Did another visit of dives with del Mar Aquatics. Under somewhat new management, and really pleasant to deal with. They are pretty laid back, but also very detail oriented. Had Mario and Rene as DM's, on different days of dives (4 days, 2 nights), and they do a consistently great job. Conveniently located on the pier across from Casa del... More

Great job from the Dive Masters (Mario and Rene) for taking care of us on the boat. They made sure my diving experience was a memorable one by taking time to ensure I got some great video while duving. See you next year. It was a blast.

We dived with Del Mar Acquatics in late October, 2014 and my wife, Joanna finished her open water scuba certification with them. They did a fantastic job for us and we highly recommend them!

Really like them. Diane was very sweet and helped resolve a conflict between the hotel and their shop. After a good recommendation from a guest, I went to the shop and talked with them and got a discount on a multiple dive package. The divemasters were all good. They took the time to point out fish and sealife they spotted... More

One of the best dive ops in COZ. Not too expensive, yet not the cheapest. Nice roomy boats with areas to store your gear to keep it dry. Nice big camera tank, big dip tank for masks and gear. The staff bent over backwards to take care of me from lifting my gear in and out of the water to... More

8 dives to reefs off of Cozumel. Saw turtles, sharks, sting ray, barracuda, lobster, crab and fish. Dive masters were cautious and friendly. Boats are big and not crowded. I will dive with them again.

Rene, Francisco, Mario, and company are top notch dive masters on the Cozumel reefs. I just spent a week diving with them and was nothing but impressed with their professionalism and attention to detail throughout my 6 days of diving. My two daughters also dive and I spend a lot of time watching how the dive masters and crew treat... More

We love the drift diving on Cozumel and always dive with Del Mar Aquatics. Gabriel, Rene, Francisco and Mario are the best dive masters on the island, Benito is a great captian and will put you right on top of the reef you are going to. They do not have set sites to dive at, they know the reef and... More

We dove with Rene and Mario in February 2014, on advice of local divers here in Thunder Bay. They did not disappoint! I wanted to see turtles: I saw 10 turtles the first day! Not having dove for 4 years, both divemasters were very attentive to me until I got the hang of my buoyancy again. We dove Palancar Gardens,... More

The boat was clean, the first mate, Francisco, was very helpful to everyone from setting up gear to helping us into and out of the water. Dive masters, Renee', Mario and Gabriel were excellent at keeping an eye on us without hovering, picking dive sites that weren't as crowded and finding lots of marine life for us to photograph.
