My daughter and I partook in 10 dives each during our week. Their dive kiosk was directly across the street from Casa del Mar; a great place to stay if diving with these guys. Although, they will pick you up at other hotels. Amazing how much equipment they have in their "little" shop. We rented the equipment for the entire week, but were only charged for the days we used it. Every morning we went diving, it was sitting out ready for us. Our first day out, the dive master, Jorge, made sure our gear was working and we were comfortable before proceeding deeper. He went as far as lending me his extra mask, as mine was causing me trouble. He was very thorough during briefing and made sure safety came first. Every morning we were greeted enthusiastically by the crew, often asked where we wanted to dive, thoroughly briefed and looked after . . . the crew provided fresh fruit, water and cookies for our break between dives. We visited different sites every day, including a wreck dive. Paulino, Jorge, Alex, and Jeremiah are excellent dive masters; they get to know their clients' dive levels and accommodate. Ratio of 1:6 at most. They are very entertaining, yet knowledgeable and concerned for safety first. Highly recommend for novice and experienced divers.

The owner or hey and many of his staff members are incredible and knowledgeable. There were a few who went overboard with the handholding to the point that it was annoying. They are cattle boats and they place all the divers in one group with mixed experience level and do not allow any deviation. This resort would've gotten five stars if it weren't for that. However if you are novice Diver I would highly recommend them as they put you want great spots and ensure your safety

This is a great dive shop. Right on the pier across from Hotel Casa Del Mar. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional. Their boats were well equipped. The dive guides were professional and safety conscious and did a great job - making sure everyone was comfortable and had a good dive experience. I would use them again when I'm in Cozumel. Javier, Jorge and David were wonderful!

We enjoyed our 2nd awesome dive vacation with them! Safety is UPMOST importance and they are FUN! Alex, Paulino, and Javier are excellent dive masters. Every detail of the dive was explained to us and they are constantly on the lookout for teachable moments. My breathing/buoyancy is sooo improved ;) If you are looking for a first class crew, boat, and dive masters....go here. We have done 16 total dives with them and I would not go anywhere else. Can hardly wait to go with them again!
