Comments I have never written a review before (despite extensive travels), but felt compelled to comment on the fabulous, professional service afforded by Deep Blue Scuba. Deborah (owner) runs an extremely efficient and professional operation. The front office is accomodating and knowledgeable, sometimes lacking in Cozumel operations. My parents have been diving in Cozumel for 30 years, and I have been travelling there since the mid-90s, and this was by far the most pleasant diving experience we've ever had. When we preferred an early departure, Deborah was on the phone immediately and found another couple who also wanted to get an early start--this was at 8 p.m. the evening before!
We dove all of our dives except two (we dove a total of 10) with Sandro as our divemaster. Sandro was the most competent, friendly, and knowledgable divemaster we've encountered. With a collective 2500 dives between the four in our party, we found him to be professional, with the rare ability to be completely unobtrusive while also pointing out creatures we would have surely missed on our own. He fit into our group perfectly, and we will dive with Sandro and Deep Blue Scuba on every return trip to Cozumel.
