Fishing season is here

The season has hit full stride recently with Dorado, Kingfish, Sailfish and Blue and White Marlin being caught.
We went out for some fun the other day and caught a nice Sailfish and had a couple more following and playing with the lures. Great fun!
Blue Marlin are still eluding us, have not gotten one to the boat yet.

Diving with Marcus and Bruna

A couple of weeks ago Marcus and Bruna were back diving with us again and we were blessed with some great dives. Marcus took some great photos and especially a nice one of this Nudibranch.IMG_6269 They are pretty rare here and crazy thing is, he took a photo of one last time he was here.
Good eyes Marcus, great photos and good times. See you again next year!

Big changes and some great diving lately

Well, there have been big changes at Maya Diving this year.
We have moved out of Dreams Tulum and are now located just a few kilometers away at Tankah Inn
We are now even closer to our favorite reef sites like Tankah, En Frente and Gorgonian Gardens. The boat is in a much better spot with sandy bottom and much calmer now inside Tankah Bay.
Old customers and new have given us positive feedback on the new locale and for me, it is a much more peaceful, lower stress environment. Sometimes change is good :)

Great diving in Tulum

Just wanted to say thanks to you and your guys for the great dives that I did whilst i was over in Tulum. The Angelita cenote was one of the best dives I’ve ever done and i only wish id bought my underwater camera to capture it.
many thanks,
Martin

Thanks for the great experience… again

Hello, this is Mark Speer writing to thank Jamie, and the whole crew at the Dreams Tulum shop for such a great trip.  We just returned, and took the whole group (13 family and friends) to Dos Ojos, and I finally got my Open Water Certification.  My family has now been to Dreams three times, and we've always had absolutely outstanding experiences with everyone at Maya Diving.  Again, thanks to all at the Dreams Tulum shop.

Thanks for the wonderful experience

Hola queridos amigos
I simply wanted to take a moment to thank you so very kindly for giving the three of us a wonderful experience while vacationing in Tulum … albeit somewhat discomforting to my very weak stomach ... snorkelling in the cenote with Miguel as well as on the diving with Will. For Olivier, it was deeply empowering, for me as well.  Will was so harmoniously calm, a great antidote to the puzzling sense of overwhelming apprehension I was feeling before finally diving into what was, inherently, the complete unknown … Definitely not an easy thing to do both as a mother to Olivier and a person who makes a career of keeping things under control.  ‘Dame Nature’ definitely has her ways of reminding us humans how incredibly powerful, unexpected and stunning she can be… a humbling and quite authentic thing, really.
Once again, with much gratitude… 

Pura Vida

Marie-Josée, Olivier and Philip

Thanks for a great experience

Hi Tim,
First off I wanted to let you know I really enjoyed diving with your facility. Your crew is awesome. It was my fist time diving in the ocean and Deon made me feel comfortable and safe the whole time during my open water course. Diving in the Tulum cenotes is amazing, a Must See!
I do not know if you heard, but I forgot my camera at your facility. Your crew found it and Deon and Halle brought it to my hotel which was 20 minutes away. You don’t often run in to people like that, Thanks everybody.

Awesome diving in Tulum!!

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the personal attention and the diving experience with Maya Diving October 4th and 6th, 2010. Having gone diving with other operators in the Playa Del Carmen area and on Cozumel, we found the dive staff/guides Deon & Halle and support staff Enrique and Eduardo to be most friendly and accomplished, and more importantly that they followed proper diving safety procedures. My wife and I have enjoyed diving in the area and over the years and have encountered many great under sea world creatures of the Caribbean. This year during our diving at Dreams Tulum with Maya Diving, we dove at Tankah where we encountered the “mirror” fish (perhaps silversides). Millions of small 2 inch silvery fish swam liquidly around and through the coral swim-throughs, always with predators like Ceros (Groupers)cruising at their perimeter. At times, we swam with silver clouds of these little fish completely surrounding us, inches from our bodies yet we could never touch a single one of them. As we swam under coral ledges, the streams of mirror fish would either pour by us as if they were a stream of underwater mercury or would engulf us to the point where you could not see a foot. Awesome experience! Would we go back….in a heartbeat!!!!
