Let me follow that statement up by saying that I have made over 400 dives with Blue Xt~Sea and I would not even consider anyone else. They have certainly spoiled me. I have dived with several other shops on the Island and for my money Blue Xt~Sea is tops. When I arrive in Cozumel I get checked in and take my gear to the shop. That is the last time I touch it until it is time to go home. They keep the gear every night and rinse it and dry it and then the next morning when they pick you up at your hotel your gear is on a tank and waiting for you. Even after your last dives before heading home it is rinsed and dried and packed for my trip home.

Between dives the surface interval is always at a beach club and there are always warm fresh baked goodies and plenty of fruit to eat. Of course there is always all the water you can drink.

For my money the DMs are the best on the Island. Arturo has a degree in Marine Biology, and Pedro has made over 10,000 dives all in Cozumel, and Miguel is one of the best videographers on the island as well as an excellent dive master. There is not anyone that knows the sea life or the reefs better than these guys.

Dives are always by your computer and they will allow you to dive to that computer. No short dives because someone else has to go up. I have made 2 hour dives with them several times; they will not rush you at anytime.

I would without hesitation recommend Blue Xt~Sea to anyone going to Cozumel. In fact my 11 year old grandson wants to be certified and I will trust him to anyone else but Christi and her crew at Blue Xt~Sea diving.

Christi is and angel on the island and is the most honest and strait forward person that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Now you see why I do not even consider going anywhere else.

Thank You for your time.

I dived with blue xt 2 weeks ago. I booked and paid using the website. In busy periods they do not have permanent staff in the office so you'll need a bit of patience: i didn't receive any booking confirmation for 10 days but after that the booking was confirmed.
The first diving day (with the divemaster Miguel Angel) was very good: safe diving profile and the divemaster was always spotting marine life for us. The other 2 days (with an other diving master) the service was not as good ad the first day, but was not bad: the divemaster was most of the time behind us (I think he was hunting lion fish: the lion fish is destroying the reef ecosistem in cozumel).

Christi, Arturo, and Miguel at Blue XT Sea Diving were the absolute best dive shop I've ever used while in Cozumel, and I'll never use anyone else. They catered to our every need, provided us the dives we wanted to go on, with no negative comments about distance or extra fees. They took care of our equipment, even to the point of driving it out to our resort the morning we departed just to make our stay more convenient.

Great attitude, great service, can't say enough good things about this group.

I used to think that SCUBA was only for the young and being over 60 meant "one foot in the grave" -- but now I'm in the latter age group and Christi Courtney at Blue XT Sea Diving helped me prove to myself that even "high in-betweens" can have GREAT new experiences! She is a wonderful all-level SCUBA instructor - her skill (she has over 3000 dives and I never saw so many credentials!) and patience gave my husband and I the confidence to learn to dive so we could enjoy the vast beauty under the ocean at Cozumel, Mexico. Her shop is a "boutique" operation, where Christi, her boat captains and dive masters did all the hard work and we divers just stepped on the boat and headed for the reefs! Christi and her team provided equipment rentals, had air tanks waiting on the boat for each dive, provided fresh towels and snacks for surface intervals, and were excellent guides for diving the best locations to see beautiful fish, eels, all kinds of coral, and tons of other "wonders of the deep". With a maximum of only 6 divers to a trip, we found the personal service to be outstanding. That is something often missing in this day and time so Christi and Blue XT Sea Diving get the highest recommendation from us! I am still in awe of all that we saw and did and I know we'll be back to dive with them at every opportunity!

Blue XT~Sea Diving is the best operator I have ever dealt with. We have gone diving with them 5 times, and there is a reason why we are repeat customers. Every single employee, from the Owner, to the Captains, Divemasters, and the Shop assistant loves their job. Everyone pays such attention to detail, especially those details which effect their customers. Christi, the owner, runs a full service operation that will set up your gear, and take it for rinsing and safe storage over night. They also have smaller, fast boats. I find that these are best because there is no rocking of the boat to give you motion sickness, and no large amounts of fumes to make you sick. They also always have tons of water for everyone on the boat, as well as fresh fruit and snacks for the surface interval, which is always enough time to off gas. They do not rush anything. You dive your computer or your air tank, there is no time limit. They are not rushing from one dive to the next to get their work day over with either, like I stated previously, they love their jobs. I cannot say enough good things about the operation and everyone involved to give enough thanks for the 60+ dives we have enjoyed with them. If you are looking for a personalized, full service operation, this is your best choice.
