Have you ever wondered what is beneath the waves?

What it is like to breathe underwater?

If you wish to try scuba diving but are not ready to take the course or just have an afternoon to enjoy, then the Discover Scuba Diving is for you. This quick and easy introduction to scuba diving will take you to some of our most famous sites in Isla Mujeres. A perfect place to take your first “plunge” with ideal conditions for making this a dive a life-changing experience.

At 10mt/33ft depth, visibility up to 30mt/100ft visibility and an average water temperature of 27ºc/80ºf the Manchones National Park offers the most incredible conditions for the new diver.

Your first dive will be at the famous MUSA where you can see over 400 statues sunk for diving purposes.

Then your second dive, when you are more comfortable and ready to dive a reef, will be on the magnificent Manchones Reef where it is not uncommon to see turtles, rays, eels, and a huge variety of marine life.


No prior experience with scuba diving is required.

if your time is limited and you wish to try scuba diving before committing to a complete course, then the PADI Discover Scuba Diver is perfect for you

We leave nearly daily to the Underwater Museum MUSA and Manchones National natural reef (weather permitting)

We start with a short video then your PADI instructor will show and explain how the equipment works. Then a confined water session to teach you important safety skills to ensure that you can safely go on your first open water dives

At 1.30 pm the boat leaves to take you to the 2 dive sites where each dive has a maximum of 45 minutes (you will be so excited and absorbed by the beauty that it will feel like 10). Your instructor is with you every step of the way to guide you and hold your hand (literally if you need). The return time is around 5 pm.




open water dive sites

All 4 Open Water dives will take place in

the Underwater Museum of Art MUSA and

the Manchones natural reef.



You learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. For your open water dive, you’ll practice a few more skills in shallow water to prepare for your adventure. Get ready to:

  • Go over the scuba equipment you use to dive and how easy it is to move around underwater with your gear.

  • Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater.

  • Learn the key skills that you’ll use during every scuba dive.

  • Have fun swimming around and exploring.

  • Hear about becoming a certified diver through the PADI Open Water Diver course.
