What our customers say about us!

I did my Full Cave Training with Erik and it was as intense as it was rewarding. Do not expect Erik to take it easy on you. As he puts it, "As tough as he is, the caves can be tougher if you make a serious mistake". This course has changed my perspective on diving for the better, and has made me a much better diver. I have been diving for over 20 years, I am a technical diving instructor and Erik's expertise opened my eyes to a whole other world. I will be back to continue my training and do many more cave dives with him. I recommend him and Beyond Diving 100%.

Been doing some cenote diving with Erik and he is an awesome guide. He really knows these caverns (and it seems the caves well beyond) and E&S have looked after us brilliantly. Can’t be faulted!!

I can't say enough good things about this shop. I did my SDI Open Water certification and a Marine Ecosystem Awareness course with Erik here in Playa at the end of March. Erik is a phenomenal instructor; I've never felt so confident as I do now that I've really learned from the best.
Sandra is also just the sweetest lady and always had a smile on her face.
They're an incredible team and I promise that no one would be disappointed in doing any diving with this shop.

I love the way this shop works, teaching us and promoting environmental awareness and sustainability to protect these precious areas for others to enjoy.
