The team at Opal's is great. The Dive masters are younger but they know their stuff. I dove with them for two days and I was very impressed with Luis. He knew the areas very well and was on a constant lookout for wildlife. He pointed out a seahorse that couldn't have been more than a centimeter long. It took me a few seconds to even recognize that it was a seahorse. He also went to great lengths to extend the dive. He loves to dive and wanted to share the joy he had with everyone on the boat.

I was surprised at how relaxed the team was, even when it came to paying for the dives. Normally thats the first thing that has to happen before you are told the pickup time.

I didn't use the service they have of washing & stowing your gear overnight, but I did see a few people who did and it looked like a great service.

The fast boats are great. It's amazing how much of a difference it makes in getting from one site to another.

And the prices are great!

We spent a week away from the frigid cold of Pittsburgh and used Opal's Dream for a great week of scuba diving. They took us to some great spots (and there are many in Cozumel), but were really good at pointing out the many beautiful creatures...we saw sea horses, a beautiful spotted eagle ray, sharks, and many other exciting things. Thanks to Edwardo (our divemaster) and Camel (our captain) for a week of great adventures.

Dove with them for 5 days. Bottle of water when you get on the boat. fresh fruit between dives. Abraham our DM was very knowledgeable and spoke english well, and as a extra bonus because we were there for multiple days we could leave our dive gear on the boat and have it rinsed and ready to go the next day.

We dove with Opal's dream dive shop for 3 days (2 tank dives). We had a great time with Abraham, our DM, and he found some unbelievable sea life (5 sharks, and more than 40 turtles on the 6 dives). This is a very professional outfit that was efficient and well prepared on the boats. The had fresh fruit and water and drinks on all the trips. The price is better than most places and they picked us up and dropped us off right at the dock where we were staying. The only way to dive. Only minus here is the equipment we rented with them is getting a little worn. I had brought alot of equipment along, but needed a BC and a reg for one of us. They could benefit from replacing some of the worn out stuff. Cozumel is a beautiful place to dive but does have its dangers,...2 divers were lost on other dive shop trips the weekend we were there...

We had a large group of ten with a full range of experience, most inexperienced. The kids ranged from ages 6-13 and everyone felt safe and comfortable with the operation. The entire trip was excellent. Vicky was helpful and answered all questions when setting up the trip via email. Abraham our guide during the trip was very professional and friendly. We were very comfortable and went to reefs that were further away than where the cruise ship excursions appeared to be heading. We will definitely go back to Cozumel and snorkel or dive with Opal’s again.
