“Excellent service, great staff, safe diving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

This was our first experience with Dive Paradise as our previous operation was sold and would not commit to accommodate our group. They met and exceeded every request we made for our diving. They knew the waters well enough to tell us where we would have good visibility after an evening of rain, and where not to go. Julio and Miguel were superior dive masters, and our deck hand Jose must be the hardest working man in Cozumel! He was everywhere at once on our boat and often had our gear on the next tank before the next person was out of the water!!!

We went out each day for 3 dives. They supplied the lunch we requested (plus more) from the bakery we requested. They were on time every morning. And every tank had at least 3000 psi.

We had two special cases on our trip. The diver who had recently had shoulder surgery was pampered every dive, with the staff taking her gear to the dive deck so that she could suit up there, and get back aboard without straining herself. And we had a "nervous" diver who boldly stated that she was no longer nervous by the end of our trip, as she felt that our dive masters were very attentive during the dives.

“great dives/pay the extra for a fast boat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I recently was in Cozumel diving, and used Dive Paradise. The Dive Masters were excellent and very courteous. Their advice on dive sites was great and they were very safety conscious. I did not realize you could pick a smaller faster boat for only 4 dollars more per person, the amount is worth it as you only have 8 divers on board, and it is easier to reach a consensus on which dive site you will take. Don't miss any part of Palancar, and take a night dive-what a great experience. Dive Paradise was an excellent choice for diving Cozumel.

“Diving and snorkeling is always beautiful!”

Stepped off the cruise, walked a bit and did some amazing snokeling, but dive if you're certified. All the dive shops are great.

“Wonderful Diving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We have been diving with Dive Paradise for several years now. Every time we have received excellent service from the shop, the divemasters and boat captains. These people really take care of you, and they are very knowledgeable. We usually do the Caribbean trip which is a 2 tank dive. The boats are very comfortable and you never feel rushed. Each group has their own divemaster leading the group. Again thanks Dive Paradise for another great dive trip!
