We have been running dive trips for groups to Cozumel and around the world for over 40 years and we Love Chili Charters! Hands down we recommend them to all divers, snorkels, small and large groups, and families. They are well organized, well managed and have well trained captains and dive guides. Very safe and fun. Even during the coronavirus we felt very safe, everyone taking temps and wearing masks. They have helped our groups who range from brand new divers to divers with well over 5,000 dives and all are pleased with Chili Charters. You won’t go wrong with choosing this charter! Don’t ruin your vacation by choosing another operation .... This charter has helped our divers have comfortable time and memories they will never forget that keep them wanting to come back for more, year after year after year.
Thank you Rene, Donna, and the Chili Charter Crew!

So we have been to Cozumel for several years and used several different operators. These guys so far are the best we have experienced. So many other operators will tell you Cozumel is drift diving and you have to ride the currents. This is not true, Chili charters knows how to dive drift and still see stuff. Honestly I have documented ten different nudis on this trip. That is up there with a trip to Fiji or Asia. This was the best dive trip we have ever had in Cozumel. I would strongly recommend these guys to all my dive friends. We had one doing PADI OW, and two AOW, no issues, they accommodated that as well as the slow dive of every one else. We never had any issues, always a fun dive, snacks at the surface interval, overall a great crew. Please consider diving with these guys, they are all local and genuinely kind warm fantastic people. They went so far as to cook breakfast for my wife for her 50th birthday and bring it to the boat. How cool is that.

We took Chilicharters on Wednesday August 26, 2020. My husband and I are out trying new dive operators. I really admired the paperwork and the thoroughness of Rene and his crew. He was very efficient in asking about what we wanted to see and what our expectations. He asked our photographer friend specific details in what she wanted to see and what sites were important. Talk about customer service. It was far and beyond. He asked us what we wanted to see and do as well.

The diving was perfect Rene showed is so many underwater aquatic life I caught it all. Amazing enough. Thank you so much for a great experience.

I’ve been diving in Cozumel for 30 years and Chili’s Charters is the best run, most comfortable and satisfying operation with whom I’ve dove. If you’re looking for relaxed, laid back diving yet well organized and safe these are the guys. Always ready to customize your dive do your specifications, depth, location etc. You won’t be disappointed. Best dive master and best boat captain in Cozumel.

A family owned and operated dive operation, Rene, Chilango, Rafa, Adrian, Elpedio all go out of their way to insure a safe and very enjoyable dive trip. They know all the classic Cozumel dive sites and a few infrequently visited sites. 2 or 3 dive packages are available, ask for the tuna salad potato chip smash sandwiches if you do a 3 dive day. I’ve been to Cozumel 25 times over the years, dove with several dive operations, Chili Charters is the best of them all.

Fantastic experience!

My husband and I made our first open water dive in Cozumel in 1986, be we hadn't made a dive in over 20 years. We are 60 and were a little bit anxious. Rene and his qualified staff took us on a shallow dive and gave us a thorough review. We always felt safe and well cared for! We had such a good experience we booked a total of 6 dives. Plans are in the works to return to Cozumel in November, and we will only dive with Chili Charters! Thanks for getting us back into diving, Rene!

We had an awesome excursion with Chili Charters! We had used them before and couldn’t wait to go back the trip to el cielo has been constantly talked about in my family as one of our favorite cruise excursions ever. Rene is very communicative and makes it easy to figure out what you need and where to go. So much nicer and more intimate than the huge cattle herd snorkel tours the cruise lines arrange. Great time, thanks again Rene!

Rene and his crew are great. Their boat leaves from Puerto Abrigo in the North Hotel zone and the location makes it a very convenient departure point. If you are looking for a dive operation that has great communication, personalized service, and great dive masters and boat captains look no further. We have been coming to Cozumel for over 30 years and we highly recommend Chili Charters.

As an avid diver, I can't tell you how much we loved diving with Rene at Chili Charters. We had a diverse group of advanced divers, advanced junior divers and 2 brand new open water divers. We also made several new friends. We dove 4 days and had amazing dives every single day. Rene accommodated us all and there was something for everyone. Add in the fact that Rene is the absolute best dive master that I've dove with in forever and I can say that we will NEVER use anyone but him when in Cozumel. I also want to give a huge shoutout to Rafael (who only dove with us one day) for the amazing amount of teaching he did with our junior divers. His love of ocean conservation and education was something we loved seeing in action. If you're in Cozumel and want to have an amazing time make sure you contact Chili Charters!! They are the BEST!!!!
