, it causes a crazy visualization in the water that is a must for every diver to experience. You only need to be open water certified to do these dives and you will go quite far into these caverns however natural light can always be found if you look for it. I highly recommend these sites! Our dive instructor, Andrea, took us to an unbelievably great taco stand after our cenote dives today which just made the trip better! If you can request Andrea, you won\'t be disappointed.

    Super friendly dive shop! My wife and I had a short few days January 2017 at the Mahekal Beach Resort in Playa del Carmen. We decided to book with Blue Life for cenote diving in the area and perhaps some ocean dives, too. My wife was less than excited about cenote diving as she had never done it and had plenty of anxiety. All the staff of Blue Life were extremely flexible, with dive sites and dates and were exceptional in explaining the available cenote dives with great detail and in a manner that was really calming for my wife. We ended up diving two separate days in la Casa and Chac-Mool/Kukulcan cenotes and had wonderful dives in both. We had two different guides each day (Remus and Leo) and both were patient, communicative, thorough, and safe - everything we value in professional dive guides. Our resort was really close to Blue Life dive shop, and we visited them a couple extra times to arrange ocean dives, too, over on Cozumel but the weather ended up rearranging those plans. However, Fernanda and Adinda and every other staff member present in the shop during our visits made us feel at home and really listened to us. We really rate Blue Life as one of the best dive shops we\'ve used anywhere, and we\'ll definitely book dives with them in the future!

My husband is an experienced diver and I am a relative newbie and they took us on dives that fit both of us. The highlight was diving with the bull sharks off Playa del Carmen, but the two dives we did in Akumal seeing the turtles were great as well. I highly recommend this company!

    Outstanding dive operation in Playa del Carmen My family of 6 just got back from 3 great days of diving with Blue Life. We dove at Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and a Cenote. Their personal attention and service was outstanding. Fernanda, Sarah and Alex were great. They each took great care to attend to our personal needs. They were also the best when it came to communications. Each of my email questions were answered within a few hours of submitting them. No other dive shop did that. I contacted over 15 dive shops with a long list of questions for each. Blue Life was clearly the winner in my research. Their results exceeded our expectations. The captains of each boat were also excellent and attended to our needs. We also want to express our deep thanks to Sarah for helping my wife get her ears to clear for diving. For many years, most of her attempts ended up returning to the boat because of ear pain just going down 1 foot. Sarah worked with her and my wife was able to complete her last 4 dives with no problem. Her level of excitement to dive was sky high ! I also found their pricing to be very competitive with the other dive shops in the area. Their levels of detail were second to none. Each night they contacted us to confirm the next day\'s schedule. Their shop is very close to the water andjust a few minute walk to the boat. We will surely use Blue Life the next time we return to Playa del Carmen. Thanks for a great week of diving.

    Great experience! Was originally planning on diving for two days during my week in mexico, but I ended up diving for 3 days, 6 dives in total which ends up being the \"taste of the mayan riviera\" package. If you\'ve never dove in the area I would definitely recommend it although they have packages to fit whatever your taste. I did 2 dives in cozumel, 2 in playa (including a bull shark dive!!!) And then 2 cenote dives at the pit and dos Ojos. All the dives were amazing. Dove with Hugo all 3 days and Fernanda joined us on the last day. Thoroughly enjoyed their professionalism and experience! Definitely would dive with blue life again!!!

    *Fantastic* Where do I start?? After having some problems with our original holiday to create and changing at the last minute I was a bit fed up as I had planned all our trips...I think it changed for the best as I took last minute deal to Mexico... Now I had no time to do any research of the place nor dive centres around where we were staying...so I used the valuable wifi around the pool when we arrived, in search for dive centres... I narrowed it down to two... Next day we were off in search for the dive centres, first port of call was Blue life, We were greeted by a lovely young lady called Fernanda. After speaking for a short time I was thinking, this is the place for me. We spoke about trips I would like to do with my family (2boys and wife), and asked for a package to be put together. I also found out it was whale shark season. :) Pen to paper, Fernanda was great, able to plan things around other trips we had going on...she put the icing on the cake for our holiday.... Blue life were not able to do the visit to the whale sharks themselves but after a few phone calls she had things sorted..fantastic.. First trip was the whale sharks...out on a speed boat to the feeding ground and had an amazing time, not for the faint hearted, it\'s all go and would recommend being strong healthy swimmers, don\'t get me wrong you could stay on the boat like my wife (non swimmer) and get some action...FAR BETTER IN THE WATER ;) Received an evening phone call from Blue life to see how the trip went...nice touch. Next was Dad and lads only day... We were picked up by the diving instructor Hugo...(top class man..what he does not know is not worth knowing..very knowledgeable)...off to the pool for a try dive, test kit and knowledge review. Kids were in safe hands, Hugo took it easy and spoke well to give my boys the much valuable information needed for there dives ahead. Perfect morning then had a spot of lunch. To the beach in the afternoon to meet the boat...headed out and all in the water. Hugo took his time all the way through the dive and helped out any little issues the boys had... Perfect first dive.. Dive two same again..Hugo showed the boys a million and one things in the water even showing them a few tricks as they were more comfortable this time in the water...dives were complete and headed home... Two boys said it was the best day they had by far and loved every minute of it, both asking when they could go out again..that\'s all they talked about, the boy\'s fell asleep early, nice easy night for me and the wife :) Day after was me to head out on my own with Hugo and a few other divers to Cozumel reef....well what can I say... Fantastic dives, lot to see, sharks, coral and some of the largest fish I\'ve seen another perfect day :) Fernanda also recommend me to dive the cenote\'s in the package which I took on advice....Hugo was to be my dive master and promised me something special and exciting.... By did he not...WOW, he took me to dreamgate\' cenote. This place was fantastic, great formations, it\'s a must \"give it ago\". Experience is needed for buoyancy control....I think I may of found my next adventure...HUGO YOUR THE MAN ;) (Google this place!!) Had a wonderful time, I was ready to stay a extra week... I would fully recommend Fernanda, Hugo and all the team at Blue Life, I\'ve dived in many parts of the world and these guys run a tight well organised ship! Everything was catered for, for all my family needs...I\'m returning back to Mexico next year and my diving will all be booked through Blue Life. Thanks for such a fantastic time, you guys helped make some fabulous memories. 5 STAR PLUS.....

    Absolutely Wonderful.. Now we know why Blue Life get so many 5 star rating. We did six days of diving reef, cenotes and sidemount training. Fernada even guided us on our 2 tank boat dive and spotted a \"Pea\" very young, tiny Trunk Fish. She was so happy and the mood was set for the rest of our time. We were totally pleased with all our guides and sidemount instruction. Thank you all again Fernada, Sara, Rimas and especially, patient instructor Suzy. We would highly recommend \"Blue Life\" for safe diving and great instruction.

    Awesome service. I did 4 dives with Blue Life in early June and had an amazing time. If you are an experienced diver and like personal service in small groups this is your dive shop. I live in Denver and don\'t get to dive as much as I would like so it\'s important that I select a knowledgeable and professional dive shop. Blue Life was spectacular and Hugo and Vale are great people and fun to dive with. I will be back and diving with Blue Life soon!!

    An amazing 3 days of diving with Blue Life in PDC/Cozumel!! My wife and I stayed 5 days in PDC and spent 3 days diving with Blue Life. I spoke with a few other shops (all highly rated on TA), but went with Fernanda at BL since she was great at communicating quickly and thoroughly via email. We did a wreck dive in PDC with Hugo the first day. He was awesome in making sure my wife was comfortable the entire time and guided her safely through the wreck. It was an incredible experience going through the multiple levels of the wreck. Our next two days were spent diving Cozumel with Valentina. She was amazing (always smiling even though it\'s an incredibly physically demanding job moving people and equipment to and from the island and guiding dives everyday) and went out of her way to make sure everyone was comfortable and safe the entire time. Vale even spotted the reclusive Splendid Toadfish and we were all able to catch a view of the little bearded guy! Fernanda, Hugo, and Vale definitely made our first dive trip to the area an unforgettable one. We dove the Santa Rosa wall and Palancar with BL and can\'t wait to continue exploring PDC/Cozumel with them in the future!

    Fun, Safe and Professional The Blue Life team are highly experienced and professional. It\'s important to them that their divers have a fun time in the cenotes, caves and ocean, while being safe, using the best equipment and being properly briefed. This dive operation is much more than those cookie cutter dive shops. At Blue Life you are important, and you really feel it when you dive with them.

    Excellent Dive Team! It had been 15 years since my wife and I went diving. We were understandably excited but a little nervous about it. Our first wonderful experience with Blue Life was in preparing for the trip. Fernanda and Sarah were extremely responsive and helpful with our questions in planning and booking our dives. Our first day diving was with Hugo just off Playa. He was awesome in preparing us and the first dives were slow, relaxing and enjoyable...just what we needed to regain our confidence. Day 2 at Cozumel was also a great day of diving. We traveled and dove with Hugo and Rimus. Both great guys and guides. On day 3 we went to Ponderosa and Tajma Ha Cenotes with Hugo. What an unforgettable experience that was. Otherworldly. Once again, Hugo was so patient and well prepared. He had solidly earned our trust by now, so we had no problem following him through the darkness of the amazing tunnels and caverns. I very highly recommend these great people!!

    What every dive shop should strive to be I booked my trip to Playa in less than a week. Fernanda and Sarah were great in helping me organize my dives and created a customized dive package for me that really worked out perfectly. But before I get into the individual dives, I knew Blue Life was the dive shop for me when they recommended that I should NOT dive the afternoon I got there. My flight arrived in the late morning and it would have cut things really close to make the afternoon boat but I wanted to get in as much diving as I could on this trip so I inquired about making the afternoon boat on that day. Blue Life recommended that I take the afternoon off because there was a good chance that I would miss the boat and I would be super tired from traveling. Well they were absolutely right and I am glad I listened to their advice. I would have made it on time if I went to the diveshop directly from the airport, but I was so tired after such an early morning flight that if I had gone diving I would have been miserable and it would have been a bit unsafe. This really showed me that Blue Life is more about safety and making sure their divers are enjoying themselves rather than making as much $$ as possible (which unfortunately many dive shops are more concerned with). The next day I did 3 dives in Cozumel with Rimas. On all three dives, it was just me, Rimas and one other diver. Rimas was an awesome dive guide. He was very thorough in his pre-dive briefing and it was clear that safety was #1. He also made sure I maximized my bottom-time. On my third dive, the other diver was a beginner and I was a bit nervous that he was going to blow through his air quickly. I think Rimas was thinking the same thing so he asked the first mate of the boat who was also a divemaster/instructor to dive with us. After the beginner diver went through his air rather quickly, Rimas ascended with him and I stayed down for a bit longer with the other dive guide. I don\'t know many dive shops that would have done this for one diver. The next day I went on 4 dives with Rimas in Playa. The 4 dives were great because it was just me and him. I love one on one dives and half of my dives with Blue Life were one on one. I felt like I was back in my open water course from all the personal attention. On my final day of diving I did 3 dives at two different Cenotes with Hugo. The first two tanks were at Dos Ojos. Hugo was great with his pre-dive briefing and was a great guide. It was my first time cavern diving but I felt completely safe. I did dive with 3 other divers who had just gotten their open-water but it wasn\'t as bad as I thought it was going to be. My last dive of the day and the last dive of my trip was at a different Cenote (Tajmaha) and this was my favorite dive of the entire trip. It helped that this was another one on one dive and our bottom time was much, much longer than my dives at Dos Ojos. Hugo also took me on a route that I think was the opposite direction of the other divers there so it felt like we were the only divers in that Cenote. I also liked that Hugo told me the history of the Cenotes and the current state as well. Some quick stats: 10 dives total 5 one-on-one dives Average dive group size: 1.9 divers/guide (which is insanely low) Rimas and Hugo were incredible guides and really good people too. I met some of the other dive shop people and they were all really nice and I\'m sure are great guides/instructors. But what really stands out is that you can tell they really love what they do and love diving, and that attitude makes it a better experience for the divers. I will definitely be back in Playa to dive with Blue Life again as there are many more Cenotes that I would like to dive. *Don\'t forget to tip your Dive Guide and Crew! The generally accepted practice is $5-10 PER TANK. Tipping is obviously your choice but it\'s kind of a D move not to.

    World Class Diving With World Class staff! If you go diving in Playa Del Carmen this is the company you should use, proffesional, flexible and fantastic team of enthusiastic divers that makes every day an experience. Prices are competetive, facilities are great and safety is on the agenda. I highly reccomend a few cenote dives and thank you Fernanda, Sara, Hugo and Remus. I will see you again at some stage for shark season:)

    My Happy Blue Adventures At the end of March, I was back in Playa and I decided to try this dive centre out due to location and Tripadvisor reviews and I was not disappointed. This is a professional and friendly dive shop walking distance from the ocean. My DM Valentina (ocean) and Simon (cenotes) were fantastic (!!!) and the Office Manager Fernanda promptly responded to all my inquiries. I even added a last minute snorkel trip with my boyfriend (he doesn\'t dive) to the cenotes and had a great time with our driver/guide Suzy. I will definitely use them again when I go back to Playa del Carmen.

    Super 3 days Just returned from 3 days diving with my 14 year old son and the crew at Blue Life. They did an outstanding job, and the 3 days were varied (Playa, Cozumel and Cenotes) and terrific fun. All the guides were super attentive and focused on our enjoyment, and were enthusiastic about both the diving and each of the sites. I want to make special mention of Hugo and Sarah who were were both excellent instructors and a lot of fun to be with and Fernanda who runs the office with such a great attitude. Thanks guys!

    Very nice diving with the Blue Life team My wife and I fully enjoyed our Taste of the Riviera Maya dive package we purchased through Blue Life dive shop in Playa del Carmen. Our first dive was cancelled due to poor weather conditions at Cozumel, but Hugo our Divemaster was nice enough to take us to Cenote Dos Ojos for our cavern dive that day instead. We had two newer divers with us and I had some initial buoyancy issues, but Hugo was a great help. We thoroughly enjoyed the Bat Cave and the Barbie Line. Our second dive we made it out to Cozumel and had another couple of great dives to the Santa Rosa Wall and the Paradise Reef with Valentina where we some some beautiful reefs and a multitude of underwater sea life including a beautiful ray. Our last dives were off Playa del Carmen with Hugo and were just as fantastic as the ones off Cozumel! I would not hesitate to recommend Blue Life to anyone looking to have a safe and wonderful dive trip. The entire experience with Sarah helping through timely answered emails and Fernanda assisting with logistics once in town, it was very pleasurable and easy. When we come back to the Playa del Carmen area, we will definitely look up Blue Life! - Ken & Rebecca Rice

    Spectacular Service, Excellent Diving I had the pleasure of diving with the great people at Blue Life and I couldn\'t be happier. While there\'s an abundance of dive operators in Playa I can\'t imagine that many can match the level of personalized care and attention that I experienced with Blue Life. The entire staff seemed fully engaged and mainly interested in my safety and ensuring the dives were tailored to my skill level and my interests. I did a six dive package. Each was unique and fun but the cenotes are by far the most unusual environment I\'ve been in to date. A surreal and incredible experience. But regardless of the location, the Blue Life team made sure that my needs were met. One of my dives even included lunch, a nice touch. At the end of the day, they rinsed and stored my gear so it was ready for the next day of diving. I am 100% satisfied with the service I received and I can recommend them to anyone looking for personalized service and diving with professionals who are interested in ensuring you have a good experience.

    Diving was spectacular I did my open-dive sessions for certification with Sarah at Blue Life and the experience was excellent. Sarah is a true professional who puts the client\'s interest/skills first. We did two dives in Playa, two off of Cozumel and two in nearby cenotes, and each was a great experience. Blue Life made it so easy by providing all the equipment, snacks and great sandwiches. I also enjoyed spending time with the others at Blue Life (Fernanda, Rimas, Frank, etc.) who were very familiar with the area and recommended good places to go. It was great fun to be with such nice people.

    Amazing diving and snorkeling!!! We are 60-somethings who have just returned from a 2 1/2 week exploration of the Yucatan. We are so happy that Blue Life was a part of that adventure! The staff is professional, personable, smart, safety conscious, and fun! Sarah, Rimas, Fernanda, Simon, Hugo, and Frank are incredibly good at what they do. We felt well cared for every step of the way. My husband completed his open dive portion of his SCUBA certification with Sarah, who is a great teacher. He had a chance to dive off the coast of Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, and also did two cenote dives. I snorkeled with Rimas, first at Dos Ojos (who knew I could be encouraged to enter a bat cave??), then at Casa Cenote and then at Grand Cenote. All three were different and amazing in their own ways. Swimming in an aquarium is delightful, and Grand Cenote has turtles!! We both always felt safe and well instructed. All gear was provided (wet suits are good in cenotes). We had our own prescription masks, but Blue Life provided eveything else ... even towels. All we needed was a change of clothes, some water shoes, and an underwater camera. They even brought along yummy sandwiches and fruit as well as water. After our snorkel at Dos Ojos we had a delicious lunch at Juanita\'s, where we enjoyed some yummy tacos and a sweet potato/ honey amuse bouche. I can\'t say enough about our time with the Blue Lifers ... if you are planning to dive or snorkel in the Yucatan, don\'t look anywhere else!

    Amazing diving experience with Blue Life Diving Let me start by saying that Blue Life Diving far exceeded my expectations! My wife and I were staying the Playa del Carmen area for a week vacation and we wanted to do some diving (we\'re both certified divers). We were hoping to dive both on the Mayan side and over at Cozumel. Blue Life had a package that accommodated us being able to do both - perfect! We booked the Ocean Blue package. Fernanda worked her magic making all the arrangements including arranging our transportation for us (it was cheaper through Blue Life than through our hotel). Fernanda did an absolutely superb job keeping us informed where we were going and on which day. She even accommodated my request to sneak in a couple of cenotes dives (which were amazing) above the standard diving package. Our dive masters (we had 3 different dive masters) were absolutely fantastic. Fernanda\'s logistics and customer service was amazing. Our overall experience diving with Blue Life couldn\'t have been better. Personally, I would not hesitant to recommend them to anyone (and in fact, I have recommended them to friends already). Next time I\'m vacationing in the Mayan area, I WILL be diving with Blue Life again! Thanks again Blue Life! I can\'t wait for the next time.

    Great dive shop, super friendly staff! My husband and I went to Playa del Carmen for New Year holidays, and our goal was to dive as much as possible. We picked Blue Life because of its good review here on TripAdvisor and we weren\'t disappointed! The staff and instructors were super friendly,and did everything they could to arrange the dives as we wished. We dove two days in Cozumel, one in Playa del Carmen, including the bull shark dive, and Fernanda even arranged three dives at the Cenotes on January 1st, when most dive shops are closed. We highly recommend Blue Life! We had a wonderful experience and are looking forward to diving with them again!

Each day he was prepared with all our equipment and ensured that everything was ready to go without any delay. Guiding groups is no easy task and he was pleasant throughout. He is an experienced diver and I felt comfortable knowing I was in good hands. A great experience.

    Excellent team in an incredible location... I was a solo traveller to Playa in Nov 15 staying at the Riu Yucatan, looking to move from being a just-trained Open Water Diver to being a Rescue Diver. Over the space of the two weeks, Sarah successfully took me through the Advanced Open Water, Nitrox, Emergency First Responder and Rescue Diver courses, making me a much better Diver along the way! As I hadn\'t dived since my Open Water almost a year previously, we started with some easier shallow dives (albeit on some rather rough seas... as it was my first ocean dive I quickly learn that little boats and rough seas make for a rather seasick diver!). It was a short 100m walk from the Shop to the boat pickup, although I still struggle to carry two tanks... The training aspects took place in various areas including the Playa Reefs, a nearby cenote for the confined aspects, and Akumal (with a rather large turtle being spotted resting on the reef!). The EFR course took place at the shop and was a useful exercise in preparing for if something goes wrong whilst on your Dives. The Rescue course was certainly different to the other course, with the focus being on both looking after yourself whilst Diving, being able to identify problems before they happen both with yourself and other divers, and being able to help when things go wrong. The most important part of these courses for me was that it was one-to-one throughout, giving the best chance of picking everything up and going over the more challenging aspects a couple of times. After completing the courses, I signed up to a three-day dive package including two dives at Dos Ojos (a Cenote close to Tulum), two dives over at Cozumel, and two dives on the Playa Reefs. The Dos Ojos dives led by Hugo, were incredible to see and thanks to those dives, I intend to return next year to undertake the Cavern diving course (not sure if Cave diving is really for me just yet!). a 10 minute drive from the main road through the jungle before finally entering the clearing and finding the caven entrance. The two dives took different routes with the first leading to the bat cave. The next two dives at Cozumel were the toughest, purely because of the need to be at the ferry port by 7.30am - the rest of the day was a breeze! Sarah met me at the port and we took the ferry over (about 45min and a pretty smooth ride - albeit with pretty cheesy adverts throughout). Upon arriving, we took a quick taxi over to the marina and were met by our boat for the day and the other divers. The Reefs at Cozumel are on a whole different level to those at Playa, with much larger formations and arches to swim under and around. A deep dive against the wall with the deep blue on one side and the coral formations on the other is a great experience! The final Dives were back on the Playa Reefs with Dive one being on the wreck! This was my first wreck dive and whilst the strong current made it a serious workout, it was a great wreck to see! Dive two... Throughout the trip I\'d been pestering Sarah because I wanted to see the Bull Sharks, however as my trip was quite early in the month, they hadn\'t yet arrived. As a last minute change of plan, for the final dive of my trip, we\'d be looking to see if they\'d arrived yet! Whilst most of the dive sites are quite far out, the sharks like to congregate surprisingly close to the hotel complexes... We descended down and waited a few minutes. At first, I thought we were going to be let down, but then shadows in the distance were spotted (and the Jaws theme started playing in my head). We stayed in a tight group as the 7/8 large Bull Sharks approached and started circling us. 30 minutes later it was time to ascend after a Dive experience that will stay with me forever! And most importantly, I kept all limbs. Sarah was an excellent instructor and somehow put up with all of my questions (seriously... a LOT of questions) throughout! I\'ll definitely be returning next year to Cavern dive, and hopefully look to start my Dive Master after that.

    5 star service My daughter and I were incredibly fortunate to visit Playa Del Carmen and dive with Hugo September 15-18th. We were treated like royalty as we dove the Playa reef, Cozumel and the epic Dos Ojos Cenote. The outfit they teamed up with on Cozumel Blue Magic Scuba had a fast little dive boat that flew by the others and put us on the spot first. If ever I wished I had a movie of a dive it was drifting the crystal clear waters of that spectacular wall. I spotted a lifetime giant lobster duo of at least 20 pounds each saw a huge nurse shark rolling in the sand and never ending schools of thousands of beautiful fish. Dos Ojos was a dive I also highly recommend although I did have a little trepidation to begin with and even though the jungle is hot and humid be sure and bring that 5 mil full suit because after 2 nice long dives in the ethereal gin clear waters I was a little chilly in just a shorty and hood. I am forever grateful that Hugo and Simon helped haul our gear down I don\'t think I could have done it other wise. To top it off we got our Nitrox cert thanks to Sarah and Hugo and all the other people I\'m sure are helping behind the scenes! Thanks again, we\'ll be back!

    Great dives with great guys! Just got back from a two week trip in Playa and Tulum with a group of friends. I booked the 3 days package which included a day at Cozumel, playa and a the Cenotes. (Ended up booking another two days later on as well!) Really good if you want to enjoy an Ocean dive and also try out something different with the cavern diving at the cenotes. Frank and his team are all super friendly and make sure you have a fun and relaxing time diving!! All really experienced and as a fairly inexperienced diver I felt like a learnt a lot from diving with them! I had the pleasure of diving with Josiah and Raphael who were both really chilled out and friendly and made sure I was looked after! They\'ve also for a few stories to tell to keep you entertained on the boat ride out to the site...... Super easy to book it all as well and payment can be done via PayPal which saves you having to draw out money or use your card. Would defo recommend Blue Life for all levels of divers! Cassandra.

    Great Experience!! With over 100 dive operaters in Playa, it\'s tough to choose. However, I would definitely recommend Blue Life. I was staying in Playa for 2 months and wanted to get back into diving. It had been over 5 years since I last dived. I had contacted another competing outfit first, but their follow up was poor. In contrast, Sarah at Blue Life was fantastic about communicating and following up throughout the 3 dive outings I did with them (i.e. I did their 3 dive package .. Playa reef dive, Cozumel drift dive, and Cenote dive at Dos Ojos which is a great offering). I did a morning refresher at a training pool with Hugo and then an afternoon Playa reef dive. A couple of weeks later (Blue Life was great about being flexible about scheduling) I did a fantastic Cenote dive (my first) at Dos Ojos on Saturday, and then a spectacular drift cliff dive off Cozumel. For two of 3 dives, it was just Hugo and myself, and the dive off Cozumel was myself and 3 other divers. On all 3 days of diving Blue Life was courteous, on-time, great about communicating and following up, professional and made sure the outings were fun experiences. In addition to the 3 dives, I also go my Nitrox certification with Blue Life. I would have no problem recommending them to anyone (new divers or old) who want a great diving experience in the Playa del Carmen area.

    Excellent diving - local ocean, Cozumel and cenotes We had five days of wonderful diving with Blue Life - two days on the local Playa sites, two days on Cozumel via the ferry and a day at cenotes. We booked with Frank online and coordinated via both email and telephone. Frank has local and US phone numbers so he makes communications really easy - and he\'s almost instantaneous in responding to questions. It was kind of funny that we never actually met Frank in person during our visit, because he had gone to Mexico City to get a new vehicle for the business. However, he had everything so well organized that we didn\'t miss a beat. Josiah was our DM on the four ocean dive days. We met on our first day, set up our gear and didn\'t need to mess with it until our last dive. He took car of washing everything and hanging gear to dry. Throughout the dives, Josiah allowed us to dive at our own pace and spend as much time as we wanted checking out things we found and taking photos. He pointed out stuff he found, but he totally let us dive our own profiles and to our capabilities. We didn\'t surface until we needed to. It was great diving with Josiah. Rafael (aka Frenchie) took us diving at The Pit and Tajma Ha. We had two great dives and we loved experiencing Rafael\'s love of cenote and cave diving. We\'ve been diving with several other shops in the Playa area and Blue Life is the best we\'ve seen. We highly recommend them.

    Extremely dedicated dive team I don\'t even know where to begin. I contacted Bluelife prior to arriving in Playa Del Carmen. Fank who answered took the time to explain the type of diving available in the area and answered my questions. He suggested the two most interesting Cenotes to dive and advised me to send a request via email to Sarah. Sarah responded promptly to my requests and booked me for two days, one for two cenotes and the other for two tank ocean dives. First day I dove with William who was very helpful with location information and suggested to head out to see Bull sharks. We had wonderful dive with bull sharks which have not let the area yet. Second day was spent diving Cenotes with Hugo who is very knowledgeable and patient. I highly highly recommend this dive operation for anyone who wats to throughly enjoy diving in Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.

    Great diving with Hugo I am a beginner diver and do not know much about diving in Mexico but my three days with Blue Life on Taste Riviera Maya package were a total success. I dived with Hugo all three times and loved every minute under the water. Hugo was helpful but not stressful ibstructor. He really took us llaces where you can see sealife and enjoy the underwater world. The cenotes (The Pit and Dos Ojos) are a MUST SEE.

    Accomodating, Safe & Personalized Attention! Explore the Cenote! The staff at this dive operation were responsive, thorough and professional which made me comfortable booking our first Mexican dives through this shop. We arranged transportation through the shop and our instructors came to pick us up right on time at our hotel, which we appreciated. I recommend this if possible since it cost about the same as a taxi and had the added benefit of ensuring you are on time, arriving with the instructor. I rented my equipment, and I was happy with the condition of everything. I was impressed that they took the time to bundle my gear according to the measurements I submitted through the online form. The instructor arrived with everything neatly bundled. The gear was high quality and worked perfectly for me. Our first dive was open water. Our instructor Hugo was very present, ensuring we had what we needed and were comfortable. The crew on the boat helped with equipment and handed us fresh water when we surfaced. The open water reef in Playa Del Carmen was fine and we did see an octopus and some rays, but I wish I had spent the extra money and requested a dive to Cozumel, which I expect may have been a little more exciting or vibrant. Our second dive was at the Dos Ojos Cenote. Amazing! Because it is a bit of a drive (almost to Tulum) we spent a lot of time with Wiliam, who was an excellent host. The entire day was exceptional and just really brought our trip to the next level. The area surrounding Dos Ojos has a nice community built with a few small places to get lunch or buy small souvenirs. For a first time cenote dive, this worked out very well. Photos of this destination are nice, but the location is stunning in person. If we are able to return we would try to arrange another dive through this shop with Wiliam and explore the other cenotes. Overall, I highly recommend booking dives through this shop. I was on the fence about the caven initially, but if you are a comfortable diver go with the cenote dive, it was incredible!

    Great dives I had the pleasure of diving with Blue Life, and divemaster Wilian, for 3 days while I was in Playa. I opted for the Maya Riviera package -- the first day we dove at Cenote Dos Ojos. It included 2 tanks in the cenote for about a 45-50 minute dive each. This is Wilian\'s specialty, caves and caverns (incl centoes), so it was good to have him as my guide. The cenotes were crystal clear with spectacular stalagmites and columns. Bats, too. The second day we crossed to Cozumel for 2 more excellent dives, the 2nd one at a wreck site. Only thing that could have made it better would be to take a dive shop boat straight from PdC. The third day was off the beach at Playa. Again, would have been better if Blue Life had their own boat, but the diving was good (not nearly as good as Cozumel), including finding 5 or 6 bull sharks at 80 feet, and a fish-heavy reef on the 2nd dive, and Wilian encouraged best performance from me. It was good to dive with a small operation, with a highly experienced -- and what turned out to be my personal -- divemaster (this is NOT guaranteed, but glad that was my experience!).

Frank\'s follow-through, his professionalism, his enthusiasm and all that we encountered while in Playa Del Carmen during what is the busiest time of the year just made our dive experiences some of the most enjoyable times for all three of us-- my husband, my 18-year-old stepdaughter and myself.

    Personal Touch I contacted Frank before we left the UK about diving with Blue life after reading Tripadvisor reviews, his reply was prompt and informative and I contacted him again a couple of days after arriving in resort to organise my diving. Frank was in the USA but still took the trouble to phone me to say Willian would organise everything which he did. I would like to mention Monica for the confidence boosting dives, Pancho for possibly the most beautiful dives I have ever done and Willian for cenotes diving and my 1st exciting wreck dive and his total care. Pick up was always on time and their equipment is excellente! Being an older lady I was thinking that perhaps this would be my last year diving, but I had such a good time I cannot wait to dive again. Many thanks for a great experience guys.

    Again, great diving experience with Blue Life and is staff That was my second time diving with Blue Life and still think that is the best team that you can dive with. You can see and feel that they love what they\'re doing and do everything for you to have the best diving experience in Playa del Carmen. Easy to communicate with them and answer really quick. Need a course or any tip to be a better diver, just ask them and they will do everything to give you the best. Experienced, smiling and generous staff. I would definitely recommend Bleu Life for everybody who\'s going diving in Playa del Carmen. Thanks again for everything!!!

    Fantastic! Everything was smooth, well communicated, well organized, and a custom created experience! Price was fair and competitive and Blue Life really took the time to listen to what we were wanting to see and do, and came through in style!

    Great experience with Bluelife team / Wilian our divemaster Spent the week diving with Wilian in the cenotes and the ocean - we had an absolute blast! Karla and Frank organised everything before arrival and kept checking on us throughout the week. They advised us on hotels before the trip and adapted our diving schedule when we caught the cenotes bug, culminating with the pit and dos ojos on our last day. Wilian is a great divemaster, taking us trough the nitrox course on day 2 then showing us his passion for exploration in the cenotes for the rest of the week.

    Wow!!!!awesome dives, nice people, memories for a lifetime. Top marks. Recommended to all. We (gf & I ) did 8 dives with the team from Bluelife and had such a good time we are planning the next trip. There is a video on YouTube (search: the pit July 2014) to get an idea of the dive at the Cenotes. Thanks Scott.

    Excellent service, great experience This is a top notch dive shop. Frank is on top of communication, and he\'s the guy at the helm of the shop. Frank responded to my inquiry to his website quickly and personally. The other two dive shops did not respond at all to my e-mails, while Frank called me, took time to answer my questions, and worked with my schedule. When some timing issues came up for me, Frank was gracious to work around them and schedule me at a time that worked for me. And due to an illness, I had to cancel two dives, which Frank reached out personally to make sure we were OK, to offer help, and promptly took care of the deposit that I had placed. Absolutely top notch service. Frank sets the bar VERY high, I will absolutely be diving here again next time I come back.

    Great company to dive with Blue Life was one of a few companies we tried while in Playa Del Carmen, and I wish we had tried them first. In a region heavy on profiteering, Blue Life\'s focus on Service and professionalism was refreshing and very appreciated. If there is any disparity in price between them and other companies (and there wasn\'t that I noticed), they are worth every cent

    Very Knowledgeable & Professional The guides at Blue Live have amazing technical diving skills and are fun to spend surface time with, also. When I come back to the area, I look forward to using their services again. They\'re very friendly and professional. Their pricing is comparable, but the quality of service they provide makes the value very high!

    Experience of a Lifetime! If you are already a diver and haven\'t experienced the Playa/Cozumel/Tulum area of Mexico, you need to do it soon. If you are not certified, but have been thinking about it, what are you waiting for!? We recently returned from our trip, and can\'t wait to get back to one of the best diving areas in the world!!! Blue Life made our experience even more memorable by providing first class service and professionalism. Both Frank and Karla are English speaking, as well as our DM Pete, which made arrangements that much easier. Pete was exceptional in his services as well. He was a wealth of information, and showed much skill and concern for everyone\'s happiness and safety. Both me and my wife highly recommend Blue Life if you are looking to add to your diving bucket list, or to get the proper training in a world class environment.

    Discover Scuba course and Refresher/ Fun Dives We dove with Blue Life as 3 first time divers and an out of water DMT. Frank insured to schedule dive locations that would interest all of us, despite the vast array of skill levels. Absolutely one of the best dive operations I have been with, very through and professional. Pete was a great instructor as well, the new divers were in great hands. Will be back, and highly recommend

    Great diving & crew Just back from Mexico and 4 days of diving (in total 10 dives) with a Blue Life and DM Pete. I have had one, if not the best dive experience in my life. I booked through Karla at Blue Life 4 days of diving, including Cenote, Cozumel & Bull shark. The superb communication between Karla and myself before my arrival and the great support from my dive buddy / dive master Pete made this an incredible diving experience. When (not if!) I come back, I\'ll make sure to dive with you again!

    accommodating from the very start accommodating from the very first conversation, blue life director of operations frank took the time to design a personalized dive package for me and my girlfriend before we arrived in the mayan riviera...concerned with safety as much as he was adventure, frank went out of his way to make sure that we\'d be both comfortable and challenged with our customized experience, and followed up with me several times to confirm...dive instructor joram was patient, thorough and professional from start to finish, greeting us with big smiles, saving the day with quick thinking and action when weather conditions at akumal prevented us from carrying out the original plan, and maintaining our interest with discussions on scuba throughout the day...most importantly, however, both he and frank were instrumental in assisting me in what would be the high point in our vacation, when they allowed me to borrow a kayak after diving, row to the secluded rear of the very romantic casa cenote, and propose to my beautiful girlfriend surrounded by mangroves and solitude...thanks again, blue life...!

    Cenotes!!!! Was going to PDC and posted a msg online for guides and dive shops in the area. Got a number of ppl on Scubaboard.com that recommended Frank. Hooked up with him and planned some of the itinerary w/ him via facebook. Had a awesome time. Went well beyond in accommodating us and our requests to go see specific cenotes as well as recommending some as well. Awesome dives, great guide.

    Unglaublich! Incredible! Wir waren drei Tage mit Blue Life tauchen und am liebsten wuerden wir noch Wochen hierbleiben. Unser Guide Cristobal war aeusserst professionel, sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Wir konnten jede Minute geniessen und das Dive Team hat sich um alles gekuemmert. Die Tauchgaenge selbst waren wunderschoen und haben alle Erwartungen gesprengt. Unbedingt mit Blue Life tauchen!!! We were diving with Blue Life for three days and I wish we could have stayed for weeks. Our guide Cristobal was very professional, extremly helpful and friendly. We enjoyed every minute of it and the Dive Team took care of everything. The diving itself was wonderful too and even better than you can expect it to be. Dont miss diving with Blue Life!!!
