Once in a lifetime experience! If you’re new to diving this is the place for you! Eduardo our instructor made sure to take the time to make sure we truly understood everything we were doing before beginning our dives. I had brought my 12 year old son for his first time and he was very nervous at first and wanted to quit multiple times. Eduardo stuck with him and pushed him in just the right ways, he made us feel like he really cared about us and made us feel like friends! Price was amazing for what we got, I searched everywhere and most places I found charged the same price but with only one dive. To choose between the musa or the reef would be to hard, so choose Jim for your next scuba adventure!!

Some people can go right into scuba diving with a little prep course like this one provides, others not so much. My girlfriend was not able to dive, but we still had a great time.

Professional dive shop with an emphasis on safety and training. Our dive instructor was Pedro and the lady running the shop was Paige - both fantastic people. No gear issues and easy to find. A quick tip is that the sign is a red sign with a diagnal stripe, located on Avenida Juarez. We felt safe leaving our valuables at the shop.

They went above and beyond working with me on training. I was amazed at how much they did. They are super friendly and responsive. The dives were safe and controlled. They earned their money with me as I was a difficult and panicky client. Kudos to this dive team.
