Some of the Frequently Asked Questions By You
We have a remote office located in town, but no need to come to us. We will make arrangements to come to you the night before your first scheduled dive if necessary. We do ask that you check in with us the night before your first planned dive to let us know you have arrived and verify the pick-up time in the morning.
We depart from the FONATUR marina daily at 8:30 AM. and will pick up at the following resorts: Iberostar, Occidental Grand, Allegro, Aura, Residencia Reef, Hotel Cozumel, Casa del Mar and Presidente Hotel. We also pick up at beach clubs and private homes in the south. Some hotels may charge their guests a daily fee for getting picked up by a dive shop other than the onsite dive operation. Ask your hotel when making reservations. If you are not staying at one of these resorts, we ask that you come to the FONATUR marina to get on the boat. Be there by 8:15 AM.
Dive sites are determined the morning of the scheduled dive, and we try to make it a group decision whenever possible. Requests are always welcomed.
The water temperature ranges between 76 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter months (Dec, Jan, Feb); 78 to 80 degrees in the Spring (March through May); and warm up to 82 – 84 degrees in the summer months. Exposure protection is determined by your tolerance and is based on your tendency to chill. Keep in mind that if you are doing multiple dives over multiple days, you will probably become less tolerant of cold as the week progresses. An excellent all-around suit for Cozumel is a total of 3 mm.
The maximum number of divers per divemaster is 7 divers. The maximum the boat will accommodate is 10 divers. Should this be the case, we will have an extra dive guide on the boat to accommodate a larger group.
Cozumel has a wide variety of marine life, including turtles; spotted eagle rays; nurse sharks; schools of snappers, grunts, and triggerfish; barracudas; seahorses; and Cozumel’s endemic Splendid Toadfish. You will drift along walls of coral with plentiful sponges as you fly out over the abyss. Each site will be different every time you dive.
The price for a private divemaster to accompany your dives is $65 for a two-tank dive.
