“Fabulous experience!!!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Beyond a doubt the highlight of my cruise was my dive with Ramon Zapata divers at Mr. Sanchos in Cozumel. My dive master, Abraham, was extraordinarily sensitive to my lack of experience. He gave me a quick refresher on procedures, held my hand when I needed it and guided me through a remarkable undersea adventure. Since I didn't have a camera, Abraham brought his own camera, photographed the dive and emailed the pictures to me. The reef was loaded with colorful coral and fish. Abraham found sea turtles, a hidden king crab and a nurse shark. The equipment was in great shape and seemed to be of high quality. After the dive, I was offered the use of a kayak at no additional charge. I can't wait to do it again.

“These guys are great!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

They are extremely knowledgable, progressional and fun. This dive was originally going to be a snorkeling trip at Mr. Sanchos in Cozumel. Ramon happened to be at the rental shop and I inquired about a possible dive. Being a first time diver he took a great deal of time explaining the equipment and the process. Next thing I knew we were looking at a ton of fish, sea turtles and coral reefs. I am planning a trip back very soon and will be under water with them the vast majority of it seeking my certification. Paco took a lot of time extracting some great photos from this experience as well. Thanks to both of you.


If you want an azaming experience with some great people I highly recommend RZ Blue.

“The best diving agency in Mexico”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Lovely people. Professional staff with quality diving equipment.
They have a shop in the city center and two dive shops on the most beautiful beaches on the island.

My wife and I did the open water and advence courses and got a great attitude, abilities and skills, and of course Padi card.

Highly recommend this agency!

Cozumel is one of the most beautiful places in the world for diving, with Ramon Zapata who knows every part of the ocean in Cozumel is very worth diving and of course with his team.
