“… Mau and Junior were awesome. The dives were excellent with most of them over 60 mins. Mau leading the dives and showing us Eagle Rays, Sharks, Turtles, Seahorses and Eels. Plus Octopus and other great sights on our night dive. It was all outstanding.”
Greg M, Washington, Jan 2012
“…Maurizio taught me my open water courses and was just great. He took a lot of time to make sure I understood everything and then after a few shore dives we went on some of the most incredible diving. More than I could have ever dreamed of after seeing turtles sharks and all kinds of fish we even saw a eagle ray. Then we went night diving and saw octopus and spotted eels. I am hooked and will be back with a camera on my next trip”

“…I dove with Scuba Mau several times during the last few months, also doing my Advanced Open Water course, and it is by far the friendliest dive shop I’ve ever dove with. All of the dive instructors are excellent divers.”

“Excellent week of diving. Mau went out of his way for me to ensure I had anything I needed. I have travelled all over the world but not often you meet a man as service and customer oriented as Mau. I feel more than comfortable sending my sons for dive training or having Mau aid in the delivery of a full on tech trip.”

“I went diving with Mau and had a great time. Personalized service, very safety conscious, and lots of fun. We started out on small fast boats because that’s what I requested. The seas were a little rough so I inquired about switching to a smoother (but slower) big boat. Mau made it happen and the adventures continued!”

“I have been going to Cozumel over 12 years now and scuba mau is hands down my favorite shop after trying many. They are fun and the staff is skilled at what they do. I am a scuba instructor and on my last trip I watched one of their dive master’s help a nervous diver ease into their first ocean dive so ever body enjoyed their dive. So if it is your first dive or your log book is full you will like scuba mau !”

Just returned from another breath taking diving vacation with Scuba Mau after being certified with them 2014. The entire team and experience was so awesome and look forward to returning again! The expertise and friendliness from the people getting the gear together for us (we rent our gear from Mau), to the captain of the boat taking us to and from the dive sites was superb! Always impressed with the care, safety and attention as well as the expert advice from the dive master on how to improve techniques. Very personable and knowledgable team and the size of the groups small. We were diving with friends that have years of experience who enjoyed the dives as much as us who are beginner vacation divers. Would highly recommend Scuba Mau’s team for all levels… We won’t be diving with any other company!

We have been diving with Mau for years; I can’t imagine diving with another op. The service Mau provides is outstanding! Mau and all the dive masters are safety conscious and do everything they can to make sure you have an enjoyable experience. Mau’s love for the water and sea life show in the pre dive briefings and his instructions about not touching anything and respecting that we are visitors to this magnificent world below.
We like the small groups and the extra attention we receive. We come to Cozumel at least twice a year and stay at the same hotel. Even though, the hotel offers resort credits to dive with them making their dive trips almost free we never consider diving with them; only Scuba Mau. The small boats are comfortable, fast and the captains are top notch.
Our only choice is Scuba Mau, they offer everything from individual service to taking care of your gear. You get on the boat and your gear is there, set up and clean from the previous day’s dive.

We had an amazing week diving with Scuba Mau. Mau did a wonderful job taking care of us. We had so many amazing dive,s and the encounters with sea turtles and sharks were breathtaking. Mau even took me by the hand to show me a small seahorse – I never would have seen it without him. You are taken care of above and below the water. Loved every dive with Mau!!
One diver rented equipment & it was in good condition. We were able to keep our gear at the shop, which was convenient. Crew was kind and helpful. We were able to request dive sites.

I contacted 3 dive shops from Tripadvisor top rankings and finally went with Scuba Mau and I am very happy I did, as I had a wonderful experience. Mau offered the most flexibility and personal attention. I wanted to dive at Punta Sur – Devil’s Throat, and the request was to see my diving level the day before and dive there the next day, which is good as they take your safety and the protection of reefs quite seriously. Mau – the owner is very nice and attentive, makes you feel welcome and makes sure all your needs are accommodated. Leo was our guide, professional, fun, reliable and enthusiastic about showing you the maximum the dive site has to offer, even during the drift dive he would spot tiny creatures and show them to us. My favourite dives were at Devil’s throat and the drift dive where we saw a nurse shark, lobsters, turtles, barracudas and many more. The reefs are beautiful in Cozumel and the island itself is so peaceful and nice, makes you want to stay many more days. Overall, a great team, all of the staff very helpful and professional, great diving sites, wonderful experience! Highly recommended!

Traveled solo through Cozumel looking to get my open water cert and chose Scuba Mau because of their commitment to answering my millions of questions very thoroughly, thoughtfully and with absolute kindness and patience. Staff went well above and beyond to give me the best diving and travel experience possible.
Everyone was very knowledgeable and confident in their skills and able to adapt their teaching styles to the needs of the students. If you get Leo as your instructor consider yourself the luckiest student ever. The staff functions as a family with respect for each other while providing a safe, fun and memorable learning environment for students.
I could not recommend them more highly and will absolutely book with them again on future visits. Day in and day out they made me feel very welcomed, supported and cared for during my stay.
Thank you so much to all the staff at Scuba Mau!! Miss you guys and send much love.

We chose Scuba Mau after careful research online due to great reviews and I must confirm they fully deserve them! First, I appreciate great communication with Dani, with whom I exchanged many emails before our trip. Secondly, Mau helped a lot with commuting to the dive shop which was a bit far from our hotel (big THANKS!! :-)) . And mainly, the dive experience was awesome. The dive spots were perfectly chosen according to our experience and expectations, each presenting different part of the reef and marine life. The equipment was mainly new (my wetsuit was only one week old) and the dive masters and other crew members experienced and helpful. The surface stops were long, on nearby beaches and there was always fruit and cake.
My partner once had a problem with O-ring and had to resign from the first dive. He was provided with an extra diving day and we really appreciate how the situation was handled.
Last, special thanks for great atmosphere to Leo, Mau, Dani and everyone else, it seemed like a couple of days spent with friends. And we absolutely loved the sharks on the last day. 🙂 I definitely recommend!

We spent a while looking for scuba shops in Cozumel for a four day scuba trip. We knew Cozumel was beautiful but didn’t have any friends there or any connections.
Browsing the internet and such we stumbled upon Scuba Mau. Wow! Friendly service, very knowledgable dive masters, flexible options, and a great price.
Two of us just went on six dives total and one guy got his PADI open water certification and all three of us had a great experience. The diving in Cozumel is beautiful no matter how you cut it, but these guys knew where to find wildlife, navigated the reefs, and just gave us a friendly and great experience.
Overall, highly recommend Scuba Mau. Will definitely hit them up again when going diving in Cozumel.
