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)
If you didn't dive for more than one year, for your own safety it's required to do a shallow water refresher beach dive with one of our instructors. (3:00 pm every day, one night basic dorm accommodation is included)

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.
4What is the experience / certification level of the other divers?
We will know the answer to this question on the morning of the trip when everyone else signed up. What is important to know, that in Cozumel the currents can be strong and on most of the dive sites if you go deeper than 20 meters / 80 feet, all you can see is sand, so deep dives are mostly pointless on our reefs. We don't separate the divers according to their experience level, OWD divers with 4 dives are many times are much better divers than a very experienced diver with 600 logged dives. After leading tens of thousands of divers in Cozumel we learned that log books and certification cards do not make anyone a good or bad diver. If you are a confident, experienced diver with advanced certification card, you can be part of the group slighly deeper, with a dive buddy with similar to you. Please listen to our detailed briefing what we will send you before the dives for more details.
