Explore the reefs just off Costa Maya (Mahahual) and enjoy some great marine life. This excursion is for certified divers - let our dive masters show you part of the second-largest barrier reef in the world and explore its beauty with a top-notch company. Your big decision is will your Costa Maya diving excursion be one tank or two!?
The dive shop is just a short shuttle ride from the pier (approximately $2.00 USD per person). If you have others in your group, bring them along and they can hang out on the beach while you dive. The professionally trained PADI dive staff will get you all checked in and get your adventure excursion in Costa Maya, Mexico, going.
The reef locations are fairly close, so travel time is brief. You will have the chance to see some exciting marine life including giant sea turtles, eels, lionfish, manta rays, coral formations, and more. Some of the more popular dive spots include Xcalack and Xahuaixol. The locations are decided daily by the dive master depending on the currents and water conditions.
The Meso-American Barrier Reef runs over 900 kilometers from Cozumel to Honduras. The section of reef off Mahahual (Costa Maya) has many finger formations that have created canyons and swim-throughs. The reef here is very healthy and in almost pristine condition - you will see cactus coral as well as many hard and soft species.
The equipment used is top-of-the-line and is continuously maintained by Sherwood-certified technicians. BCDs and regulators are replaced on a regular basis. The quality of the equipment helps ensure everyone has a safe and fun day.
The one-tank dive is approximately 2 hours and the two-tank dive is approximately 3 hours. Choose this dive excursion as a separate activity or as an add-on to your All Inclusive YaYa Beach Break
