Very few restrictions.  Aldora dives big steel tanks and prides itself on
long bottom times (some well over an hour)with long surface intervals. 
Nitrox available.

Aldora Divers runs a very nice operation.  The boat picked us up at a hotel
pier near our beach house between 7:30 and 8:00 am each day.  This put us
first to Cozumel's premier southern dive sites.  (We counted 60+ boats
after one morning's dive.)  After a long, deep first dive, we pulled into
one of several beach clubs for a snack and a long surface interval.  The
second dives often lasted 70 or more minutes, then back to the pier by noon
or shortly thereafter.  Even though they only dive 2 dives per day, divers
get plenty of bottom time.  Safety-conscious divemasters be sure to employ
an extra-long safety stop.  Diving nitrox on the second dive helps, too. 
Our skills were respected and we were kept on a small boat all week with
varying combinations of 2 to 5 other experienced divers.
