Scuba Diving trips in the Cozumel National Marine ParkWe conduct daily boat dive trips from our downtown Dive Resort to the jaw-dropping reefs of the Cozumel National Marine Park. The group has plenty of options to choose from, with reefs stretching 25 km along the southwestern side of the island. Our big boats have sundeck, shade, and head which provides more comfort, meanwhile, fast boats allows us to reduce the time spent by traveling and use your vacation time more effectively. You can sign up online on our website, or in person at the reception. (subject to availability)
1How can I receive my gratis dorm night?
This is a guest promotion, so, first of all, you need to become our guest with a confirmed and fully paid non-refundable reservation. After this, please follow the instructions in the confirmation e-mail and use the promo code provided to receive your free nights. You can book any type of accommodation, we will deduct the price of a basic dorm from your diving balance. With this trip, you can receive 1 night in a basic dorm as a gift, or the value of this will be deducted from your full diving balance if you stay in a higher category dorm or in a private room.
2Which dive sites you will go tomorrow?
It's up to you. We can not tell and never set up any plans in advance. It's always a group decision, made on board by you, together with the other divers on board. Your safety is our first priority, our experienced captains and divemasters will also consider current, wind and wave conditions.
3How many divers are on the boat?
The different boats we share with other dive shops have 6-20 seats, however, we split the divers into several independent groups, and the group size never exceeds 6 divers per divemaster. When we have any courses running on our boats, we provide instructors to supervise dive students and divemasters to guide certified divers. Our aim is to offer our dive trips at an affordable price level, therefore we rent bigger boats in association with other dive shops to reduce not just the cost per head but the carbon footprint as well.
