Stayed at rebuilt Reef Club...lots of improvements since Wilma.  Food much
improved and service excellent.  Sand Dollar Sports is the dive operation
at Reef Club but won't dive with them even though as Reef Club member
receive nice discount.  Their boats are too crowded and they strictly
enforce their over-restricted dive profiles so experienced divers come up
with more than 1000 psi. Sand Dollar is ok for beginning divers, but
experienced ones probably won't like them.

Love Blue Angel Diving and have been diving with them two or three times a
year.  Jorge, their head dive master, is among the best on the island and
their other DM's aren't far behind.  Max of 8 on their speedy boats, they
will pick you up at your resort, and they will go where divers want to go
including trips across the channel to dive Tortugas.  Very safety conscious
and dive briefings are to the point and very informative.  One memorable
dive this trip was at Tortugas (where I saw a Bull shark and over 25
turtles in April) where Jorge thought we had a chance to see a school of
tarpon.  Well, it was more like a "herd" of tarpon as we drifted
through over 100 5-8 footers with nose to the current just holding above
bottom.  Incredible sight!

We were in Cozumel at the Reef Club when Wilma hit and returned in January
and April.  We took a group in April to repair two roofs on badly damaged
homes.  Blue Angel Diving/Caribe Blu Hotel has been a big help with
hurricane relief as they encourage divers to drop good used clothing at
their site which is picked up by a local church group and distributed to
those in need.  So if you are heading to Coz, pack an extra suitcase with
used clothing and drop it off at Blue Angel.

We are organizing another work group to go back in March 2007 to do more
housing repairs and anyone who would like to volunteer can contact me at my
e-mail address ( for more information.  We work in
the mornings and dive in the afternoon.  Lots of fun and tremendously
rewarding time to help those who need it.  If you are among the many divers
who love the people of Cozumel, please consider joining us in March or
perhaps putting your own work group together.  There is especially great
need for roof repairs.
