Mobile ticket


For whoever who has not dove yet, a plunge in our beautiful reefs will be the best experience of the vacation, hands down. Our PADI instructors are professionals who have the necessary experience, sympathy and patience to make your first experience diving a really memorable one. Come and discover Costa Maya's hidden wonders with the best team in town!



In the PADI DSD we go thru theory (physiology of diving & SCUBA unit overview) prior the basic skills training in confined water (water shallow enough to stand up). Then a 10 minutes boat trip to a beautiful spot of our coral garden follows for a dive under the care of a PADI dive instructor. Max depth will be 40 feet, as safety standards require. The descend (bottom starts at 25 feet) is along the mooring line to make things smoother. Dive time depends on participant's air consumption; average time is 43 minutes.

Really good service by Oscar and all the very professional and helpful staff of Mar Adentro during scuba discover dive practice and actual dive. My son did his first dive and I, with some more experience, was refreshing my diving skills and sharing the experience. Strong recommendation!
