I found Troy Ruhr by word of mouth on the island. After meeting him, I felt he was honest and fair and knew the waters of Mexico. I decided to give it a shot. Alejandro and Hugo... read more

I dove two days with Pelagic Divers. First, Alex (Alejandro) is an excellent, very professional divemaster who made the first two dives very enjoyable. My first day out with this operation was great. My second day was a major disappointment. Expecting another great day of diving (and my last dives for this trip), I hopped aboard, only to learn that... More

Alejandro and Hugo picked me and my friend up from La Hach (we were staying at Villablanca). He immediately asked about our experience, comfort level, if... More

I've been diving under many different conditions and with many different outfits over the years, and this has been one of my best experiences. Troy Ruhr, who runs Pelagic, is fair and helpful. The prices are competitive. And the dive masters are just that. Cozumel offers some of the best diving in the world, let alone the Caribbean, and these... More

This was my second trip to Cozumel and second time diving with pelagic ventures. Troy, Alex and Hugo are all courteous, well equipped and made my wife and I feel very comfortable. Personally I prefer diving off the hindsight as it's fast and a fun ride. I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone I know looking to... More

We had an amazing experience diving with Todd, Alex and Hugo.They are friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. From the moment we stepped onto the boat until the second we finished our dives, they attended to every... More

This was our second dive trip to Cozumel and 2nd time with Pelagic Ventures. Troy and his team were recommended to us by our local dive shop and will always be our first call when booking a dive operator in Cozumel. You are in good hands with Dive master Alex and Captain Hugo. No detail is passed by and you... More

We have used Troy and Alex every time that we have explored underwater in Cozumel. We love the smaller boat and personal attention. My wife and I travel to Cozumel by way of cruise ships and have learned that by using Pelagic Ventures we get more bottom time and dive where we want to go. We are planning our next... More

My husband and I worked with Troy on getting PADI open water certified in February. We would highly recommend his approach and teaching methodology. While he was always cognizant of the safety and professionalism necessary to pass this course, he made it extremely fun. And for those who may be reticent of getting certified, we can absolutely say - Troy... More

My husband and I spent 5 days diving with Pelagic Ventures. Alex was an incredible dive master who was able to spot all kinds of sea life for us to see. Alex was very knowledgeable and safety oriented while still ensuring that each dive was fun. We were able to maximize our dive time on each dive with Hugo being... More
