Comments Pablo is a fantastic divemaster. This was my second trip with him. One of the days there were only two divers on the boat. He will take you where ever you want to go including the fresh water Cenotes on the mainland and whale shark trips in July and August. He will arrange night dives as well.

Pablo has the option of several different boats to accomodate your needs. His primary boat is slow but very comfortable and a great setup for diving. The boat captain helps you on with your gear and then all you have to do is stand up and step off the boat.

Pablo and crew are able to accomodate both beginners to advanced divers on the same trip if needed and provide a good experience for both groups.

The best dive of our trip was the Devil's Throat and Cathedral which is a beautiful swim through at 135 feet.

Pablo is not affiliated with any of the hotel travel agents and only accepts cash so come prepared. It is currently $70 for a two tank dive and $40 for a one tank dive.
