Discover SCUBA Diving Course

Want to see the magical underwater world? Try Diving!


Duration: 1 Day

Experience Level: None (10 years old)

Dive Type: Ocean/Cenotes

What's included? The course includes one dive (second is optional) with a professional instructor, equipment, snacks, water, park entrance/boat fees, and a great time.

Discover SCUBA Diving is the first step in experiencing all the underwater world has to offer! It is a one-day diving experience made for you to witness the wonders of the ocean under the direct supervision of an experienced instructor. The Blue Life Discover SCUBA Diving program allows you to take a peek at the vibrant reefs that line the coast of the Riviera Maya, specifically Playa del Carmen and Tulum, both world-renowned diving destinations.

Your Discover SCUBA Diving experience will include a thorough safety briefing, a confined-water session in a pool or open-water cenote, and one or two open water dives, either on a shallow reef or the open-water section of a crystal clear cenote. During the briefing you will review how our bodies respond to being underwater, proper equalization and breathing techniques, underwater communication, SCUBA equipment, and techniques for efficient underwater swimming.  Upon completion of the briefing and a short quiz, you will then begin the confined water session, where you will experience breathing underwater for the first time and what an amazing sensation it is!  Your instructor will guide you through a few simply underwater skills at your own pace, and upon successful completion of these excercises, you will be qualified to head out to the open water.  We will either board a boat dive to head to the reef or continue into the deeper waters of the open water cenote, such as the beautiful Casa Cenote (video) (weather dependent). Here you will see all of the shapes, sizes and colors of aquatic life (video) and begin to have an an understanding of the adventures that scuba diving can unlock for you. Back on the surface, your instructor will help you identify and name all of the exotic creatures you saw during your SCUBA experience, such as moray eels, lobsters, sea turtles and many more! Your Discover SCUBA diving experience starts around 8:00 am and ends around 4:30 pm. This experience can be credited as the first step towards getting your full SCUBA diving certification, the Open Water Diver Course.

Pricing includes all entrance and boat fees, transportation from the dive shop to the dive site and back, guide, rental equipment, snacks and water for your surface intervals, and a light lunch if the course is given in Casa Cenote.

    The BEST experience! I could not recommend Blue Life more highly. I did the Discover Scuba diving course, and was pretty nervous on my way over. My nerves immediately went away when meeting my instructor, who was super comforting and basically lives under water. He taught and guided me with patience, I couldn’t even imagine being scared after his training. The whole team was accommodating, kind, and just overall great! Very happy diver!

    joined friend for discover scuba Im an avid diver and I finally convinced one of my friends to try it for a discover scuba. Blue Life let me buy two dives to just go along with her after her pool time. We dove with Steve, who was AWESOME and I sat through their dive briefing which I felt was informative, helpful and soothing. The actual diving outside the shop in playa does not have beautiful reefs but it has a lot of cool life. We saw 5 turtles, lots of eels, and for me there was a surprising amount of cool macro stuff. They were very kind and let us borrow a gopro and generally were really kind and helpful the entire way through. 10/10 would recommend!

    Stellar Dive shop! Our entire experience with Blue Life was fantastic! Even before our arrival, Frank was really helpful in answering a few questions I had via a cool, real-time chat feature they have on their website. Once we arrived, Andrea and Carolina helped us schedule our dives with cheerful attentiveness to our unique needs - My husband took the one day “Discover Scuba” course, and though I’ve been certified for some time, they scheduled things so that I could accompany him on his very first dive in the afternoon :) His instructor Valentina was awesome, attentive and very thorough - my husband really appreciated her close oversight during both the training session and on this first dive. And I also appreciated it as well, as it allowed me to enjoy a relaxed dive with attention on the marine life and taking photos, knowing she was right there beside him to help him with anything he may need as a new diver. There may be bigger shops in town, but from experience I’ve found that smaller shops tend to give you better one-on-one attention and customer service, and this was certainly the case with Blue Life. Immense thanks to all of you! We had an incredible time, and looking forward to diving with you again next time we’re in PDC! :)

    Wonderful experience I did Discover Scuba and it was awesome. The training (by Hugo) was professional and straightforward. I felt completely ready to dive in both skills and basic knowledge. The actual dive was great too (we went with Vale).The water was clear and we got to see a bunch of really cool sea creatures. Vale was able to point out some neat fish, eel, crab, etc. that I would not have seen otherwise.

    Perfect! Diving with Blue Life turned out to be an excellent choice. My girlfriend had had a bad experience diving before and was quite nervous, so it wasn\'t going to be easy. Well it turned out perfectly well as our instructor Hugo put everything together to make her feel confident and comfortable under water. A great team, I highly recommend them

    Thanks for a great dive! My husband and I brought our daughters (16, 25) for their first dive recently, and so glad we chose Blue Life. The instructor and guide Giacomo made sure they were completely prepared before the dive, and really took care of them in the water. And the dives were amazing - so much wildlife include my 16 yr olds favorite, the flounder! So glad their 1st dive experience was so great, hope they will love diving as much as we have over the years.

    Super dive instructors. My wife and I are certified and wanted a good guide to Introduce our daughters to diving. Their discovery course was spot on. Lessons in a real diving swimming pool before open water. Jack was a patient and reliable dive master and instructor.  Great crew!  Took us to Cozumel the second day on the fast boat. Home by 1:00 to enjoy the rest of the afternoon after a spectacular dive. Very much recommended.

    Excellent Ocean Adventure We chose this group from a friend\'s suggestion. Boy were they right! I hadn\'t dove in a long time and couldn\'t wait to get back in the water. Our group had some experienced and novice divers and Blue Life catered to everyone. Thank you, Valentina and Andrea, for giving us a memorable adventure during our trip! Hope to see you again in future! Dan - Indianapolis, Indiana

    Great dive for quite a few first divers After a lot of online search, I reached out to Blue Life, and from the time I sent my first email to the day we did the dive Andrea was amazing! She answered every question/concerned I had, and made me feel really good about my choice. There was quite a few people in our group that was there first time diving, and I didn’t dive for quite a few year. On the diving day, I been though we were 7, both Valentina and Andrea were able to keep everything under control and I think everyone felt good and safe diving. I totally recommend this place! I am trying to come back in December for the bull shark diving!

    Scuba diving near Cozumel We went with a guided scuba diving tour off of Cozumel with Blue Life. Our guide Valentina was very friendly and helpful for the entire duration. We started with some basic training in a swimming pool where we got comfortable with our equipment and procedures. Vale was very patient and made us feel well taken care of. At each step in the process she carefully explained what we were about to do. During the dive she kept a close eye on each of us to make sure everything was going smoothly. When I come back to Playa del Carmen I\'ll definitely go diving with them again!

    Blue Life This is was my first time scuba diving and it was the best experience ever! The whole team at Blue Life did an outstanding job. Val & Andrea were very patient with our group and did excellent to ensure that we had a safe and enjoyable experience. We had a group of 7 divers and all received the upmost attention. Overall this experience was my most memorable experience during my Cancun vacation.

    Snorkel in Dos Ojos and SCUBA in Cozumel Our trip was very well organized and planned. It was made especially well with our amazing tour guide, Valentina. She was very calm, collected, patient and professional throughout our customized tour. Our group felt at ease with Valentina guiding and instructing us throughout our trip (which included transportation, tickets, equipment and food) It was my very first time in a cenote, and apparently we went to a very special one, which included a guide-only directed bat cave encounter. Cozumel was even more beautiful with its crystal clear waters and calm waves. We were able to see the colorful coral, fish, turtles and even lobsters. It was also my first time SCUBA diving. With Valentina guiding us, I was able to concentrate on the beautiful reef, instead of worrying about my safety. I would highly recommend Blue Life again, as the the entire process was easy and fun at the same time.

    Great first dive with Scuba Steve First experience in scuba diving for me and my girlfriend. We only started arranging things a day upfront so we really appreciated fast replies we got from Andrea who helped us organize a one day experience - Discover scuba diving. It turned out that my asthma can complicate things so she helped me get a medical exam nearby on the same day - really helpful. We started the day with picking the right equipment, signing disclaimers and, most of all, practice in the pool with Leo. They limit their groups to 4 people but on that day we had a private session! It took about an hour or two for us to go through the pool exercises (know hot to retrieve your mask underwater etc) - Leo was a good teacher. Afrer our lunch break we set off for two dives with Scuba Steve - great guy, just listening to him talk will calm you down, he made sure we feel perfectly comfortable and yet make the most out of our first dive. Could not wish for a better guide underwater. Overall very happy we chose Blue Life - we saw families with kids participate as well, sometimes leaving the little ones with Valentina who can teach them some basics in swimming. Thank you guys - we had such a blast!

    Large Group for a Discover Scuba Dive We had an amazing time as a large group of 12, almost all first time divers. Val, Hugo and Willy were amazing instructors and very patient with such a large group. We only had one day and went diving in a beautiful Cenote and took some amazing pictures and video. Next time in Playa well be sure to come back to Blue Life for another dive with the team. Thanks again!

    Riviera Maya Scuba and Discover Scuba with Teenagers Bottom Line first: Blue Life is Excellent (really!) and instructor Valentina (Vale) is amazing, talented, qualified, and a pleasure to spend time with. Details: 2nd weekend in January, family of four - parents certified (but haven\'t been diving in 15 years) and teenage sons (18 and 15) never-ever. Due to time constraints we enrolled the boys in the Discover Scuba Diving course with uncertain expectations. For a reasonable price the Blue Life manager (Frank, also great) let us \"observe\" the boys\' course as a refresher. Valentina (can I say again how fantastic she is?) connected with all of us, coached the boys through scuba fundamentals on land then in a cenote. I recall with smile her saying \"Ok, let\'s have fun and dive!\" after she felt the boys were confident and we did a cool loop around the cenote. Planned afternoon reef dive was called off due to wind conditions, but Blue Life (again Frank!) arranged for a two tank reef dive the next morning with the kids. Seriously - if you are looking for a dive shop in Riviera Maya, choose Blue Life. Completely 100% satisfied with the experience. Location is off the north end of Quinta Avenida in Playa del Carmen, towards the beach. Do yourself a favor... call Frank at Blue Life and get underwater!

    Of the hundreds of shops, this is your best choice !!!! It was my first time diving in playa del carmen and it was definitely the best choice ! I am a certified diver and wanted to dive with my boyfriend, he did a DSD. They coordinated everything so we could go the same day, since its low season it was just the two of us, i was with Hugo, awsome guy, knows everything about the area, and my boyfriend was with Doug, he had so much patience. Vero, the manager, was super helpful giving us all the info, helping us to plan which places were more suitable etc and they are very concern about safety and going to the right places according to your experience I will definitely come back with them ! There are still many cenotes to explore :)

    Another great dive with Blue Life This was my second dive trip with Blue Life. Great staff and a great experience. A shout out to Fernanda!! We plan to be back in a month with our two kids for a Discover Diving lesson.

  25. Rated 5 out of 5


    Great Family Experience Fernanda and Hugo are the bomb! Fernanda is fast with the responses and a great person to work with on the internet to arrange your dives. All I can say is that Fernanda made the coordination too easy and has set the bar for others to follow, if we go to another dive resort. Hugo was AWESOME with the discovery dive for my wife and youngest son. As a newly certified open water diver, my oldest son and I immediately focused on getting our skills back and comfortable. Safety is Hugo\'s top priority and that allowed me to relax and concentrate on my air supply and not worry. Hugo spent quality time making sure my wife was comfortable and at times pulling her along when the current was a little strong. Fernanda were quick to make adjustments to the weather and also make great recommendations for our follow on dives. Although my wife will probably never get certified, she will dive with Blue Life again and my son will only work with Blue Life for his open water certification. Can\'t wait to come back and snorkel with the whale sharks and also dive Cozumel.

    *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 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) 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.....

    My First Scuba Experience My certified diver fiancee and I wanted to dive on our recent trip to Playa del Carmen. I didn\'t know it, but she picked out the best dive shop in town. I had zero experience walking in. Sarah not only taught me what I needed to learn for a safe Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) trip but left me with the confidence I needed to go 30 feet underwater and not freak out. I had a blast and can\'t thank BlueLife enough.

    Fantastic Scuba experience!!! Blue Life is a fantastic dive operation! They are extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and very fun! This is the most responsive service I\'ve ever had when booking any excursion of any type (have dove, fished and kited in several locations). From the moment I sent my first email, Fernanda was unbelievably responsive, professional and courteous. She helped us find the right type of class and schedule it on a date that fit our schedule. The instruction in our course (Discover Scuba) was fantastic. Susie lead the course, and this was, by far, the best Discover Scuba class that I\'ve ever taken (have taken 3 others). She is extremely experienced, focused on safety and did an incredible job helping us understand all the details. During the dives she was awesome - lead us on some great routes (we took two dives), kept a close watch on us at all times, and helped point out some great fish and other wildlife! We can\'t recommend Blue Life enough! If you are going to dive in Playa del Carmen, absolutely book with these guys.

    Excellent service. We used Blue Life for their Discover Diving class for my daughter, who is not certified and was trying scuba for the first time. Fernanda was easy to work with and answered all my questions promptly via email. Once we arrived Valentina was an excellent teacher and worked with my daughter on the pool work in the morning. In the afternoon we went on two shallow dives (I am a certified diver and came along for these). My daughter had personal one on one instruction from Valentina throughout the whole of the afternoon as I was the only other one diving with her. It was a great first experience for her. I only wish we had had time to do more dives with them!

    Great experience with Blue Life I am new to diving, and chose Blue Life based on their reviews. I will say that Blue Life has a great group of people at their dive shop. Hugo & Roxy were my instructors, and they were kind and patient with me. Hugo has over 10,000 dives, so obviously experienced, but also he explains each topic thoroughly and with a simple explanation. All the other people on the dives also had fun. Hugo also knows the local places to grab lunch in between the pool and the ocean. The dive shop is a one block walk from the beach. I will be back to dive again with Blue Life.

    Perfect day If diving is on your bucket list, this is the company to use. This was my first diving experience and I could not have asked for a more patient diving instructor. I went with two other experienced divers and they were impressed with her ability to work with beginners. We did a dive in a cenote that was just right for a beginner. I panicked on two occasions but she remained calm and was able to read me and now how much she could push me. It was a perfect day.

    Excellent First Time Diving Frank, the owner, was great in accommodating our last minute change in plans to go diving a day earlier. We did a tank dive with Hugo who was the perfect instructor in making both of us feel extremely safe and confident in the water. He worked with us in the pool until we were really comfortable and was attentive during the open water dives in the ocean. Hugo was great in pointing out and finding great sea life as well. We do two dives, each about 50 minutes. We highly recommend Blue Life. They are in the midst of a move so make sure to confirm with them via email the location and not just just google maps.

    Our First Scuba Dive Experience My husband and I tried scuba diving for the very first time on Apr 26. I did some research and decided on Blue Life as the guide for our first experience. That was by far the right decision. The entire experience was excellent. My first inquiry was answered by Frank and he answered all my concerns and questions. Then Sarah followed up a week before our trip and then confirmed the day before our excursion. Our scuba instructor, Hugo, was very patience and knowledgeable. We were supposed to go to the ocean but because of the strong current that day, Hugo suggested we dive in an open cenote. That was an excellent suggestion because we don\'t think we would have enjoyed it as much given the ocean condition that day. We had a lot of fun, everything was provided and Hugo was very patient with me who kept floating up! We made the right call to dive with Blue Life. There was nothing to improve our experience. Thank you Frank, Sarah, and Hugo for a great excursion!

    Scuba Diving My wife and I started scuba diving with Blue Life in February 2015 and transitioned from the Discovery to the PADI Certification course which led to further dives in Two Eye Cenote and the Santa Rosa Wall off Cozumel. Being older (70 and 55) we took things slowly and carefully. No one could have been more attentive, patient or flexible than the Blue Life dive masters and scheduler. When the pool turned out to be too cold, they took us to Akumal for the remaining shallow water training. They made sure we were comfortable with the masks and equipment. All the while, it was just us and the dive master. Willian (Willie) introduced us to diving and, as the cenote specialist, took us to Two Eyes and one of the highlights of our month-long stay in Playa. Hugo shepherded us through the training dives and the demanding exercises required for certification, celebrating that achievement with us. Sarah adapted to our scheduling needs and even stopped by our apartment to drop off materials. They even set up our direct Playa-to-Cozumel boat trip to the famous and beautiful Wall where we made our last dive. Their local \"connections\" led to a spur-of-the-moment fishing expedition. Oh, and the price was comparable to companies that did not offer such personal training and diving. We would certainly choose them again for our next diving experience.

    Safety First! My family and I enjoyed our first dive with The Blue Life over the recent Thanksgiving break. This was not only our first dive with Blue Life, but also our first dive ever and we could not have been in better hands. We coordinated our dive with Frank and he was our point of contact throughout the booking process. We spent a significant amount of time researching and reading reviews leading up to our booking due to the fact we were going to have our 12 year old daughter join us on this adventure. Blue Life offers an \"Explore Diving\" option which allows you to do the first two dives of your PADI certification as an option. This was perfect for us because we were unsure if this would be too much for our young daughter. The first of our two dives involved intensive training out of the water as much as in, we were taught all of the basics including the use of all of the equipment its functions and what was to be expected once we entered the water. William was our instructor and I cannot thank him enough for the time and care he took with all of us, especially out daughter. He was not lax in any way, if he felt we weren\'t comprehending all of what was he was teaching or what was involved, he would repeat and re-teach until it was clearly understood and we were able to demonstrate the knowledge learned. Following the pre dive training, we did our first dive in a small and safe cenotes called the \"Garden of Eden\" this offers both a challenging option for more experienced divers, but also a very safe shallow option to demonstrate what we had learned in our initial training. William took no chances and walked us through all of the procedures and signals by first demonstrating while we watched. We than had to be able to repeat without error. If we made a mistake he would have us repeat until we were up to his standards. We than began by descending about 15\' and kneeling on the bottom, he adjusted our weight to insure we were able to float evenly from the bottom to the top as well as taught techniques to self adjust while swimming. He than had us follow him in a circle around the shallow portion of the cenotes and continue to demonstrate what we had learned. He continued this until he felt we had a strong understanding of the concepts and procedures involved. Even after we had reached that point he asked my daughter if she was comfortable and without hesitation spent another 20 minutes insuring that she was as comfortable as we were. What really confirmed that we made the right choice was when we were getting out and a young couple who had been with another group observed us and expressed that it was their first dive too and had no where near the level of training they had seen us undergo before and while diving. You could see that they were truly concerned with their level of training and supervision. We at no point were in any danger while with William, but the other couple stated that they were allowed to enter caves and tight areas without the proper training and felt fearful throughout the the entire experience with their instructor. Following the training and initial dive we than headed to another cenotes called \"Casa Cenotes\" this was a crystal clear and open area, almost like a very deep river with many crevasses and caves. It had very few obstacles to cause us problems, but gave you a truly incredible experience for our first open water dive. We explored the depths with a high level of confidence and at no point were we out of Williams sight for a moment. Our underwater pictures and video would be the only way to truly articulate the beauty, but in one word \"Amazing\". Thank you William and Blue Water for a truly memorable experience.

    Unbelievable!!!! I booked a trip with Frank prior to leaving to Mexico, and I am so happy I did. He responded immediately and had everything ready for us when we arrived. After our first day with Monica in casa cenote I was able to Email him and ask for another dive. He responded immediately again and we were diving with Monica in the ocean the next day. I cannot say how much we enjoyed ourselves. Never thought I would ever be diving, but my husband and I cannot wait to go back and do it again with our children. Next time we intend to get Certified. Thank you for a great vacation and a birthday I will never forget. Joelle

    Wonderful first scuba experience Our Playa Del Carmen resort promised a free pool scuba session with each booking and even had a sign up by the pool stating that there were lessons between 2-4:00 p.m. While my wife and I showed up every day to try and take advantage of it, no one ever showed up to give the lesson. I then consulted TripAdvisor and saw that Blue Life Diving had very high satisfaction ratings. My wife and I had never dived before (only snorkeled) and decided to take their Discover Scuba course. Monica from Blue Life picked us up at our resort and she proceeded to take us to a cenote for our initial dive (the ocean was too rough that day). She was very thorough and professional and the equipment that was provided was of high quality. Scuba can be intimidating but Monica made it a very enjoyable and calm experience. We then went to a different cenote for our next (and last dive) and Monica took some underwater photos of us with my waterproof camera. It was a great outing and we are now seriously thinking about taking PADI courses prior tour next tropical vacation.

    Dive with the best!..... My son and I used Blue Life on our recent trip to the Riviera Maya. My son communicated with Frank prior to our trip and arranged four days of diving. Frank was knowledgeable and a true diving professional. My son dove the reefs of Akumal with Pete who was patient and knowledgeable and who went out of he way to help when my son lost his camera. Thank you to Poncho for a great dives in Cozumel. A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Monica for three days of cenote dives, but most of all for my Intro to Dive. To say I am a less than adequate swimmer is an understatement.....this ladies knowledge, patience, and passion for diving is contagious.....she made my experience one of the best ever and she too went above and beyond to make our experience fabulous.... I am actually considering certification :-). My son was especially impressed with how dive times were maximized ,with the attention to safety and the fact that diving with the Blue Life staff makes you want to become a better diver and the tips they shared have absolutely increased his knowledge as a diver. Frank checked in with my son on a daily basis to make sure all dives went well and to reconfirm plans for the following day. We are planning a return trip so he can take Frank\'s Cave Diving and Side mount Course. Communication was better than great and he put together a custom package that exceeded our expectations. Thank you Frank and your\'re the best! Claudia P. and Morgan T.

    Very accomodating! Great company to dive with in the Mayan Riviera! When looking for a company to dive with I looked into lots of options, but chose Blue Life largely due to their customer service and accommodation of our requests. Karla responded to all of my emails promptly and helped to answer all the questions we had right away. Our request was slightly challenging as I have my open water certification, but wanted to dive with my brothers who were doing discover diving. Blue Life picked us up directly from our hotel and the owner, Frank, even called to wish us a great day of diving on the way to our first site! At first I was concerned that the dive locations for the discover diving may be too simple for me, but both dive sites (one cenote, one open water reef) were unique and incredible, I was not bored in the slightest! Blue Life was able to accommodate both skill levels into our experience, providing the guidance my brothers required, but also allowing me the freedom to use the skills I had already learned. We were also in our own group so we had all the attention we needed from our instructor, Pete, who was fabulous! We were even able to snorkel in Akumal with plenty of turtles and rays in between our dives, an added bonus! I would definitely dive with Blue Life again, I would recommend it to anyone interested in both discover dives and fun dives!

    Very Fun & Accommodating We did 4 dives with Blue Life in May. There were 4 of us- 3 certified & 1 that wasn\'t. I wanted to make sure we had fun, stayed safe & weren\'t limited by my sister\'s lack of certification. (ha!) Frank & Karla were so accommodating and made it all work be sending 2 dive guides with us. We had a private boat off Akumal and all of us had an amazing time. Pete even helped us get the practical portion of our Nitrox certification. My only regret is that we didn\'t schedule more dives with them during our visit.

    1st time diver, loved it! Even though I was a first time diver, the team made me feel very safe and super excited. Thanks Pete for being patient with us! Pete is the awesome Brit instructor. He was very professional and knowledgeable. We saw several sea turtles, probably my favorite part of the experience. I\'m definitely hooked and looking forward to my next dive when I get more vacation time. They also provided us with rides to and from our hotel :) I can definitely say that scuba diving was the highlight of my trip to Playa. And I would highly recommend this company. -Noor D.

    Memory I\'ll Never Forget I contacted Blue Life Diving months ago before coming to Cancun Mexico for my vacation. Myself and my boyfriend were first time travelers to Mexico and wanted to try scuba diving. I was in contact with a employee who answered my questions in a professional and timely matter and even took the time to get to know what I was looking for while explaining the different types of diving atmospheres. I chose the Discover Diving experience because it was our first time ever diving. Pete was our guide and he was on time in picking us up for our discover diving experience. We had a lot of fun on the way there asked lots of questions and felt extremely comfortable with the responses given. When we arrived Pete was very informative and professional about the safety of scuba diving and ensured that all details were covered and any questions were answered and explained. Pete was always calm and relaxing as an instructor making the diving experience 100% stress free. Pete was always positive in making sure our first time diving was safe and an experience we will never forget. We conducted mandatory safety skills that were necessary for every diver to know. These skills were also explained and demonstrated before diving took place. Upon completing our under water safety skills we were able to start exploring the waters with Pete close to our side. We felt so comfortable and relaxed after the moment of nervousness set (being first time divers) it was amazing experiencing the water from underneath. We both recommend this company and will continue to use Blue Life Diving for our next trip to get our Open Water Certification. This company really prides themselves on the safety of the diver(s) as well as the experience for the diver(s).

    Like meeting friends Excellent diving operation and instructor and very nice people. We came to Playa del Carmen for myself to do a try dive and continue onto my OW and for my husband to do some xenote diving. We choose Blue Life Diving as they are so highly qualified (cave dive instructors) and Karla replied to us right away, upon query, and followed up very quickly with each of our many emails! Karla and Frank also had an apartment available for us to rent, which was very convenient for trying to work out where to stay. It happened to be in their same building so we met with them when we arrived and were able to discuss plans. They are extremely nice and friendly people, we met with them several times to discuss plans and though probably not normal practice, they even gave me a loan of their computer for me to work on my OW manual and reviews etc. (Being in the same building obviously made this easy too)! My instructor was Pete who is also a fully qualified cave diver. He is very friendly and methodical, giving me all the information I needed for my first dives. We went to Casa xenote for my try dive, which was really cool for a first dive. I felt comfortable with him as an instructor and can\'t imagine anyone could have been better! My husband did some xenote diving at Pit and Pet, also with Pete and absolutely loved it. We are very pleased at having chosen Blue Life Diving and as we are still here in Playa will probably see if we can do some more dives with them before we leave!
