Comments The boat crew and dive masters work as a team to bring about the best service around. These guys are way too much fun. The senior dive guide Roger knows the reefs, swim throughs, and tunnels, having been guiding tours for more than five years. His ability to find small creatures and point out distant life is extraordinary. Going with him is getting a custom u/w tour of the park. And he can coach you on dive skills to maximize your bottom time. I had 10 dives and averaged 85 minutes each (bottom time) over the week. It was fantastic to be given the freedom to work on the air management to such a level, in addition to getting my money's worth to see these beautiful reefs for the days dives. Pepe makes a different lunch every day and he is very creative and a good cook. His assistance in gearing up and exiting the water was very attentive, helpful, and careful with the dive gear and camera. He has a great sense of humor and makes you feel special. The captain does a great job with the boat and is very safety oriented for all the dive operations. I have been diving in Cozumel for over 20 years and this operation is one of the best if not the best in my opinion. The boat can hold 18 divers, has large swim step, head, and shaded deck area. Definitely not a Cozumel cattle boat!!! Highly recommended!
