    I'm looking for some clarification on the status of GeoFish and Abyss Dive Shops. I was by the GeoFish location and it was locked up and empty. I was also told that Abyss was also vacant but did not go by to verify. I was leaving town before I could check it out. Can I get a confirmation on the status of these two operations from someone currently in Playa del Carmen? Are the closures permanent or are the businesses relocating?

    GeoFish was one of my favorite shops even after it changed hands and I know Abyss always had a good reputation.

    GeoFish just sent me an email a few days ago. So I think it is safe to assume they are still in business.

    They are operating via internet only. I am close friends with both shop owners and neither have plans to open a new location.

    Abyss is now a "virtual" dive shop and you can contact Dave, the owner, on Abyss Dive Center | Facebook or Playa del Carmen Diving with The Abyss Dive Center. Even though the physical shop is gone, they still offer all the activities they did before. Think it's actually easier to get in touch with them because any communication goes directly to Dave via cell and he's pretty good at getting back in touch. Geofish also is now virtual, so imagine that they are running the shop in a very similar way.

    Same thing with Geofish. They still provide everything they did before, the only thing is where you meet. I dove with Geofish my last two trips to PDC and am in contact with them about my trip later this year.
