Liquid Blue Divers is one of 3 Cozumel operations that routinely offers the
steel 120 cf tanks and longer dives. Aldora and Living Underwater offer
similar services. Roberto and wife Michaela were very service oriented. LB
rinsed and stored all gear except wet suits each night and would pick you
up at a nearby dock every morning. The routine was a morning dive and then
lunch/surface interval ashore followed by an afternoon dive. They have a
roomy six pack boat that was in good condition. Roberto will take you to
any site that you request and is very conscientious with newer divers.
Unless everyone is diving nitrox you really dont get the benefit of the
big tanks. Diving with LB is a little pricey. They charge $80 for 2 tanks
not including tax and $2 marine park fee. I switched from Living Underwater
to Liquid Blue because I heard the LU was having some service issues.
However I met some people on this trip that were diving with LU and they
said the new owner/DM had all the bugs worked out. Although I had a
positive experience with Liquid Blue I would probably go back to Living
Underwater next time. LU charges the same price but it includes tax and
marine park fees, they rinse and store wetsuits and offer snacks and towels
when you get out of the water. That may sound a little petty but when you
are paying $80+ a day, the little extras matter.

The diving and visibility were excellent as usual. I am always amazed at
how healthy Cozumel reefs are considering the number of divers visiting it
every year. I saw all the expected fish as well as an enormous jew fish,
pipe horses, sea horses, scorpion fish, splendid toad fish and turtles.
