My husband (a non-diver) and myself (an amateur diver) spent two of our four days with Felipe and Captain Ricardo during our second trip to Cozumel this past January. There are so many positive things to say about this experience, where do I begin? I hadn't dove in over two years so Felipe helped me get reacquainted through a great refresher course. He made sure I was confident and comfortable by reviewing skills in a shallow reef. We then headed to Paraiso Reef for our second dive. He once again made sure I was comfortable and safe while viewing this beautifully diverse reef. I was completely mesmerized with tparrot fish and coral when something similar to a jellyfish managed to sting my ankle. I screamed loudly enough for Felipe to turn around and remove said creature from my ankle. We proceeded to view the underwater beauty as if it hadn't even fazed me. Meanwhile Captain Ricardo did a great job of helping my husband find some fun places to snorkel above us.

One day really wasn't enough to quench my thirst so we went out for dives 3 and 4 two days later. This consisted of a dive in Chancanaab Reef and my first shipwreck! I did not realize that the shipwreck would intimidate me but no worries; Felipe was there to help me acclimate to this new environment.

In a few words Felipe and crew provide great service and treat their customers with the utmost care and respect. We felt right at home with him and will definitely give him a call next time we are in Cozumel.

Muchisimas gracias por todo Felipe. Tengo recuerdos bien bonitos de nuestro tiempo contigo. Hasta la proxima!

Saludos,
June y Alex

My husband, 17 year old daughter, 15 year old son, and I used Diving Adventures. It was a little off the main drag, but the price was decent and we got Porfirio as an instructor. He was fabulous! My daughter had a really hard time with her ears and he was so patient with her. The other three of us went on to get our open dive certification and he was instructive, helpful, never harsh, but always to the point about the importance of what we were learning. I would recommend Diving Adventures for sure and if you use them, ask for Porfirio!

Just spent 10 days on Cozumel and connected for all our dives with Diving Adventures. This was the third time we have used Felipe and his team and we have always been treated extremely well. If you are going to Cozumel for the first time or doing a repeat visit, you need to know that the trick to Cozumel is smaller, faster boats. They get you to the best sites quicker with 4 - 8 divers on the boat instead of 20 - 30 divers on the "cattle cars". Boats filled with divers of all levels from a resort course to advanced (yikes!...45 minutes to get everyone into the water - 45 to get them out FOR EACH DIVE!). When we go to a dive destination we want to go to the best sites to experience the best dives. This can't happen on the cattle cars. Felipe's first question every day of our trip was..."where would you like to dive today"? Of course weather and current dictates where the sites of the day are but Felipe and his team will make sure you get the best experience while you are there and with his fast boats, will get you back to your hotel in time for happy hour. Felipe and his Diving Adventures team are not only extremely knowledgeable about the reef system but are great ambassadors for Cozumel and are environmentally conscious of the reef and marine life. This might seem like an infomercial but I've been diving on Cozumel for 20+ years with various operations and Diving Adventures is now my favourite!

Jenny:
This is the second time we've been diving w/ Felipe and we really can't say enough good things about him. When you watch the cattle car of divers leaving from the same dock, you'll know you've made the right decision! Felipe knows the reefs inside out and we always felt relaxed and extremely safe. Felipe will come and pick you up at your resort and take you to places that won't be over-run with other divers. I did my Advanced certification with him and we both did our Nitrox course with him and I would recommend him highly both for certification and just enjoyable diving. You can tell that Felipe just loves what he does and he loves the reefs around Cozumel. I wouldn't recommend diving with anyone else. We will use him again and again!

I brought my 11 year old to Cozumel for his first diving trip. He had been certified this summer in the USA. At the recomendation of another Cozumel resident, we went with Filipe at Diving Adventures Cozumel. He picked us up where we were staying, outfitted us with equipment and we went out for our first 2 tank dive.
Filipe took great care of my son and I and as he grew more comfortable with my son, he allowed him to do more on his own.
The instructions to my son on the finer points of diving were excellent and he learned quickly under the guidance of Filipe.
It takes a lot to put your son's life in the hands of a stranger, but I always felt very confident in Filipe. He has children of his own, and so he knows.
We will be returning next year when my other son is old enough and we are sure to call on Filipe and Diving Adventures Cozumel.
I would recommend very highly
