We just finished our 7th time diving with Buena Ventura Diving since 2000 and as usual, we were treated like royalty. Victor and Jorge have always been a fantastic team to dive with due to the care they provide the moment we step on the boat and their knowledge of the entire reef system. One of the best things about... More

This is my 2nd time diving with Buena Ventura. This is a top-notch dive operation. For 6 days, I was diving with my x (obviously together at the time), 2 dives per day. Victor and Jorge made us feel welcome and comfortable. They took really good care of our brand new dive gear too! They kept the gear all week... More

I have been diving with Buena Ventura for a long time. I feel safe and taken care of when I dive with them. The fact that they let you do your own thing and don't put a cap on how long you stay down is priceless. So I invited two friends to join me for 5 days of diving. We... More

I've been diving with Ventura for 20+ years and wouldn't dive with anyone else in Cozumel. On a recent trip, they set our 10 year old up with a fabulous instructor to get Padi junior certified and then our family got to do the most amazing diving together. Jorge and Victor are simply awesome. We are already booking our trip... More

Two amazing days of diving with Jorge and Victor. Buena Ventura is truly a wonderful small dive company, perfect boat for experienced divers. Jorge was able to plan our dives so we could dive 8 tanks in two days. Can't thank Ventura and Heidi enough for another wonderful diving experience.

We were in Cozumel with a group of 5 experienced divers and had a great time with Victor and Jorge. Great service, found great dive sites even in less than perfect weather, flexible, on time. They took great care of us and our equipment. Wouldn't dive with anyone else on the island. Highly recommended.

Reading a lot of negative reviews about cruise ship dive operators in Cozumel I decided to book something on my own for a cruise we were taking in February 2013. Based largely on the information I obtained from tripadvisor I decided to contact Buena Ventura Diving and we had a terrific experience. For our cruise this year, January 2014, I... More

This was my 2nd time diving with Jorge and Victor in Cozumel, although other family and friends have been diving with them multiple times…as they will use no other dive company in Cozumel. Jorge is a knowledgable, safe, friendly and proficient diver. Jorge provides a great dive briefing, information about the dive site and provides the opportunity for questions or... More

Why? Because they know me, know how I dive, and for the most part let me dive my dive. VIctor is one of the best 'captains' and Jorge is a great dive master. Small fast boat and will go where the customers want (weather permitting.)

I have been to Cozumel 5 or 6 times and I have dived with Buena Ventura 4 times. The entire crew is absolutely fantastic! I dived with them when I had 6 dives and again with a couple hundred dives and they are one of the best dive companies I have ever been with. No matter your skill level, they... More
