Comments I have been diving in Cozumel for 25 years and have dove with numerous dive centers. I became involved with Deep Exposure as a result of being transferred to them because the dive center I used to dive with did not offer diving on Christmas Day, back in 2006. I remember being disappointed that my original dive center was not offering diving that day, but good things came out of that. From the first dive, Deep Exposure and their crew made me feel like a very special customer. I also was reunited with a boat Captain, Giovani Bacelis, and a Dive Master, Pepe' Moy Santana, who I had dove with when they were aboard the Yellow Rose. Both guys are incredible. The boat they crew is a large boat, with a bathroom onboard. Although it is slow, the time spent traveling to the dive site will give you the opportunity to get to know the crew better, It is a great dive platform from which to dive from. The Captain is a wonderful guy who knows Cozumel and its dive sites extremely well. The Dive Master, Pepe', is, in my opinion, the best Dive Master I have met in Cozumel. Extremely knowledgable and caring, he is also one of the funniest human beings I have ever met. Even though the day's diving might not be the best, he will brighten up any day on Cozumel and make his passengers feel as if they just had the best day diving ever. I have been on liveaboards around the world, yet I can tell you these guys make the dive experience the closest to being on a lliveaboard from essentially a day boat. The dives are fun, they set-up your tanks every day, they take the gear with them, if you are diving for several days, and rinse it every night and store it for you. Each morning your gear is set up when you board the boat. Each day they bring along a full lunch from fruit as an appetizer, to sandwich meats and cheeses for a sandwich, to sodas and water and a small desert. They genuinely care for each and every diver. I would whole-heartedly recommend Deep Exposure for any traveling to Cozumel.
