About Tres Pelicanos Dive Center
Welcome to Tres Pelicanos Dive Center, the place where scuba divers come to dive their tank and/or computer profile. Our goal is to have each diver achieve the longest bottom time possible-SAFELY. We do not do DECO dives. We also take a longer surface interval in-between dives. We offer plenty of water to keep hydrated and snacks of sweet bread and fruit. Our boat is fast and comfortable. We have a fresh water shower on board to wash the salt off your face and for a camera rinse. Our crew sets up your gear and also takes it back to the shop where it is rinsed and brought back to the boat the next day for your dives. Our dive masters have years of experience diving the reefs of Cozumel. We understand that you work hard for your vacation dollars and want your experience with Tres Pelicanos to be a memorable one. We know that we cannot improve on the wonderful underwater world of Cozumel so we work hard at giving you the best customer service possible. We want the time when you first step on the boat until you enter the water and then back to the dock to be the most relaxing and enjoyable time of your vacation. So come on in and become a member of our Pelican family. Thanks Steve

We had 7 divers in our group, from referral newbies to highly experienced Master Divers. Everyone had a great experience in one of the world’s great dive destinations. The advanced divers went out on a separate boat to dive Punta Sur (the remarkable Devil’s Throat) while the others dived shallower boat dives or OW shore dives. But, we all dived 6 sites together with enough variety for everyone. Servando was great with our most anxious new diver, and Jose spent the time (more than 4 dives) to get the other new divers to a certified level, ready to dive without instruction. Jorge and boat captain Tiburon were a pleasure to dive with every day. Boats are fast and covered and not over-crowded. Other touches (site choices, fresh fruit and chocolate cake, water, lunch drops) make us come back to 3P each year. (3P, Please board more 1- and 2-pound weights for trim pockets.)

Another great experience diving with the Tres Pelicanos team. Jeanie accommodated my dive requests on short notice. George the DM was excellent and attentive as were the captains. Boats are fast with a lot of shade and good snacks between dives.

My husband and I are relatively new divers, and we had an amazing experience diving with the Tres Pelicanos team. The shop was very accommodating and flexible when we had issues with our PayPal account. Also, as newer divers, we deeply appreciated the level of care and assistance from our dive master (Jorge) and the other divers on our trip, including the shop owner, Steve, who dove with us. Steve and the crew were incredibly gracious to answer all of our questions while giving advice along the way. It's easy to see that this shop takes great pride in their work and treats divers of all levels with respect and care. If you're looking for an experienced, caring team to dive with in Cozumel, look no further than Tres Pelicanos.

Gracias Maddie (middle seat girl) for your very kind words. Yes you discovered our secret weapon--JEANIE--who is so quick to answer questions and get all your information for your reservations. Also our DM's. Both George and Jose have terrific eyes and can spot the small creatures. I can hardly see anything smaller than a turtle. I have seen it a thousand times--new divers nervous about hurting the more experienced divers dives. Well, as you learned---the experienced divers love to suggest and help our newbies get the most enjoyment out of their dives. We loved helping you guys and your smiles in return was all the payment needed. You guys are Pelicans now. Members of our ever growing Pelican family of divers. I know that you will be back for another visit. Muchas gracias and hasta luego. Steve

This dive shop was recommended by a friend and we had a fantastic experience. All the staff was friendly and knowledgable. We did a total of 4 two tank dives during our week stay and each dive was unique and special. We saw a bounty of fish, interesting coral formations, lots of eagle rays, turtles and even a few nurse sharks. The staff was very accommodating. Highly recommend!

What a wonderful dive shop!! Steve was great as well as the entire staff. Knowledgeable, friendly, and they knew what they were doing! Equipment was great, snacks were always delicious, and the diving in Cozumel was unforgettable! Definitely be adventurous and try the night diving!! Also, my GoPro stopped working on my second day:/ but thankfully, Jose (DM) was nice enough to let me borrow his so I could take some footage home. Thank you again to all the staff who made my vacation incredible! Sincerely, Mandy (Middle Seat)

Hello Mandy (Miss middle seat)--muchas gracias for your terrific review of our dive operation, Tres Pelicanos. It was fun to have you join our family of Pelican divers and all of us are happy that the weather cooperated and you were able to take home wonderful memories. I remember that the second part of your trip was to the mainland and I hope that you found that as exciting as you found the waters of Cozumel. We have named the middle seat of my truck " Mandy's seat", so it is all ready for a return visit whenever you can make it back. The octopus are waiting for you to return with a new go pro. Hasta luego, Steve
