We had an excellent day diving in Cozumel with Playa Scuba. They take safety very seriously and paired us with an extremely strong/experienced person to lead the dives. It was a great day. I recommend Claus and the team highly and look forward to diving with them again the next time I am in the area.

For the confined water portion, it was just us and our instructor, Nicky. We loved having the individualized attention, and she truly took her time with us in order to ensure that we were confident in all... More

We got outfitted with some really solid gear, loaded up the truck and then headed out to the cenotes. I did one dive in "the pit" and three different dives in "dos ojos", All the dives were fantastic and the... More
