Only got 3 days of diving in before Hurricane Wilma hit the Island with a
venegance and battered the island with Category 4 winds for 36 hours.
Although the resort sustained damage to some of the ocean front rooms, the
boat pier and beach area, it weathered the storm better than the 5 star
hotels up the street. The staff made sure everyone was safe during the
storm and did a fantastic job getting the resort up and running again after
the storm. Although we couldn't get off the island for several days after
the storm due to the damage at the airport and power outages across the
entire island, the resort ran their generator for several hours each day to
make sure we continued to have showers and hot meals. Since diving was out
of the question, the guests occupied their time snorkeling, helping the
resort staff clean up, and wandering through San Miguel examining the
damage. By the time we flew out 5 days after the storm, the island was well
on its way cleaning up and getting back to normal. Scuba Club Cozumel was
reopened by mid-November 2005. Our group will be returning again in October
2006, hopefully with calmer weather.
