Highly recommended! First time diver
, Aug 2022
The staff were super nice and helpful! They will guide you on every step of the way and explain everything! Me and my friends now in love with scuba diving because of this experience:))
Great experience

Great experience for beginners. My husband and some are certified but we’re still able to enjoy a beautiful dive without having to go out on a boat.

Very nice staff and customer service . Beautiful place as well. Scuba diving was amazing . Lots of fishes ! Great experience.
Easy and fun dives near the port
, Apr 2022
It is very easy to catch a taxi once out of the port shopping area. $4 per person was the rate we were given and were combined with others going to the beach a very short drive away. Once at the shop, we were greeted and welcomed very nicely. The gear was typical rental gear and sufficient. Our dive master and boat crew were super helpful and courteous. It was a short walk to the boat and a short ride to the sites. Coral and fish were plentiful and healthy. We saw the largest loggerhead turtle ever! Renzo did a great job spotting critters for us.

Fantastic first time dive experience!
, Mar 2022
Fantastic experience!! We arrived a bit late due to daylight saving mix up (by the way, they do not use daylight savings time.) We met Omar at M.J.'s Dive shop, last dive shop on the beach with no problem. We thought we were late and rushed but they told us no worries, relax by the beach a bit first. My partner is certified and I was not. We had our own masks and fins. They do have everything you need if you don't have your own. Our dive master was very relaxing and explained everything very clearly. Then we dove for 45 minutes in Chanknaab reef. Warm, clear water. We wrote swimsuits. We saw so many types of fish, lobster, crabs and coral. They took us to numerous statues underwater and held a shrimp. A photographer came with to take photos and videos which was great! Then the best part.... we dove thru/inside caves and tunnels, amazing!! After, they washed our gear for us. We were able to use their lockers all day to store our things. They showed us the photos and videos they took with no pressure to buy, we did,of course. Highly recommended for first time divers, divers who haven't dove in a while as a refresher even experienced divers to go thru the caves. Side note, the experience was so great, I ended up getting my open water certification within two days after this experience and dove 5 more times all over Cozumel. We will go back there anytime!!

Great time !
, Nov 2021
This place was a excellent adventure ! Scuba was affordable and a ton of fun and they have a good sea lion show.
Excellent dive tour
, Jul 2021
They text you to confirm the time. They give a very quick briefing on how to dive and they always allow you to back out and get a refund before you get into the water. The whole dive was clear, relaxing and a beautiful experience of Cozumel's waters. The photographer's videos and photos are great, totally optional (package at 69 usd). Everyone's so sweet and kind and accommodating. Very much worth every dollar.
Juan is number Juan!

Juan was wonderful! He was very patient with the beginner divers. He pointed out several eels and lion fish. He was great. Will come dive with him any time!

Amazing Experience
, Dec 2020
We choose this club for our 1st diving experience based on the good reviews and the fair price they have in Cozumel (about 100usd for 2 people 1 tank each). We were delighted to see that we were the only 2 people at our session. Juan the instructor is very good, professional and a smooth person. The training part was made close to the shore (not in a pool) that's a good point to be directly in real conditions. Juan was very attentive we both felt very cumfortable in water so we were able to finish the training quickly then moving further and deeper to enjoy the reef. Juan showed us lots of beautiful underwater wonders. We recommend to accept underwater pics and videos to immortalize statues, fauna and flora. Thanks to all the staff. Amazing experience for couples or beginners.

Diving was great, once we figured out how to get there
, Feb 2020
Really enjoyed the dive! It was a little confusing about where to go, we had done a Stingray trip the day before in Cayman and we were met on the dock but for this we had to find our way to the park, then keep asking where to go. Also we wanted to buy the pictures but did not have enough cash and they did. It take American Express. It would have been nice to have know this before. If we come back to Cozumel though I would definitely do this again!

Low quality

Instructor ok. The reef is nothing special. Upon returning from diving they ask you if you want to buy the photos for $ 80. Better to dive elsewhere.

I booked with MJ's. They were very professional. If you are a first time diver, they educated you on the equipment, how to breath, hand gestures, and what to expect. If you wear glasses, they have prescription masks. The next 10 min we walked into the water and learned to breath underwater. Once everyone had it down pat, the fun began. We spent a total of 45 min underwater experiencing sea life. We went down 25 ft. While not being too deep there is plenty of colorful fish of all sizes to see. There are also statues underwater to touch. All the while an independent photographer is there to take pictures for a price. Not sure the cost since I didn't purchase. The cost of the dive was $52.50 + $5 to get into Chankanaab park. HOWEVER the entrance fee into the park without the excursion is $25 so the dive cost turned out to only be $32.50 when you take that into consideration. After the dive, I stayed in the park. There are plenty of lounge chair and upright chairs to sit on at no additional charge. They also had plenty of Palpas to sit/lie under to get away from the hot sun. Also within the park there is a crock zoo free of charge and plenty of vendors for food and drinks. A must do experience

What an experience!!!
, Nov 2019
This was one of the best experiences my husband and I have ever had. Carlos was our instructor and we have never felt so safe and taken care of. He explained everything to us perfectly and even then, when it was time for us to go under, he validated us in our concerns and made sure we were safe. This was amazing for non certified beginners. This was the best experience and we cannot wait to do it again.
