I found all the staff to be very good...fun, professional, safe. The boats aren't the newest or the fastest for sure, but I had read the reviews and was ready... More

My review is based solely on the Aqua Safari Dive Shop located within the Cozumel Palace resort. As part of our stay at the resort, we were offered credits towards diving with Aqua Safari. I was open water certified with approximately a half dozen dives (and a one and a half year gap from my last dive) at the time... More

I emailed back and forth a few times prior to our trip and always received a response so everything was organized on our arrival. Early in our week my husband and I did a refresher course with Andrea. Andrea was fabulous!! She... More

This was my first will likely be my last experience with scuba diving. I've been snorkeling several times before and this seemed like the natural progression of seeing the ocean closer.
