Welcome to Dive Mike!

The adventure began in 2001, when Dive Mike first opened its doors as a PADI dive center right in the heart of Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

We are located only a short walk away from the beach, where we embark to reach our local dive sites in just a few minutes. Based along the Riviera Maya, right on the Mesoamerican reef, for scuba diving we offer you a great variety of beautiful Caribbean underwater landscapes, including shallow colorful coral gardens, deeper drift dives, the Mama Viña wreck, the spectacular reefs and walls of Cozumel, and more. Not far from us, in the nearby jungle are the Cenotes. These astonishing fresh water lagoons give us access to countless underwater caves and caverns submerged in crystal-clear waters, which also are a must see for any scuba diver.

Let’s not forget about our seasonal highlights!
Between November and March we have the incredible Bull Shark Encounter, where female bull sharks visit the shores of Playa del Carmen and give us the opportunity to dive with them.
In summer, from June until September, we have the Whale Shark Experience, where you can swim next to these gentle giants. Both these tours are an experience you will not forget!

I highly recommend them!

I've used Dive Mike for my last two trips to Playa del Carmen and will continue to do so. The bull shark encounter was amazing and I highly recommend it. Cavern diving in the Cenotes is where Dive Mike really shines. The owners, Jorge and Candy, run a great shop!
