Suggested depth limits were provided on each dive. The divemaster would
stay with you until you reached the planned air pressure for ascent which
was usually 700psi. They did not set time limits. The night dives were
limited to 60 minutes. more than enough for the air supply and depth.

Every boat had a labeled camera tank. Some of the boats have a shelf or
sheltered area to work on a camera, but I would plan to NOT open your
camera housing on the boat.

As I have experienced for the last 4 years, Cozumel is one of the great
dive locations of the Caribbean. Scuba Club is an outstanding organization
and makes every effort to make your stay and dives enjoyable.  The rooms
are "spartan". No TVs but then you are not there to watch TV. If
your spouse is a non-diver and wants more than just quiet time while you
dive, you would be better to spend more money and stay at one of the other
resorts on Cozumel.  But if you want good food, and a focus on diving, then
this is the place to stay.  The divemasters lead every dive in groups of no
more than 6. There may be 15 people on the boat, but they drop you in
multiple groups. The currents of Cozumel keep the groups apart. They are
also willing to take "suggestions". I had dove with them on their
2 tank twilight dive 2 days in a row and we went to the same 2 reefs both
days.  On the third day, I approached the divemaster and asked him if he
would chose another set of reefs and they did with outstanding photo
opportunities as a result. The instructors are top notch.  I try to do one
or 2 specialties each year and each year the instructor makes it fun and
interesting and gives you truly personal service. I have had one on one
instruction every year. No groups to deal with and the prices are the same
as the states with groups.  The food is very good.  Each evening their
change the menu to vary the options.  Scuba Club is all inclusive but does
not include alcohol.  I did not care, but they charge $2 each for a plastic
cup of coke. I think they should include that or offer a soft drink
"card".  The reefs have really made a come back since hurricane
Wilma.  I was here 6 months after Wilma and the reefs are alive again. 
This particular week we saw turtles galore and several nurse sharks.  I was
fine in a 3mm shorty but I suggest a long 3mm for night diving.  All in
all, if i want to concentrate on diving in Cozumel, there is no other place
I would want to stay.  I will be back next year.
