The best dive shop on Cozumel, even with the changes that they are made it, we believe is a good challenge for all the staff, go, go boys (mariano, walter, epido, pollo, mike, nemo, gilber , newbies).... , for all of them, my best wishes....I'll be back for diving.

My wife and I have been diving with Aqua Safari for the past the past 12 years. The first 11 years were spectacular. Then, the owner sold the business to Cozumel Palace. Mr. Horn who built this business over decades and worked 7 days a week probably decided it was time to retire. Mr. Horn is a great success and... More

I ended up diving with this group because my usual dive company, Aldora Divers were fully booked. What a night and day difference between Aldora and Aqua Safari. I ended up on a boat that went to Paradise reef. Shallow not very interesting reef that dive companies close to town go to because it has easy access. Walter The DM... More

We have dove this shop for years and have made all these dm our personal friends. As in the past we made our reservations as we left for the following year only to find out that we had been cancelled to make room for Cozumel palace guests. They now over fill the boats or have 16/18 people on one 5/6... More

We stayed at the Cozumel Palace in February and used (tried to use) our resort credits to dive with the onsite dive op - Aqua Safari. I did a refresher (could not use resort credits for it) and my instructor was great. An older gentleman that spoke good English (never did get his name). He put me through my skills... More

The Aqua Safari team is a great bunch of guys. DM's are very experienced and knowledgeable. Boat crew is friendly and helpful. They picked us up right on the dock at the resort, very convenient. The only small complaint we would have is that the boats are old and slow so it takes at least an hour to get to... More

The folks in the shop and on the boats were great. Very helpful and professional. A special thanks to Georgine for all her help. Also great to have a photographer on board. The pictures are reasonably priced and are really great. Thx--Cyzia. Dive sites were great. DM showed us all sorts of stuff. Strongly recommend the night dives. We've never... More

Made a quick getaway (3 days) to Mexico for some relaxation and mas diving. Made two Nitro dives with Aqua. Convenient pick up at my hotel dock and on time! They have been around while and still offer a nice boat and good diving service. I rented everything with no problems. First dive was Palancar (good to see it coming... More

Friendly, knowledgeable dive master, boat Capitan and crew, but don't expect the DM to sign your book. You can get a stamp from the dive shop, but couldn't get a signature in my log book, so dives didn’t count toward any advanced certification. Cozumel Palace usually offers resort credits with your stay that can be applied to cost of diving.... More

Had a great time with the dive crew. The girl taking our photos was awesome as well. Crisp clean shots and we didnt worry about having to take our own camera, every penny worth it to have her tag along.Wish we could have stayed out longer, cant wait to go back.
