This is hands down the best freediving/scuba diving tour in Cozumel. Fernando and Manuel are such experienced guides and made us feel incredibly safe in the open water. The marine life and coral are beautiful. Bring your gopro!

Cristina was extremely accommodating as I was by myself trying to expand my diving knowledge and Experience. The rest of the crew was great as well, even giving me local tips on restaurants and history of the island. Saw nurse shark, lionfish, eagle ray, sea turtles and hundreds of beautiful fish and coral. Breathtaking!!!

You won't find a better dive operation. My wife's family had used Cristina many times and I have used her a couple of times before. We come back to her every time we are in Cozumel. Her boat is perfect for lounging and provides plenty of shade. She brings the best lunch that we have ever had on a scuba boat. She is very intentional about education but also allows you to have freedom to explore and to maximize your bottom time. Javier was our dive master and he worked hard to ensure everything ran smoothly and was always pointing things out to us. Cristina feels like family to us. It feels like she truly care about us and our family. The crazy thing is, every diver that was on the boat with us felt the same way. They were "regulars" who have dove with Cristina for years. Everybody is family to Cristina. We had a great experience as always and will see her again the next time we come to Cozumel.

Well, we just finished our latest 12-dive trip with Cristina and her two outstanding divemasters, Javier and Fernando. I can’t say how much we enjoy every dive with them. It’s like flying first-class on a plane...but this is affordable! Her English is fantastic and the lunch provided is just as good. This time I was thrilled to take my newly certified teenage daughter with me. I told her she would get certified in Missouri, but she’d learn to dive with Cristina. It was such a great experience for her...and now my kid LOVES to dive. I trust Cristina completely and because of that, I was able to enjoy myself as well (instead of being a freaked out mom with a brand new diver in the family). Cristina also took some pictures and video for us. They turned out beautiful. In short, don’t bother diving with another group in Cozumel...this is the experience you want!

Although we started diving with some other companies in Cozumel a couple decades ago, my family and I tried Dive with Cristina, and never looked back. She and her crew have been, and remain, wonderful. I have no reason to even consider trying anyone else. On our most recent trip in January (2020), we stayed at the Fiesta Americana (another favorite). Cristina picked us up at the dock, and off we went. With five of us on vacation, our schedule was in constant flux, but Cristina was very willing to accommodate our rescheduling. The boat is slow but spacious and comfortable. Some of the rental gear is a little worn, but there were no problems with any of it. A typical trip involve a deeper first dive, a great lunch during the surface interval (others have commented on this already!), and then a shallower second dive. If diving multiple days, they allowed gear to remain on board. As others have mentioned, Cristina and all her crew are fun, helpful, safety conscious without being bossy, and professional. Before our arrival, much of the Cozumel reef had been closed, to try to give it a chance to recover. We did see some areas with extensive algae, and less fish than usual. However, other areas seem completely unaffected (to our untrained eyes), and just the way we remembered them. Even the "bad" reefs were still fun, and interesting in their own way. I would go back tomorrow if I could! Possible negatives for some divers: First, there was no dedicated camera tank. I have a small camera and light, and had no issues. However, if I had a large, multi-thousand dollar set-up, I might be more concerned. Second, they do NOT take credit cards . . . it is cash only . . . dollars or pesos. Be prepared! Bottom line: I highly recommend Dive with Cristina, and look forward to our next dives with them.
