About Dive with Martin
Dive with Martin offers dive services for all levels of divers. Safety and your enjoyment are our primary concerns. All of our dives are guided by local professional PADI instructors and divemasters who have been diving Cozumel's reefs for many years. Our boats are some of the fastest Cozumel has to offer. They have been recently upgraded and they are all equipped with long range radios, oxygen, first aid kits and expert crews.

We had another great time with Dive with Martin! This crew is the best, and we have been using them since the 90s. There is no hesitation with this company! They are top notch. I love the small group ratio side, attentiveness of the dive masters, and their familiarity of the reefs and sea life! They speak great English and treat you like family. We recently had our 15 and 12 year old certified, and this was their first dive since training. David and Lucio were great with them. Thanks to them, my kids had an awesome first experience in the ocean, and we look forward to many more dives with this company.

I just returned from a 4-day dive with DWM. This is the 3rd time I have five with them and I will NEVER dive with any other shop on the island. I have my own wetsuit, computer, mask, fins, etc. I always rent their BCD’s and regulators. Their gear is alway in excellent shape and have performed just as they should. Every divemaster has taken time to review the dive plan on the way to the site and are extremely helpful in getting gear on and getting into the water. They are constantly checking on the group and want to know air pressure. They are incredibly careful when it comes to the safety stop. If you stay south of the marina, the boat ride is really quick. Short story; this is not a sight-seeing cruise and you are not going to have a lot of time to gear up. As soon as you get in the boat put on your wetsuit and booties and get your mask ready. They have soap for you to use so don’t dilly-dally around. Getting ready to dive is your responsibility. If there is one thing I would change about DWM is the newly-added photographer. Nice lady, but she is in your face for the whole dive. I come to relax and dive, not to have my picture taken. I finally had to ask her not to take my picture and she respected that, so I was very grateful that I got to enjoy my dive without intrusion. I have been diving in Cozumel since 1988 and things have changed significantly. I have dove with may dive shops and have not found in better than DWM. Getting set for a dive is easy through Paddi and communicating with DWM has become much easier thanks to WhatsApp. Relax, and enjoy the world underwater that only a few of us get to share!

This was my first time diving and it was amazing! It wasn't just amazing because of Cozumel's beautiful reefs, though; my claustrophobia kicked in when I first entered the water during their Explore Scuba course, and the guide was so patient and understanding! He got me to calm down quickly by paying attention to my body language and guiding me through deepening my breathing. The guide was also good in making sure we knew the hand signs and spotting/pointing out sea life. We dove with other divers on a second short 2-location dive, one had been diving for 30+ years and always used Martin when in Cozumel and he actually informed us that we had experienced the worst current he had seen down there; we didn't even notice because the guide (different from the first one we had) did such a good job of telling us to link arms and guiding us back up to the surface despite the low visibility conditions we experienced!

Thanks so much for this wonderful review. Our instructors are top notch and I'm glad you got to experience both of them. Now that you have overcome your concerns and dove in adverse conditions, you're ready to get fully certified!! Come on back to us for that!

I felt safe diving here. The crew checks your temp and gives you hand sanitizer when you get on the boat. I dove for 4 days and every day I was able to distance from others on the boat. It was very easy to contact the shop on Whatsapp to ask questions and set up dives. The rental equipment was in good condition. The crew is super helpful with helping you gear up. After the dives, they grab your BCD and fins from you so you don't need to carry your equipment when getting out of the water. Shoutout to Jose and Carlos who were fantastic dive guides!
