My husband and I are around 60 years old and decided to try scuba diving for the first time. We were in Cozumel on the Celebrity Equinox and signed up for this excursion. It's only a ten minute drive from the cruise ship terminal and the taxi back and forth was pre-arranged and very smooth. Our instructor was Bruno. We... More

Staff at Sand Dollar were very nice and helpful. What brought the score down is the fact that the other divers were the worst I have ever seen. I have never seen so many divers that were so oblivious to what was going on around them. They lacked an bouyance and kept running into the bottom/reefs and cutting into other... More

We booked this shore excursion on a recent cruise to Cozumel. The crew of the dive boat was among the best I have ever had (and I have 500+ dives). They were very helpful in setting up equipment, assisting divers off and on the boat for dives, and changing over to new tanks between dives. They even had a selection... More

I was very impressed with the boat crew. Pedro was very funny and knowledgeable. Alberto helped every diver in and out of the water, as well as setting up and breaking down gear like a pro. The gear was in great condition, and the drift dives were awesome. So much life on these reefs. Would definitely go again!

I know I was on a cruise ship, and i have learned not to expect much from the dive companies working with the cruise ships. And this time was no exception. I have dove in Cozumel on several different occasions and stayed at the resorts on the island. So I would hope that would carry a little weight. With all... More

Thank you for your comments as you can imagine we are sorry to hear you were disappointed. As you mention in your comment you have stayed here in Cozumel in the past and have dived from a resort. The benefit of diving multiple days with the same operator/divemaster/captain is that we get to know your dive skills and experience. You... More

We went on the Snuba diving trip and had a fantastic time. The instructors were excellent. This is highly recommended for beginners to experienced divers alike.

My 12-year-old and I had never done any diving and thought Snuba would be a good way to start. We booked this excursion through the cruise ship (Royal Caribbean) which made things really easy for us. Our instructors were fluent in English and were very well trained to deal with the many different experience levels in our group. The two... More

We returned to Cozumel aboard the Carnival Pride and due to time constraints ended up diving with the Ship's operator Sand Dollar Sports Diving instead of our usually Cozumel crew. We found the dive company to be very thorough and safety conscious and provided us with very enjoyable dives. The first dive was a wonderful drift that gave the opportunity... More

A few days ago, I wrote a highly favourable review of another scuba diving experience (my first ever). Sand Dollar, for my second experience, was even better. They taught super simple techniques for doing things that I had found confusing and difficult earlier. I was most impressed, and I had a great time. I'd go back in an instant.
