Comments Each day your equiptment is loaded on the boat, then they ask divers which reef they want to dive. Boats handle any where from 3 to 12 divers. Business is off with the economy but they bend over backwards to accomdate even with few divers. Saw several green morays out swiming, about 3 nurse sharks, a number of turtles, eagle rays and the toad fish endemic to Cozumel. Dive masters keep an eye on everyone, both experinced divers and the ones with 10 dives under their belt. Very saftey conscious but give you the freedom to enjoy your dive.

I find Cozumel and Dive House to be one of the best dive operations.

I have been diving Cozumel for 25 years, it is #1 on my list.
