Comments We hadn't been to Cozumel in 19 years and had forgotten how good the diving is in Cozumel. We found the reefs & walls in good condition considering how many divers go there. The island is completely built up from the last time we were there but it is still fun.
We dove with "Dive with Martin" and found them totally awesome. Our boat was large and we had plenty of room. They don't put too many divers on the boat which was nice. Plenty of fresh water, fruit, snacks and other goodies. Our boat had a head that actually worked. The guides really knew the sites and were very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw nurse sharks, turtles, usual reef fish and lots of large green morays. Most dives were drift dives and boat captain was right there when we came up. Dive with Martin leaves the dock at 7:30 AM so our first dive was usually without other dive operators in the vicinity. I highly recommend this dive shop and will use them again in the future.
