Comments Wife and I have 150 dives in 2.5 years. This was our first trip to Cozumel. Went looking on the internet for small, attentive, dive operation and we found Alison. She was everything we had hoped for. She was prompt, at 8:30 each morning for 8 days she was at our pier at the Alegro Grand. We had arranged for 3 dives each day, and she was more than cooperative in choosing the appropriate sights for each dive. She would take a max of 7 divers, and Carlos assisted and drove the boat. We had all ranges of divers aboard each day from beginners to advanced, and she was able to make each dive enjoyable for everyone. Alison was extremely concerned for safty, without giving you the feeling of babysitting. Her rates are fair. Her personality is up beat and often humorous. She loves diving and the water, and she takes her diving very seriously. She was a great guide and able to point out critters that we would have passed right over. When we return to Cozumel, I wouldn't even think of diving with anyone else.
