FAQ

You need to fill in the online reservation request on our web page. As soon as we get your reservation, we will contact you and let you know what you need to do to finalize your booking.

Our first pick-up is at Marina Fonatur Cozumel. From there, we head south to pick up divers from hotels, villas or condos. Some hotels charge a fee for using their pier to pick up divers. Please ask your hotels when you are making your reservation.

If you are staying on the island, we will meet you the night before your first day of diving to pick up and try equipment, fill out the paperwork, talk about the details of your trips, take payment and answer all your questions.

If you are not staying on the island, you come to meet us at the Marina Fonatur Cozumel on the day of your dive trip.

Yes, we offer package deals starting from 3 or 4 two-tank dive trips ($85 US ea) and 5 or more two-tank dive trips ($80 US ea).

Yes. Please, let us know which reefs you are interested in and we will try our best to bring you there. Of course, we have to take into account divers’ skills and weather conditions. We never repeat a dive site. We repeat only if our divers ask for it.

All our departures are from Cozumel. You will need to take the ferry at 7:00am from Playa del Carmen (30-40 min ride). When you arrive in Cozumel, you need to take a taxi to the Marina Fonatur Cozumeland we will meet you there.

We work from home, so if you contact us to make a reservation, we will be more than happy to come and meet you wherever you are staying on the island.

No. I'm afraid we can't pick you up at the terminal. Only taxis may pick up from there. The Marina Fonatur Cozumel is just 5 to 10 minutes far away from the cruise ship terminal.

We have departures in the morning and afternoon leaving from the Marina Fonatur Cozumel at 9:00 am and 2:00 pm. Night dive and Twilight / night dive departures change depending on the time of the year.

We are 25 to 35 minutes away from the farthest dive sites

This is part of our service. We will take care of your equipment; we will rinse it every day with fresh water. The only gear that we don´t take care of is your wetsuit.

The water temperature ranges between 76 to 78 Fahrenheit in the winter (Dec. - Feb.); 78 to 80 F in the spring (March -May) and warm up 82 to 84 F in the summer (Jul. - Aug.). We highly recommend using a wetsuit, mainly to protect you from the jellyfish. Also remember that the longer you dive, the colder you get.

We dive your profile. This means that divers and their partner/dive buddy stay underwater until either of them reaches 700 psi of pressure. Then the diver and buddy will need to ascend to the surface before the rest of the group, using the instructor buoy. We don´t cut the dives.

Our boat “ODYSEA” is 29´feet long. We limit our dive groups to 6 certified divers per Instructor/Divemaster. When we have beginner or rusty divers, we highly recommend that they have a private divemaster or do a refresher dive by boat so as not to inconvenience the more experienced divers. We specialize in small groups and personal attention. For divers doing certification dives, the limit is 1 or 2 students per instructor.

Of course. You can take the Discover Scuba Diving course in which an instructor will give you a short class and go through some exercises that you will then practise in a confined water environment. At the end of the practice, you continue your dive with your private instructor.

Since you don't have a lot of experience, you will need to have a private divemaster for, at least, your first day of diving.

We recommend this because we do multi-level computer dives, and you dive your profile. This means that if you can stay 60 - 75 minutes underwater with your tank, we dive that time with you.

We don't cut anyone’s dive time BUT that also means that if you are making less bottom time than the other divers, you must be able (as certified divers) to ascend (in a buddy pair, of course) and make your safety stop by yourself, following the sausage buoy sent by the divemaster.

By experience, we know that beginner divers sometimes need help to do this correctly. Since the safety stop is very important, we ask beginner divers to have their own private divemaster ($50 USD) to monitor their buoyancy and be sure that they will be safe at all times.

We ask that our rusty divers do a refresher dive by boat for their first day of diving.

The refresher dive by boat is a classic two-tank dive trip, but with a private instructor who will give you a short class in the boat, reminding you of the basics of diving, and will practice some exercises with you at the beginning of the first dive.

That way, we will be sure that they are safe at all times and enjoy a comfortable return to the water.

Yes, we do. Ask for them.

Yes, Nitrox 32% and 36% are available for an additional charge. You need to let us know in advance.

We don´t require it, but we HIGHLY recommend that you have it. You can get insurance from DAN ( DIVERS ALERT NETWORK) :

As long as we have the space on the boat, they are welcome to come on board.

The average is between $5 to $10 USD per tank. If you do a 2 tank dive, the tip will be $10 to $20 USD for each diver. The crew will appreciate it.

We highly recommend that you book in advance. This helps us to organize our groups in advance and give you a personalized service.

You need to fill in the online reservation request on our web page. As soon as we get your reservation, we will contact you and let you know what you need to do to finalize your booking.

Due to MEDICAL REASONS, we refund you the days that you could not dive.

Deposits are made through PAYPAL. When you arrive on the island, you need to pay the balance in CASH (USD or PESOS). We do not accept credit or debit cards. If you forget to bring cash with you, there are ATMS on the island that you can use.
