My partner and I signed up for the AOWD and 2-tank boat dives. Victor was a great boat captain and Ray and Bletten were fantastic instructors. I researched a lot of scuba companies prior to departure, and Henry was remarkably polite and informative.
We hit rough weather during our week in Cozumel and had a few of our dives cancelled, but Henry kept in constant contact and immediately re-scheduled us on the next available boat. They even drove us back to our hotel down the street when they couldn't enter the pier due to the choppy waters. One of the boats was delayed for our night dive, and as a result, the instructor made the call to cancel it, which was fair, because you never want to dive when visibility and weather are poor, especially for a night dive.
The equipment is in great condition, the ratio was 1 instructor for 2 divers, so we felt safe throughout.

You truly feel like you're part of the Salty Endeavour family and our boat trips were always fun, even when Baby Shark was sung throughout the day (sorry, Ray). Our diving skills improved tremendously and we would definitely be back to dive with Salty Endeavours.

We chartered a boat for a mixed group of snorkelers and divers as a part of a family cruise with one stop in Cozumel. The boat was waiting for us at the pier when we arrived. The snorkelers in the group were nervous having never snorkeled off a boat in the ocean before, but, the snorkeling guide, Frida, was so confidence inspiring, everyone participated and felt safe and well protected in and out of the water.

Running a mixed group of divers and snorkelers is challenging. The current at depth is very different than the current on the surface. However, Alex, the dive guide, and captain Ichi kept the groups together very well providing excellent views of the reef to everyone.

We highly recommend Salty Endeavors. This wasn't my first time diving with them and it won't be my last.

Highly recommend Salty Endeavors and their team!
My partner and I are both scuba instructors and went for our first time to Mexico. He knows Jose (Mexi) so we organised our dives with the diving centre where he works.
We did 5 dives with them (Paso del Cedral, Palancar Caves, Colombia Deep, San Clemente for macro photos and Yucab as a night dive) and always with Jose as our guide!
Jose was a perfect guide! So passionate about the dives in Cozumel and he dealt with some situations/problems underwater and at the surface in a great and really professional way!
We had some great conversation and laughs on the boat with him and the other divers. We got some really great and detailed briefings about every dives and safety rules.
All the dives were drift dives, full of marine life everywhere and full of colours and corals!! We loved the diving on Cozumel so much!!
When doing the double dives we had snacks, fruit and water included in the excursion.
We dived with aluminium 11lt tanks, always filled 210/220 bar. We brought our own full equipment and dived with shorty (water temp was 29°C) . If you dive multiple days they keep your equipment and when they pick you up at one of the piers of cozumel you have everything there on the boat ready for you! Such a great service!
If we would have to say something is just that... our holiday was too short and we would have liked to dive more there! :D
We are looking forward to diving there again and it would be with Jose and Salty Endeavors for sure! :)

Awesome night dive. I reached out to the folks at Salty endeavors and they were the only operator willing to do a night dive with just two divers. Needless to say they picked me up in town and the fun was on! Alex was the dive master who provided us with a precise briefing and he couldn’t have been more professional. The boat captain was friendly and awesome although I forget his name- sorry. During the dive the other diver surfaced early and Alex and I finished the dive together for a total dive time of an hour. Critter count was 3 lobsters, 2 king crabs, 1 turtle and 10-12 octopus a personal record. And the usual assortment of reef fish. In sum it was the best night dive I’ve ever done. Accommodating, friendly, professional and safe I’d recommend them to any divers in Cozumel.

Hi Jeff. Thanks for your review. We have a simple policy that if people want to go diving, we will take them. Glad we were able to work out a night dive for you and the dive buddy and that it turned out being an excellent dive as well!

If you are going to Cozumel to dive, I highly recommend Salty Endeavors. Their staff is top-notch, the dive groups are small, and their boats are fast. We loved diving with Alex, Jose, and Eduardo. They know all of the dive sites and know where to find all types of marine life. Great communication before, during, and after each dive. Most importantly, we always felt safe diving with them.

This is a top notch dive shop! Very safety conscious and let you dive a full hour+. They do not babysit you, so you need to be responsible for your dive time. It's your fault if you dive over your computer's limits and if you're during a lot of diving upgrade to the nitrox so you can continue to dive the full time. They offer no more than 8 divers and try to get you to sites that interest you.

Will dive with again. They are responsive, stress free, on time and top notch.

I really appreciate small dive operations that practice good safe diving. These guys were great. They had all our equipment ready to go and picked us up from the hotel pier. Gave us all the information we needed as we went to our dive site and made sure we knew how they operated and where we were going. I felt completely safe diving with these dive masters. We had several and all were very good. We mostly spent time with Eduardo and he was amazing. He was incredibly patient with 7 of us and all with different diving skills. He managed the troubled diver and the new divers while still showing the more experienced divers sea life. He really was great. His humor was appreciated on the dive boat in between. I would recommend him to any diving group. Martin and Freddy were our other dive masters and I would say these two were very safe divers and showed us a lot of sea life. I was also happy that they have you take off your BCD in the water and they help pass it up to the boat. That made it so easy. They also dropped us off at the hotel pier and took care of our equipment. I felt spoiled to have them handle all that. I feel fortunate enough to have booked with this dive operation and would do so again. Thank you so much Salty Endeavors for the introduction to Cozumel drift diving. Loved it.

Always quick response for booking and well organized.
The boat was always on time or early (uncommon)
Our request for a larger tank as well as nitrox tanks for our afternoon dives were there.
Dive masters were amazing, personable but extremely competent and professional. We were able to dive our air, thankfully, since another driver and myself were able to see two large eagle rays while the rest of the divers were on the boat!

Hi Jas53122. Thanks for the kind review. We try hard to be on schedule! As a former Chicagoan, I love to be punctual. Not always easy in Mexico as it seems you've noticed! hahaha Glad to hear the experience was and yes those eagle rays are oh so special!

We dove for 5 days in March with Salty Endeavors. Everything about this trip was top-notch! The online booking was very simple, the whole team was responsive to email, and they were easy to work with when we needed to make changes in our arrangements. Every single divemaster was a high-level professional, and our boat captain was the absolute best. One of our teenage sons completed his certification through Salty Endeavors, and he received a much better education than the rest of our family members who were certified in the States. We lucked into finding the best dive company on our first dive trip to Cozumel. We will be booking with Salty Endeavors again!

All of the dives were excellent and the dive masters on both day one and day two did a phenomenal job taking care of us!

Small, fast boats with skilled driver. Instructions were thorough and insightful so we were well prepared when we hit the water.

Images are from Pelacar Horseshoe reef, one of four reefs we dove over two days.

We plan on using Salty Endeavors when we return to Cozumel!
