Comments This was our fourth or fifth dive trip to Cozumel, as on our first rip we fell in love with the island, the people, the Mayan culture and especially with the immense reefs. We dove with a few other operators, but were lucky enough to hear about Anita Divers from a fellow guest at the Presidente on our first trip and have been diving with them ever since. Our kids, 17 and 12 had the time of their lives. My husband has been diving for over 25 years, and absolutely nothing compares to the EXPERIENCE aboard the Anita. No cattle car here; the boat leaves out of the Marina South of town (past the Cruise Ships)and if you are staying south of there, they will pick you up at your hotel dock.
Scheduling is a breeze, as you can call Rudolfo (Owner) the night before for a dive the next day, or e-mail them the days of your visit. We get picked up at 9am at the Presidente, hand over our dive bags, and enjoy the day!!
The bilingual crew of Ariel, Ranz, Pino, Oscar and especially Ramone the DiveMaster Extraordinaire, take care of you like royalty, and provide a fun-filled, sure to see fish, great reefs, caves etc., day. The crew sets up your equipment, No more than 8 in a group, with 2 DiveMasters. All level of divers are catered to.
After the first deep dive, the Anita takes you to a scenic area for your surface interval and treats you to a delicious island lunch: Various salads, sandwiches, fresh fruit and vegetables and more. Plenty of fresh drinking water on board and soft drinks. Then a leisurely trip to the second divesite, and back at the hotel about 3pm. No rushing, no confusion, just the luxurious care and expertise of the BEST DIVE OPERATION ANYWHERE!!
