"We recently had a Discover Scuba at Dreamtime through Carnival. I just wanted to write and say thank you so much to Mike .. had it not been for him, I would have gotten back in the boat and not done the dive. I had a panic attack getting in the water, and then again when we first went under. Mike was awesome at calming me down and stayed by my side the whole dive. I really appreciated the time he took to make sure that I was comfortable, and made the experience one I truly will never forget! My husband is PADI deep water certified, and now after this experience my daughter wants to get certified as well. Thanks again!" -Leigh-Anne

 

"Geoff had a wonderful day diving with you - and we had a great time in Costa Maya." -Gay

 

"Dreamtime diving was really great. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to go scuba diving. You guys made that possible and made my day absolutely wonderful. A special thanks to Malcolm who showed us the way through the reef. We saw small fish, large fish, a little eel and a big Moray eel. I saw conch shells leaving a trail in the sand and a school of small barracuda. Thank you so much!" -Graydon

 

"We had a fantastic time diving in Costa Maya with Dreamtime Dive Resort! Our recent experience was unforgettable -- our guide Malcolm was excellent and calmed any fears we had about diving in the open water. The reef was beautiful and getting to see a Moray eel, crabs, and tropical fish was awesome! The entire staff couldn't have been more professional or friendly. We would absolutely book another dive with Dreamtime in the future and will definitely recommend to friends!" -Paul

 

"I had the pleasure of a few great dives with the Dreamtime Dive Resort over vacation in November 2014. The crew and divemasters, especially Loli, were fantastic. I would recommend them highly if you have a chance to visit." -Joe

 

"I had a wonderful time and enjoyed diving with you and your staff very much.  My wife and I are looking forward to diving with your operation again.  Thanks again for a wonderful dive experience and I’ll see you in November." -Douglas

 

"Met Amber & Andrew with Dreamtime Dive Resort on our Carnival Conquest shore excursion. Andrew & his group took us on a fantastic dive around & thru the barrier reef site. We'd love to visit & dive there again. If your on a cruise or if you'd rather make a direct trip, give them a visit. Andrew is based on site & Amber is based in Florida, but either can help you plan a great dive trip." -Zeke & Linda

 

"Just finished a 7 day cruise and the last stop was Costa Maya. Booked the scuba trip through cruise line and was thoroughly impressed with the diving operations of Dreamtime and the staff. I (Andy - PADI Instructor) have been diving for nearly 25 years and I will definitely be recommending this dive operations and this diving site. Costa Maya reefs are fantastic and the dive shop and crew are great to dive with. My wife and I will definitely be back to experience more than the 2 tank dive offered. Full service, laid back and great people - you all made the day a fantastic experience!" -Andy & Anita

 

"Just wanted to say how much we appreciated and enjoyed all the Mahahual Dreamtime staff." -Ed and Jeff 

 

"The reef was awesome! There is so much to look at and explore. Our master diver was Greg (dreadlocks guy). He took good care of us and made sure we did not miss any of those hidden creatures. Costa Maya is for certain still a very undeveloped Mexican town with access to an excellent diving environment. We were there with two cruise ships, but I bet once they leave Costa Maya is very quiet." -Pete

 

"Dove with this group on Christmas week. Very cool experience. Best visability of the entire trip that included Roatan and Belize. Great crew. Awesome reefs!!!" -John

 

"Don't go there!! The diving is fantastic and Dreamtime is a great operator. Don't go because I want to keep this secret paradise for myself. Well, OK, go, but be nice to the all of the marine life so it will all be happy to see me again. The south part of the Chincharro Bank is worth the trip if you can get it set up. The whole Costa Maya is some of my favorite diving in the world. One day a manatee and calf cruised by. The surprises never end diving here. Rays, sharks, crabs, lobsters, sponges, turtles, .........................Oh MY!" -Tom

"I wanted to take the time to thank you for the incredible experience you gave my husband and I at our 2 tank dive last week!  From our guide (sorry, I can't remember his name, but he was adorable with curly hair!,) to our divemasters Olivia and Renee, to our underwater paparazzi, we were completely overwhelmed at the professional service from start to finish.  A++! Our Costa Maya dive with DreamTime is our all-time favorite dive we've done! We will 100% be back! Thanks again!" -Emily and Danny  (Port Orange, Florida)

 

"We just want to drop you a note to say how wonderful our vacation was in Mahahual, thanks to all your hard work during our stay.  The St. Croix Scuba crew enjoyed all the adventures you arranged for us: diving uncharted coral reefs, exploring a Cenote, swimming with dolphins, visiting Mayan ruins and boating up a jungle river.   We appreciate the huge effort it took for you to coordinate our diving experiences.  When the weather did not cooperate, you came up with fun  alternatives to suit everyone’s tastes.  We loved meeting all of you and hope we will get a chance to spend time with Dreamtime Diving again."-St Croix Scuba

 

"Had the time of my life... They organize everything, make sure you always have something fun to do. These guys are the best and very thorough as well as PADI safe... Loved the reefs I saw and they know the best places to take you. They take care of all your equipment, from making sure it is all there before your dive and maintaining it after your dive... Amazing experience." -Ann

“Thank you! WE had a wonderful experience and memories for a lifetime. It was special for all of our group to share our experiences with you! Could not have been any more perfect!”- David & Nina

 

“We had a great time and the best instructor I could of hoped for my son and my wife !!!! great job. As you know Maria went through the patience of 2 dive masters in not being able to take her mask off under water and you did it. After our arrival and seeing the Hurricane still churning water, it was so great the way Lauren handled my plans change, I like to be flexible and have no strings attached, moving the dive to after the ruins etc…would of only been possible if she helped coordinate the whole thing and you know what VIVA Mexico, that is why I like to go to remote places were you are still treated as an individual and not a number.” -Win

 

“Just wanted to say that I enjoyed the dive today.  You really have a good team working for you there.  Victor and Peter were especially helpful!  Hope to see you all again.” -Jeff

 

“It's because of the fabulous time we had with Oscar and the entire crew, Jeff and I are now enrolled in the PADI Open Water Dive Course here in our local community.  At some point in our lives, we will be back to dive with the DreamTime Diving team!  In addition, we will definately recommend your facilities and service to others looking for a great time in Mahahual.” -Karen

 

“Had a great 2 tank dive in July; service was great, equipment top knotch, everything clean & orderly. I'll be back!” -Liz

 

“We just wanted to let you all know what a fantastic time we all had! Thanks for taking such good care of us. David, you did a great job with our classes. You made it easy and a lot of fun too. We learned so much. Thanks to Victor too for arranging and going with us to Chinchorro Banks. It was a great day!!! We will definitely be back, hopefully very soon! Thanks again!”-Deanna

"We had a FABULOUS experience and are  proud to be certified divers now.  Our instructor, Victor Rosales, was very kind, patient and professional. It took four days for us aging adults to pass all the confined and open water tests, but by gosh, we did it!  What a high to achieve this goal on my 60th birthday.  The reef was spectacular. I was particularly entrances with the coral, but we also saw loggerhead turtles, a spotted eagle ray, many diverse fish species, and one day we even swam with 14 joyful dolfins!  You have a great team in Mahahual. Everyone made us feel welcome, and I was impressed by the way they all pitched in every time the boat came in. We were lucky to be there for the Lionfish Fiesta, and enjoyed trying all the different recipes to encourage consumption of this invasive species. It was delicious, and I think it's great that Dreamtime is providing leadership in the community to help combat invasive species and preserve local biodiversity.  Best regards, and thank you for a wonderful, memorable trip!" --Kerry Britton

They were very friendly had a great staff of people to make everyone feel very comfortable. They took us to places that had lots of coral and great fishes. great experince!!!! See you next time for sure!"
--Carla, Celebration, Florida
 
 
'' On 3/16/2012 I had a wonderful dive with the assistance of your company and Norweigan Cruise line. It was definitely one of the better dives I have had; your people were excellent and everything was taken care of beautifully.  Unfortunately I had such a good time that I forgot to have the divemaster sign off on my dive log...."
-- Michael Pressman

"My two sons and I could not have asked for a better experience than we had with your operation. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The dive master was very professional and we always felt as if we were in good hands. The dive itself was beautiful with a wide array of marine life including huge lobster and sea turtles. We dove in Roatan Honduras the next day and it was beautiful, but I enjoyed my Dream Time better. Thanks for the great experience."
--Alan Stephenson, Calhoun, LA
 
 
"My wife and I recently took a cruise on the NCL Spirit (May 15-22). We dove 3 of the 4 ports--using Dreamtime in Costa Maya. Hands down you were the best outfit we dove with. The staff was completely awesome. Zoe, Lauren, Ed and the rest of the staff and dive masters we talked to and interacted with were helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. I'd highly recommend you guys and I hope we can make it back. Thanks again!" --Patrick & Theresa

--Dustin Thompson, Paintsville, KY
 
 
"I went on a discover scuba dive with these guys in late July. They were truly great and made me feel very comfortable.

I am now finishing up my AOW and would love to go back and dive here again." --Dan, Statesboro, GA
 
 
"Learning to scuba dive has been an amazing experience!  Special thanks to Kimberlie Dufresne - the best instructor ever, and Ed, Ben, Ash, Nick, Edgar and Dani and the rest of the team at Dreamtime Dive Centre.  What a great organization.  We will see you again, and cannot thank you enough for making our time in Mahahual so special!"
--Nancy Clegg, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
 
 
"Just back from vacation today and wanted to thank you again for our certification dives #1 and #2.  We did finish our 3rd and 4th dives in Roatan.  The dive master who worked with us was a woman and was a clone of Ed!  Very detailed, organized, and made you sure you knew what you were doing before approving a skill.  She told us that she was very impressed with our skills and it was apparent that we had good prior instruction!  Thanks again for making our time very enjoyable!" --Phil Nauman, Northbrook, IL

"Just got back from a cruise that included Porta Costa Maya, and took the dive excursion through the ship. I was a little apprehensive about the facilities and the overall diving since this area of Mexico is really rather undeveloped. The ride to the dive shop did little to dissuede those concerns, but the minute we stopped at the shop, we were met by a gang of eager folks who were took great care of us and out gear. This staff was as good or better than any I have worked with in the Caribbean and Bahamas, including Caymans, Cozumel, Roatan, Belize or Jamacia. The reefs and marine life rival anything I have seen in the above ports, losing out by a small margin (IMHO) to the reefs at Anthonys Key in Roatan. Overall the folks were friendly, ultra helpful and knowledgeable. I am looking forward to diving with them again this fall on another cruise." --Bill Thomas, Ocala, FL
 
 
"We really enjoyed diving with you once again last Friday. The young ladies leading the dives were terrific as was your entire crew and staff. We will be sure and tell our diving friends, Holland America and new scuba students. I used my own mouth piece on your regulator and may have inadvertently run off with yours I took off your regulator. Are you missing one? If so, let me know and I'll mail it back to you. If not, it most likely came from Don Fosters in Grand Cayman the day before. Thanks again, Captain Jim!" --Captain Jim Davis
 
 
"I would like to thank Daniel Instr staff (from Argentina) for looking after me while diving with you last Thursday 3/17 AM excursion from NCL Pearl. I became seasick with vomiting during surface interval and Daniel kept a close eye on me during second dive. Sorry about the sickness in hind sight i would have taken Draimene that morning, but I am mainly a fresh water shore diver. Thanks again to this Dive Professional, very much enjoyed seeing your Reef and Aquatic life in Costa Maya. Also the young lady that was on the Bus from ship to shop gave a very nice briefing of area. Thank you." --Bill Walsh, Roanoke, VA
 
 
"I just want to thank you guys for the opportunity you gave me to try scuba diving for the first time. Ed, thank you for all the individual help and patience you showed while I was panicking. My family told me not to give up on it but to try getting lessons in a swimming pool first where I would feel more comfortable. Later on in the cruise I went snorkeling and was able to see a lot of sea life that I may have missed because I was so intent on not drowning when I was with you all! Thanks again."
--Jeanne Burnham
 
 
"I did the "Discover Scuba" excursion.  I was so excited to get into the water...until I realized I would be falling backward off the side of the boat!  I finally went and it was a breeze!  The instructors were patient while I mastered the technique of getting the water out of my mask.  From then on it was amazing!  I am so proud of myself (I'm a grandmom) for accomplishing the dive.  I can't wait to have the opportunity to dive again.  Thanks Dreamtime!"
--Linda, Maple Shade, NJ
 
 
"We had a great time on our recent cruise on the Epic.  A highlight was certainly the scuba dive.  You did a great job on the vidoe.  It was money well spent.  We'll be enjoying it for some time to come." --Kirk Lindberg
 
 
--Sealutter, San Francisco, CA
 
"Best dive crew ever! EVERYONE at Dreamtime Diving was fantastic. Hannah and Orelie a personal thank you to you ladies. What can we say we've never been treated better by a dive crew, we loved diving with you guys, thank you so much. We will be back to see you soon." --Paul & Tracy, Phoenix, AZ
 
 
"Dreamtime Diving is a very professional dive op.  They were very efficient, prompt, and safety conscious.  The staff briefings were complete and boats were well equipped for diving and safety.  I have 500+ dives and would definitely use/recommend them.  We had a great dive experience!"  --Harry Miller
 
 
“…Just finished 7 days of diving in Mahahual, and the diving was great. I and my daughter were diving with Dream Time Diving, very friendly and capable people. Most days it was 2 divers per DM so the dives are adjusted to your experience and ability level. We stayed at Posada de los 40 Canones. Also did the trip to Chinchorro Banks, dolphins, some nurse sharks, turtles and on the small caye we stopped at, crocodiles,a trip not to be missed. On the local reef, lots of fine coral and sealife. Very laid back, Dive Shop is very "full service", not much to do if you are not diving. You do need to rent a car to get there from Cancun, but you can drive to a number of Mayan Ruins that are worth seeing…!”
"I took part in the Discover Scuba excursion while on a cruise on the Carnival Dream on May 20 and would like to extend a special thank you to all of the staff at Dreamtime.  This was my first attempt at scuba diving and at first I wanted to quit but with encouragement from the instructors I completed the dive and enjoyed it very much.  Kim and the other instructor (I do not remember his name) went the extra mile to help me.  I will never forget the kindness shown me during my time with you.   I hope to scuba dive again and have been checking on locations in this area where I can get certified.  If I do not get certified I feel sure I will scuba dive again on future cruises."
"We had the best time ever taking your two tank scuba trip on April 2nd. My wife, son and I do not dive very much and you guys made us feel comfortable and at home. The ride to the shop, the equipment selection and our wonderful guide Kimberly was all perfect. I was considering giving up diving until this outing, due to your expert staff we will continue to dive for years to come." --Mark Feaster, Edinburg, VA
