Carlos is all a good dive master should be. He puts safety first, takes good care of all his divers and makes new divers feel comfortable. He finds tiny treasures like nudibranchs, pipe horse and porcelain clown crabs. The dive sites in Cozumel are consistently good, we often see spotted eagle rays, nurse sharks and morays as well as all the usual colourful fish and sea creatures. Fresh fruit and lunch are served after the first dive, a cooler with water and pop keeps divers hydrated throughout the day. Dives can last as long as 70 min., if you come up early, Carlos will put up his safety sausage and Antonio (best captain in Cozumel) will spot you and pick you up. Comfortable big boat with shade cover, head and lots of happy repeat customers.
