Stephanie, I understand you are the owner of this shop and you should probably return soon before William runs your operation into the ground. My boyfriend and I were taken out for a two tank dive yesterday and even recruited two additional customers to join us. William appeared overwhelmed and unorganized. He did not do a pre-dive briefing, and there... More

Dear Lynette, thank you so for your comments. It breaks my heart for us to receive our first 'terrible' review, but I deeply appreciate your critical feedback. I am not the owner of Paradise Divers, but I have worked as Operations Manager since February 2015, dedicating hours of time and effort into building a brand-new, quality Padi dive resort and...

I took my mom on a fun week long trip to Isla Mujeres, and wanted to do some scuba diving. I checked on TripAdvisor, and found Paradise Divers, and emailed with Instructor Stephanie.

Dear Jenn, Thank you for such a wonderful review. It was amazing diving with you this week. My highlight was our final dives together; finding the big mumma turtle, short nose batfish and balloonfish at Media Luna Reef before going on that unique drift dive, La Cadenita, and recovering a load of discarded fishing line and spearing that massive lionfish....

I had one previous experience in Cozumel snorkelling and swore I would never go again. My wife convinced me to try again. We went out with Steph and she was excellent.

What a great experience! I am a brand new diver, open water certified about 18 months ago. Going into our first dive I managed to become seriously dehydrated and had difficulty with buoyancy. The next day I went in well hydrated but continued to struggle with my buoyancy. The more frustrated I became, the more difficulty I caused myself. Dive... More

Paradise Divers on Isla Mujeres, Mexico is the type operation I would like to dive with every time I go out scuba diving.

Dear Russell, Thanks so much for your review. I appreciate your feedback and I understand your comments about our boat. The Pez Dorado is a 28ft Panga style boat with a 5ft beam and swim ladder which makes it difficult for some older divers or divers with certain physical restrictions, to enter or exit the water. For this reason we... More
