Try it to see if you like it. - Caroline was absolutely wonderful and helping us set up our trip and schedule transportation. Every time I had a question she got back to me right away and made me feel comfortable that we weren’t dealing with an unreliable company. These guys were great. The guide was great experience was great Getting to go scuba diving without having to get certified with super cool as it gives you the experience to know if you want to do the training and become a scuba diver. Totally suggest trying this.

Knowledgeable, friendly, professional - This was an incredible experience with incredible hosts! The team is very knowledgeable and friendly. They explained and taught us everything we needed to know with a pre-dive training session. Then they took us to some unbelievable dive locations. Absolutely unforgettable experience! We would highly encourage you to book with A’Ha’ on your next Cancún visit. Thank you so much Marin, Lorena, & Carolina.

very professional - I am a certified diver and I requested a review course. Instructor/tour guide gave a detailed and professional scuba diving review course and the two scuba tank dives were amazing. We saw plenty of turtles, Stingray and other beautiful fish. Unfortunately, I got a little seasick. Don’t forget your Dramamine if you’re sensitive!

Better experience that expected! - Me and my wife went here as part of our honeymoon. We have been snorkeling, but never scuba diving, and trying to get certified in the states before spring was a nightmare. Thankfully, this is one of 2 places we found that will take uncertified beginners out, but this is the only one that provided wetsuits. You meet there by the pool, get some safety information, then suit with wetsuits, flippers, and gear and start doing guided practice in the pool. The instructor was very patient and helpful, and gave us extra time in the pool (which I needed to get the breathing down) until we were comfortable. There were 2 dive sites, both about 30 to 40 feet down. After practice, you get on the boat and ride out past Isla Mujeres and go for your first dive. They walk you through everything from exiting the boat, lowering yourself down, equalizing pressures, etc. The instructor kept a close eye on us and assisted if anybody had problems (either with descending, water in mask, etc), and even offered to get pictures of us underwater with our camera! The instructor/guide definitely wanted to make sure that you get the most from your experience; seems very selfless on their part. Better than expected on this experience.

Perfect anniversary gift! Treat yourselves!! - Such an amazing day!! Carolina and Miguel (the captain), and male instructor Marin (the owner) and Carolina his wife were SO professional! Full instruction, made sure everyone was comfortable before diving and we saw so many things! HUGe sting Ray! Beautiful schools of fish and more ! They have lockers there recommend locking up your stuff so they aren’t soaked on the trip out and back! We took IPHone waterproof camera case but in the end decided to have them take the photos/videos for extra cost and it was totally worth it. Allowed us to be able to enjoy the dive and not be fumbling with technology. One note: I have never been seasick and did not take anti nausea meds (as recommended) and wish I had! Take the meds and enjoy the dive of a lifetime! Thank you again , we will be back !!

Spectacular - What a memorable experience! This was 10/10 the instructions at the start helped us for when we went into the ocean which was a big help to know the basics. The instructions helped so much I felt very comfortable going in. When we got to isle Mujeres where we started with the underground museum so cool we saw so many fish! A turtle so many things it was incredible! Once we finished that we went to the coral reef and that was magnificent! So many fish it was truly breathtaking. I’ve snorkelled before and this is an entire different level! I recommend 1000 times!!
