My family has been going to Cozumel and diving with Aldora for many years. This time we had a family reunion, bringing my husband's brother and family (including a 10 and 12 year old) of new divers who had been certified in a lake in the midwest. Almendra was our divemaster last year, and we were so delighted she was able to be with us for the eight days we dove. It is always wonderful to have the same dive master, but for the new divers, it was so valuable. Almendra was able to observe their skills and progress, give feedback and help us all become better divers. We were on several different boats, small and larger. On each boat we were given a safety briefing, and each boat had oxygen on board. All the boat captains, and Chino (crew) were so kind, patient, helpful and fun. On the smaller boat, we needed to do a back roll entry. My new diving family had never done a bank roll, and it can be a little scary. The captain who helped us all into our gear and position on the edge of the boat was so patient. As each person prepared he always said, "when you are ready". There was no rushing or pressure. Almendra made sure to point out big and tiny critters- we saw amazing things on every dive. Julian in the office keeps everything organized. Memo, the owner, is always around making sure everyone is happy. We were, indeed. We can't wait to return.

Just returned from 6 days of diving with Ricardo from Aldora Divers. Over the last 2 years we've used Aldora Divers on each of our 4 dive trips lasting 5 to 8 days in the months of May, August and October. This last trip in December afforded us the opportunity to see some wildlife that we had not experienced before - giant eagle rays and a 10 to 12 foot hammerhead.
Memo runs the operation and works hard to make sure that each diver gets personalized service and a great diving experience and great value for your money. They use 120 cf steel tanks for men and smaller ones for women which allows for 60 minute plus dives. Their equipment is always in good shape as well as their boats.
Cozumel is consistently a joy to dive owing to the many dive sites, the variety of depths and terrains, the good visibility and usually sunny weather.
Ricardo was our DM this last trip. As we've experienced with other Aldora DMs, Ricardo's English was easy to understand, he suggested dive sites and gave the reasons for his suggestions yet asked the group where they wanted to go and his love of diving is evident in his approach to each dive and the smile on his face.

Just came back from diving 7 days in Cozumel with Aldora Divers. The experience was over the top! I am very inexperienced at open deep water diving and needed to build my confidence. Aldora dive master Ernesto, Julio and Liang helped me with everything I needed to make my dives the best! Liang gave my wife a scuba discovery lesson and had her diving at 45 feet for 73 minutes the next day. This is a top notch company with safety and comfort a priority. We cannot wait to go diving with Aldora Divers again!

Just done 7 days diving with Edgar and Aldora divers. Fabulous operation with fast boats, steel tanks, nitrox and a willingness tongo to the South or to Baracudanreef if you want. memo is the dive managernwho is willing to make your trip memorable. The best dive operation on the island - no competition. Edgar is a golden asset with his experience and ability to find anything and everything the reefs have to offer, Edgar is truly the Master.

Ricardo, Chen and our boat operator were all excellent. The boat was pristine and the attention to detail unmatched. Ricardo was very professional and presented a very thorough dive briefing. We would go back to Cozumel just to dive with this operator. As well, the opportunities for great dives abound off Cozumel. A wonderful dive destination.
