I had a bad experience with another dive instructor earlier in the week and my husband surprised me with a Discover Scuba Dive the day we were at Sunset. These people were amazing and even though they were booked for the day, they called in one of their fill-in people and took us on a dive. I wasn't too hopeful of what me might see but it turned out AMAZING! There were plenty of coral to see and so much marine life that day. I don't think I have ever seen so many porcupine puffers, candy cane banded shrimp, stingrays, anenomes and eels all in one place before. We found eels that I had never seen before in this area: Sharptail eel, spotted moray eel, and a chain moray eel. Our instructor was quick to point out everything we didn't see and took his time with us along the way. This area has a coral reef restoration going on and it is thriving well. They also have an electric reef came monitoring the sculpture "Zoe", which is an inspired DNA sculpture with plenty of sea life forming on it. The coral in this place is GORGEOUS! Brilliant colors of deep purple, light purple, blue, orange, blue and even pink! It was breath taking! I would highly recommend this place and instructors that worked hard to pull together a dive for us this day. They even gave us a link for a discount they were running. I will use them again next time we are in Cozumel!

I was contacted them with very short time, the made it happened pick it us up from the resort pier at the sharp time. Maira was our DM she did a great job, help us with good tips to improve our skills, great energy always smiling and happy, on top of that she was taking pictures with a profesional camera. The diving was amazing, a lot to see under, water and snacks were provided, also the boat crew was good, always next to us when we got back to the surface.

We were in Cozumel for a shore excursion from our Holland America cruise. Our original tour was cancelled due to the Iron Man triathlon(basically entire island was shut down)so we went to Sand Dollar Sports instead. We couldn’t get a taxi so they picked us up in their boat which was an added bonus. We were very skeptical with snorkeling right in the port area and didn’t know what to expect, especially after seeing the roped off section that was to be the snorkel area, I was starting to feel duped. Everyone was very nice and helpful. There were large lockers to rent, a bar and restaurant right on the premises. We had our own tour guide that swam in the water with us that also carried a floating rescue buoy in case anyone got tired. They provided all the snorkel equipment needed, including snorkel vest. It was very rocky walking into the water but cleared up fast. Once in the water it was amazing. We saw so many fish, rays, sea cucumbers and coral that this was some of the best snorkeling we’ve had. We just snorkeled in Grand Cayman and it was better than that. I was very pleasantly surprised. We also saw the new coral that was being grown. We were in the water for a long time enjoying all the underwater sights. After our tour was over, we turned in our flippers and since we had our own masks and snorkels, we were able to go back out to explore more. After we were done snorkeling the guide helped us all and even showed us a trick to keep our masks from fogging up. Showers and restrooms are right there as you get out of the water as well. They gave us another boat ride back to the dock once we were finished. Overall, we couldn’t have been more happy and Sand Dollar Sports saved the day. I highly recommend Sand Dollar Sports, they were very helpful, organized, everything was clean and they were great with the kids(we had teens and grade schoolers). The next time we’re in Cozumel, we’re skipping the ship shore excursions and booking right through Sand Dollar.

Had a great experience September 2019 diving as part of the Disney Cruise official excursion. Felt very safe, great briefings for the boat and dives. Good staff was informed and helpful. Kept right on time and back with ample time to get back to the cruise ship. Had a great time. Would do again. Thank you!

I made my last 2 ocean dives (from the beach) for my O/W PADI certification at Sand Dollar. This is a great place to train. 30 feet to the bottom and great visibility. The staff were very welcoming to us even though we were training with another group. I will book a dive with Sand Dollar the next time I go to Cozumel.
