El Cozmeleno and dive operators
« on: October 15, 2008, 01:28:34 UTC »
I am planning a trip to Cozumel in April and we are staying at the El Cozmeleno.  I know they have a dive shop on premises, but it looks like it has a restrictive dive policy (time).  Does anyone know of any other dive operators on the north end of the island who will pick you up at the hotel?

Ocean Tours (http://www.elcozumeleno.com/english/activities-oceantours.asp) is onsite at the El Cozumeleno.  Mooooo.

Also serving the north end are Pepe Scuba at the neighboring Coral Princess (http://www.cozumel-diving.net/pepe/) and Scuba Du (http://www.scubadu.com/).

You should find these less restrictive & more fun.  They do real SCUBA.

Helpful?

The El Coz is a nice property.  check out Aldora for diving their villas are not that far from the El Coz they should be able to pick you up there.  I have been with the op from the El Coz but it is a cattle boat and for the distance to the south reefs not worth it.   When we dove with Aldora average time was 70-90 minutes depending on your air consumption.  Very personal service.  The small 6-pack boats do not have camera facilities - bring a towel you can do a rinse at the S/I on shore.  They are not the cheapest date in town but I consider them the best.    Divers are put with equal skilled for your entire trip.  web is http://www.aldoradivers.com.  Memo and his team ensure you have the best diving experience.  After going to Coz for 12 or so times I would not consider diving with anyone else
