Add To Plan

This excursion is ideal for beginning or non-certified divers who want to experience the wonders of scuba diving in one of the Caribbean's most beautiful diving destinations.

Depart the pier for the brief transfer through the town of Mahahual to the eco-friendly dive center. Upon arrival, you will be outfitted with scuba gear and given an introductory scuba diving lesson. You will then embark a dive boat, and ride to shallow waters to practice your newly-acquired skills. Once comfortable, you will progress from the shallows to one of our many beautiful dive sites and take a guided tour of the Meso-American Barrier Reef. The area of the reef you will visit is renowned for its healthy and pristine coral, and breathtaking reef formations that form massive ledges and swim-throughs. Common marine life experienced on these dives include turtles, lobsters, stingrays, eels, king crabs, barracuda, and dolphin, as well as a variety of tropical reef fish that include damsels, butterfly fish, pork fish, parrot fish, schools of Creole wrasse and blue tangs.

At the conclusion of your dive, you will opt to return to the ship, or stay and experience the local culture and beautiful beaches of Mahahual. Once a fishing village, Mahahual is now a small town thriving with wonderful beachfront shops, restaurants, bars, arts and crafts booths, and more. Whether you are interested in diving, shopping, dining, water sport activities or a relaxing massage on the beach, you will find it in Mahahual. If you choose to stay in Mahahual after the dive excursion, you will be responsible for your own transportation back to the ship, so please be aware of the all-aboard ship time. Taxis are abundant, and will return you to the ship.
