My wife and I dove with Papa Hog's during our Cozumel vacation in June 2016. We contacted the shop via email before our arrival to let them know we were looking for about 25 dives in a weeks time. (And if you are not an avid diver, I can tell you that 5 dives a day for a week is... More

We used Papa Hog's for our 13 year old to complete his certification. He was having double clearing his ears below 15 ft and Mike the owner suggested we see an Dr. Pascual Piccolo, ENT/dive specialist which we did the next morning for $60. He scoped his ears and found no reason he shouldn't be able to clear and told... More

I have had to opportunity to dive in several areas across the globe.... And, hands down- Mike and Margaret run a wonderful Scuba shop. Their Dive Masters set up your gear, know the reefs like the back of their hands, and ensure the group is well tended. Eric and Eddie are wonderful Dive Masters! My favorite reefs are Punta Dalia...

Our tour was great. We had a private experience. We saw turtles, dolphins and many other beautiful fish. Eric got in the water a told us explaining what we're seeing and helping us to get the most out of our trip. We were out so long that my family got exhausted. Definitely worth the money. I will go there again... More

Mike, Margaret and their entire staff will ensure that you are taken care of and experience some of the most fantastic diving on the planet. Book your diving, snorkeling or fishing trips with Papa Hog's. Also inquire with them about any other travel interests you have while in Cozumel for excellent referrals.

Our family of a grandmother, 2 daughters, 1 daughter-in-law and 3 older grandchildren just returned from a Carnival Cruise in Cozumel. We booked Papa Hog's for our 4 hour snorkeling excursion rather than the cruise excursion because we did not want the crowds. There were 7 of us and the price of the boat was a much better deal. Snorkel... More

We booked a snorkel trip for our family of 7. There were 2 teenagers a 20 yr old, 2 in our 50's and 1 in our 70's so we were a mixed group. We were on a Carnival cruise and wanted something a little less crowded than the typical herd excursion. We booked the Chriscraft for half day snorkel and... More

This was the 6th time I have been to Papa Hogs Dive Emporium. Prior I had been to several other dive operations all with larger boats and as many as 20 divers on each dive. Pro: smaller fast boats usually less than six divers(Run to some of the dive sites is 30+ minutes much less than those coming from down... More

Our group of five (4 snorkelers and 1 scuba diver) had a fabulous afternoon. The owner, Margaret, set us up with a perfect day and knowledgeable, friendly guides who took great care of our group. VERY reasonably priced. Keep in mind that you will be in a true, no-frills dive boat. If you have anyone in your group who needs... More

We (group of 6) went scuba and snorkeling for 3 1/2 hrs. Owner (Margaret) is a lovely Canadian who has extensive knowledge of all things scuba, snorkeling and Cozumel.
