We dove Alex Scuba in Cozumel for a two tank dive at Palancar Gardens and Paradise. Alex Oliver met us at the ferry pier just as we arrived from Playa, with everything in order for our trip. He,his guides, and boat crew - were professional, knowledgable, and exuded a desire for diving, safety, and their actions were based on many years of experience. Our grown children were with us (they are not divers - yet) and they had a wonderful time snorkeling the reefs above us.
They are a clean, efficient operation - locally owned and operated, and based in Cozumel.
We will definitely use Alex again!

I just returned from a wonderful week diving with Alex Scuba. I completed the Rescue Dive Course with Alex and Julian. They were both excellent instructors. Alex also did a Discover Scuba Dive with my girlfriend. She was nervous but Alex stayed with her and made her feel comfortable.

Alex and his staff are the best. You never feel rushed, crowded, or ignored. Dives last as long as you have air (I don't think Alex even breathes underwater, his air lasts so long). We had one dive of 80 minutes. Alex is also uncanny in spotting sea life. If you aren't diving with Alex Scuba you are missing some of the true joy and wonder of diving.

I am still reeling from the fantastic experience I had taking my PADI open water diving course with Alex and his team. If you want a fun, friendly, personal experience from a genuinely passionate divers then this is the place for you. I did the course alone and was made to feel very comfortable. The standard of the teaching was superb and came at a great price.

If you are in cozumel then definitely check them out.
