UW Photo Comments Adlora divers, safety minded, professional and experienced divemasters and boat captains.

1 Diver obtaining certification - Instructor was outstanding, calm, listened, patient with new diver. I would recommend new divers get certification with Aldora in Cozumel ocean setting.

1 advanced diver - obtained nitrox cert with Aldora

We stayed at the Aldora INN - clean, outstanding room and grounds are kept beautiful. Pool for relax or training, cleaning tanks for gear and cameras, drying racks for equipment and spare tanks for shore dive from the inn. Boats are very well kept and clean. On the boat you never set up your equipment, Aldora divers sets up and cleans equipment daily after and before dives. Long bottom times of 90+ min, with steel tanks. Aldora picks up at Aldora INN at 7:30am and back to Inn by 1pm. Surface interval on one of the nicest beaches. Adlora goes beyond catering to their divers. Dive shop is located in down town area and they settle the costs at end of trip. Discount for cash payment.

Reefs are teaming with tropical fish, coral, lucky sighting of a spotted eagle ray(rare), reef shark, turtles and large ledges that drop into the darkness on some reefs. Drift diving, current gives you a fun ride.

Aldora INN - rooms clean with maid service, relaxing and grounds kept immaculate. Pool for training/relaxing, chairs to relax, bikes to take to town and diving /snorkeling from shore.

This is Cozumel's best kept secret and I hated to brag about
