Plunging our heads into the sea and taking the first breath underwater is just as fascinating now as it was on the very first dive. For us, to leave our natural surroundings and immerse ourselves into a world so foreign is still one of the greatest adventures there is.
So come and join us on our adventures and become a diver. Blue Experience Dive Center Akumal offers a full range of PADI courses to cater to everyone from your first breath underwater right up to Divemaster.
If you are age 8 or 9 and love the water one of our team can guide you through your Bubble Maker.

If you have never dipped your head under water the Discover Scuba Dive is exactly right for you. Your dive instructor will give you a short explanation of the basic rules for a safe and easy dive and will make you familiar with the equipment. Next are a few exercises in shallow water where you learn how to handle your diving equipment. Afterwards you will go on your first boat dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters (40 feet) and will experience the amazing world under the sea.
