In Cozumel Mexico.Opal's Dream Dive Shop. We are still the same small personal shop with a old school feel. Only the name has changed. We use small, fast boats and have great prices! We've changed our location to downtown 95 Av. Between 4th & 6th north. Remember, it's Opals Dream Dive Shop. We offer a nice family feeling and add a lot of fun to your diving vacation!!!!

We dive all over the world, and our favorite place to dive is Cozumel. We have been diving with Julio and Ishi and Opal's Dream since their beginning and can't imagine diving with anyone else when we are in Cozumel. They are both familia. Both Julio and Ishi are so much fun. They are always smiling; especially after a great... More

We have dove with Opal's a couple of times and have never been disappointed, the staff are always considerate and you always feel that safety is number 1 on their list versus just trying to make a fast dollar on their clients. Opal's also is usually for the more experienced divers in lieu of new divers, their smaller fast boats... More

Considerate, careful and dive-wise. Safety is a prime consideration and they are so very accommodating. Great guys too. We work well in English and a smidge of Spanish (but not really necessary!) Will pick you up if within reasonable distance. Ishi and Julio know where to find the special critters; toadfish, seahorses, sleeping sharks, turtles and more!!! The best.....

Opal's is a well run dive shop that provides great service and a fantastic diving experience. Ishi and Julio are easy going but they give you the right amount of attention based on your experience. They're great at finding and spotting things both large and small. Dives last as long as the air, too. We're looking forward to our next... More

Spoke to Ishmael, Dive Master who was very personable, accommodating and reasonably priced, so I booked for 3 adults. Couldn't have been happier. Julio, Instructor was very patient, detailed and explained directions very well. Both men were very easy to understand (to say I speak even a little Spanish would be an overstatement) and always smiling. As in previous reviews,... More

Two friends and I dove with opals dream and we all had an amazing time. Julio was a great guide and was excited to show all the different underwater creatures in Cozumel. He was always on time and loved sharing stories and Mexican knowledge. We had a night dive and we were the only people on the boat. Our friends... More

Alberto and Julio were excellent guides and made our dive trip memorable and safe. We so appreciated the focus on safety and service and making sure our trip was the best possible in every way. We've been diving for over 15 years and this was the best experience we've had with a dive operator so far. This is our third... More

This is the second trip we've made to Cozumel, and the second time we've used Opal's Dream. Although I can no longer consider myself a "new" diver, I couldn't possibly consider myself to be a confident diver. We scheduled five days of dives plus one night dive with Opal's and each was amazing! Each dive started with a safety briefing,... More

Sergio, our instructor showed great patience and care in making sure my boys were safe on their first dive. Opal's was recommended to me my "Beyond Scuba" in Playa. The are excellent!

Aberto and his crew where great! The 2 spots we went snorkeling had a lot of fish and nice coral. We had an amazing day and the rest of the crew who stayed by the port got rained on. Alberto took us to spots away from the storm and we thank him for an amazing time!
