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. Cesar,... More

Had really great Dive Masters Paulino & Jorge. Once they saw you were experienced divers they allowed you to do your own thing and they focused on the beginners. Boat staff was very helpful and had plenty of water and snacks on board for your surface interval. I had a leaking valve and quickly swapped out my tank for my... More

I will start off by saying that the dives we went on here were some of the best I've ever been on. I've only been diving for 3 years and at that only about once a year and only am an open water certified diver. I would say that the BCD's and regulators they rented us were pretty good. Not... More

We have used DMA for 4 years now and have never been disappointed with the service. Juan is great at teaching techniques and naming fish. Mario takes pride in finding marine life and making sure you get a great picture of it, especially sea-horses. Mario can also blow the coolest bubble rings!!. Renee (Manamana-Muppets theme song) is VERY serious but... More
