I've been diving over 30 years and have been to Cozumel at least a dozen times, however, it's been about 20 years since my last visit. My buddy and I chose Aldora on a friend's recommendation. They were absolutely first rate. We dove Maracaibo and Punta Sur, sites which are rarely visited by other operators since they're so far south. Our divemasters were Dario, Ricardo, Edgar, Ali and Adrianne over the 6 days we dove with them. The dives were really well organized, all the DMs took care to find and point out critters for us and lead us through some really amazing swim throughs. At the start of the dives, the DM scouted out the site to make sure that visibility was good and the currents, while strong, not ridiculous, although there were a couple of dives where the currents were ripping. But, this is Cozumel right? Our surface intervals were spent on Playa Palancar were we had lunch and socialized with the other divers.
On a last minute notice, Julian arranged a whale shark tour to Isla Mujeres for us with Jullie who's a local free dive and scuba instructor. She also happens to be the mermaid passengers on the Atlantis submarine see. She met us at the ferry and accompanied us all the way to the boat operator, Abel and his wife, where she was our in water guide. We had a fantastic day snorkeling with dozens of whale sharks and manta rays. While the diving was excellent, this day of snorkeling with the ocean's largest fish proved to be the highlight of our trip. I would recommend Aldora without reservations. They are awesome!
