I'm glad I did my IDC

I'm glad I did my IDC with Go PRO Playa because I was crossing over from another agency and needed time to learn "the PADI language". I liked having a longer class time and Anders is very patient. We had an international group with 5 nationalities and as many languages. We all worked together as a group to learn the material and master our craft. They even helped me find affordable housing. We did our IE in a cenote which was beautiful. When we were finished we got to dive with the Bull sharks.
I have already recommended Go PRO Playa to other people.

IDC Challenging & Rewarding

I had the opportunity to advance my diving career with Go Pro Playa / Mexico Blue Dream. It was very challenging, yet rewarding. Anders and his team were very helpful, and knowledgeable. They took the time to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses from the class, and work on everyone's individual weaknesses. I learned so much from this IDC. When I continue my education, I will definitely go with Go Pro Playa!!! Incredible!!!!!

Awesome IDC!!!!

I am happy to say I am a new Open Water Scuba Instructor. PO, Simon, Anders and Maira made of the IDC a great experience, they are great teachers, patient, professional and always raising the bar to help you get the best out of you.
I would definetely recommend anyone having their IDC (or any other course) with this group of professionals because they are great individuals ready to share their knowledge and experience with you.

Simply the best

It doesn't matter what level you are or you want to reach you have to choose the right instructor to get to your goal. For having done my IDC with Anders and GoPro Playa last year, I knew since then that If I ever had to do any other diving course in the future that it would be with him again.

This year I got the opportunity to do my TDI (Diving in overhead environments) "Full cave” course with Anders and the facilities of Mexico Blue Dream. There’s absolutely no half measure in the way he teaches and leaves no doubt about if you’re learning the right way. In the field of diving where standards and security are extremely important, this team makes sure that everything is respected and done properly. I should also mention that they provide gear, which is of excellent quality, for the course and also for extra training if needed.

Thanks to all the team, it has been literally an honor to learn with all of you.

Professional and passionate.

If you're looking for an IDC with fun and quality, this is the place for you.
I used to work in the diving business for a while and had seen some IDCs around, i must say i made the best decision to do it with Go Pro Playa.
The course is very well-organized, from day 1 to the end. Small group, with many assistance, good facilities (classroom, pool, dive gears,..)
Anders is the CD and Simon is the SI. And Anders was always in direct supervision at all time :) They're both very knowledgable and patience

magic place and perfect people

I would like thank you so much for help, attention and good advises during my course IDC and then MSDT prep to all staff. Anders is the best Instructor what I know, with a lot of patience and huge knowledge. I'm really glad have this opportunity to pass my courses with him, Simon and Maira. And in this friendly, magic place: Playa del Carmen, next to Caribean Sea, wonderful Cenotes, Cancun, Cozumel, with a lots of dives with turtles, sharks, tropical fish ... all what you wish :) Hope I will back there some day for more education and training and always will recommend GoPro Playa to all who look for quality time.

IDC Course

I completed my IDC course with GoPro Playa in September 2014. This was such an interesting, fun course and I learned so much. A massive thanks to Anders of GoPro Playa. Anders is patient, kind and incredibly knowledgeable. He goes above and beyond to help everyone and he is everything you want in a teacher and mentor! Huuuge thanks goes also to Simon and Maira! These two helped us all out so much and gave us really good feedback and tips! I really appreciate all you have done , and can not thank you enough! The whole team at GoPro and Mexico Blue dream are incredible. I would definitely recommend coming here to learn. I know, (well, I hope), to be back to continue learning with GoPro Playa!

Cenote are awesome with Anders

We are not super hard core scuba enthusiast but we refered from and friend of a friend about Anders. We had been diving for a week in Cozumel and began to shake off our cobwebs there. We were very nervous about cenote diving but Ander's calm and profession nature allowed us to have the absolute best dive we have done in our lives. At the cenote we saw lots of others dive masters at the cenote site. They all looked very experienced but Andrers was amazing at makes us feel comfortable with diving in an unusual place very quickly while not making us feel rushed. I have to say the professionalism and the amount of information that Anders share with us about the history of the cenotes was incredible. His prices were very reasonable and we will definitely be back and are excited to dive with him again

Awesome Group of Instructors

After debating whether or not I wanted to become an instructor before I left Mexico, I finally decided to do the June 2014 IDC. I could not have been happier with my decision, as all of the staff were extremely helpful and insightful. Anders, PO, and Maira were always available to offer their advice and guidance in all aspects of the course (theory, practical exercises, and presentations). Additionally, the smaller class size ensured that everyone was able to get the attention they needed.



I had an amazing two weeks of fun and learning with Go Pro Playa and would recommend them to anyone considering taking the IDC in Playa del Carmen.
