Playa del Carmen Reef – 2 Dives

There are a great variety of different reefs and SCUBA dive spots around Playa del Carmen to visit.
You can have a closer look on which dive sites Playa del Carmen offers and what to expect from them in our Blog: 10 Amazing Dive Sites in Playa del Carmen

From shallow reefs to deep wrecks, shark point and incredible drift-dives!
During your dive day we will take you to two of the best SCUBA Diving spots in Playa del Carmen.

In a half-day excursion we will take you to dive two different dives – all reachable in boat trips of less than 20 minutes from the shore of Playa del Carmen – Coco Beach.
Early in the morning we meet to check your equipment and your instructor will give you a detailed briefing about the scheduled dives and safety procedures, as well as about what you can expect from the upcoming dive!

Your instructor will answer any questions about logistics, marine life and how your dive profiles are going to look like, to ensure you have the best possible experience.
Together you will board a fully equipped and licensed diving boat at the beach,
set up your equipment and after your buddy check, jump into the crystal clear Caribbean Sea, for some memorable, fascinating dives.

Between the dives, you will be offered fresh purified water and some snacks to reload your energy for the next dive!
After finishing the second dive your instructor will take care of any rental equipment, and you will be brought back to the shore and from there to your initial pickup location.
You will fill in log books with your instructor and have a chance to ask some last questions. If you plan to dive more, your instructor can inform you about several options and possible dives that suit your level.

What can I see SCUBA Diving in Playa del Carmen Reefs?

There is a wide variety of marine life to be found around the reefs off Playa del Carmen’s shore.
The reefs reach from 6 meters depth to approximately 35 meters, and there is plenty to see in each of them.
Almost always you’ll see the furious-looking green moray eel – one of the biggest of its kind.
Usually not very far there are great schools of fish, grunts, and reef fish, you will find Atlantic spade fish in some reefs
and an occasional jackfish or barracuda chasing by through the currents.

Shallow reefs allow us to see more macro-life, flamingo-tongues, arrow crabs and Christmas tree worms are common sightings.
There are lionfish to find under rocks, crabs, and lobsters of sometimes impressive sizes.
Every now and then you can observe a turtle eating or getting cleaned in the reef cleaning stations too!

If you’re very lucky you can spot an octopus, some sting rays, and flounders camouflaging into the reefs and sand!
